Not most.
But 30% of the marriages are to foreign nationals, of which the majority are Asians, AFAIK. Also popular: South America and Eastern Europe.
The neighbor next door, too. His wife is Thai.

BTW: 30% of the Swiss women also marry husbands from out-of-country.
(Some then show up here in the forum...).

That's right, although you forgot to mention that those blonde russian girls usually divorce from those rich swiss cowboys after a couple of years, while the latinos are usually more reliable for what it matters...

Re: Why is it so hard to find a date in Zurich?! (hope my friends wont kill me)

Hi,

I have been living in Zurich just for 4 months, I'm from Colombia-Barranquilla, but living almost all my life in Venezuela. I applied for a international program and I got it, that's why I'm in Zurich. I'm not really looking for a date, but I'm looking for friends and share our time/cultures, have a good time=). In my department manz people have just moved to here, I have two female friends, one from Paris and other from Australia, we can make a group to meet up!!!!

We can arrange something, what do you think? take care .Jaque

Seems to me that when one ain't looking that's when lots of opportunities present themselves ...

Re: Why is it so hard to find a date in Zurich?! (hope my friends wont kill me)

I can't help but wonder if one of the reasons why so many men and women here seem to have trouble hooking up is because, in my opinion, a lot of the women here seem very un-approachable and vain and seem to think that life is little more than a fashion show (especially in Zurich). I can even see evidence of this here on this forum, where so many women try to look like some kind of fashion-obsessed movie star in their profile pictures (those cheesy "glamor shots" from the 1980s come to mind), rather than just presenting themselves as being down-to-earth, with their priorities straight. And, well, it's been my experience that most mature and intelligent men prefer having serious relationships with women they can carry good conversations with, etc. to those who seem to think that they can get by in life with their looks alone.
Of course, I'm sure there are plenty of intelligent women here. I just wish the majority of them were quicker to exploit their intellect rather than their narcissism.

Re: Why is it so hard to find a date in Zurich?! (hope my friends wont kill me)

But mine's not.

Anyways, I find it difficult to find humor in a woman even jokingly presenting herself that way, knowing how much pop culture and the media have completely warped so many women's identities.

So it's ok for a man to present himself as a louche aristocrat drinking champagne on the lawn, but heaven forbid that a woman might, in the same spirit, present herself as a big-haired pneumatic model from the eighties... is that what you are saying?

Haha! Don't worry about mine. I'm much better looking IRL, hence the need to dumb it down...
