Flirting in Swedish

I am learning Swedish, and was surprised to find that there is no flirting bonus skill for it. Could we please add this?

No.

Us contributors don't like it for a number of reasons. They're just cheesy, boring and worn out lines that many women are tired of hearing anyways. If you want to flirt in Swedish, you'll just have to learn a little and then try to, like, actually be original and creative. Figuring out or translating original and funny sentences could be good practice. :)

Women may be tired of them, but I don't want to pick up women. ;-)

Good point. ;p Point still stands that we don't like it though. It won't be built.

From studying the French module, I agree they're cheesy lines, but that's part of the fun! That's why it's a "bonus" skill. I'd never actually use any of the pick up lines, but they still make me laugh. Besides, you could make the Swedish one use actual lines you might use when on a date. ;-)

I actually think the course equips you quite well to leave a nice impression on a Swedish person. Managed to speak mostly in my duossvenska dialect at the bars in Stockholm lollll
