Did you move to Switzerland on your own?

Hey folks!

Some background about me:
I'm a 40 year old guy - Irish EU citizen. Currently single, and have been living in Vancouver, Canada for the past three years.
I'm a senior software developer (18 years experience) and I studied German in school, so I should pick it up pretty quick.

Due to family reasons in Ireland, I'm thinking about moving closer to home - and I'm deciding between Zurich and other cities in Europe.
To be honest, Vancouver is a pretty 'clicky' place. Whilst you can meet lots of new people here, it's quite tough to build a close circle of friends.

I'm curious if anyone around my age has experience of moving to Zurich on their own? Was it easy to meet new people and form a group of friends? Are most of your friends expats or local Swiss?

I'll be doing this move solo. Any help greatly appreciated!

Will probably have lots of other questions but will save them for other threads!
