f 22 Zurich - Looking to meet up with people for drinks and giggles

Hi,

Ive been in Zurich since July working as an aupair. Im hoping to get to know some people out and about in Zurich.

Im 22 just graduated from university in the UK and taking a year out. Im interested in many things; art, reading, music, hiking, being outdoors, sport, fashion, current affairs, travelling. You name it.

Id love to get to know some people in the area. For drinks, tea/coffee, walks whatever.

Id love to hear from you!

Ducks

Re: f 22 Zurich - Looking to meet up with people for drinks and giggles

Hiya, I'm F 24 and have been here for like 3 weeks as I moved over from London to be with my boyfriend. I'm 20 minutes by train from Zurich (thank god otherwise the small village life would drive me crazy all the time!) I'm looking to meet some new people as well - I only know my boyfriend here, which is fine, but obviously I want a bit more interaction than just him, and some girls to chat and go out with. Do you want to meet for a drink next weekend? I'm free all weekend, so maybe we could meet for lunch or see a film? Hope you're settling in OK - can you speak any German or..the dreaded.. Swiss German? I'm typical English and only mastered a small amount of French once I'd left school, all of which has disappeared.

PS If anyone else fancies a meet up next weekend, let's see if we can organise a big group

Cheers,
Claire

Dogs don't like ducks.

I'd step in to help, but 3 under-25 au pairs is too much for me to handle.

Edit: my mistake, there are 4 of them. For some reason, that seems more manageable than 3. Hmmm.

I'm surprised that Uncle Max doesn't want to expand his collection. He could have a veritable harem on his hands...

Why not make it out to drinks tonight. Age means nothing. Regardless, most of us are in the 25-35 range.

Right, nice to see some fresher faced Members wanting to organise something. There are loads of 30- 40- 50+ at EF socials, but understandably sometimes it may be preferred to have a younger crowd get together. For dancing, talking about popular music and such.

Any Member can arrange a social event and you're encouraged to utilise the Forum for this express purpose; it has massive reach. Obviously it's not cool having rules - re. age etc - but completely understandable. There are lots of people between 20 - 25ish who'd like to hang out with others with similar er, perspectives so do get on and arrange it!

I can toss a 22 year old your way, and I'm sure more would come out of the woodwork.
