Alexander Skarsgard Shares What Kind of Woman He’s Looking For

February 4, 2010 by  

Alexander Skarsgard, the sexy Viking vampire of True Blood, is still single, to the delight of women everywhere. In the latest issue of UK Glamour Magazine, he shares his dating checklist.

At 33, Alex has had experience dating some women who were older than him and some who were younger. He doesn’t mind either way, so he says he would like to find someone who is within about 10 years of him in age, but he could see himself being involved with a woman who is even 15 years older then him.

One of the most important qualities he values is trust. Without it, he believes no relationship can work. He likes to be thoughtful and show a woman how much he cares about her, but he also knows that money doesn’t equal love.

The woman who ends up winning Alex’s heart will be someone who is down-to-earth and comfortable without lots of fancy clothes and make-up:

“I don’t go for really dressy women. My family has a small cottage in the middle of nowhere in Sweden. It has no phone, TV, or shower. You have to swim in the lake to wash. I love it. Taking a girl there is a good indicator of whether she’s right for me.”

Alex has become very aware of the sex appeal of vampires since taking the role as Eric Northman on True Blood. He thinks women are drawn to that dangerous side. Plenty of fans have asked him to bite them, but he says he wouldn’t do that in public. Maybe in private, though…

It sounds like Alex is open to finding love. He certainly places value on important qualities about the character of the woman he will share his life with. Whoever she is, she will be one lucky lady!
