Re: is it hard to pick up girls in swiss clubs

In my experience, if you're not wonderfully good-looking and at ease with your body (about 0.1% of the male population) a club is the last place on earth to go pick up a girl.

As a girl myself (well, before I acquired a husband and kids), I used to go clubbing to have fun with my friends, not to attract weirdos who want to chat to me, which is next to impossible anyway with the loud music.

Re: is it hard to pick up girls in swiss clubs

Girls (and I speak from experience, as I am one) don't like being "hit on" or "picked up."

Try joining a class or club/group or something. And let things happen naturally.

Best of luck.

That's a very good suggestion.

Here's a club the OP could join: http://www.blksv.ch/

Re: is it hard to pick up girls in swiss clubs

Believe it or not, european girls dont go to clubs to be picked up. Its much harder to convince a european girl.

Theres no secret.

Be confident, without being arrogant.
Be funny without being a clown.
Make an effort with your appearence (you dont need to look like ryan reynolds, though it probably helps).
Expect not to succeed every time (no one does). Learn to cope with rejection.
Have something which actually makes you interesting.

There you go. 5 rules, if you like. More often then not, i manage to be 'successful'.

Dont go to a club with the idea that you can stick your crotch into a girl, and she'll like it. No classy girl likes that. Instead, look to take advantage of the natural interactions, like at the bar, in the queue, etc. If you're committed, take up smoking. The best place to talk to people in a club is usually the smoking room, and if they're locals, they probably smoke too.

*not actually recommending you start smoking just to meet girls.

Or take drugs, girls who do take the same drugs as you will have something in common with you, and the girls who don't take drugs are attracted by the bad boy rebel image and their mothering instinct will kick in. It's WIN WIN!


I mean if Pete Doherty can do it anyone can!

Re: is it hard to pick up girls in swiss clubs

And some pretty good advice in this preview from Uncle.

Advice like:
1) Don't be yourself.
2) Tell good jokes like "Q) Why do blondes wear knickers? A) To keep their ankles warm"
3) Chat up lines like "Do you like to wake up with zero regrets and a man that knows how to hold you?"

My experiences with our girls night out mostly include a weird part into it. If we dance together, too often a guy will come straight behind me and will push his genitals on my butt in some kind of a demand of procreation activity...

If we stand chatting, we will always get into conversation with who ever feel like joining us. But again, it seems like we attract weirdos who will try to make a move on one of us if not all of us in hope one of us will fall for his attention.

So we now start acting like we are not interested in any kind of interaction with any strangers what so ever beside the bartender.
So, there's the solution. Be a bar steward.

I have been a bartender in my early twenties. I can assure you the bartender is your best bet OP as they can not run away and have to hear all the most stupid pick up lines, stories and miseries of the customers.

Re: is it hard to pick up girls in swiss clubs

I don't have a perfect answer for this question but i try to explain. (I'm a 22 year old swiss girl.)

While clubbing it's very different how girls react on approaches of guys.

First it depends on the club:

There are high class clubs, where girls go to with high heels and super styled. Most of them are looking for rich guys. If you approach them and seem rich, they will chat with you, otherwise they might just ignore you.

There are normal clubs, where girls are still nicely dressed, but not as if it's a horserace. It can also be that they're just wearing shirt and jeans with sneakers like in a bar. Those girl can be normal, bitchy, fun...huge variety of girl types

The second thing:

If a girl has a boyfriend, she clearly shows no interest, turns around or ignores you. This can seem rude.

If a girl is single but no looking - just there to have fun with her friends. She will do the same - maybe more or less nicely telling you she's not interested.

All in all i can say:

Every girl in the world is the same in one point: If you approach her like a douchebag, she'll react bitchy. And every girl is different - one might react on your normal approach not nicely but others will be nice and fun. Just keep trying (but try not to look desperate).

And you also have to see that we have a wide variety of cultures (italians, albanian, spanish, dutch, french, arab, bosnian, turkish..) - from their cultural background not every girl will react the same.

And yes, swiss girls aren't that easy to get laid as americans, swedish or eastern european girls. But does that make them arrogant or bad?

I hope you'll succeed in meeting nice swiss girls. There are plenty of them.

Ouch. But I guess you did mention in your post that some girls can be bitchy.

Ofc you only quote the negative parts. Take it however you like it, i just tried to explain a bit.

And as i said above: if you act like a douchebag, every girl reacts bitchy. Origin doesn't matter in that case..
