William Adams is a world traveller, game and culture writer from Sweden. Naturally he would be the perfect guy to write an article on Swedish girls and what they are like. Enjoy.
Since I have lived in Sweden my entire life – apart from manifold trips and stays in almost 50 other countries – and see the girls in Stockholm every day, I can give a fairly broad and nuanced answer to the question how the Swedish girls are. I can also say something about the most appropriate methods to pick up girls in Scandinavia’s largest country, both population-wise and geographically.
The broad beauty bell curve
People might have heard about the bell curve, often linked to statistics on IQ scores. White males in particular tend to have a very broad bell curve: really unintelligent and intelligent men (80-130). White women are more clustered in the middle (90-115), although they have their super-smart fractions as well. A bell curve can also be used to explain the level of beauty within a particular country.
Some countries have a more narrow distribution of female beauty. For instance, most women in Sri Lanka are clustered somewhere between 2-6 points for looks. There are a few 7s and 8s but then I mean really few, whereas in Sweden there are of course not many 9s and 10s but you can at least find some of those, and there are a lot of 6s, 7s and 8s.
Sweden has a very large and wide variation – from the lowest to the highest and everything in between. So expect a lot of ugly and average girls, some of which are fat, pretty much everywhere, including towns and really small cities, but the largest share of the really good-looking ones are clustered in Stockholm, specifically around Östermalm and at the more competitive universities and institions like Uppsala, Lund, Karolinska institutet and Handelshögskolan. I am not saying that all girls are pretty there – far from it – just that they tend to show up at those relatively high-status locations. You could also try Gotland or Båstad during particular summer weeks (Stockholmsveckan or Tennisveckan), but expect fierce male competition. Pretty low ROI.
How mass immigration and multiculturalism affect the sexual marketplace
Like many may have heard of, Sweden has accepted a lot of
economic migrants refugees from all around the world, especially South America, Africa and the Middle East. Too bad many of these are males – numbers show that for every 100,000 females there are 125,000 males. This number is largely driven by economic migrants from Africa and so-called unaccompanied refugee children from Afghanistan that have come during the least years.
Sure many of these guys are no competition, since they have poor private economy, low education, and do not look good at all, but some exotic guys are really handsome and girls might sometimes prefer them for whatever reason. Since there are so many different nationalities there is no novelty factor whatsoever any longer: girls have seen it all, at least in cities like Stockholm, Göteborg, and Malmö, but also in smaller places.
As for girls there are a lot of variation and you may find many who look typically Nordic, but also Latinas, Arabs, Africans, East Asians, as well as those who originate from other parts of Europe (Poland, Russia, Finland, Balkan, etc).
That is a good thing and over the years I have dated girls from pretty much all of these regions. Of course Scandinavian-looking such dominate, but if you are open for different types of females you could find many foreign ones as well. Likely some of them are a bit more traditional and feminine, or have not at least internalized contemporary feminism to the same extent.
Game and fruitful locations
Like I have stressed before, being open for different types of game are almost always to a guy’s advantage. Hence use all main kinds of game.
However, be aware of that night game does not really exist in smaller places (or they do only have one bar or club to go to), and there are much less options when it comes to online game. In that regard the bigger places like Stockholm and Göteborg are definitely preferable. Unfortunately I am afraid that dating websites and apps are becoming worse; still an app like Maybe might work, and there is always Tinder, but don’t expect high-quality girls meeting you. Between 2011-2016 I used a website called Happy Pancake, which was far from perfect was for free and a decent number of attractive single girls, but it has become much worse. Match is more for “serious” dating, but expect at lesst 10 thirsty betas for every average or good-looking gal.
Therefore I think that as far as smaller towns/cities are options, look out for specific events like Dansbandsveckan in Malung. Or go visit a medium-sized city like Karlstad, Gävle or Sundsvall in summer, since local girls tend to be more responsive to non-local guys (and well, guys in general) during the warmer months, June-August. June is generally a great month in both Stockholm and smaller places. Many are looking for a
bang flirt or two, whether through social circle game, online game or night game.
Regarding social circle game, one should notice that it is hard to penetrate social circles at many places around the world. Sweden is no different. Thus try to find circles that are more easily penetrated – both literally and metaphoricallly speaking – since they are linked to universities or other more international contexts.
One of the best ways to go is to be involved in the bar and dinners events at a specific University, regardless of geographic location (Uppsala, Lund, Linköping, Karlstad, Örebro, Umeå, Dalarna etc). Obviously that is easier if you are a student there, but often you can just show up and be involved. Try to find a course to study if you are not a real full-time student and sign up for to work at some event. Try to climb the social ladder as far and fast as possible, since that will give you easier access to a large pool both native and non-native girls.
For instance, a friend of mine from Iran, scored over 100 girls (mostly international students) in one year, but he looked good and had strong social and verbal abilities. Looks, condidence, and social skills are always good to have, but once you have a little bit of that other things matter more. But to just be an unprofessional bartender is better than nothing.
A second option would be to visit some language café/course at a university. In that regard Stockholm is almost as good as those universities which are located in smaller cities.
Sweden and its women has pros and cons, but given that you look at least okay and have normal social skills – if you know where to go and use appropriate methods you may find many girls to sleep with, both of native and non-native origin.
