Swedes sit as far away as possible from one another on public transport, we write passive-aggressive notes to our neighbours instead of confronting them


I was also surprised to find that visiting friends involved prior planning. You can't just show up at the door.


Swedes are good with general chit-chat as long as it doesn't get too personal. They say what they have to say, nothing more, nothing less and they don't talk if they don't have to. Even people you know will ask you how you feel, do so more to be polite than because they actually care. People seem kind of isolated, everybody doing their own thing in a strict manner following almost robotic routines. People here aren't spontaneous – you plan even the smallest thing weeks in advance.


Every house has the same decorations and everybody's dedicated to having them all up.

My Danish friends say: “The Swedes are a bit stuck-up and boring”

Maybe Sweden's just so fucking boring these kids feel there's no point in living?


This seems a likely factor now....maybe tying in with relativistic habituation; but the kids don't cut off because Sweden is so relatively happy compared to their historical suffering, more that it is boring/cold/dead compared to their exciting (sic (sorry))/traumatic/lively past.
