Can you name some?

He's asking for nice people, low crime rate, gorgeous scenery, and sexy and sexually liberated girls.

Translation = some isolated place where there are very, very few people, little to no human infrastructure to mar the natural scenery and environment, no employment opportunities, and the "girls" are loose and poorly educated having only their bodies to bargain with.

I guess there are still a few places left on earth that are like that.

Strange comment and totally not true. Work on your reading comprehension. Those were observations while in Sweden for a few days. Sure, there are many touristy things to do there. However, the OP also wanted to know about the general appeal of the female population(not that good).

It depends on where you are talking about in Southern California.

For instance, if you are talking about Los Angeles then no, I'd resoundingly take Stockholm over it without even giving it so much as a second thought (or much of an initial thought in the first place). To me, no question, I'd rather have Stockholm's build, style, infrastructure, architecture, culture, economy, location, quality of life, standard of living, political outlook, and the like over Los Angeles'. Los Angeles is a great world class global city but not one for me, not at all. It's too large to work efficiently with the way it is built and that contributes to added congestion, traffic, somedays maybe pollution, and it shortens your time to be able to enjoy the city.

Now if you're talking about San Diego, then that is another question altogether. San Diego is much cleaner, much more economically stable, much less congested in stores or venues, significantly less traffic, has a big size but the size is still manageable to where you get big city amenities without it ever feeling like things are in excess or overdone. The standard of living and quality of life are great and aesthetically the city is well taken care of. It looks exactly as beautiful in photos as it is in real life, you don't have to cherry pick between parts of the city to depict that, majority of the city is aesthetically well taken care of and looks presentable. You get every advantage that Los Angeles has without the drawbacks and if there ever is anything that San Diego lacks (which is a very short list of things) then you can just make the 2 hour drive north to Los Angeles for those things any weekend. Or if you have a pressing need, then any day of the week. I like visiting Los Angeles and it is most certainly a very fun city, huge to the point where it gives you so much to explore but happy I don't live there and I want to keep it that way, I don't ever want to live in Los Angeles.

So if you're referring to Los Angeles, then I wont even think about it and will just automatically choose Stockholm. I know all Stockholm has to offer and that combination of things appeals to me more than anything Los Angeles can conjure up, it's just my personal preference. However, if you're talking about San Diego then it is close to a draw and I can go either way with it. I have just as much reason to pick Stockholm as I do San Diego and both appeal to me in different but nearly equal ways.

As for you and which works best for you, you have to give more information than that. Your requirements are still very vague, these are two vastly different areas of the world and you will have to be a bit more specific than that.

Thanks to all that respond

What do you mean by sexually liberated?

You were in Stockholm a few days and judge all swedish women from your observations?

Dude, didn’t say all. Many appeared overweight/unattractive. I like women who are in shape, exercise regularly, and care about how they look.

You were in Stockholm.
Sweden is so much more. What makes you think you can judge a whole country?
