Re: Is dating Swiss man complicated?

I think it's about time to give him an enthusiastic but gentle honk.

Does wonders for a relationship!

Comments? Agreements?

Re: Is dating Swiss man complicated?

Hi, I have been seeing a 25 years old Swiss guy from Zurich for about a month. He showed that he liked me a lot in the beginning but things are a bit vague than before. (My questions are at the very bottom)

I'm an Asian girl who is open and has been exposed to many different cultures (both East and West) since I was a child. Also, I have a lot of friends from Europe and I went to college in the USA.

In the beginning, I was not interested in him at all. I have never dated who is from the Western culture. We knew each other from same group but not so close. One weekend, I was out with my friends in a club and he was there with his friends celebrating his birthday. I said hi first and he gave me a bijoux. After a while, I got quite tipsy and he was tipsy too. I saw him passing by when I was at a table with my friends so said hi again and he pulled me out to dance. He told me it was his birthday so I gave him a light peck on a cheek and he asked if he could kiss me. He did lightly, before I answered. I stayed silent and walked away after he told me he will text me (which he did 5 days later).

We texted quite a long time and in the beginning he was the one who always asked questions and texted very promptly. He planned more for our first two dates and when we did not see each other for two weeks, he said he is sad. Also he praised me more too. I know during courting stage, men can be sweeter than their usual personality.

After the second date, he started to respond slower. He was bit more touchy and passionate that night but didn't suggest anything or stop me when I said I'm going home. He even did not reply to "I miss you" (which was my first time sending it). When I stopped texting, he asked me whether I was mad (maybe little but not really). Now I'm the one that asks question to continue the conversation. Both of us never called each other to talk. When we are together, he doesn't reply to his friends' texts immediately.

We started to talk less so I asked him out for the third date, which went very well that both of us had a fun time. However, on the first and the second date, he kissed me but not on the third date... and we have not gone beyond kiss yet.

My questions are:
Are Swiss men passive and reserved?
Are they not good at showing emotions?
Are girls supposed to make more actions and plans?
How do you know if they are still interested in girls?
How old are you, 16?

Re: Is dating Swiss man complicated?

Threads like this can be entertaining, true. On the other hand, I feel a little sad for the person who goes through the trouble of inventing a whole new persona for the purpose of trolling. There must be something missing in their lives.
Like sex.
Or something.

Re: Dating Swiss Men?

I've merged this with a very similar thread from a few months ago, so I suggest to the OP (and anyone else TBH) that it's worth reading through the rest of it before responding further.

I disagree. Was a complete waste of time and not even funny.

I'm a British girl in her late 20's and I wanted some advice on Swiss Men! I have just started dating a lovely Swiss man but I have never dated someone foreign before.

We obviously live in different country's and have different cultures but I wanted to firstly know.. is there anything I should know about dating a Swiss man and what are your experiences?
I have been with my Swiss boyfriend for over 2 years now. I would say that Swiss men compared to men where im from (US) are a lot more shy, reserved, and not as funny as in not always trying to say or do silly things. Swiss men are more serious and will admit to you and others that you are his girlfriend after the 2nd or 3rd date because even having a 1st date takes a lot of effort. I find them more truthful and loyal. Don't expect passionate, dramatic, heated romance. Instead, expect him being very predictable and very easy(too easy) going about many things. Swiss men are not very family orientated and quite cold when it comes to such matters. Swiss men are stable, responsible and are excellent men to be with. And Swiss men love foreign women

Maybe because the Swiss women wear the pants in a Swiss house!

In my 25 years living here, I have NEVER met a Swiss woman I could live with, and that should not be a reflection on my character!

I'm not Swiss, let me confess right now, but I don't wear skirts often, and neither does my husband.
Luckily, we wear trousers in different sizes. Imagine the anarchy in our home otherwise .

In my experience the Swiss women don`t usually have their pants on and that is half of their attraction. The other half is that they can chop wood fetch water bear children carry the old man back from the pub and still have time to bake a cake and knit the mother-in law a pair of mittens. God bless them all.

Your description basically covers what's called a Swiss Army Wife.
