Italians vs Swedes giving compliments

Source: "The Swedish Toolkit"

Italians are experts in the art of seduction. They have a unique way to charm by their use of words and the way they express emotions. The world has always been charmed by Italy and Italians. 

Frenchmen are not too bad either

Swedish men are a little more practical

They want to express the same thing

But do it in a more subtle manner

“Not only did I notice you had eyes, but I noticed they were blue”

They are telling a woman that they noticed her

Which is a big thing in Sweden

Swedish women are not used to receiving direct compliments

Keep that in mind

They could appreciate it

Or not

Do not overdo it

You may easily scare a Swede
