Office Girl - I am quite sure you will have no problems in Zurich. The dating scene is not great, but there are decent single men out there.....myself included:-)
Wooaahh!! Hold on there young man. We may have come to loathe and detest our beloved OP, but OfficeGirl has provided us with a marathon thread of amusement, drama, romance and intrigue, and therefore we now feel responsible to protect her virtue.


So you're going to have to go through us first I'm afraid.

And as FuriousRose pointed out, you probably don't qualify. You're from North of the Wall, and Winter is coming...

Let's see first how much land he owns and who are his parents......If promising we might treat him with a little bit of indulgence...

Page 36 by now and I am still not sure if the tread or the OP is the bigger train wreck.

Re: London vs Zurich

Guys thanks!! Your latest threads made me chuckle - I realize that I must sound really radical but I can honestly say that I'll never be the same again after my time here!!!

By the way I've opted for Zurich!! Because I miss my family and I want to be close to nature!! Obviously not for the dating scene...I just don't feel like going back to London...and even though the dating stats point in favour of London I'm going to follow my gut and opt for Zurich

I'm glad it ended on a Friday. Otherwise, it would not give a good impression on a general dating scene in Zürich, don't you think?
Oh look what I just did....

I'm game!

My requirements for a partner: PhD (or equivalent doctoral title from a top 10 institute), Equivalent income earning potential (or big enough nest egg so I don't have to work and can continue my lavish lifestyle), Blond healthy thick hair on the head (no body hair elsewhere), blue eyes, body shape similar to 20 year old Jessica Alba (larger breast are accepted as long as no risk of sagage), doesn't wear make up, grannie panties a no-go, exceptional cooking and cleaning abilities, good at hockey, enjoys video games, enjoys a partner with a drinking problem, not shallow, extremely funny and a child at heart, doesn't go to the gym, lazy, unmotivated and scoffs in the face of anything that requires effort, doesn't read books, snob opinion on films. Glasses are acceptable.

I think that about sums it up
I don't look for much in as man. Only that he is: handsome, strong, tall, healthy, rich, attractive, humorous, sexy, athletic, faithful, clean shaven, reliable, sociable, ambitious, successful, sensitive, charming, muscular, sincere, interesting, fascinating, punctual, non-judgemental, sensual, brave, gorgeous, good, friendly, authentic, committed, loving, respectful, driving expensive car, honest, protective, attuned to feelings, experienced, involved, energetic, lovable, calm, understanding, sweet, non, warm, helpful, good dancer, chivalrous, righteous, good cook, good in bed, able to fix things, irresistible, seductive, funny, fashionable, caring and willing to feed me ice cream every night for the rest of my life.

Unfortunately, I don't meet your requirements due to my lack of punctuality. But with such basic standards, I'm sure you'll find someone in no time at all!

The poor soul!
Don't lower your standards: all of the above plus own land&a mansion, think independently (except when he must think exactly like me), be crazy about kids and have the kindest and most understanding parents.
