12 Most Important Traits of Finnish Women Rated 1-10 (+ Overall Score)
I know that physical appearance isn’t everything. To truly feel like you know someone, you need to get to know their personality traits too.
As a preliminary hint of what are Finnish women like, I will introduce you to both aspects – physical and personal, since they are both equally relevant when we talk about whether to date someone or not.
Let us start with these first!
What Physical Traits Make Finnish Women Different from other Women?
It is known that men like to visualize things and to get interested in someone there must be a spark in the first place. We are visual, and we can’t help it!
As for hot Finnish women, this is all I have to say concerning their looks.
1. Physical Appearance
If you really want me to generalize, Finnish women aren’t particularly tall. You will, of course, find them in every size and shape, but their average height is some 5’ 4’’ or 165 cm.
Interestingly, in this category, they are better than they Russian neighbours, who are just a tad shorter.
Next, Finnish women body type is usually such that they are short and proportionate. Again, some Finnish females do not fit this description and are instead rather tall.
What adds to their good shape is that they like sports and they practice them every chance they get.
However, they are not into those sports traditionally perceived as “male sports”. No, figure skating is their thing.
Accordingly, they are sooo well-shaped that you won’t be able to resist the hot Finnish girls.
Health is a rather important issue in Finland.
They cherish such culture that one must always take care of its physical and mental condition.
While it’s true that the depression rate is rather high, they cope with it the best way they can.
Anyhow, I believe it is enough to say that Finland is among the top 15 healthiest countries in the world.
3. How stylish they are?
One of the frequent Finnish girl stereotypes is that they are always in ski suits or spandex in general.
You are wrong if you also think this, my friend.
Finnish women are chic, and yet they are not slaves to the latest fashion trends and novelties.
They like to show off their lovely figure and seduce you accordingly, though they are not as aggressive in the undertaking as Latinas are. They are moderate and yet attractive and pleasing to the eye.
Moreover, they do not care so much about putting on make-up everywhere they go, so they cherish the natural looks.
Finally, allow me to say that they will choose casual and comfortable wear for any occasion, and still look stylish, even without the high heels or tight, short dresses.
4. Facial beauty
In terms of facial beauty, typical Finnish women have pale skin and light coloured eyes.
The hair is also blonde, i.e. various shades of natural blondes (I would tell you all about these, it’s just that I was never able to distinguish so many shades of it).
In this sense, they are very similar to Russian and Slavic girls in general. (Un)Luckily for you, their similarities with Russians do not extend beyond facial beauty.
And just to add – they are all equally gorgeous!
These were some of the crucial physical traits of beautiful Finnish girls, so we can now focus on the next category.
Additional Rating – The Tinder 1000 Swipe Rating
On top of the four physical trait ratings for Finnish women, we have also created our own additional rating from the Finnish girls we see on Tinder. We call it the 1,000 Tinder swipe rating. It is extremely accurate and gives a very good overall picture of the single women and how attractive they are.
This is how it works.
We swiped through 1000 different profiles in all of the major cities of Finland and took note of how many beautiful women there are. We jotted down how many 8’s, 9’s and 10’s there are based on their profile pictures. Here is a quick breakdown.
- 0-100 is poor
- 100-200 is OK
- 200-300 is Good
- 300 – 400 Is Incredible
- 400 + is Mindblowing (There are only a few of these)
With a Tinder Plus subscription, you can teleport to anywhere in the world and swipe for yourself. Find out more below In the section about how to meet Finnish women. Also, make sure to check out my other country guides to see how their Tinder scores compare.
What Personal Traits Make Finnish Girls Different from the Rest of the World?
International dating is a tricky business. Even though you might like someone physically, sometimes your personalities do not match. Sometimes it’s just the person, and sometimes it’s the cultural differences.
As for women of Finland, there are no reasonable obstacles to liking them. Still, check out my highly subjective ratings.
1. Do they Like Going out and Having Fun?
Sexy Finnish girls like going out and having fun very much.
In case you forgot where Finland is, it is in the far north and as a consequence, their days are shorter. So, these girls like to use the little daylight in the best possible way.
Besides, they like to go out in the nightclubs too and enjoy partying with their friends. Especially during summer, most of the night clubs set the stage outside. This is one of the best ways to meet girls while having fun at the same time.
2. Chill Factor
To repeat, Finland is a liberal country.
Sexy Finnish women are liberal women.
They are so chill you’ll sometimes even forget about having a girlfriend. These lovely ladies aren’t clingy or dependent upon you.
Of course, they like having you around, but they also like to have some quality time apart.
They will let you grow and will not stifle you with mundane trivia.
Due to their liberal views, people are prone to believe some Finnish women stereotypes such as how they are unfaithful or big cheaters.
