In pyjamas?! We did that in full gear, including shoes. At the age of 10, nota bene. But I lost the proving paper for it ..... lonely times ahead, I guess.
England, mid-80s for me. I don't really remember what we wore but I'm sure it was without shoes and with a swimming cap. I hate swimming caps to this day

Why Swiss men when there are plenty of charming, witty, intelligent, gallant, well-educated, gentle, caring, good-looking, kilt-wearing, lonely Scotsmen here in Switzerland?
I've asked that myself.

Thanks for replies again! This thread is becoming quite entertaining
I found a solution I think: I go back to Sweden or Netherlands for holidays and bring a lad with myself to marry ... preferably somebody who can cook and looks after kids 😋
What your saying is you also want someone tall...

Re: Swiss men and dating

Can someone enlighten me on what a quantum analyst is and does?
What I can find says they work in real estate, basically value assessment and debt/dues enforcement and collection (perhaps a bit oversimplified but hopefully not entirely wrong).

If that's roughly right a PhD seems overkill squared from a local's perspective as an apprenticeship will do just fine (perhaps complemented with a few relatively short evening courses). This may be one of the hints OP's looking for.

Who knows. Maybe the people behind "the secret" (book, remember?) claim they're in the business too.
After all, you will never know about a secret PhD. (Which actually would make them most congenial = perfect for dating.

It's always amused me: If a man says he doesn't want to date a fat woman, he's attacked no end. If a woman says she doesn't want to date a short man, it's considered female prerogative.



(Full transparency: my wife and I are both 180cm, but she won't wear heels when we're out together )

Not convincing. When I look at that picture, just have his corpus a bit shorter (and the head normal size, like the other) to ensure the two meters being proportioned as you like them - then add long, muscular legs and he's bloody perfect.

The statistics will soon show that Star Wars geeks have a lower infection rate than Star Trek geeks due to the much greater incidence of full-face helmet wearing.
Well that doesn't bear well for humanity.
