Zurich, yesterday, Tram 4, Bellevue:

Swiss couple (well at least talking Swiss German) playing endless tonsil tennis, totally oblivious to the rest of the people in the area. No sign of passivity, coldness, boredom.

It sizzled Bellevue, I can tell you!
Ooooohhhh, I got an even better one. Sunday, tram line 2, lindenplatz. Woman sitting on lap of boyfriend, popping pimples on his face, then more making out, then more picking at his face, then onto the tram with lots more making out. Ick.

You live in the right part of switzerland where you find some foreign english speaking girls ... I can't talk to most girl because I don't understand swiss german.
I know ice-breaking is difficult here. My experience here is that if you don't put yourself on the line, it's not gonna happen. But if you ever should manage to break ice, I notice an increase interest in practicing english among the younger generation. Look for a sunny afternoon to strike up a nice chat.

Practice on Swiss men if you're not sure. Remember to put "Swiss men" after each post here.

But... When I met him I was about three stone lighter and that is one thing that Swiss men seem to be notorious for, unless you are slim, you get put in the "you should be happy I'm bothering with you"-corner. Germans seem to be less fixed on that first impression or rather can be charmed into liking a not-so perfect girl; dito for most other nations I've come across. Maybe it's the whole "trophy living" thing and I have to admit I'm guilty of the same crime (though decreasingly so with age and increasing sense),
Is this relevant to the notorious "back-door action" post of yours a while ago? - we should be told

Umm, no. My former flatmate and I are not the same person. And anyway, she is more like around six stone lighter, you can see her spine through her clothes.

Ah yes, but that's the beauty of the dating game, one man's loony is another man's quirky, adorable girl.
Yeah, I like to say I'm crazy in the cute/entertaining way as opposed to the insane/psycho b*itch way

As long as you are going to stop-short of describing yourself as "kooky" then things will be just fine.

Agree. Completely. Totally. 100%. I dont like to hear/see it when am on a tram/bus/train, trying to eat lunch in a cafe, or just going about my business in town either. I just find it odd that for a "reserved" nation, there doesnt seem to be any issue with public displays of affection.

Re: dating swiss men

I dont know what this entire group is taling about!? I live in the countryside so maybe its differant? But Swiss women out here flirt NON-STOP! The guys are very closed and only open up when they are around their friends. Unless the girl is going to **** him, he wont open up. He thinks he is going to make him self look stupid if he makes the wrong move. These guys try to fix up their cars like rockets to make up for insecurity I think. Because they are affraid to talk with women or do anything out-side the box.

Please note this ad from Switzerland Tourism on their campaign "for women only" advertising their men!!!!

I have to say, I find (ok, not all, but a few) Swiss men tremendously hot, which makes it a shame that they are indeed, very passive!

HAHAHAHAH, this deserves a thread on its own!

I don't know if you read the thread, but your making the same point.

And I notice and agree that Swiss girls have been more aggressive with the flirting lately. I'm not complaining a bit. They're adorable when they smile.
