how about just throw away all these rationalites and go with the one who makes your <3 go nuts!

same is boring...

when I met my wife, we didn't ANYTHING in common, no common language, no common hobbies/sport/interests etc, but the way we complete each other after all these years is incredible...it's never boring...
no common language a definite plus IMO!

Indeed.

Six years on, my Italian is great, but my wife's English is nil.

Have you actually ever talked to each other yet? If not, that's maybe why it's working out for you ....

Re: Are Swiss girls materialistic?

If it's about money: To be honest, a lot of girls are materialistic regardless of what country they are from. And it's all relative I think. E.g. because the standard is high in some areas like Zurich, a girl's expectations might not appear materialistic, but if another girl from another city had the same expectations, she might appear really materialistic. So I think you'd probably find a range 'materialistic' or girls that still highly value material things, but would settle for less in the light of intelligence, personality etc.

If it's about race: There will probably be a norm where most girls will date a person from a particular race/same race, but all girls are different and have their own preference. If the city is quite multicultural, it would be more likely that you'd see a multiracial couples

A huge difference in saying that you are, in general, not attracted by people who seem very different from you (which is fine by me)- and saying that you would automatically and systematically not befriend or date anybody who is black - as a 'principle' (which to me does smack of racism).
Thanks Oliver for the red blobbies which arrived a week later Apparently my 'basic English comprehension is poor' lol. Oliver when your French or German comprehension matches my 'basic English comprehension', come back again

Re: Are Swiss girls materialistic?

OP, i will not lie..
I'm black and with girls, it's actually an advantage here(like being white in Africa).You will get noticed first, then it will be up to you to close the deal.

Listen, ignore the girls with the obsession of black guys. Try to find a cute normal girl(plenty of them there). but to do so you will have to dress like "normal" guys here do.

If you want to try clubs, avoid Hip Hop clubs(people go there to dance and they barely date compared to Salsa/house/commercial clubs). Since you were talking about "material",hip hop clubbers are poorer than house/commercial/revival clubbers.

If you are smart you will figure out where to go and how to dress..

Re: Are Swiss girls materialistic?

I wouldnt call myself racist, but I too am not attracted to black women, as in carribean / african, I have nothing at all against them and could quite happily have them as friends, but am just not attracted sexually, the same can be said of a lady with a skinhead, i dont find it atractive therefore I am not attracted, no matter what colour, on the other hand, I have seen many arabic & indian ladies that I find extremley attractive.
Its really isnt a racist thing!

Re: Are Swiss girls materialistic?

It's not at all racist if this is just what naturally happens. If it becomes a 'rule or principle' then it is. My South African mil told both by girl that they should never ever date a black man, as they are just 'different' (the word she used started with a 'k' but I just couldn't bring myself to type it) - and that was definitely racist!
