I get so many nice emails from you guys! Every now and then someone decides to drop me a line saying something kind. Even when I was absent from here, people stumbled upon my blog and told me how much they liked it – daily!
However, I get so many odd letters, too. People read this article on dating in Sweden (which is the most popular article on this site, it gets thousands of hits every week). Then they notice the name of the website. To them, the words Swedish Love Affair must be suggesting it’s a dating site.
Not only do some strangers wish to “get to know” me better. Some are also asking me about “hooking up with a Swedish woman”. Or a Swedish man. “How to marry a Swedish woman?” is a common question, “how to marry a Swedish man?” is another. Yeah, if I knew the answer I would have done it already, wouldn’t I? Haha!
Some people send me short versions of their biographies and attach photos to make it easier for me too hook them up with someone. They all tell me they’re nice and kind people. Maybe I should start an agency? Swedish Love Affair – dive into a love affair! That would be my slogan.
No, seriously. I’m considering filtering my email so it would sort out certain keywords. ‘Marry’ would be one of them for me.
A lot of things have happened since we spoke last. The biggest one is that we have moved to a different city. Hannes got a new job, which gave us a choice of a few large cities to move to (Stockholm and Copenhagen among them), so exciting! We almost moved to Stockholm, but however, at the last minute we decided for Gothenburg.
Gothenburg is the second largest city in Sweden, and is also the place where both Hannes and I grew up. Who would have thought! This means our families and most of our friends are always near, so we can hang out and Johannes gets to know them well.
We have only lived here a month or so, and so far I’m happy. I will tell you more in detail about our new place and other points-of-interest soon!
