LOL, fair enough- but a 'tomboy' is usually female

Translation - you think about sex all the friggin time and you pee standing up
I wish I could pee standing, that would help a lot when hiking.

Going to a high school with 900 boys and 300 girls, where all sports activities were introduced in the time before girls were admitted (ice hockey, judo, wrestling...) didn't help my tomboy tendencies, but I can assure you, I'm a 100% heterosexual woman. I just prefer drinking games and violent movies to romantic comedies.

The age of pulling everything off.

Hahahah. Not the nursing bra. Messy.
Btw, I realize guys can lactate. Wish I knew it a few years back.

I think we should get back to the original soap. Wishing OP good luck with his free girl (when she gets back). Share your intentions and see. We free girls appreciate direct, genuine and honest talk. People who know what they want and take the risk showing it.

Re: Is this the normal behaviour of Swiss girls?

Are you a nurse too? (sorry just jesting 'nursing' in the UK means something very different to 'nursing' in the US.. and well done from (sorry later edit) me too. I suppose 'for me too' (later edit) as I nursed both mine even if I am not a nurse).

God, we are derailing this thread completely... If you asked me, the answer is no on both count. I am not a nurse (unemployed finance gal), and I am not nursing. That would be kind of creepy given that the Troll is 6,5 years old.

Sorry about that, OP, but I still stand behind my earlier post.

1) it's a rather early in the relationship to be asking the other party to modify his/her outlook on life, and personally I wouldn't accept restrictions imposed by my partner. Ever. (But I do impose myself restrictions based on what's best for the family, I don't run off as I please)

2) either it's part of who she is and you either accept it or not, or it's a sign that she isn't fully committed to this relationship. Which could be absolutely normal given that you barely know each other (yes, I know, it feels like you've known her forever and she is the part of you that has always been missing but believe me, you're wrong).

3) if it's part of who she is, it's probably part of what's making her attractive to you. You can't have it both ways, if you try to cage her, she'll either leave or end up the bitter type. Bitter is never good.

Snacking is ok until the teeth come. And tell me about feeling touched out.

The interesting thing is - if one worries about being ignored before a relationship even starts, might not work when he finds out that guys are not always a priority for some chicks. Sometimes they cannot be prioritized, sometimes they don't know how to be. I think that's what's changing..I think the manifestations of this come in various forms. Traveling alone out of principle or with sb else, is a bit cliche, if you ask me, but whatever people need. I would only worry about gestures of independence that are too ostentatious, a smart and well adjusted person doesn't walk around with a manifesto written on her forehead.

Agree with you on the ostentatious independence need. In any case, once you are in a committed relationship (read: living together or at least committed to spending a faire share of the road together) you have to compromise on both sides. You also have to find the right balance when it comes to each other's need for time together and time apart. It's not always easy, and it gets even more difficult when there are kids in the picture. In our case, it helps that the three of us are all very independent; even the little guy is pretty vocal about his need for "alone-time".

I don't travel alone out a principle thing, I travel alone because I like to travel (especially walking in the mountains) while Trollefar is a more sedate kind of guy. He and the Troll are usually more than welcome to join, but if they prefer to stay at home to build Legos, I'm not going to force them. Likewise, shopping for Christmas gifts in Paris isn't very popular with 2 out of 3 members or this family. Once in a while I also really need the solitude, in which case I either go somewhere or the guys go to Norway to visit family and leave the house to me.

Same with going out, if I'm on a weekend trip and my best male friend invites me to the theatre and the restaurant afterwards, I'm not going to say no because my better-half is in Switzerland babysitting our son. On the other hand, that also means that when he is in Norway and I'm here, I don't object to his evening plans, as long as they are compatible with his married status.

In everyday life, we spend most of our free time together, but not all. I like skiing and hiking (he does too, but a lot less), he plays chess (I don't). I'm currently at home while he has a demanding job and travels a lot, hence in the weekends I have acute cabin-fever and want to get out of the house while he often wants to stay home and relax.

In the end it's all about balance and flexibility, none of which is usually attained after 2 months of being with someone. Hell, I know people who've been together for years and still struggle!

I think "nursing" in both respects (breast-feeding and caring for medically) is fairly standard on both sides of the beck. (Hence "Nursery" and "Nursing Home")

Yes and no. In UK common usage these days it wouldn't normally be used for breast-feeding, although many may be aware of that usage too. Historically the women employed to do it for rich people's kids were known as wet-nurses, to distinguish them from any other type.
