Re: Best Dating Websites

I've met two nice men from the Swissfriends dating site but no romance in sight.

I'm so glad to be using a nickname and no picture. After a first initial contact with a prospective candidate, the man signed off using his real name. I looked more closely at his picture and realized I knew the man from many years ago and had no desire to get in contact with him again.

I've been in brief contact with men who are desperately looking for a girlfriend and a few men who are desperately just hard up. Luckily, these contacts never involved a meeting or divulging my real name or picture.

Re: Best Dating Websites

With the amount of single lonely expats (or Swiss who happen to like speaking English) on EF, perhaps attending some of the events would be the nicest way to meet a loved one ?

It seems that EF has celebrated several weddings over the past few years

That's right, it's also a way to find somebody.....

Got a first woman interested on Swissfriends.

And she's quite interesting too

Well yes and no.
Just be careful with the bed hoppings, don't do too many test rides

It's also well known that friendships have ended because A slept with B and then C. B and C can't be friends anymore and B and B's friend D can't be friend with a dickhead like A, even though D has also slept with B, E and F ... and so goes the spiderweb.
(let's just hope everyone knows Durex and his friends)
The expat world ain't that big ya know!

But no doubt about it, there are some excellent single people from EF and it's really beyond me why they stay single.

Maybe the ladies need to look further ahead out of the cloud world

"Bed hoppings" doesn't always mean "loved one" or "wedding" for that matter either.
And like any small community there's always loads of gossip. People love to discuss others, it takes their mind off of their daily problems.
Why worry about that ?

Just be true, pay no heed to what people believe, or think they know, or guess they know because B told C about E and D just happened to be listening in.. it's of no importance.

Have fun even and make 'em chat up a storm

But seriously now.... people on EF often have common interests and seem to enjoy being together. I find it a quite natural place for singles to meet and mingle with the young couples with kids, the long-married items, the newly-divorced etc. There's no pressure, and the icebreaker is chatting about the forum and figuring out who is who.

Even if a person isn't looking for a partner, it is, in my personal experience, a lovely way to make new friends. I've met two of my closest friends here.

Re: Best Dating Websites

....an empty room now, all is silence, your smile and kind sweet laughter is missing.
Thank you Begga for your gift of heart and generosity.
