Looking for the girl with broken left leg reading book in Zurich Letten

Looking for the girl with broken left leg reading book in Zurich Letten.
I meet her on Saturday 19 Jun 2021 around 9pm.
She broke a leg some weeks ago and she had an operation about two weeks ago.
Blue (pretty) eyes.
She was reading a book and we spoke briefly.
She is originally from Germany.
I would love to talk to her again.
If you see her please tell her that I would love to talk to her again (PM me)

Your chance of her seeing this here is very small. If you are serious try RonOrp. That is widely used in Zurich

I've now deleted the phone number, sorry, I tried to search for the rules for about 5 min and couldn't find them.

You should go at the same place tonight, maybe she'll be there hoping to meet you again.

Perhaps put a poster up (with a picture of a cat with a leg in a cast – just to attract attention) on some nearby lamp posts? But beware of idiots who are likely to contact you. Maybe set up a free email address just for this.

You could also try Facebook groups (just search for Zurich or Zürich) and ask for people to share your message.

Try and get your story on the message board of 20min.ch
You might not get on it first try but try and try again. You never know.

I trust EF will get a wedding invite, should it come to it.

also found this

https://www.internations.org/zurich-expats/germans/de

Facebook group for Germans living in Switzerland
https://www.facebook.com/groups/deutscheauswanderer/

This one is more Luzern area, but it's a small world, isn't it?

If she's likely to be a student, you could also try via university groups.

Good luck

There is this column/section in one of the Swiss tabloids. 20min I'm thinking here, where one can post a text message to a missed connection. Might be worth a shot.

Also, there is this girl at work, she messed up her right ankle, she's not German but she's fluent in it. Just in case the search for the girl with the broken left foot doesn't pan out as you hoped, that might be a feasible plan b.

What would the chances be, if the girl with the dragon tattoo also had pearl earrings and happen to trip and fall somewhere near Letten and break her left leg? All I'm saying is, would OP mind if she only spoke Hungarian?

Re: Looking for the girl with broken left leg reading book in Zurich Letten

Given that you spoke, it sounds like you would have had the chance to exchange numbers or hand over a contact card. Doesn't quite feel like a qualifying 'missed connection'.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missed_connection

per the stats only 13% are women trying to connect to men...

Looks like OP wants his 2nd chance

I wonder if she appreciates all this public attention.
