Time to change the title, perhaps? I keep checking it to see if anyone has anything interesting to say about attractive Swiss women, but you just keep talking about cars and Canadian dudes and old British actresses and whatnot.

I hope this is not supposed to be a picture of an attractive swiss woman ? The only feeling this picture gives me is the shivers

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

Hmm, yes, but if you told me the car was bright yellow and named after a bull or a bat, saliva production would go right down. There is a certain embarrassment factor about Lamborghinis and Ferraris - they are just so...OBVIOUS. The Maserati is a more discreet choice, unless they make that in eye-cancer green too...

Well, being from Sweden, I do have pretty high standards , but I'd say they're doing pretty well. I've seen some stunningly beautiful women during my short stay here. It's not like my first trip to france many years ago when the first really good-looking girl we found turned out to be an american.

Not sure how well they age, though - the older ladies I see around here (60+) scare me quite a bit. They tend to look brutal, like they would beat me up if I didn't get out of the way fast enough.

At times like these, I like to use the quote that is usually reserved for people complaining about the locals in any way. "There is a high percentage of foreigners in Switzerland so how do you know that the pretty ones are Swiss?"

I'd be afraid of a "Crying Game" surprise with her.

Just a tip - next time you take a shot like this, try and not have the car dealership in the background and maybe aim for a more "I'm just getting out of my car, oh, what's this, a happy snapper, how fun" approach. Makes it look more believable...

I never said it was my car (Lambo is too Miami, I am a Maserati man myself) and it is in Zurich at garage Schmol AG. It's just one of the few pics where I am alone and with a beard.

True, the prettiest women I have seen in Switzerland have been Italian, Croatian or French "secondas".

There are sure many very beautiful swiss women, but I find a harsher component on them, probably the swiss german dialect and/or the strong accent on the french side or probably this calvinist/reformed belief in Geneva for example that enjoy life is wrong so life have to be austere etc etc.

And about the cars, I do have a beautiful BMW Cabrio, not for the girls, but for me, because I love the open air and so I allways had cabrios.

It is a run-of-the-mill car, that 1 in every 10 over here have. But it is very noticiable how the girls like it, that's for sure.

I don't like them, they are okay when you are zipping along country roads without bumps (I got paranoid about bumps not good for low cars). They are very dangerous when you get stuck behind an open truck or on the autobahn with debris.
Then, stuck in traffic you are sucking in fumes and pollution, when you wash your long hair at night watch the water run black on rinsing, then think about your lungs. You will notice it on the inside of the car. Then the hot sun, it wrecks the interior finish and although you get tanned you also get wrinkly. I don't want them anymore.
On the other hand being on a bike in leather on a hot day is fine until you get into a jam and you start cooking. I used to ride without protection but that was so dangerous. And the gortex stuff just looks ugly. My idea was that if I come off I'm probably dead anyway.

Hardly. One can be dependent on someone in more than just the financial sense.

You know that people either studying or working on their PhD in this country don't earn a great deal of money? If you want bright, they would be your obvious target audience, no?
Having suffered many impecunious years as a student myself, I do know.

But I stand by what I originally implied: a partnership is between equals.

Those brought up on the 'Queens English' rarely suffer rarely suffer real impecunity. They have a predilection for the finer things in life and a often a notable disdain for, or fear of those who might prove to be a financial burden. Their's is very much a world of breeding with equals; having invested so much in credentials, one merely seeks to guarantee a modicum of intelligence in one's offspring. It doesn't take a PhD to drive a fast car, it does take a certain innate intelligence and b****.

Watch out that your big PhD head doesn't hit the tarmac too hard when the Suzuki takes a sharp bend, otherwise all that impecunity will have been for nought.
