Expressing Swedish Love


Source: "The Social Guidebook to Sweden"

People around the world express their warm feelings towards their fathers

 

Swedes are often more subtle in their praise and careful in their expression of feelings


While in many countries we learn to express feelings openly from a young age


Swedes often imply it


Rather than saying it out straight


There is not much facial expression


Not much body movement


Speech is indirect


If you are used to a culture


Which uses a lot facial expression

Body movement

Clear speech

When expressing feelings in a relationship

 

Be aware that Swedes means the same thing

They just express it differently

 

 

 

 

"Swedes are subtle in their praise and careful in their expression of feelings."
