Dating in Geneva

Hi everyone, sorry if my post is in the wrong place. I couldn't decide where was the best place for it.

I am moving to Geneva next weekend from UK and I was wondering if there was any dating sites to meet people on once I'm settled in? Or do people have social nights to meet people?

Thanks in advance :-)

Yes, I am sure that meeting a guy visiting for one week from Saudi will be exactly the kind of thing she is looking for.

Welcome JenniferJ,

What do you mean by dating sites.. Like actual real location or in the web?
Well, Gata seems to know real pleaces there .
For the web, I think parship.ch is the best now (i saw lot of their ads on TV).
Have you heard of Tinder? (if you up to that kind of dating...)

I thought it was sarcasm with a dash of racism myself.

No, probably just a gentleman protecting young British ladies. I mean, it's all right isn't it?

Well, at least you got the sarcasm part right.

I was referring it to being halfway around the world... his response to the OP was essentially the same you would ask of a call girl, and however it was worded, amounted to: "I'm coming to Switzerland for one week, lets randomly hook up". Or did you understand his post as: "Hi. I'm coming from Saudi for one week and really would like to start a meaningful relationship"?

I'm not a generally betting man, but I would wager that the odds that she was looking for that specific scenario when she started a thread about dating in Geneva are pretty slim.

This what he said...
"hi i am zezo
i will be in Geneva mid of Oct. for a week and it is the first time i may go to Annecy for have day i will be glad to know you "

This is what she said..." Hi everyone, sorry if my post is in the wrong place. I couldn't decide where was the best place for it.

I am moving to Geneva next weekend from UK and I was wondering if there was any dating sites to meet people on once I'm settled in? Or do people have social nights to meet people?

Thanks in advance :-)"

Now, neither of us knows what is in the best interests for each of those people...but I hardly interpreted from the gentelman from Bahrain that he was looking for a prostitute, nor did I gather from the OP she wouldn't be open to a fling or causal sex.
Sites like Tinder actively promote people travelling and meeting people randomly in this exact kind of way, and they have millions of users.

So the fact you pointed out where you thought he came from and also that it must mean he is looking for sex/paying for it...I really think it comes off as racist.

You probably don't mean it that way, but this world is not the same as it was for dating 10 years ago.

To the member who commented on my writing
It is surprising that be what you typed it outright sacrilege out of public taste and narrow vision where you accused me of builder man is only my thinking and focus on the vision of nationality only and this is not true at all and you have no right to accuse me so
I am a man my mind is concentrated in my head, but you concentrated your mind between your legs
I am an educated man, and holds a master's degree in management science


And my visit to Geneva to attend a course on management science for a week and look for a friend to join me time to see the beautiful Geneva landmarks and visit areas around Geneva
And I am a Saudi citizen and you do not have the right to insulting me because of my nationality and racist unpopular and I hope the participants of respect for others and their privacy and do not take a trivial jokes

My cordial greetings to all the Swiss who know about them all the love and respect for others
And you are someone who does not represent them


And if you're an educated man, and believes in the freedom of others
Wait for you apology commensurate with the mortification that you have made
