Re: 9 months in Switzerland - a honest report.

Hi JohltaVontra


As a 100% Swiss I have to say that your honest report is just great! It shows that you have a good sense of humor and obviousely are able to spark a discussion. Of course one could argue that your report is a bit superficial too, but definitely not boring;-)

But it is also true, that I feel sorry for you that you feel not welcomed. But I am sure with so much to tell about Swiss people I could talk to you certainly longer than 1-2 minutes;-) Basically we Swiss are very happy to use our English which is sometimes a bit stiff but we are always willing to show off a bit what we have learnt in school. In this regard, I vively could imagine that even our as you call it 'arrogant' women would give you a chance to enchant them with your near flawless English.

Give us another chance, please, please to prove that we can party too. Honestly we are not boring nor superficial. I strongly suspect that you just visited the wrong places or spoke to people (mayb not even Swiss) who were a bit overwhelmed of your approaching.

Maybe we don't meet such interesting poeple like you everyday so it might need a bit more time to break the ice. But I am sure with your positive attidude you will find somebody you can talk to. Good luck.

Best,
Welcome

Re: 9 months in Switzerland - a honest report.

Everyone got the rights to their own opinion, nevertheless, I personally disagree with most of those points.

For sure someone lifestyle doesn't necessarily need to affect me. if you complain about the slow pace of their life, yes maybe its a bit slower than in eastern European countries but its takes them many years to reach that level, so I actually appreciate it.

Re: 9 months in Switzerland - a honest report.

I was born in Switzerland and grew up there. I can only agree with what is written above.

Swiss woman are EXTREMELY and I emphasize that clearly EXTREMELY arrogant. They not only look arrogant, they also behave like that in real life and on dating apps (Tinder, Bumble,etc). People in Switzerland arenít friendly, but helpful when you get lost.



It becomes evident when one lives in Zurich, how lonely life becomes due to that issue.

In some cities the sky is always gray, in some it is hard to make a living and in some the woman suck. You get my point. Every place has its issues, including Switzerland.

If you sre single, just donít live in Switzerland, move to a normal city with friedly woman and live your life man.

What an odd post. I'm afraid with your attitude, I wouldn't want to be your friend either.

I think I pretty much only agree with "hard to make a living". It can be hard, rather.

Update your location, too - will be easier for people to communicate with you, if that's the reason you are here for.

Holy moly someone is bitter.

I mean sure, it's not the easiest place in the world to meet women (it's not the hardest either) but to label all women here as arrogant and superficial is just wrong on so many levels.

Why should he? He has obviously escaped to New York where woman - and people in general - are well known for their sincere friendliness towards strangers.
He possibly escaped before sexual maturity? That makes him a real pro on the subject.

That comment about Russian whores is rude and derogatory. It was not meant as a joke and most people on this forum seem to think itís ok to trash someoneís nationality and ethnicity.

The guy is lonely and wants to be accepted so he is probably a bit angry, however some things he wrote are actually true. So look in the mirror and accept that you are (if you are Swiss) how he described. No need to get defensive. If you dish it out, then take some criticism too.

Imagine if all of you were trashing someone whoíd said he was from Africa or of other ďnon whiteĒ origin? This entire forum would be reported. But Russians are a free for all because itís currently popular to hate them and call them ugly whores and alcoholics. Shame on all those commenters.

Back in the day Russians were in demand in Zurich, but they don't even make the best whores anymore - the premium they demand for specialisms is just silly.

Far better to get the newer arrivals who will happily do whatever you want for just a few extra chfs.

You Sir, are one ugly human being.

They do, but only when it fits them.

Anything new you've been noticing? 'cause I have to tell you - you're not saying anything new here.

We have more interesting threads where you can contribute, don't hold your breath on this theme.

Welcome to the forum btw!

I don't feel like going through 16 pages of thread.

I honestly hope that, in the meantime, OP left this horrible horrible country.
