Some like to plan it small, to go abroad on a vacation and then maybe plan a small party for their family and friends at home in the garden.

Be prepared to pay for your things and I mean even if you’re popping into a store to grab some candy, he’s not going to just pick up the tab for you. Danish men can also falter a bit in the process because there are so many alternatives available to them.
my Swedish girl friends told me many Swedish guys are so afraid of commitment…which is sooo true!