This is far from the truth.
They have strong beliefs and they stick to these. And, once she has chosen you, there’s no need to worry about other men in her life.
4. Good as Mothers
I already said that Finland is a very liberal country.
Accordingly, when raising a child, a mother and father play an equal role in the upbringing. Here you can forget about the mothers taking maternity leaves exclusively to take care of a child. Fathers do this as well.
But, this does not mean that pretty Finnish girls do not play their role properly. Nope.
They are caring and tender mothers that teach their children to be fair and honest in the first place, and that it’s not important how much and what you have if you don’t respect the people around you.
5. Meeting and Talking to New People
Finnish is the nation of tall, white people. This sounds a bit racist, doesn’t it?
Well, on the contrary. If you aren’t white, you are even more welcome to the country. Not to mention your popularity among all the ladies.
Finnish chicks are known to be very open to new people and especially to foreigners. And, if you are of a different colour, international dating chances for you are way higher here.
I’ll just say – ebony and ivory. Mix and match. Have fun.
6. Are they Romantic?
Although girls of Finland are taught and use to being independent, they kind of like to have a little romance here and there. And everywhere. J
They are flirty and they will wink at you to help you make the move. But after this, you’re on your own.
Don’t go straight for the physical. Woo her a little. Don’t be a brute.
I said how chicks from Finland do not obscure their sexuality as we are (wrongly) prone to believe.
Still, they are aware of their femininity and they know you are attracted by their pale looks.
Again mistakenly, you might believe that Finnish women in bed are cold and passive. Believe me, mate, there will be times when you’ll wish they were. 😉
8. Gringo Card – How Likely are They to Date Foreigners?
Ok, the thing with these girls is that they like to date foreigners.
In some parts of Europe, girls might be prone to dating you just because you are their exit card. But the ladies from Finland need you only to take them to sunnier landscapes.
And as for money, they probably have it more than you do.
To them, you are an exotic fruit, so use this to your advantage.
Here I will conclude the part referring to their traits.
These women are highly educated and respected in their society. They handle businesses, take leadership roles and so much more you can think about what women do in a highly developed country, no wonder they were the first country in the continent to be granted the right to vote and to be voted for.
I know you are already loving these women, read further to know more.
Where to Meet Finnish Girls
Now that you’ve got acquainted with the Finnish girls and you decided to give a try to dating an Finnish woman, it’s natural you are wondering how to meet Finnish women in the first place.
I only have one word for you…
Treffit.suomi24.fi is a largely popular dating website in Finland and is highly recommended for international dating.
It is trusted by almost 2 million users which is significant data for you. So many Finnish ladies to choose from!
What I liked about the website is that the registration process is as easy as it gets – just give them a username and password, e-mail, name and date of birth, and your gender, and you’re good to go.
After this, there are two parts you need to pay attention to. First of all, include the relevant details about yourself and then define the preferences for the single Finnish women you’d like to date.
Once you do this, you’re all set to search for dates based on any criteria you like – age, sexual orientation, whatever keeps your engine going.
And the best thing of all – you can search for people even without signing up.
However, to communicate with and see the full profiles of the girls you like, you have to sign up.
As for communication itself, you can send messages, charms, or gifts. By the way, sending messages is already included in the basic version, which is a great benefit.
Anyhow, you can go premium and unlock unlimited messaging, giving yourself the opportunity to chat with 100 members. As if you had the time for that.
With this, I believe I resolved your dilemma on how to meet a Finnish girl even before you get there, so if you are planning a trip to Finland, start meeting locals even today.
Traveller’s Guide for Meeting Finnish Women
In the previous section, I gave you the ideal solution if you want to meet Finnish girls even before you are there.
Now, if you still have any doubts about where to meet Finnish girls, I will now give you three ideal places to have fun and meet single Finnish girls.
The capital of Finland is a magnificent city for all those lovers of natural wonders. The Northern Lights are best seen here and they are a perfect setting for meeting and wooing Finnish chicks.
Just imagine the walks under the fairy-tale-like lights. I am aware that for a guy, this is a bit unnatural comment, but honestly, I was completely amazed by the sight.
Now, that I’ve emasculated myself (:D), allow me to try and retrieve my masculinity by telling you that Helsinki has a rich nightlife to offer.
First of all, there are multiple bars you can go to and enjoy a relaxed evening. Among the many bars I’ve seen, I would like to draw your attention to Goldfish (their cocktails are delicious!), Teerenpeli (known for their home-brewed beers) and Ateljée Bar located at the top of the Hotel Torni.
Next, the nightclubs in Finland are a real attraction, since during summer nights they organize parties outside so you can drink and dance under the midnight sun. Yes, the sun, not stars.
