10 Reasons to Date a Finnish Woman

10 Reasons to Date Finnish Women
Finnish Model Janni Hussi

When it comes to interracial dating it’s a known fact that Black American men do well in Nordic Countries. Most brothas only know about the Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian women.

Finland isn’t a popular travel destination within the community so the Finnish women are unknown to most of us.

I’ve been living in the Helsinki area since June 2019 and I’m here to tell y’all to come check Finland out. So here are my top 10 reasons to date Finnish women.

1. Finnish women are beautiful

When it comes to looks based on country of origin, many men will say that Swedish women are some of the most beautiful in Europe. But I’m here to tell you that Finnish women are genetically just as beautiful. Like the Swedes, your average Finnish girl will have blonde hair, pale skin, and light colored eyes. If you’re attracted to women with these features then come visit Finland (there are plenty of brunettes too).

2. Finnish women are Independent

Finland is one of the world’s leading countries in maintaining gender equality and is an early pioneer. In 1906, Finland became the first country to grant its women full political rights. Finnish women are doing well financially and she will not ask you for money. If you’re a confident man that isn’t intimidated by feminism then you will do well in Finland. She’s a career oriented woman that makes a great companion to build your legacy with.

3. Finnish women are well educated

Finland offers its citizens high quality and free college education. As of 2019, Finland ranks 15th in the education rankings from high school to college. For a small country with a population of only 5.5 million people, it seems Finland is doing pretty well on the global scale in the education department. So fellas, if you like women with brains then date a Finn. Also, since this is a travel website allow me to inform you that Finnish women are well traveled. Finland ranks as the most travelled country in the world, with the average Finn making 7.5 trips a year both domestically and internationally. If you get the opportunity to find your Finnish queen then she will definitely be down to travel with you. Wanna go to her summer cabin near the lake just to relax and drink? She’s down! Wanna take a cruise to Sweden or Estonia, party all night with her, and head back to Finland before work on Monday? She’s down! She has vacation days during her Midsummer holiday? Wanna chill on a warm, sunny, and white sandy Southern European beach off the coast of the Mediterranean Sea? You damn right she’s down!

4. Finnish women are low maintenance

If you’re sick of high maintenance women then dating a Finnish woman could be your cure. Due to the climate, Finnish women dress casual comfortable and practical during the day. Unlike other nationalities, she will not spend hours doing her makeup and deciding what to wear just to go do errands.

5. Finnish women are open to dating foreigners

Finland is one of the whitest countries in the world but Finnish women are very open to interracial dating and even more if you’re a Black American. Finnish women complain about how Finnish men are too shy to approach them sober, they don’t express themselves well, and they can become belligerent if they drink too much. As a Black American, you will be like a breath of fresh air for Finnish women and you may have the upper hand in the dating field.

6. Finnish women are modest

Finnish people in general are modest and they do not like to brag about themselves or their achievements. Hypothetically speaking, if you were to meet a Finnish woman who’s a Nobel Peace Prize winner or a Miss Finland pageant winner, you wouldn’t know that unless you googled her. She’s not going to tell you and if she does, she will most likely downplay it. If you’re tired of American women bragging to you about their indebted $100,000 bachelor degrees, then date a Finn.

7. Finnish women are warm hearted (after you get them to open up to you)

Generally, most Finnish people are reserved, quiet, and a bit shy. When she first meets you she will act shy but after she becomes comfortable with you, you’ll see her natural kindness and become surprised by her unexpected down-to-earth personality.

8. Finnish women aren’t into playing games

Finnish women are honest and she will do what she says and say what she means. Finns are very punctual because in Finnish culture being late for anything is frowned upon. So if you plan a date with a Finn expect her to not flake and show up on time.

9. Finnish women are “Jack of all trades”

Finnish women are efficient in doing practical tasks i.e. repairing home appliances, changing car tires, carrying multiple heavy grocery bags, etc. So don’t get surprised if you meet a Finn who looks like a supermodel but will complete masculine tasks without one single complaint. Finnish women possess what they call here “sisu.” It’s a Finnish term meaning “to have strength, determination, and perseverance.”

