Re: East Asian guy in Switzerland & Swiss Girls

I think the word you seek is ostentatious.

The OP does seem a little smug and up his own arse, I agree

Where did I ever say I was flashing money? I was walking around in jeans and a t-shirt as a tourist, got inordinate attention from some Swiss girls, and wondered why that happened (meaning, it usually doesn't happen to me very often that girls ask me out and flirt with me blatantly as I experienced in Switzerland). As I said, the last time that happened was when I was traveling in Eastern Europe, probably because they never saw a guy like me before their entire lives.

As I said, this was probably a question better left to another tall East Asian single male or at least non-white guy who's lived the single scene in Switzerland. But I just talked to a Hawaaian guy who's lived in Switzerland for a few years and confirmed some of my hunches, so I learned what I needed.
-----------------

i thought you dated girls from various western countries as you mention above..France, Austria etc.
and now you say...the last time that happened was when I was traveling in Eastern Europe.

Wish I haven't had the misfortune of seeing this thread. I think I've got to go throw-up now.

I'm East Asian, as in Japanese/Korean/Chinese.
Dude, I believe the majority will call it Oriental and not East Asian.

and, I also smell contradiction.

First you said you've never experience such a reception outside Eastern Europe but on you second post, you stated that you have dated GIRLS from Western Europe.

I could be horribly wrong, perhaps you don't flirt before you date?

I've rarely experienced such a reception outside of Eastern Europe and frankly, always figured Swiss girls would be 'closed' to foreigners (esp. those who don't speak German / French) and not really into non-white dating.

I'm 6'2" however and Western-educated. I also date a lot (i.e. have dated girls from France, Germany, Italy, Austria, etc.) so I think I can tell the difference between friendliness and outright sexual interest.

Re: East Asian guy in Switzerland & Swiss Girls

Ok, well, if you are charming, interesting and gorgeous, women, Swiss woman included, don't care what race, color or creed you are. I mean, why should they?

It seems the Swiss can't win. People complain because they are all racist, closed, unfriendly... Then people complain when they are friendly, charming & interesting/ed.

I don't get it.

No one is complaining about the swiss in this instance, or if they are, I can't see it.

Re: East Asian guy in Switzerland & Swiss Girls

Hi Truthseeker,


May be you could post your picture. We will find out if you are close to "Andy Lau" or "Jackie Chan" or "Jet Li".


Did you perform any stunts on Zurich streets or what ?

Re: East Asian guy in Switzerland & Swiss Girls

You're all right. I'm actually a little 5'3" chink with slit eyes and made it all up with feel better about myself.

Clearly, me, an oriental gook like couldn't possibly have experienced such things.

Guess my nigger friend and I will just leave all you white folks alone now and get back to the plantation.

Re: East Asian guy in Switzerland & Swiss Girls

FFS truthseeker

I think it's only fair that everyone gets the piss taken out of you. I was having a right laugh at this thread simply coz it had absolutely nothing to do with race/racism but with attitude.

And INMHO, you got the wrong one that's what you get when you post a thread that sounds like "all the birds in CH are after my gorgeous body, so in which city shall I settle down to have my harem"?

Then what the hell are you waiting for?

Instead of making such a stupid rebuttal, why not reveal yourself. And until you do, you're just doing the lambchop.

Re: East Asian guy in Switzerland & Swiss Girls

I needed something to bring a smile to my face as it's still peeing down outside and this did it - very funny indeed.

Langstrasse has been mentioned and also the possibility that the young ladies in question could have originated elsewhere "way aye man". But I think that probably really is the case. Swiss girls, as we are mostly all aware, are usually a little reserved in coming forward.

I think the girls in this experience were probably German speaking, maybe even dialekt speaking, foreigners. My question is, therefore, how do you know they were Swiss? Did they tell you they were or was it an assumption. Are you sure they weren't Austrian, Croation, Hungarian, German, Italian, Romanian, .....

Now to sit back and wait for the flaming for the girls from countries where I just inadvertently suggested they were easier than the Swiss.
