i must say, i often feel ugly here mostly due to the fact that i am certainly not as thin or as tall as a lot of the women here in zurich and to have it pointed out that as a foreigner i am most likely right about myself makes me a bit sad, haha.
the weird thing is i have never felt ugly anywhere before... its definitely a new, not so nice feeling!

I don't think men usually look for tall women.
Except short men...of course

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

haha! that article is funny! and thanks for all the niceness! And I, of course, think that everyone has their own types and such, but as a girl in zurich, it is much more difficult to meet a guy when you are not tall and thin. I mean, I dont think all the guys here arent as cool because of their types, but reading this thread definitely re-iterated my initial view.

oh, and referring to that prom queen statement- my high school prom queen was one of the biggest girls in our class, but she had a big heart. So maybeee you should think about that a bit more.

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

We are who we are in life. Ugly/beautiful are just silly meaningless labels. We will all shrivel and become old so why beat each other with meaningless labels? Sometimes when I am working out at gym I wonder if I "live to exercise" or "exercise to live". I think I am high on caffeine so don't really know what I am saying

Heh... reminds me of something I saw a while back, still not sure if it was serious or a joke... will paraphrase, but was presented in the form of a personals ad and a written response...

"Beautiful young woman seeking rich older man for marriage. An equal partnership - I'll bring the looks, you bring the money! (photo included, very attractive)"

"Let us consider your offer in an objective manner. Your looks will fade so they are, in fact, a depreciating asset. In contrast with continued careful management my wealth will continue to grow, being therefore an earning asset. This means that your proposed 'partnership' is far from equal, and so with regret I must decline."

While I'm a firm believer that you should marry somebody with a great personality that you can relate to, having at least a few things in common and the ability to enjoy things together... it is very pleasant to wake up next to somebody like that who is also physically attractive.

btw, speaking of looks, can we shift to a question of 'fashion': why do so many people wear those bizarre 'gloves' (sections of sleeves with thumb-holes, so the palms and backs of the hands are covered, but not the fingers or thumbs)?? To me, they look like that white thing Michael Jackson wore in at least one of his video clips... Oh, and I'm still not used to seeing tights being worn as exterior clothing, instead of under skirts or something similar...

If I were to choose a woman from a lineup, any 'glamour model' type would probably be my last choice. Personality, and natural looks are far more important. I think that it is a great shame for the women who feel it necessary to conform to media stereotypes.

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

Swiss-German women are frumps.

Hairy armpits, huge bush somewhere else, weird glasses, smoke, tattoos, studs in their noses, sandals with socks...

When they get older, they put a streak of green (or similar odd colour) in their hair. Strange.

French and french-swiss women seem to have the knack of elegance. Even those that aren't conventionally pretty, they have that something special.

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

Maybe Resident thinks the Swiss Women are frumps because he/she is one and just looked in the mirror? (evil joke don't get mad)

Seriously though, how do you know if its a swiss, french, italien, english of spanish woman walking down the street??

I know that it is very easy to become consumed with the physical atraction and therefore to compare yourself with others based upon outward appearances, but really it makes very little difference. If you don't get along with someone then good looks are only going to get you so far. Unless of course you are only interested in shallow relationships (His Canadian Dudeship knows what I mean).

Besides, all those tall women are going to have a tough time finding a bloke the same size as them in this town full of short arse's

You can't tell the nationality, but if she's smiling it's likely that she's not a local

@ jordanelizabeth - just think how jelous all these women who are more or less clones of each other must be when someone like you so unique and hence beautiful appears

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

Why is this forum so focused on women's attractiveness? We have the hottie calendar the pin-up girl on the gambling thread, this and falling in love on a swiss affiliated flight. So, just for the girl's here's my story about yesterday.
I got up a 5 a.m. to get shots at the hospital, I hadn't showered for two days- yes yuck, but I was way too busy, in all ways possible. I crashed out then woke up late for my hip-Xray.( groin strain) Couldn't be bothered to wash, hadn't brushed my hair for a day, no make-up. Still with my 5am sweats on got to the Xray place, hoping not to bump into anyone I knew, I sat and waited for the nice lady to ray me. Suddenly a guy calls out my name I look up and it is the best looking guy I have seen in years.I think " No way" I am going home. I stare- he stares.I start panicking, then think it's Okay it will be over with quickly, he will hand me off to someone else.
I go through and he opints to the cabinet, he asks any metal fastenings on those pants - I say No he says well you still have to strip off from the waist down. I say "no, please" he answers Nods and smiles. I groan, he says better take your bra off too. I think about slipping away, but just think 5 minuted it will all be over. But no once in there he has to manipulate me into all kinds of positions to get the angle right. I tried to keep focused.

I will never skip showers again.

So ladies, what are your tastes in men?
How do you rate Swiss guys?

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

Most beautiful men in Switzerland !

There is a thread like that, but we haven't gotten very far yet !!! Maybe ladies are more shy to express their opinions ? Don't know

Hoppy, what a great story! Isn't that always the way? Did he end up asking for your phone number? I remember way back in my single days, I'd always get picked up on days when I looked my absolute worst. Men are strange creatures!

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

Well, I don't have user privileges for that page. I guess, looks aren't everything. I don't generally like Swiss guys- they are such posers, they often claim to be experts in something, (usually inane) and get caught up in the weirdest fashions, like olive and pink shirts. Some even shave their chests or wear various 'sports' restraints. There is even a bra for men now- I think it's called a moob?

Hoppy a moob is actually a man boob. Men with moobs do need bras but I'm not sure what those are called.

I'm pretty sure that thread is open to everyone.
