I was also surprised to find that visiting friends involved prior planning. You can't just show up at the door. Also, the alcohol is very expensive in bars and clubs, while the Systembolaget closes too early and the beer is warm — that's enough to make people quit drinking altogether.

No one wants to buy warm beer. Lastly, I've never seen men hug so often anywhere but in Sweden, which is nice. On the first evening there, I remember I was told that people in Sweden eat dinner at 6 PM, which we would be doing from now on. I thought it was a joke.
See a Problem?
For me, 6 PM is still daytime. Who eats at 6 PM? Not even the chickens have gone to roost at that time. On top of that, we were told that we would be having salad, which I thought would just be some chopped-up vegetables. All I could think was, 'dear God, I'll starve by ten o'clock. It may sound very mundane to other people, but it was quite a culture shock for me and it took me a while to adjust.
I've been here for seven years now, and I still eat dinner at around 8 PM. Swedes are good with general chit-chat as long as it doesn't get too personal. They say what they have to say, nothing more, nothing less and they don't talk if they don't have to. Even people you know will ask you how you feel, do so more to be polite than because they actually care.

People seem kind of isolated, everybody doing their own thing in a strict manner following almost robotic routines. People here aren't spontaneous — you plan even the smallest thing weeks in advance.
