Aside: some languages don't distinguish between fingers and toes. In Slovene, they are all "prst".
And in Italian, "dita".

But what the hell is THIS?

It sounds to me like you made a lame and cowardly attempt to play with her head by dropping this hint about another woman. What is that about? Were you testing her to see if she is a cheap conquest by playing with her head?

So that ring warded off your advance, and instead of playing with her head, you ended up playing with your own head. That is just, no?

If I were you, I would come clean before it is too late. Playing with her head could be very, very dangerous. This may be what is called a 1,000 year old fox in Asia - Kitsune. If true, you could already be dead meat.

Read about Kitsunetsuki.
I think he is playing the card of friendship, so when she turned out to be not available, it is not too embarrassing for him, and I agree it is over complicated...it might work in Asia, but here girls could find it too indirect?

And I enjoyed the reading on Kitsunetsuki

Re: To ask her out or not?

OK guys!

I really would want to send a screenshot of the text conversation made today, only if it was appropriate to publicise!

Right, it is a birthday gift from her mom and she found it more comfy to wear it on right hand finger (while she knows in zurich they wear it on same finger when they get married). She initially said she is getting married, and seconds later she said shes joking and there is "no marriage for her".

I suppose I left it at that stage and will wait until shes back and ask her face to face and update ye.

cheers for the nice comments and input.

Wow that sounds really promising, and she must be glad that you asked to clarify

Good luck!

Re: To ask her out or not?

I'm just looking forward to the new post stating "I am flirting with this guy over and over again and he just won't take the hint and ask me out. Should I just move on?" It's the beginning of a romance comedy.

Looks like I missed the most important information: she is Japanese.

Prior to going to Japan in an academic interchange, I asked my Japanese classmates for some tips on Japanese women. However, the best tip I received, BY A LONG MARGIN, came not from them but from a French friend who had lived in Tokyo: "Dude, Japanese women, (un)fortunately are raised to serve their men. But they unconsciously like to be submissive to men even in other settings... ". He was 100% right

In plain good English: if you want to date her, take the initiative and be bossy.

might seem stupid, but what the hell a simple ring on the fourth finger on right hand does mean?!

I have been lucky(?) to manage to meet a local lady while my German language is like her Japanese language.

I interpret that the OP is Japanese and is not fluent in German. His target is Swiss "local" or possibly German and speak no or little Japanese.

OP perhaps you can clarify.

she is Swiss, and I meant by the "my german is like her japanese" to say: my german language skills are as bad as her Japanese language skills (i.e I cant speak or understand german and she cant speak or understand japanese)

Hence: My bad Gemran language = Her bad Japanese Language

haha.. I thought the word Local is more politically correct one.. reading previous threads, seems the word *swiss* in any context attracts a lot of negativity

pretty sure that applies to most women in general

case in point: 50 shades of grey hype.

hell, it probably applies to a very large proportion of humans with a penis, as well.

"Local" is positive? With a capital L is it usually used as an insult on here... anyway: Does her name by any chance start on y?

I suppose I said: politically correct.
Her name does not contain Y (uep-si-lohn is hardly used in German as starter letter - I can be smart arse too ;-) ) but however, I hear most of German words ending with Y in as in english!!!!

Ps whole Schweiz is smaller than West Virginia, so I suppose local is still applicable.
