Any stewardesses here who might be able to check the passenger list?

Namia, would you say he had more of a French or German accent?
I know i'm not much of a help here..the only accent I recalled he had was american, but If I had to pick, I would say french just because of his name. Sounded like; "chuance" or "chuane" (not sure of the spelling) doesn't that name sound more french than german? If not, than i would say german.

Re: Do you know this guy?

maybe you should just let it go. after all, there must have been a reason you didn't give him the number in the first place. now it sounds like you're idealising who he could potentially be. forget it. move on.

Seriously, I am not interested in reading messages such as yours. There's a reason for everything, even my presence in this forum. I have no idea really how I am being perceived here, imaginative, clueless or whatever. However, I am fully aware of how I think he is, even though in reality he might not be so at all. But guess what, i'll be the judge of that, nobody else.

For all of you out there reading this thread, feeling the urge to advice me in the same direction as the message above, please don't bother. I am only interested in people that wants to help me find him and encourage me to do so, not the other way around. Thanks

Re: Do you know this guy?

It's all very well and good having people encourage you, but I think Phil just wanted to give you some realistic advice. Personally, if some bloke I'd met in a club tracked me down the way you're trying to do then I would think he was batshit crazy and run a mile. I hope you do track him down and he's everything you imagine him to be, it would be a nice story. I just don't think it's very likely...

Well, once again, then he wont be what I think he is in reality. And guess what, i'll still love life & everything good in it. Please don't bother me with this "realistic" version of life you guys seem to think i lack.

Personally, I would be flattered if someone did this. People are different. What a boring world this would be otherwise.
Thanks for your thoughts and concerns, but as i said, it's pretty useless since I'm doing this my way and nobody elses. So if your blessings are followed by a "I just don't think it's likely" pls save it.

Re: Do you know this guy?

I have a simple question...where from did you take the picture?

If I meet someone, and the day after I do not remember even his name, how I find a picture of him in internet?

I guess you have been rejected many many times and you still didn't recover...It is time to move on.
Didn't you read the part where I say I am not even a straight guy? No, I haven't been rejected, but I hang out with my friends and constantly see this attitude by girls. Well summarized in here, btw:



I think it's pathetic

Well he shouldn't have been rejected by me. And it wasn't a role i felt i had to play, had you read this from the beginning, you would have known that already. If the purpose of your message was to try and kill my hopes.... mission not accomplished. But thanks for trying, i'm sure you meant well.
Face it darling, you don't have the name, just a blurry picture from a guy you are not sure where does he live, Switzerland has close to 8 million inhabitants you know? You are not even sure he's american or that he is actually in here. There is no way you can find him unless you can get your message on national tv, and even then he might as well prefer not to meet you anymore. Why waste your time on an idealized person?

Well, you did post it on an internet forum, so people are pretty much going to post what they think about it... You post this sort of thing publicly and you open yourself up for a variety of responses. Frankly, I'm surprised you haven't had more like mine and Phil's (and put in a much nastier way)!

Actually I'm even more concerned about this guy. It's clearly a snapshot (he's not even looking into the camera), you have apperantly no idea about his personal background but post his photo here.

I was really surprised that this is allowed when I saw the thread.

Maybe it's more "probable" that you find him this way, but more classy it would have been the other way round. Your photo and "do you remember me?". (with all the disavantages of unwanted pms of course.)

By doing so it would have given him the choice.