Since I know you will not skip these, and you want the best of the best, this is what you MUST SEE.
Ääniwalli is located in a former factory and is an excellent choice for lovers of EDM and house music.
The next club you can’t omit is Kaiku, featuring numerous DJs playing anything from house to techno music.
As a final proposal, Bar Loose is the place to be if you are a fan of cheap beer and rock and roll.
It is unnecessary to mention that the distribution of local girls is equal in any of the above, so you’ll enjoy some lovely company wherever you decide to go.
This is a neighbouring town to the capital and is located in the Gulf of Finland.
It also provides for a rich nightlife and you can enjoy diverse settings.
One of the great places you should visit here is the Haikaranpesä restaurant. It might be an ideal setting to have dinner at with your Finnish girlfriend, once you find her. It is a sight-seeing restaurant which offers a marvellous view of the city.
And as for actual nightlife, you can try some of the local cafes, such as Café Mellsten or Bembölen Kahvitupa, situated in the King’s Road (not the one from GoT, you damn fool, that ain’t real!)
In addition, one of the best night clubs is Bada Bing which is very popular among the locals, especially the younger ones. Along with this one, you can also try Bella Ciao, which also functions as a restaurant during the day.
Sometimes it’s hard to reach a consensus on which is the second largest town in Finland, whether Tampere or Espoo.
Here, I will not go into this, but you will get the ideas where to have fun instead.
In Tampere, the choices are so versatile that you can go from a relaxed night in bars or a proper night out in nightclubs.
To begin with, a must-see place is Pub Kyttälä, with a very long tradition and is a legend among the locals.
If you are a rock and roll fan, then the Amadeus bar is the right place for you. It can brag by having multiple famous artists who performed here.
For those who are into a bit different kind of fun, then the Entertainment World Ilona will be your next favourite place. It offers karaoke, cocktail bar Saana, Bobby pub, live club and restaurant Villisika at the same place.
Social Club – need I say more than – inspired by Cuba? A hot Cuban experience in the cold Finnish surroundings. Perfection.
I believe that these are some good starting points for you to meet or take your Finnish date out when in Finland and I am sure you’ll find many other places to have fun.
Pros and Cons of Dating Finnish Women
International dating has both its good and bad sides. When dating Finnish women, these will be the good ones.
1. She’s down-to-earth
A Finnish woman does not act all high and mighty.
She cherishes the little tokens of affection and is not impressed by material possessions.
She does not perceive herself as having a higher value over someone else. She is aware of what she can or cannot do and does not assume the superior point of view.
2. They are fighters
Finland is a country with a very small number of sunny days, so the Finnish as a population are struggling with depression.
Women from Finland are not immune to this either, but they fight it with all their might.
And besides, they are used to cold, so while you will be freezing in their climate, she will be fully comfortable with it.
3. They are independent
Ladies from this lovely country that is Finland are among the rare ones to be given equal chances in everything. Although they still have so much to do to catch up with Denmark.
They learnt to take care of themselves in every possible way and they dispensed with the traditional gender roles a long time ago.
You won’t be expected to be the only one to bring the food to the table since she’s perfectly able to do that herself.
4. And, liberal are they, my friend
Once you meet a Finnish woman, you will be amazed by how easy everything is.
She has her views, you have yours. They don’t match, well, that is fine.
She will not tell you that you should believe this or that. You like Justin Bieber as a musician. Well, that’s OK too.
5. They got the skill
You know what I mean, right?
They will keep you properly warm in the cold northern nights. That’s all I’m going to say about Finnish girls in bed.
As for the bad sides when dating a Finnish woman, this is what you need to know.
1. Doing chores
For us guys from the other corner of the world, doing shores does not come naturally. We are wrongly accustomed to the fact that our female co-habitants do that, so we never bother.
With a Finnish girl by your side, you will have to accept these as a normal thing. And not just once a month. Every day, man. Every day.
Doing the dishes, taking out the trash, cooking, vacuuming, doing laundry, this is your life now.
2. Mind your language
Typical Finnish girls can often be insecure about their looks so one wrong step from you can ruin the night together you had in mind.
The question “Do I look fat in this dress?” is your archenemy.
Without any hesitations, answer this question with anything that means “No, you are not”.
But, you will have to be more creative than this, and what you are going to actually say depends on the situation and what your darling wants to hear.
3. She earns more than you do
OK, my female readers will now rant about what a misogynist I am.
But, this point is relevant only for those guys who feel emasculated by having a girlfriend who earns more than they do.
I personally do not have any issues with this (in fact, I find it to be more than fair), and neither should you guys. To put it in simple terms, Finland offers different living standards and this is what you need to make peace with.
How to make a Finnish Woman Fall for You?
