He has an impression and I'm wondering what it's based on. Perhaps you need to chill.
No you weren't wondering what it's based on but simply asked how many households he had visited...just saying.

Could I ask the women on the forum if they want to take over running the world?

My guess is that they could do a much better job... if they could just stop talking.

I've never dated a Swiss woman but I've noticed this as well.
Sorry, I have to stop you here.... So you are telling us that until you met your girlfriend, you were a virgin?

i dunno. i kinda prefer it where a disagreements can be resolved with a quick punch up and a handshake afterwards rather than one where where you have to marshal friends from all sides to mob each other and then hold a grudge for the rest of your lives.

and for the lesbian part ...
well, nowadays saying one is a lesbian is simply part of the show you know.
nothing to get too excited about it.
Does this theoretically mean that when you wake up in a good mood in the morning that you actually expect the duvet to have risen with your equipment? Or am I just making up mental pictures here?

I don't think so, but I would propose:

"Could it be that all Swiss women are raving nymphomaniacs?"

From my experience, this certainly seems to be the case!

Tom
Please somebody else confirm this for me!!!
Confirmed.

Theoretically I'm not sure if I want to picture your mental pictures there and besides I haven't got a clue what you're talking about!

In Swiss families, I have the impression that the ones that decide family matters -or important matters of any kind- are women.

They are much more direct, taxative and authoritative.

I have also noticed that Swiss women tend to be less feminine. On the same note, I tend to perceive more lesbian women here.

Impressions?
No, no... Swiss women decide & then ask their partner on the issue pretending they haven't made their mind up. It's very complex & that is just the tip of the iceberg. You'll never understand if you just jump to conclusions already with these kind of questions...

Re: Swiss men weak, Swiss women strong, what's your take?

There is this other active thread on EF:
Mothers, mums, moms in Neuchatel


What kind of person (mom or whatever) you have to be to prefer to be on that thread rather than on this one?
