Re: dating/relationship consultant ?

What you need is a wingman... someone to scope out the area and let you know his thoughts and why he thinks what he's thinking.

What I did was get over the fear of being embarrassed or basically, shrug your shoulders if it doesn't go your way. In 100 years, it won't matter. Why should it matter now. There's 6 billion people on the planet. Someone's bound to say yes if you keep trying. Take this for instance:

You (politely and hopefully sober): "Hi, would you like to join me for dinner"

Her responses:

"No thanks" (pleasant response, shrug and walk away)
"No way, take off" (thank goodness, don't want to go out with her anyways)
Gives you the cold shoulder, walks away (hahaha, you have to laugh and just tell a friend, this reaction is funny not embarrassing)

So the responses go from pleasant to the worst case scenario and you walk away without issues.

I've talked to other people who live in the big city (in different countries too) and there is a stereotype that goes along with girls and the big city. Someone else can let me know if this is true. In Toronto, my friend said they looked for the *bling*. In Lausanne, my friend mentioned the same thing with a lot of girls.

Maybe best to rent a Beamer for a night and trick the gold digger ;-) My friend and I would joke about this.

Last tip, get involved in activities where you can go alone and have fun and where others do the same. I think I meet one or two people per week climbing. You're staring at the same wall and you say 'so, how about that route'. Done. You've opened the door.

Here are a few tips:

1) Don't talk about previous relationships on the first date.
2) Listen rather than talk about yourself.
3) Don't ask if she likes anal before the main course is finished ...
#3 has to be ask just befor 'Will this be with french fry or baked patatos "

Re: dating/relationship consultant ?

I think the problem is that he lives in Zurich.

I do think that a lot of the women there seem unapproachable. (That is, unless you're flashing a 20,000 CHF Rolex.)

To the OP -- maybe it would help if you stop thinking of women as "the other sex." Just think of them as normal people. Because that's what we are. We just have more complex genitalia.

Re: dating/relationship consultant ?

Let's be honest - most people meet their partners through common interests or at the office - these are places where you can strike up an informal conversation without having to create some pretext.

Want to meet women? Figure out what YOU enjoy doing, then join a club or something like that.

My wife and I had a common interest - we were both riders and horse owners. Through this common interest, we had something to talk about. We've been together for 10 years and married for 4.

Not into horses? Fine - join a fitness club, become a volunteer for Greenpeace, participate in church events (if you are religious), join the volunteer fire brigade, tennis club, whatever. This will give you an opportunity to get to know lots of people and find someone who may be interested in you, too.
