Nice. Now we're getting personal too.
So, 48 pages, no conclusion, time to shut it down, eh?
I was only referring to comments that Kittster made several pages back ...

Grumpygit - I don't want someone who doesn't (want to) know a thing about healthy eating and exercise, because we would constantly be fighting. Having a serious illness made me very sensitive (some would say intolerant) to people treating their own bodies like a rubbish bin.
Two years ago, there was an atheist lad who had had a few unsatisfying relationships with practising Christian women, and who had, therefore, decided that he'd never date a chapel girl because they "would constantly be fighting".

Two years ago, there was a good Christian girl who was reluctant to date an atheist because the bible warns about being "unequally yoked" with an unbeliever, because this invariably leads to a situation where the couple "would constantly be fighting".

As it turned out, each threw their "woulds" out the window and went for it anyway.

And a good job it was, too, as I'm sure MathNut would agree.

Seriously, if you're that unhappy about being single, drop the tickboxes and learn to see people as the beautifully ugly, hopeless, fallible human beings they are (just like you).

I don't want to keep these guys, just borrow them. In a way, it's better, everybody gets to make believe their life is totally ok the way it is.

Well that for sure is something important and I genuinely wish you the very best. But if you want to meet a soul mate, and it may not be for today, then you need to understand that person too. I don`t reckon fat people want to be fat, and thin people want to be thin, just like baldy blokes ..... oh never mind. However, if you channel that energy into helping that person to be healthier because their character and personality allows it, then you are IN LIKE FLYNN ! Wish you well.

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

That's what Begga meant...

It's fine, I realise most women have a very black and white view about this and that I'm a perfect projection surface for all the insecurities that this whole subject unleashes. Until someone truly wrecks their home, then suddenly the bargaining starts, "you can have an affair, I just don't want to know about it, please don't leave me". Or they contact the mistress, want to meet her, make her feel like she is the devil incarnate. Honey, your HUSBAND strayed, not me... If it isn't me, it'll be some other girl.

But hey, let's get back on the topic. Unless it's now - why is it so hard to get a date with someone you want to see again and who will then stay faithful forever and ever...

No Way,
You know floowing this thread is like the last lyric in the Eagles song Hotel California:
"You can check out any time you like.. but you can... NEVER LEAVE (guitar solo)"
Too true...besides I was lying about that!

I think DB and Dino went back to back with the best logic earlier. I also don't have a rigid set of rules, and have met some amazing people and am constantly entertained by the characters I meet.
Ahem...what was that "three strikes and their out" thingy you mentioned to me at the Open Mic sesh that time? . Anyway, even if a person does, it's nice to try and break them sometimes and just see what happens... for me it always comes back to the letting go principle and just going with the flow...

Well, at the risk of sticking my neck out, I would say that in your own case you are going for the wrong type of guy, ie, those who are already attached.

As to why it is difficult to find a date in Zurich, or anywhere else for that matter, is difficult to say (as the length of this thread would imply). All I would say is get out there, get involved in activities, enjoy the fresh air and look as though you are enjoying life.

I reckon the secret is... and it may well be different for each person ..... the date is the second or third occasion, there are bad people out there and there are good people. The only difference is that the bad people appear to be the good people and the good people....well you get the idea.

If the fat bloke can keep up with my bedroom antics, no problem. Things is, I've dated a seriously fat guy and it's not fun feeling you have to go get a crane to change position. By fat I mean "can't see his feet or trouser snake", which is definitely not healthy - healthy and reasonably sane are pretty important to me. I try to avoid people who have a negative influence on my life or health and a drug popping, beer guzzling chimney smoker is just going to have endless arguments with me, so really, it's him who would rule me out.
Fat blokes last longer in bed

We're all bad people, really. The sooner we can acknowledge that, the sooner we can recognise that other people aren't as bad as we might think they are...

Bad:- tell her whatever she wants to hear, get what you want, leave shortly afterwards
Good:- be honest , she is really cute

I never found it hard to find a date in Züri.

But then again, in those days, I didn't have a pet rabbit to have to worry about, either...
