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!

    Isn’t he with Kate Bosworth? Seems like the type to like blondes without much curves. Tiger’s wife would be perfect for him. She needs to get on that.

      Well he probably does like curves but there aren’t to many in hollywood 😛 In general though real blondes dont date real blondes much any more that they are scarce..personally i care care about hair or skin colour if your hot your hot…he;s Hot!!! 😛

    Who wouldn’t like the idea of being in a secluded cottage.. especially with Alex!!! Did it every summer when I was growing up and camping at the primitive campsites.. Loved it then and still do! I think it’s all about how you were brought up and the area that you were raised in.. more of an acquired taste. But that is just me.. LOL!! No insult intended in any way!!

    oh my gosh aah i love alex so much 🙂 i wouldnt mind dating him, if he came to England even though he is 17 years older than me haha x

    Thanks Janie. He is soooo adorably cute in so many ways. I’d love to visit that cottage and he had me at older women. I’d definitely fit the bill. Now, if I could only get my husband to agree. lol 😉 But seriously, he is a delight and I wish only the best for him. I truly hope he finds that trusting woman he’s looking for. I wonder if he knows just how many women are sighing and swooning right now. I know I’m one of them. Kisses Alex!!! 🙂
