Okay I have to disagree, I don't find swiss women very beautiful at all. But perhaps I'm just hanging around ^the wrong spots.
How do you know you aren't hanging around an area with not many Swiss women? You could be stood next to me - I've got a face like a slapped ar$e but I'm not Swiss.

We only have your word for that spanky.

On another note, I find the Swiss German accent to be the best contraceptive known to man.

They aren't particularly - Ticinese are a cut above the rest though.
They are also cuckoo like the clocks - best avoided.
Examples of better looking countries (in no particular order):
1. Sweden
2. Netherlands
3. Thailand
4. Portugal
5. Spain
I don't see it that way. There are great looking women everywhere, but it's the whole package that makes a woman attractive. If you are only interested in looks then you will never be fully satisfied.

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

...perhaps something to do with a healthy diet and homely outlook on life, none of the pumped up dictatorial pervasion of the media and society on how to live... just wondering.

It would take more than a pint of the black stuff, however, so Mikey is way ahead of me...

A work colleague of mine, every once in awhile, plays her little wicked games with the men in the company we both work for.
She dresses up, skirt, high heels etc., then walks from one floor to the next, and ends up at the reception with an enormous grin on her face. It worked, she would say ...

Absolutely agree. Most local ladies do not know how to be feminine.
If feminine is also down to dressing, it's just hard to get the gear here. And with feminine I don't mean the in your face short skirt high heels approach. Also, there is a term of abuse in Swiss German known as "Tussi" - nobody wants to be one, it means that you are a slightly ditzy, girly girl.

Finally, we are raised with the knowledge that you have to do everything better than the boys to get ANY form of respect and still only 75% of their salary for the same job. So maybe the coldness is purely out of a sense of competitiveness...

you can extrapolate two possibilites ( many others in the middle could be possible )

a. Men don't take her seriously as she is presenting herself as an object, easy, slutty woman.
b. She is not taking one of the men she attracts because she expects more ( and maybe complains there are no good man around her )
c. Pain in the ass
d. Voice like a jackhammer
e. Rubbish in the sack

EDIT: Czech women rule , cept for Mammy... Mammy >>>>>>>>> everyone else

Interesting point; however, I don't think there is any competitiveness here as women just don't get that far and maybe that's the problem. Just look at how they are treated in education, family, kids school: they are tied to the home without any let-up unless they earn enough to pay for child-care which brings them back to square one(and your point). Maybe the lack of choice and freedom affects them more than we realise.. and with the swiss system stacked against them and many swiss males lacking tenderness and understanding, I guess change isn't coming fast enough for many women here.

Being feminine has very little to do with the way that you dress. A woman can be sexy and feminine wearing anything, but especially one of my work shirts and a pair of my undies

This part I don't understand. Is it not possible to separate your business from your private life? Is that why everyone is so up tight? Do they think that if they kick back and have a good time then it may reflect badly upon them in the office? If so then how sad.

Sure you ladies get a tough deal in the work place, there is a separate thread that has discussed this, but in your private life you are the Queen of your domain.
