Other contries has got bit bigger and bit more dangerous spiders than the whimpish Swedish spiders, so if you say in any other contry than Sweden you got bitten by one people might actually belive you!
But if you live in Sweden and say something like that the nuthouse is your next resort.
as a child I got bitten by a Swedish spider...
After being laughed at several times and almost had my forhead stamped with mythomaniac I decided never to tell anyone about this again (here's a safe place, right?).
Then, at the darling age of 16, I met this devastating pretty boy (who later morphed into my husband), and after a few months I decided to let him know my inner secrets.
Took a deep breath, told him I had something to share that he might not belive.
I told him about the spider who bit me.
I was getting ready to have a big laugh thrown at me and that he would end this wonderful romance saying he can't be in love with a crazy woman...

He stared at my face.
His lips were slowly separated.
He took a deep breath.
Then he said:
"-You too! Noone has ever belived me when I told them I got bitten by a spider! Finally someone who belives me!!!!"
And there you have it - if that's not a soulmate criteria I don't know what is!
From that day forward we both know we were for ever :)
And how were we bitten?
- Me: I was about 8, sitting in the backseat of the car. All of a sudden something tickled me in the neck so I curved my neck to make it go away. Then I felt a sting, like someone poked me with a needle.
I whiped the place with my hand and down rolled a small, black ball. Not bigger than 3-4 mm.
I remember being so surprised and kept looking at it to figure out if it was a pebble of somekind.
Then it opened up - and it was a small spider!!!
(I'm not more scared of spiders than other bugs after that encounter)
- My love: He had a big pool in his yard. He was 10 as it happened.
One day he saw a poor spider fighting to survive as it was in the water. Since he is such a kind spirit he scooped his hand and lifted the spider.
As the water ran away the spider landed on his naked palm and as a "thank you" it bit the knight in shining armour!!! What a bitch!
