Re: Dating Swiss Men?

As another poster mentioned, finding a Swiss man who can laugh at himself is a rarity.

Why are there then so many sex shops the size of a supermarket in CH?
These large sex shops are for the foreigners, rejected by Swiss lovers!

Is that right!? haha! I had always heard the Swiss were conservative when it comes to this? But I wouldn't complain
I was kidding, Turtledove. I guess each individual is unique, who knows how people are in their intimacy.
But we could always dream that such men exist...hehe.

However frivolity is usually frowned upon

Frivolity is not the same as German Frivolität. Besides that, sex without Frivolität is not quite unusual.

Re: Dating Swiss Men?

I went to a sex shop once, my god there was some paraphinalia in there that would make your eyes pop out!!! Some gadgets looked downright dangerous!! Those huge dildo things that you supposedly put on a seat, the thing was as big as my head!!

And even make the onlooker forget how to properly write paraphanalia - i give up!!

Back on subject, Swiss men are like most men. Some can be great and others can be boring. The ones that take you to a sex shop, have some potential towards having a good laugh!!!

If it makes your eyes pop out, I suspect you're using it wrong.

Re: Dating Swiss Men?

I tried to read Nebelspalter for a year or so as they had them in my local library - a complete waste of time. The only satire magazine I enjoyed in Swityerland was the Weltwoche...

Turtledove23 has no particular reputation at present
Re: Dating Swiss Men?

Turns out he doesn't like long distance (yeah because I just love it!?) and he more than likely wouldn't do it because he has before and it doesn't work. We agreed to get to know each other before we decide of we're going to do this.. but it's not looking good. What a load of rubbish.......

Re: Dating Swiss Men?

a) if you want him to get a shoeing, you can order it here
b) if you want a bloke who lives in Switzerland as your fella, you've come to the right place
c) if you want a man who is emotionally underdeveloped and a little bit of a keyboard warrior, you're well-in

I don't think it matters any more, sorry OP.

Rose tinted glasses work more efficiently bigger the distance is, anyways, and especially online. (If I can offer a word of solace).

In Innersschwytz probably- I know plenty here with a wicked sense of humour, including towards their own faults and failures

OH is British and I am Swiss. He is a true 'gentleman', the most genuine, intelligent and interesting person I've ever known, but he is quite serious and does not like risk (apart from having married me when we only knew each other for a few months, me just 20 and he 25)- and I am the 'wild' one in the relationship, always trusting to 'fate' and taking chances. He loves the wicked sense of humour so many of our Swiss friends have.
