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

Well, from what I have experienced in my life, dating can be a nightmare in a huge city, like Zurich. I used to live in London and back then I went out on like a million FIRST dates. The guys just have so much choice they go crazy. When there are plenty of fish in the sea you cannot appreciate meeting someone really. Pity, let's hope your friends find love this year :-)

even one that does not fit my expectations is impossible to meet (and I have lived herefor 2.5 years)
Ma si sei veramente un italiano vero, non dovrebbe essere cosė difficile? Jokes aside, I guess if you are used to women being flattered by male attention rather than downright scared of it, it is VERY hard here.

for me women in Zurich are like robots without feelings, emotions, desire who prefer to be alone...but that's only my impression due to my experience of course

London is probably th ebest place in Europe to meet people!Distances can be a problem there, but if there is interest there is a second time (I lived there for a year)

That would be supply and demand, then.

Have you thought about pretending to be English? We're considered to be the ne plus ultra of gentlemen amongst Swiss ladies.

I can lend you my cravatte if you like.

No way!

I'll have to tell that to my best Scottish male friend here to try and change his mind about leaving in a couple of months.
