So 'unattractive' people from western European countries who apparently judge people on all sorts of shallow things like their watches, shoes, etc as indicators of 'status' and 'attractiveness' should do...what....exactly? Live a lonely celibate life?
They should just get on with it and do like the rest of us...

Bonk anything that moves but doesn't run away.

OK, it has been a long time as I have been monogamous for 25 years, but you get the picture. Just stop being so desperate and controlling that the only solution is to buy someone and bring them back.

OTOH, maybe that is the best solution. After all, if these guys are so shallow and self absorbed, then maybe the best thing is to get someone that will appreciate what they are being offered as it is a step up and leave the rest of society out of it.

I just wonder if whoever coined the phrase, "marriage is a contract," meant it in quite this manner.

I dont want to be mean to Swiss people, they have some qualities and they are not all like that, but from what Ive seen in 4 years in Switzerland, I find the Swiss folk mostly cold and unspontaneous. So i can understand they find a partner from another country more interesting! If one can choose between a cold and a warm-hearted person, I think they will most likely choose the latter. I think another reason could be that the Swiss travel a lot, also during their studies. So they probably fall in love abroad!
I loved what you wrote

Yeah, they seem to want that AND for the GF to be fantastically attractive, eternally young sex maniac. If she isn't, this will be outsourced...

All men want this regardless of nationality, not just Swiss men.
At the end of the day.... they want the security of a home and loving support from their wives and kids.
I sooooooo hope that it's true in case of Swiss men........the Swiss man

You don't have to look. As it is with any man, regardless of their nationality, they will find you...

Re: Swiss men

Also it's almost impossible for foreigners to stay here without a ring on their finger. The laws may say one thing but the Swiss officials will straight up tell you just to get married.

Unless you are from the EU and/or have a work contract, for starters.

Damn. I hate when girls say this, I mean, you could wait and see, but that wouldn't put you forward to any man you like.
A little psychology helps. Yep, it's hard to read "cold"-ish people, but you still have got a few pointers to make sure he's the type you'd like.

Won't be hard to find, there are people all over the place, right?

Re: Swiss men

It's an odd one.

Swiss men and women do seem to avoid each other.

The women are very snooty, the men very dry and humourless. Maybe both a product of each other. Perhaps the women have become very stuck up because a lot the Swiss men they meet are about as interesting as a door nail and with that, the Swiss men are seeking women who can open them up to a different side to life and are a lot less up themselves.

Re: Swiss men

Don't you ever get a sentiment of dejà-vu when somebody revives one of these old threads ?
Do you tend to reread your own participation and measure the distance you travelled since your ideas of the time ?

Feels strange, sometimes comforting and sometimes disconcerting.

True,

I often feel that I've moved on so much over the years but the EF has stayed just the same. It's like stepping into a not too distant past through a wierd time warp.

Re: Swiss men

The lack of humour in taxing other people as humourless is showing that tax advisors in general don't really know anything about humour at all.

Your comment about "women who can open them up to a different side to life and are a lot less up themselves" is just great as there are many of these women on the forum either engaged or married to swiss men who maybe are not "d'accord" with you.

Thinking before posting seems to be a lottery for some posters on here.

Re: Swiss men

My girl friend's Swiss ex-husband has been going abroad on holiday, picking up girl friends and keeping them as housekeepers until their visas expire. The Russian girl ordered two mink fur coats and then left early, ha ha!

Just reciting the experience of friends and feedback from Swiss women I've dated, sorry I hit a nerve Mr Bore.
