Falling for someone doesn’t come with alerts or permissions. You wake up one day, and their existence seems to fall in place with yours. Regardless of the differences between you two, you don’t choose to have a choice. And there you go; all of a sudden, it just is what it is. Here are 8 reasons you should date a Scandinavian.
Well, you’re in sheer luck if you found your significant other in a Scandinavian. Coming from a diverse and unique background, the Scandinavian has much to offer and makes your life 10x interesting apart from the dating domain. They are an all-in-one package.
To provide you with a glimpse of what it would be like and why you should date a Scandinavian, here are the top eight reasons:
They Are Warm And Sweet
Scandinavians get recognized for their warm and sweet nature. One may not get the hang of their vibe in their first go, but with time these passionate people reveal their hidden and more wondrous side.
What’s more, Scandinavians strongly believe in taking out time for those who matter even in their busy schedule at all costs. They will skip their work if it’s due and make sure that they are there for you if need be.
With them, you need not worry about receiving a cold; Sorry, I’m a bit caught up right now. Catch up later!
Instead, you can confidently expect: Be right there!
And for this very reason, we believe dating a Scandinavian is quite satisfyingly wholesome. Not that everyone gets to experience this, but those who do, report so!
You Get To Enjoy Equal Authority
Considering that the share of responsibilities and authority is one of the primary debates between men and women in the current times, you may find this aspect of your Scandinavian partner to be the best. You will get to enjoy a fair share of responsibilities and command in your day-to-day life. Be it house chores or the bills, your Scandinavian partner will treat you as an equal and will expect you to participate equally.
The gender equality factor runs deep in their roots. Thus, if he is your man, expect less of gentleman(ly) habits such as getting you a chair, pulling the door, and whatnot. And if your girl’s Scandinavian, you need not be offended by her love for independence even in the smallest of things.
You Get To Explore Exotic Places
Dating a Scandinavian would mean getting access to the hidden, resident-reserved exciting spots at the iconic Scandinavian places. Sure, you can visit as a tourist too. But again, your significant other will know about all the amazing stuff that they don’t put up on the front for the public. Hence, endless joys!
And. Should you plan for marriage, prepare yourself for an enthralling and exotic honeymoon. Perhaps, a romantic Sweden or sandals honeymoon.
They Make Styling Easy And Effortless
By now, you would know at least one thing for sure: Scandinavians are both composed and intense. Coming from socially complex and intriguing lands like Denmark, Norway, or Sweden, these people learn to live well in a variety of challenging situations. And thus, have a firm command over things, naturally.

Their aesthetic yet practical fashion sense comes from the grounds. You will find the Scandi style of clothing revolving around neutral and solid colors. They blend minimalistic looks with sleek accessories. And when the temperature drops down below 40 degrees Celsius, you will find your Scandinavian significant-other layering up in the most aesthetically pleasing way.
And Setting Up Your Place Much More Fun
Along with their fashion sense, you can count on your Scandinavian partner to take care of the interiors too. Their command of neutral colors and minimalism grants them the ability to set up a fully-functional yet stunning room or lounge, whichever it may. Now, you shouldn’t expect your partner to somehow magically operate like a professional interior designer. Go with their taste in color and furniture, and work for it mutually to yield the best results.
You Would Get Exposure To More Than One Culture At Once
Perhaps, the most exciting thrill that a Scandinavian individual promise is their abundant cultural knowledge and highly integrated cultural self. Hence, you can expect to learn and even participate in a variety of different local festivities, such as All Saints, St. Martin’s Day, Midsummer celebration, and whatnot.
Plus, the borders between the Scandinavian countries are almost non-existent. You can expect loads of cross-country road trips!

Although this may seem a petty habit, it reflects a very deep-rooted and influential attribute, i.e., their ability to be down to earth. With them, you will find your clouds of stress, hesitation, and confusion clearing out. They will keep it all much comfier for you.
