Not really... I just wonder if they are flirt. They seem so neutral in everything.

Interesting... let me read

I do not really think you can put together Swiss and Germans under the same category. Besides a Swiss Italian is not the same as a Swiss German o French..
However let's speak about the German kanton...

You first.

What made you join this forum and say nothing apart from a topic and a rather rude "say your opinion".

What's your opinion?

Re: Swiss people: hunters or preys? Or none of the two?

if it's about flirt (woman - man relation), we are like guys from other countries. Some are preys, some are hunters and some just don't care.

Or, if the OP des not have English as their first language: Well done. Your English is better than my level of language in any foreign one.

Have a good day, everyone. Remember to play nicely.

The Swiss AF retired their Hawker Hunters at the end of 1994.


Just Hornets and Tigers now.

Re: Swiss people: hunters or preys? Or none of the two?

Swiss people hunt cheeses, and then melt them in a big pot with some wine, starch and garlic. Then they devour their prey with devils' tridents and bread. It's actually quite nice.

Re: Swiss people: hunters or preys? Or none of the two?

Welcome to the forum, Majorelle.

It's a great place to hunt and be hunted.

As for the Swiss, they are bystanders. They like to watch and are glad not to be involved. Every man for himself (unless you're lucky to have good Swiss friends and then they'll go the full mile with you.)
