True. In general, I think swiss men care about their "appearance" much more than women.

Yes, my Gaydar is way out of whack because of all those metrosexuals running around.

yak spravi Alessia

I don't smoke and can't stand a smoker.... the smell and the taste... ugh

I know, I should be more tolerant with the smokers... but honestly in this subject, my health comes first.

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

I'm tolerant with people who don't infringe on my health or well-being. Cigarette smoke infringes on both and I can't wait for the smoking ban to reach Switzerland, I'm sick of smelling like an ashtray after popping into a pub for half an hour. But, yeah, that is definitely ot.

The metrosexuals are receeding again, clearly the men have realised that it's just too much hard work. But I'd really like the beard trend to stop. Right now. And although men in and from Zurich tend to be very well groomed, they tend to be quite short as well.

Of course, you are right. My husband doesn't smoke so I have no idea about that "taste" But on the other hand I don't think smoking is the worst of all bad habits

What I find really unattractive - the way swiss women dress. Colors, style. IMHO...

No no no, there is no negativity there!! I actually like metrosexual men: they smell better than your typical bloke.

I am all for sampling the swiss cuisine, and at some point I would like to try the food also

Not from me... I may be old, fat, ugly, hairy, balding, fashion-challenged and otherwise offensive to the senses, but I'm not insecure about it.

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

I agree the Swiss are quite good at looking neat. The young ones do take good care of themselves, and seem to wear new clothes.... if that is what you find attractive.

They all seem to wear the same kind of clothes.... I suppose because they all shop at the same shops.

My biggest gripe is why they are so damn boring? Most of the ones I've met are typically unopinionated, aloof, cold and passionless. The only things they seem to care about are themselves. Oh, and of course cats.

Sometimes I just wish they were endowed with the fire of Spanish, Italian or even Korean women, or the wit of English or American women. Or something other than just what they have or how they looked.

Yaaaawn!


Okay, I'm purposefully trying to stoke something here.

True about german-speaking part of CH. I am pretty sure in french- or italian-speaking part of the country they are totally different.

Sorry Phos, but that Titanic has sailed. You might manage to re-board on the "Whats up with Swiss Women"? thread. Knock yourself out.

I can fawn over a woman who can beautifully speak French or Italian, but when Swiss German is uttered, I start to exhibit symptoms of narcolepsy.

Re: Why are ladies in Switzerland so attractive?

Tja, dänn häsch dich mit de falsche Frauä unterhaltä, Schnügi.

I really wonder why I have Swiss female friends, this stereotypical creature you describe sounds like a boring pain in the you-know-where. Yes, they do exist, but the "unopinionatedness" is often out of pure politeness, I get told that my notion of saying what I think tends to make the more conservative Swiss rather uncomfortable.

There is this idea of being a quiet, private person, that's just what it's like, if you find this boring, just move to Schwamendingen, you'll be fine.

There is the root of the problem right there.

Maybe someday I will come across a beautiful, intelligent, daring and courageous woman who can live to the fullest. There's gotta be a diamond in the rough somewhere.
