Start chain smoking, email him photos of you looking miserable, and just tell him what to do.

I often wait days for a reply but is fine talking on the phone. He is not enthusiatic about coming to visit me in England so I often think he is not really interested but then he will say something that shows he is interested
He's stringing you on til something better comes along. If he was really interested, he'd pop on the plane to visit you. At the moment, he's just satisfying his ego.

Your choices are:

1. Keep letting yourself get stringed.
2. Tell him you're not interested anymore and see his reaction
3. Jump on a plane and jump on him.

Re: english woman dating swiss man

Did you make an appointment to text him though? This might be where you went wrong. Likewise, you may be subject to delays in his repsonse, particularly if it was either of said pre-arranged days where he would be too busy to respond promptly:

Wash day
Mow lawn day
Pick up dry cleaning day
Pay bills day


What time was you texting him? It if was 9pm UK time, that means it was 10pm here, he was likely in bed or busy turning the TV down.

Re: english woman dating swiss man

Call his bluff - Say something along the lines that you have been offered a free lift over in the next couple of weeks and how about a meet up?

See what reaction you get and you will find your answer.

Re: english woman dating swiss man

Are you texting and mailing in English? Perhaps his written English isn't very good and he needs a lot of time to make sure he's written everything correctly before he answers.

Re: english woman dating swiss man

Being a swiss man and looking like an english woman I would qualify to answer you. But all I can say is that adrianlondon is usually right.

That's scary, as I usually just make stuff up! Maybe what I make up somehow becomes the future.

That's a good film plot. I'll see if Bruce Willis wants to play me. That didn't come out right. I meant play with me. No. I meant play my role. Umm.

Maybe not such a bad suggestion:



Virtually indistinguishable, I'd say.

Re: english woman dating swiss man

I went around as suggested and I pretty much figured out the problem from the moment the door opened. It wasn't rocket science or even my degree in psychology with honors in human studies that allowed me to draw this conclusion so expeditiously. It wasn't a hunch, or some wild obscure test case that I remembered from my illustrious past, it was more obvious and blatant in presentation.

He, is in fact, a she.

So sorry ....

The real question here is:

Was your degree free or did you have a loan?
