in need of a social life in Geneva!

Hello All. its a while ago since I posted something on the forum, but I (we) are getting a bit d-socialized after our move to Geneva. We are two guys and are looking for some social connection within the Geneva area. We found that there isn't really a "gay life" here and we would just like to meet some people to have dinner with, go out for a drink etc.. I know; It sounds sad.... very sad! BUT: we are NOT sad just looking for some new friends.

Any suggestions would be more than welcome.

MaXxX

Re: in need of a social life in Geneva!

Hello MaXxX from another mAx,

Geneva can be rather daunting when it comes to meeting new people who don't necessarily want to attend meat market commercialised social events. How about putting up an event on the calendar for coffee / drinks / whatever you fancy? Leading from the front and starting it yourself often attracts others with a similar interest.

Keep your eye on the social and commercial calendar if this option doesn't appeal.

Ehm, ok, this will sounds very strange, but do you knit?
We have a few gay men in our Geneva Stitch&Bitch, and even if you aren't interested in needle work, you could get some valuable info in terms of socializing..Plus, it really is fun.

Your comment made me laugh... Nothing strange about knitting. Used to in the 80's when everybody was wearing knitted jumpers ( remember last Christmas video??) also a very good idea. How do I find you?

Re: in need of a social life in Geneva!

Hiya, i love to go out once and awhile with different friends, not looking for a date, have a husband and kids, but love to just chat and meet new friends. Been here in Geneva a year, and yes it is easy to fall into work, home, work home chores...etc. Used to have many gay friends in Barcelona when free and single, just love your company, so if you are willing to accept a "girl" friend let me know of your next get together, or just a chat for coffee.

Re: in need of a social life in Geneva!

MaXxX and oppoppy, Mr Fluff (hubby) and I are going to be in Geneva this weekend to get a feel for the place. If Mr Fluff accepts his job offer, we'll be there in March!! We'd be very keen to hook up and chat about life there, and obviously to meet new friends
If you are keen, let me know so that we can arrange something. We arrive on Sat morning and fly back to London on Tue.
