What kind of...materials? You mean..like this?

Chocolate bars and coins. Swiss girls are definitely exposed to more of that!

Of course, that survey about Swiss girls' preferences was limited to European men. Once you open it up to Aussies, well, obviously everything changes ...

"Straight gay" ...

Anyway, back on topic, that guy (Darryn Lyons) is a multi-millionaire, so if Swiss girls are materialistic then he'd be very attractive ... even without those washboard abs ...

Re: Are Swiss girls materialistic?

I think the level of "materialism" of the Swiss girls depends on where they live and/or where they come from.. i.e. Geneva, Bern, Zurich etc.

I know a few South-American girls who have been living in Geneva for quite a while, they seem to be very materialistic, also in terms of guys they date.

The topic under discussion was Are Swiss girls materialistic?

Are Swiss girls materialistic? After reflection, I don't think they are more materialistic than any other European nationality. The young Swiss have simply more spending power, better wages and lower taxes. If you visit other cities there are exactly the same shops selling exactly the same stuff, but here many seem to choose more expensive boring clothes.

and choose to dress more or less slutty than in other countries too.

Well shhittt man, you only have to be yourself and not pretend you are somebody else!

By that i mean, do they make judgement based on race? Does it matter if you are black/white? Is dressing like 50 Cent a big turn-off? Should one act like a hommie, geek or pleya to get lucky with the ladies? I don't mean this in a sexual way, but merely for establishing a friendship with the Swiss faster and smoothly.
But i keep on getting this vibe, that most girls arent looking to date/befriend with foreign guys specially with Arabs and Blacks.

So, what do you do to get liked around here, are the girls really materialistic?

My personal view is that most Swiss girls prefer Swiss men. Even German men have problems picking up Swiss girls. Their second choice is Italian men.

Haha I used to date mainly foreign guys (American, English, Finnish, German) so I suppose I am the exception.

You definitely won't have any success trying to meet women on the street, that approach makes them feel cheap, like a call-girl. You need to join a club, to show them you are a nice guy. Then maybe they will show interest.

Materialistic? Yes I think they are, most modern girls are. If you don't have a car, and a good job your chances are small.

Totally depends on "social layer", some will feel cheap, some will be very happy, I bet

This might offend some, but Lausanne is special for Blacks and Arabs. Most of the cocaine dealing is done by Blacks, more specifically West Africans. You see them every evening in the Chauderon - Riponne - St François triangle doing nothing but that. The Arabs you see are usually from the Maghreb (that's Morocco-Algeria-Tunisia) or from France and those that aren't dealing marijuana are likely to be on a stealing spree. They also like to harass girls in nightclubs around the Flon area. French Arabs in particular have a really bad reputation for treating women badly and looking for fights on the slightest pretext.

So if you're of one of those ethnic flavour, expect a lot of (often wrong) prejudice to be aimed at you when going out in the evening. Dressing hiphop in particular will attract attention from the police and unless the girls are into rnb/hiphop they'll avoid you... or ask you for drugs. It's really tough being a young professional guy from Africa or North America (if dark skinned, the others get the "america is evil" story instead) in this town if you want to meet girls, but if you have the moves, smile a lot and don't over do it you'll be ok.


P.S. Groan at me if you must but I will *not* debate what I've posted. I've been living downtown for 13 years here and that's the reality of what people think is happening.
Probably one of the most worst and irrelevant post on EF...ever

...lived 13 years in the big city of Lausanne? must be true then...

After 12 years in Switzerland I do believe that Swiss women has quite good judge of character...and I do see more mixed couples here than in many other european countries...

Re: Are Swiss girls materialistic?

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...
