It's all starting to make sense now, many people have said the thought I look italian when then first me me. That I look very italian.
Man people are shallow.
I don't think it has to do a lot with nationality but with culture: for ex. in Italy or Portugal almost no woman is single and for them it's really important to have a boyfriend!Here women are happy to be single!

Italian women who moved here recently were complaining that men did not approach them or make compliments, while Swiss women don't like that.

I read somewhere that around 50% of Swiss men in Zurich marry foreign women (Brasilian, Thai, Philippinas & Russian especially). There must be a reason for that,right?

For me even Asian & Arabic culture (importance of family for ex.) is somehow more similar to the Italian one than the Swiss German.

There is something wrong when an Italian talks about giving up on women. I think you are simply looking for the wrong thing at the wrong place.

As I recall from my player dayz. Women are like musical instruments to be played by musicians. The problem with Switzerland is that the women do no seem like the same instruments one has mastered how to play. You could spend your life practicing the piano, guitar or saxophone. But when you get to Switzerland and only find bongos, cymbals and triangles, what does one do? I suppose one can play Guggamusik if it can be tolerated.

You know Italy is only a couple of hours drive. There are plenty of women in Italy who are on top of their game, and can get your blood pumping. Why not look there?

But, this cant be an advantage. If no girl is single, how can you ever find one? Big strong fella approaching me with an angry face and steam coming out of his ears: "this my girl, no touchi, no looki"..

Bless Zurich :-)

I have been in couple with a bisexual girl. She had a girlfriend too, and I never felt this as a threat. She was living with me, and seeing her girlfriend (married!) some times.
We finally broke up, but not because of this.
Would you have been so cool if she Hetrosexual and was seeing a guy (married!) sometimes?

Probably not, I have to admit it
It was like her girlfriend was giving her something different. In the case of a man, maybe I would have fell I was not good enough.

On my side, I had a few short relationships with other girls during this period and she was ok with it, I think she had sufficient trust in herself and in me to no worry much about it.

Well, what was left there to worry or trust about?

Obviously she could only have trust in HERSELF! What was there left to trust YOU!

You're a funny guy!!! Shall we hang out together sometimes?

I meant she trusted me to keep our relationship strong and in a central place in my life
I never "cheated" on her, as everything was limpid.

Thank you for the funny guy

You better start looking.. I mean you wouldn't want to know that the man of your life is married to another woman, right?
heh, I don't believe that there is only ONE right for you. Relationships are compromising. Nobody is 100% perfect an all that.
Besides, no one of you guys would really know if I was seeing someone at the moment nor if I had my eyes on someone truly special. This I wouldn't unveil on a public forum, some things are just better in private.

I try to be "limpid" too, but doesnt work for me

Notice you have gone "grey" from 2 "greens" - What are you doing right?
I feel like nobody takes my posts "seriously" anymore

Not sure what that means, but limpid does not sound very good for your manhood.

@st2lemans - Good point!

@Italian_vero - In your quest for a date here, have you tried spending time, weekends for example, in the Italian part of Switzerland at all?
