Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

I think attractiveness is a highly personal thing. Beautiful to someone isn't necessarily to everyone.

Well, I should hope that healthy, happy people are the most attractive. However, some of my male friend's penchant for obviously eating-disordered girls is messing with this notion of mine. Maybe someone who is emotionally unstable is easier to control? Or there's the aspect of wanting to look after someone and feeling needed?
I realise that today's typical woman can make a guy feel pretty obsolete sometimes, what with her well-paid job, ability to wield power tools, driving skills and electrical, umm, "friends". But trust me, if there is any way I can make it seem like a guy can do something better than I can without actually putting myself down, I'll do it. Who wants to put together the electrical train-set ANYWAY, right?

Yes, they are beautiful but often so similar looking, which takes the interest away, IMHO.
Yeah, but you're a girl, which slightly weakens your argument. 'Hot' as it applies to women is necessarily male defined.

Actually, being a scientist, you should know that there are objective physiological parameters that enter into our evaluation of physical beauty. The rest is psychological noise.

I disagree. And so would a few of my female friends who are into women.

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

I am afraid to say I do not agree the best looking asian girls are in KL. I think they are in Shanghai.

But why cant a guy just think ladies are generally good looking in Switzerland? Why does everything have to be analysed in depth?

OK, maybe I am shallow and have an IQ 1 standard deviation away from the mean, but hey...... I'll enjoy the scenery while I am here.

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

I think that a lot of ladies over here look good from smoking to keep thin (as previously mentioned) wearing insane amounts of makeup and wearing trendy clothes. Not necessarily all turn ons, especially when smoking makes the skin old and wrinkled before it's time. Each to their own.

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

What is it with the thin equals attractive? I mean, apart from the media and society as a whole, is thinness really so important you'd risk your life for it? I feel sorry for people who feel that way... Of course obesity is not a option either (and I get especially miffed when I see fat people smoking on top of their other issues) but whatever happened to "normal"?

I find the Swiss ladies attractive.

However not in the proportion as you can find in other places. Helsinki has been cited, but also we can mention Bratislava where the hot girl proportion is near 8/10.

How do you evaluate the proportions here ?

I'd say Lausanne and Zurich are maybe 5/10... someone agree/disagree ?
Aah Bratislava! Stay away from hostels though.

It's probably the newness or difference to what you are familiar with.
No different to many other things.

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

Luzern,(and the surrounding areas),women are the most attractive women ever for sure.Specially around Kreins,Zug,Weggis,Küssnacht,Vitznau;and Greppen.I also love Thun girls.(All not stuck up at all,and dear warm hearts.)

They're way more healthy,active,real fun;and more seriously creative I've found through time being the only Californian-American musician/guitarist in a Swiss progressive rock band.

Just listen and look at beautiful Luzernerin happening singer,guitarist,songwriter Heidi Happy aka Priska Zemp http://www.heidihappy.ch



WoW !!



Tschüß everyone!

Finns seem to have the right attitude. Die while you're still attractive.

Out of curiosity, I am really new here, but are there pubs with live bands of up and coming musicians in and around the zurich area?

Quite right, super thin women (in my eyes) frequently don't look healthy. I much prefer a woman "au naturel", which from a physical perspective means that she has some nice natural curves, rather than a straight line. Though I must agree that there is a lot of social pressure (magazines, advertisements) on young women to strive for the "ideal" look which is more or less determined by the fashion moguls and beauty industry... it's big business, and lots of women are manipulated into forking over lots of money to strive for a look determined by the industry.

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

I agree with you and was in no way trying to say that thin automatically equals attractive. Thin can also be very unattractive.

Personally, I think that a well toned body from exercise is the most attractive. Does not have to be thin, merely healthy.

Judging a book by the cover is the wrong way.

"Beauty" is only skin deep and fleeting...

I have only been here 3 weeks, but I make it a point to explore the country from Lausanne to Zurich( Lugano next week) nearly every moment I am not working or at work.

I seem to notice that the ladies here are generally really nice looking. Especially in Lausanne. I mentioned it to my German colleague and he thinks so too. There is this study that in cities with good looking ladies, the general population is usually happier.

lg, S.

Yup. Agree. They love to practice their English as well. I'd tap most of the chicks here in Zurich. Haven't visited the French part yet, but Zurich has decent chicks.

Aah Bratislava! Stay away from hostels though.

I did the whole Eastern Euro trip last year, and I would have to rank 1) Bratislava, 2)Budapest, 3) Prague with the best women in the world. ON average, Bratislava beats out both, but in Prague you can find more bombshells/supermodel like women then in Bratislava. Average girl in Bratislava looks better though.

Another thing I really like over there is that the ladies are quite liberal when they go out. No problem taking it all off, right in the club after a few drinks

Guess where I am going on my next vacation?
