As I come from Sweden I have met a Finnish man or two in my life and my dad’s girlfriend of over ten years is Finnish, so I have some knowledge about the Finns. It’s been said that even making a Finn talk is quite a feat. The point I’m making is that whilst Latin guys tend to get physical within five minutes of making your acquaintance and shower you in hugs, kisses and compliments, Finns are quite the opposite.OK I admit that I once fell in love with this blond hair blue eyed tall, smart and sexy dude. Do you want to know what has this puppy eyed Finn taught a tanned skinned Asian gal?I hope that women especially from other cultures dating Finnish men can understand their guy better after reading this article.Now, this is a gross generalization, I have to admit.Not least because my dad’s girlfriend is very, very chatty. The same can be said for many Finnish men, but on the whole they are not the most talkative men you’ll ever come across. On the upside Finns tend to make friends for life and when they do say something they mean it. If you want to make a Finnish man talk, there’s always vodka.Don’t overdo it, just give him enough to get him to open his mouth.
Maybe you love the food, and the culture, and the ethereal loveliness of the midnight sun and the northern lights.Or the summer memories of your friend thoughtfully waking you up after a hard night of partying and offering you a refreshing, laku shot to quell the headache.For purposes of dating however, I’ve found the Finnish man to be a fascinating creature of completely eccentric (albeit quirky! They don’t pay for drinks, but they always hold doors.After all, there are a lot of frozen lakes in winter in Finland.If you are a bit unstable on your feet, he will surely help you learn to skate better, which can be romantic as you will hold onto him for dear life making your way on the ice. This in turn means that they love running into icy lakes in winter after having had a sauna. And here’s the catch: they are often naked when they do it.
