How to find someone in Switzerland?

Hello all,

I met someone from Switzerland a couple of years ago when we both were in England. I know he lives in the french part and works for Swatch, but I lost his number and now that I'm living here I would love to get in touch with him. Does anyone know if there is a place where I can look (like a phonebook) and get his number or email?

Thanks!!

PD: Where are the Swatch's offices?

Harruumphh, erhm I am taking offence

And when you do, newMarie, why don't you also ask for your friend by name? You'll quickly find out if he's still there or not.

Re: How to find someone in Switzerland?

Try firstname.lastname@swatch.com

He is probably shagging someone else by now, or may not want to be found.

Please don't tell me that the link does not work.

And this is what happens when men start responding to a woman's question You are just too matter-of-factly. You offer solutions, which can be overwhelming.

What I think Newmarie wants is to share her fear of potential embarassment caused by calling out of the blue a man she met some years ago. She needs someone to tell her it's ok, you can look him up and call him and he will probably remember you and perhaps will even want to meet to catch up and no, he is not going to think you are desperate.

Which is of course what she can find out only if she does call, and even if it turns out to be the most embarassing moment of her life, it does not matter in the grand scheme of things, in a few year's time even she will forget who she called and why.

Live on the edge. Just do it. We await the swatch Irony.
Anyone who has had a holiday romance has been in this position. It's a risk.

Marie who ? I'm sorry, I was very drunk that night, but it's nice to hear from you anyway. Errrr.....Ok...Ciao.
