Once you're pretty sure the person you're drinking coffee and/or sleeping with fancies you, it might be time to check out their living situation.
As well as finding out whether or not they're married ('gift'), consider also investigating if they are a 'mambo' - the word for someone who lives at home with their mother.
It rhymes with 'sambo', the word for a live-in boyfriend or girlfriend.
That's probably a no-no as well, but we'll let you be the judge.

You can also get asked to go for a fika by someone who fancies you, or someone you've already slept with (but perhaps barely spoken to). But whether you're officially on a date or not, Swedes are obsessed with coffee, so at least start off on the right foot by ordering a latte rather than a lemonade.
If you're confident you are being hit on, the word for this is 'ragga'.

When you’re in love, you surely need to learn the phrase “Jeg savner deg”, which means “I miss you”.

The best way of saying “I love you” in norwegian is to say “Jeg elsker deg”.