10. Finland is a great country to raise a family

If you’re looking to start a family abroad then Finland should be on your list. As of 2019, Finland is ranked the 5th best country to raise children. Finland eases the burden of raising a family with free healthcare and education, maternity/paternity leave, great social resources, and a high quality life.

If you have any more questions about Finland or Finnish women then holla at me.

I always wanted to travel the world but I was stuck in the rat race of corporate America. On Christmas day 2018, I had a life changing and life threatening experience. After a night of drinking and celebration, I decided to walk to the store at night to buy cigarettes and an armed robbery tried to rob me. I only had like $9 in cash and my iPhone. In my stubborn, intoxicated, crazy, Krav maga trained mind I decided to put my life at risk instead of giving up my belongings and I disarmed the armed robbery. The guy had 15 bullets in the Smith and Wesson 9mm pistol and thank God I am alive today. After that day, I made a promise to myself that I was leaving America by any means necessary. I put my life into deep perspective and I told my lady friend of 7 years (who's my wife now) that I was coming to Finland.

  1. Those ladies in Finland, Sweden, and other Scandinavian countries are gorgeous and worthy of pursuing.

    It can be overwhelming because this world really has millions of women who are available.

    So, if we cannot find what or who we are looking at home, we can always go overseas.

  2. I attended the University of Michigan. Before moving to Ann Arbor, a friend gave me the contact information for a PhD candidate at U of M
    who was willing serve as a mentor. I called him on my first night in town and he invited me to his home. This guy had everything I was aspiring to attain: advance degrees, a nice home, a sports car, and not to my surprise beautiful women. I wasn’t in his place five minutes before two lovely, blonde and statuesque young women walked into the living room. He introduced them to me and said they were visiting him from Sweden. He met the two women while traveling in their country, invited them to the States and they accepted his offer. Obviously, meeting those two Swedish women as an eighteen year old left a life long impression. From that day forward I placed visiting Scandinavia on my list of must things to do. Your article has certainly renewed that interest.

  3. Hi Tarik, thank you for all of the travel updates you’ve been sending me. However, I searched the web to learn more about Finland after you sent me the info regarding Finland. Finland has been rated as the number 1 racist country in the EU in which I found very shocking. The Blacks that living in Finland said that the Finnish police be violently assaulting Black people, especially if they are caught with a White woman. I heard that Finnish be denying Blacks jobs, children get discriminated against in the primary school systems. The people that placed these websites about this information is all over the internet. Is this is truth or is this fiction? Because I am very worried about going to Finland after researching this info on the internet. Can you please let me know what is really going on in Finland about this information.
    Thank you for your time,
    Kind regards,
    Darnnel Mackey

    • Thanks Darnnel. I sent you an email with more information about these claims. Most of our writers are speaking from personal experience when we publish trip reports and city breakdowns. There will always be issues when traveling abroad but most brothas should have a positive experience in Finland. I’ve met a couple brothas who have been to Nordic countries and say it’s a great place for black men. Of course, everyone is different but overall you should have a good experience.

  4. Hey I came randomly across this blog and I thought that I should share my view as a black male that has been to Finland. I was there in June 2013 for a week and to be honest I wasn’t blown away by my experience there. The people in general were cold, the food was bland and I had the feeling that there was alot of segregation between Finns and non Finns living in Helsinki. Only the history and architecture impressed me. I think that all the black people that I saw there were Africans and they were always by themselves. I never once saw an inter racial black and Finnish couple together, but I am sure that they exist. Although I found many women in Finland like all the Scandinavian countries to be very attractive going there solely fro the women is a non option for me. Overall of all the Scandinavian countries that I went to (Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland) Finland would be the least likely that I would move too due to the coldness (people and weather), bland food, lack of integration, lack of activities and very different culture. Just being honest.
