I'm looking for English speaking friends around my residence. I'm a female 33, with 100% employment in Zurich in an IT company and I'm living in Oberwinterthur with my Swiss partner. I'd like to get to know some people who I could meet after work, to sit in a park and talk about life, Swiss mentality etc. If I have a chance and find somebody a little sporty we could go for beach volley, hiking.. but the primer point is to have a soul mate in a foreign country. I was hoping to find those people among Swiss guys, but it just don't happen. Looking forward to read from you. Marione
I haven't arrived in Switzerland yet, but will be there in August.
Keep me posted if you want to arrange a catch up around Zurich area for coffee, vino, lunch or dinner.
I don't speak any German (although my partner is Swiss and speaks a multitude of languages) and I will no doubt find things a little hard initially.
It never hurts to make new friends.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

At the moment I m studying in Winterthur and would like to meet new friends here or in Zürich. I grew up in Basel but in Winterthur I feel myself like a foreigner because I don t know any body here.
I don't live in winterthur, but my family and I will be there this wkend my kids are Bmx racing come along have a drink chat and watch the exciting races ( I love watching the pros jump they are amazing )
Hi, we live just down the road from Oberwinterthur, it's a lovely area.
There is an expat community here and some things are organised through the Winterthur meetup group - http://www.meetup.com/expat-125/. Anyone can organise a meetup and there are monthly drinks in Winti.
I live in Oberwinterthur. I am Swiss but I'm married to a wonderful English man. If you would like to meet I am available. I am currently on maternity leave, I had a baby in June and sometimes I feel quite lonely. It would be great to get out of the house.
... and as a plus, I can explain the Swiss mentality
I will be arriving in Switzerland with my Swiss husband and 5 month old baby in three weeks. We will be staying in wald (Zurich area) and I would LOVE to catch up with other new mums around Zurich! I speak a TINY bit of German... Also I am looking for a travel cot and car seat if anyone can help out!
That must be exciting but also quite stressful to organise the move with a 5 month old. Have you ever been to Switzerland?
I would also love to chat to other new moms. I could also teach you German if you don't go to a course. I'm a teacher and I teach History and German.
That sounds great. I am a teacher too - secondary English and history. It's kind of overwhelming moving with the baby but we have some family there so it isn't too bad. And yes, I've been a few times before just never with a baby and never in the winter... I'll pm you my details and we could get in touch when we arrive! Thank you!
I am currently in Greece and i want to move permanently to Winterthur(lovely city) but I would like to find a job before I come there (...if that's even possible).
Because I am off topic( ) you can PM me if you want.
