Re: Looking for new friends and not only

I am a bit surprised how often people here view an intention to find a girl friend as an intention to get any material benefits from this. Does this mean that here in CH all well-educated, well-paid, smart and good looking guys do not need girls at all? prefer guys? or so shy to express publickly their intention? Just curious.

I'm pretty sure they are just messing as in joking with you. It's all tongue-in-cheek and I wouldn't take it at all seriously.

My advice. Stop sweating the small stuff and, if you've not done so already, go check out the social events calendar and get started on meeting people of all diversities, ages, nationalities and so on as you stated you wanted to do in your original post.

You never know, whatever it is you are ultimately aiming for via the EF just might happen but if not, I bet you'll have a lot of fun along the way. The right attitude can carry a person far and then some...

Re: Looking for new friends and not only

Thanks for the good suggestions Honestly, I am a pretty outgoing person and have been able to find friends and mates, and I really enjoy various events as well, and spend time very very well here in CH. My comment was rather about the general approach.. I think it has already been said many times here that Swiss people are usually reserved and it takes time to make them open. Moreover, the people coming here from various parts of the world tend to get this feature from the locals over time

That's not what I ment. It has double meaning, this sentence of yours. Maybe you just need to get laid
And if you are so handsome, sexy, smart and sociable then I'm sure you don't have to prove it. People will notice!

don't be wrong here, Swiss girls would LOVE for some foreigner to walk up and talk to them - as long as you don't use the same boring phrases every Swiss guy uses cause he once read on a men's magazine they're funny and a real door opener

fixed that for you.

And you're right, men shouldn't go for magazines advise, it would be like thinking every girl do it like they see it in the porn films.
As well as girl shouldn't believe that making out with a guy and being sex buddies will lead you to the Best long lasting relationship EVER!

Re: Looking for new friends and not only

I fully agree with you, and these long lasting relationships should be based on trust, not on tricks. It is very important that you should not only take something, but also give something, and be always open and sincere.

Re: Looking for new friends and not only

If we're starting threads to get people reinstated who have self-deleted, maybe if we ask nicely we can find someone to help Alex get laid. I have no idea about pimping commissions these days, 150% maybe....?

Re: Looking for new friends and not only

Or instead of investing money in a one-night stand, you could get a membership with Swissfriends and actively pursue women looking for love, or friendship with an option of true love.... just like you.

Or go to Langstrasse and help some women out. They will appreciate your CHF. And you get laid quicker. :-) Everyone's happy!

Fair enough but if you say that it adds pressure (and screams im desperate). Maybe you should say you want to meet people as friends and if it leads to more then great
