Also, tonight I’ll be answering your e-mails! Sorry for being so slow, but I’ve been really busy all weekend.
I get many questions about Swedish everyday customs, cuisine and how to say things in Swedish. Three of my readers e-mailed me this weekend asking if it’s normal that the Swedish guys they’re dating want to split the restaurant bill, instead of paying for both. Or if it means he’s not interested. So, I’d say this is normal and he probably likes you anyway, it’s just the Swedish way, and maybe 8 out of 10 Swedish guys would split the bill or the price of the cinema tickets.
As for the preparations for the Valentine’s. I love you in Swedish is Jag älskar dig (Yawg elle-scar day), and you’ll find more phrases in Swedish here.
