OP, you marketed the idea wrong and you've irritated delicate sensibilities.

I'd have approached it like this: "My apartment will have an extra room and I'm looking to rent it out. Ideally I'd like to negotiate a discount in exchange for the performance of some light housework. Does anyone have experience with this?"

Your motives might be pure but people aren't seeing it that way...
I would love to give him benefice of doubts... but he makes such a hard work at pretending to be a middle age almost divorcee pervert looking for some easy girls happy to use his money all over the forum...

That ain't to help you darling...

Maybe you are correct, something like "Professional Gent living in kusnacht requires live in House Keeper to attend to house duties, look after kids every second weekend, 700chf a month paid , plus half of travel and language course expenses"

You're absolutely right - they come in all shapes, sizes, colours, genders, etc.

You will have the kids only one weekend on two and you need someone to take care of them....

You like to tell us that you are having lots of money but you are too cheap to pay full fees of travel and language courses...

Wow, I find it impossible to believe that such a great guy is available for all the ladies out there!

Re: House Keeper in Switzerland

Au pairs are supposed to be helpers. Some light housework, and 'helping' with children, never have sole charge. Their health care has to be provided, and time given for a language course paid for by the family.

As i already have a 23yo super model lined up to do the job...i just want to know what the legal requirments are for a "House Keeper " or personal assistant...
As said already, the Fed. legislature for the first time just imposed minimum wages for house cleaners of chf 18.20 per hour (min. qualifications) also apparently due to people taking advantage of them. If you want to call them personal assistant or whatever, then they would be covered by general employment law and other (presumable) wage scales.

I have it under very good authority that Nil is, and I quote, "absolutely stunning". It takes a lot for one woman to say that about another woman when she is not present.

That's the beauty of the internet - you write things publicly you would never speak out loud in a bar... it really doesn't take balls to do so, I guess that exlpains the high quota of females on EF.

On a related note: I tried everything from the advanced search to "powered by google" - Who finds the legendary "I am a super model driving a VW golf with matching color bumpers" thread for us? It is a bit old, but might be just what the OP is looking for...

Hmm, no, I tell women I think they're stunning in person if this is the case. Since I haven't had the pleasure of meeting Nil myself, I have to take someone else's word for it; that person told me face to face btw and not online.

That one appears to have come and gone. However, this one Girls for cars :) might be a perfect match.
