This has become very popular in Sweden even among the older generation of women who often took on a more traditional caretaking role — caring for children, parents and their spouses. They look at their kids and grandkids and get inspired. To me, it sounds a lot like dating and I don’t understand why there has to be a specific term for it. But I love the fact that women, as well as men, stretch the norms to suit the way they want to live.
