So You Want to Date a Scandinavian?

Thyra10

I have been contacted by more than one person wanting to date Scandinavian people or even marry one of us. My reply? Tough luck! Because Scandinavians don`t date. We hardly even have a word for it. The Scandinavian words for “date” is really old-fashioned and one my grandmother might have used but probably didn`t because I don`t think she dated either. So the few times we have to use the word “date” (usually to describe something foreigners do) we use the English word for it.

And we very rarely get married.

So how do we figure on top of these lists of “most happy people in the world?”, you wonder? And how do we procreate if we don`t date and don`t marry?
