But don’t be too picky or you’ll find your options are limited.It might not be scientifically accurate but as one reviewer expressed it: “there’s nothing like the thrill of getting a message from a 97 percent match”. Despite the English name it is in fact one of the most popular dating sites in Sweden for Swedes, with over 230,000 active members. Through the site’s search function you can search for people with the same interests as you, as well as criteria such as height and age.
Fed up with casual hook-ups and looking to settle down?
This is a no-nonsense site aimed at “serious singles”.
Boasting “sophisticated and highly-educated singles”, it attracts a more mature audience than Badoo and Tinder. New members must first complete a personality test before filling in a personal profile where they can also upload photos.
If you’re a bit of a snob when it comes to dating and would rather see someone’s CV than a list of their hobbies and interests then "Elitsinglar" (literally “elite singles”) could be for you.
In addition to bringing singles together, the site also styles itself as a guide to the best cultural events in Stockholm, Gothenburg and also Malmö, where the site was founded. Targeted at foreign professionals working in Sweden, The Local’s very own dating site is an expat dating community of around one million members.
