Hooking up with young swiss girls

Hi,
I am 18. This weekend I'm going to a party full of swiss (french speaking) girls. I have lived here a while and have still not been able to get it in unfortunately. I know decent french but bad at joking in it. Any tips? what do they look for? back home being king of the party and enjoying myself seems to work.

Re: Hooking up with young swiss girls

I'm sure your first problem is that most girls aren't into "hooking up," I think. Maybe if you try to meet someone with whom you can have a relationship, you might find that more satisfying...

Be yourself, don't get too pissed, don't act like a tit. Simple rules really and probably applicable to picking up any girls anywhere.

Re: Hooking up with young swiss girls

haven't you heard? the Swiss stopped having kids about 25 years ago, all those girls you meet will actually be from somewhere else in the world.

Also, don't lie. Eventually you run into somebody who knows somebody who knew you, and it all shatters like cheap glass... If you're outgoing as you claim, people in general are attracted to good charisma.

Really? I always found getting pissed and acting like a tit to be my strong suit.

Mine dew, when I was 18 I couldn't often afford to get properly pissed, so maybe not.

No worries for me, but things like choice of words (hooking up vs some other term) can really impact what others think of you.

Re: Hooking up with young swiss girls

Dont worry Forest, I think others might just be pulling your chain, at least I hope so. I surely can't believe that people genuinely believe girls arent into "hooking-up" whether that be on a friendly get to know basis, or on the basis of what every teenager in the world does and wants to do irrelevant of whether male or female.

I speak no French, but you will prob find they speak good English anyway, most young people here do now.

I would advise be yourself, be relaxed, be confident in yourself. The ability to hold a conversation, be interesting and engaging and with the ability to add humour and you will have no trouble hooking up, or "hooking up".

IME, while young people did what they did and will do what they do, there was a certain amount of "circumspection" or social protocol observed. Usually the ones who were crass and boorish were also the ones leaving alone.

Also, don't think of the language/cultural thing as entirely a disadvantage. Because you come from somewhere else, this is something that can make you interesting to other people. Share things about where you are from, but remember to ask at least as many (if not more) questions as you answer, because this makes the other person feel interesting to you.

Really surprised nobody else picked up on this classic piece of terminology - with all it's charming implications.

If you get it in on the first date, then she's probably not the type that you really want to be getting it in with ....... or maybe .......?

Getting pissed and feeling a tit, is an even better strategy.

I didn`t... Would seem to be 2 strikes with that attitude. And the game hasn`t even started.