Now that I’ve told you what to expect when dating Finnish girls, it’s time to introduce you to some of the Finnish women dating tips.
Read carefully to find out how to improve your chances of finding a Fin girlfriend.
1. Take part in doing the chores
I said already that the guys from Finland do this naturally. They don’t need to be told twice to do the dishes.
Damn, they don’t need to be told even once. They just do it.
Your Finnish lady has other things to focus on besides the household duties, so be prepared to do these all the time.
And don’t you nag about it.
2. Tell her all about and take her to your sunny place
We’ve already established how the Fins are struggling without a sufficient amount of sun and sunny days.
Your Finnish sweetheart will appreciate it if you take her to a vacation in the sunnier regions.
It will show her that you care deeply about her and that you’re not just messing around.
3. Language barrier
As an American man looking for Finnish women, you will not have any major issues with the language barrier.
A vast majority of girls from Finland speaks English.
Nordic countries are great this way. They are vastly multilingual since even from the early childhood the children are taught various dialects and variations of their language as well as foreign languages.
Naturally, English is one of these.
So, when dating a Finnish girl, you will be able to understand each other perfectly, since she speaks proper English. Chances are she speaks it even more accurately than you do.
Still, to truly impress your Finnish date, learn some basic Suomi (another name for the Finnish language). Alongside Hungarian, this is the only Uralic language spoken in Europe.
It might be a bit tricky at first, but learning it will show your Finnish girl that you truly care about her.
4. Appreciate the cuisine
Nordic countries are known for slightly different dietary habits.
In some regions of the country, raw fish is a true delight. So, you should develop a stomach for this since the food you are used to is completely different.
It might be tough for a while until you adjust, but give it a try. Luckily, your lady will most likely enjoy vegetable and mushrooms meals, but should you hang out with the guys, and they offer you some raw fish speciality, in her presence, don’t refuse it.
5. Give her time
During a night out, once a charming Fin notices you, and you notice her back, she will be all flirty, but not in a distasteful way.
Although liberal, these ladies are still cautious, so if you are thinking to score the very first night, then I must disappoint you.
Take her out for drinks and dinner, take interest in her and the things she does and likes. This is how you will truly win her heart.
A (Short) Selection of Most Beautiful Finish Ladies
Just before I conclude my humble writing on these lovely ladies, let me introduce you to some of the finest beauties coming from Finland.
Of course, you are allowed to disagree with my choice of hottest Finnish women, but I don’t think you will.
1. Kiira Korpi
Although the polls in Finland say that Janina Frostell is the sexiest woman alive in the country, my number 1 for you is Kiira Korpi.
She was born in 1988 and has had a very successful career in single figure skating. As of 2015 she is officially retired but is still very popular in Finland.
This beautiful figure skater is a triple European medallist. Additionally, she was the national champion five times (2009, 2011-2013, and 2015).
Her international fame was sealed multiple times since she was also the winner of Cup of China twice as well as a medallist in Bompard and the Rostelecom Cup in 2012.
In her homeland, she is also known under the nickname of Jääprinsessa (ice princess), derived from the fact that she is a figure skater bearing a physical resemblance to Grace Kelly.
Originating from a sports family, her father was a renowned hockey coach, she started practising figure skating when she was 5 years old and started winning her first medals even in the junior categories.
Her graceful moves are all the more appealing known that she is tall above average for a Finnish lady.
2. Pia Pakarinen
My second suggestion for you today is a beauty pageant contestant and winner.
Pia Pakarinen was born in 1990 and besides being a model, she is also a famous actress in Finland.
In 2011 she was crowned Miss Finland and represented her country to the prestigious beauty pageant Miss Universe the same year.
What adds to her good looks is the height, since she is 5’ 5’’ or 1.70 cm tall and with her blond hair, she truly resembles beautiful Russian girls.
Interestingly she gave up the title the same year due to differences in opinion with her team.
As for acting career, so far we could see her in Rope Trick from 2016.
She has also appeared in multiple commercials, most notably for cosmetics products and perfumes.
And, boys, you should check her out in Mercedes-Benz Super Bowl Commercial CLA. A hot blonde and a Mercedes, I think it’s a pretty great attention grabber.
3. Pihla Viitala
This good-looking lady is a famous Finnish actress who also played in movies outside of Finland.
Born in 1982, she can brag with a successful career in the film industry. Her first notable appearance was in 2007 in the film Ganes, while only a year later she played the lead part in Tears of April.
Her next prominent role was in Bad Family in 2010. The film is dealing with a rather sensitive topic of incest and was screened at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival.
As for the roles played internationally, she had a prominent role in Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters from 2013 and Italian comedy drama Latin Lover from 2015.
