For the 4th episode of Private Parts Unknown—the 2nd in our Helsinki series—your favorite commuter companions, Courtney Kocak & Sofiya Alexandra, are thrilled to introduce you to dating & romance in the capital city of the happiest country in the world: Helsinki, Finland.

We delve into the “classic Finnish” quirks that inform how they approach dating, romance & happiness, including their hatred of small talk, their pursuit of self-improvement in the name of efficiency & their collective island fantasy. We also learn about popular first dates in Helsinki, explore the recent phenomenon of Finnish women “importing” foreign men for relationships & struggle with the difference between being alone and being lonely.

Thanks to the following people for lending us their voices & teaching us about their culture. Follow them on Instagram to find out more about their dope lives & businesses:
