Quirky, friendly girl searching for nice people in ZH

I have been living in Switzerland for a little over 2 years but I have been living in Kanton Aargau up until few months ago.
Now that I am living in Zürich, I would like to meet new people to do something on weekdays or Saturdays.
I just got married almost 3 weeks ago ( I still can't believe that I really got married...) and at the moment I am not working but I am searching for a job!
I have always been an active person and I don't like staying inside too much especially not having someone to talk to but in the last 2 years it was bit difficult to do things I used to do before coming here. So...it is time to rediscover myself .....
I have a very good friend (she is really a true friend) that lives in Baden and I see her maybe once a month as she is mostly working on weekends so I would like to meet a nice, sensitive person in ZH also .
I live close to Triemli hospital and close to Uetliberg and sometimes I like running on the mountain in the morning and sometimes doing the Vita Parcours (now that is really fun for me!). Although I am not in such a good shape as I used to be, I would like to get ''back on track'' and go running every morning or just play volleyball, badminton, dancing...anything is fine .
I don't have a bike yet . I can't swim but I would love to learn!
I am willing to try almost anything: no bungee jumping! Skydiving yes but bungee jumping no. Never.
I am a bit shy at first but I am nice, friendly, adventurous, sometimes goofy, I am a good listener and I would like to meet some friendly, honest people that know what life is all about and I can connect to.
I like outdoor activities of any kind, fares, visiting museums, exploring, sports, music, dancing and reading science publications. I like more things but it would take too much space .
PS: I am not a drinker, I don't smoke and I don't go to clubs (there is no problem from time to time but I am not the clubbing type). So, if you are searching for someone to drink with you, get ''wasted'' and go to a club and get weirdo, then please don't contact me. I may be weird sometimes but really some things are just not my things. Just being honest.
Thanks for reading!

Re: Quircky, friendly girl searching for nice people in ZH

Im not in Zurich (im in Basel) but i enjoyed your post and just wanted to write back and say hello--- Hello

Congratualtions on your wedding I got married 4 months ago back home (In Ireland) and it was a wonderful day.. Although its true what they say, it goes by way too fast.

I can swim... badly... as in i wouldnt drown in a pool lol.

Hope you find some like minded poeple.

Take care

It is funny that I don't skate...but yeah I don't. No roller skating no ice skating but I am willing to try that also...again. I tried once roller skating and it was very fun but I didn't continue .

Thank you.
My wedding day was wonderful also . I thought it will rain or snow or just be a terrible day but the weather was very very nice!
I can swim also ...like you .
It is true that in 2 years living I don't have some ''steady'' friends. I did try to meet some people and I met some people but I didn't see them again after our meeting. I have my husband's friends but...they are not my friends. I want my own.
At first I thought there is something wrong with me and I was saying: ''But why those girls didn't like me??'' until I understood that I am who I am and if someone wants to meet me again, the is fine, if not, then is again fine... So... if one day you are in ZH then we can do something together .

Hey there, edited a typo from your title, just know that moving does not really secure steady friends, but having patience does. There are a bunch of nice folks in your new area and a lot happening, just venture out. If you feel like iceskating, I miss my Ukraininan ice skating partner, let me know, I will have my skates sharpened.

I am a patient person but I also understood that not everybody has to like me so this is why I didn't see some girls the second time. Yes, I will try to ''venture out'' and see what happens . I never tried iceskating but I would like to try it one day .

Re: Quirky, friendly girl searching for nice people in ZH

Hi there, I just moved here from LA almost 4 months ago and I just got married myself. Must be something in the water. I really enjoyed reading your post. It is crazy to see how much I have found to do in this city. Lots of hiking, I walk everywhere and even though my German is 'coming along', I pretty much talk to anybody. Everyone I meet seems very friendly and I think my German would get better if people would stop trying to practice their English on me. Other than that, I love it. I will hopefully begin classes for my German next week and join a gym as well. My husband and I own a bar/lounge in Albisriederplatz but I need to get away from him and his friends and start doing things on my own, meet people, etc. Which is the reason why I joined this group yesterday!!!!
Best of luck!!!!! And enjoy the snow tomorrow. :-)
Christian

This wednesday night. I will go to heuried with a few friends to teach them how to skate.
http://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/content/.../programm.html

(sorry in german),

1800-2200, with a bar serving warm alcohol drinks and the such. From past experience the skill levels are none-to adept. Mostly a chance for people to get out and meet others in a fun setting.

Heuried the 14/9 tram stop just before triemli. And the rink is about 50 meters off birmensdorferstrasse: Wasserschöpfi 71

Re: Quirky, friendly girl searching for nice people in ZH

Hi everyone!
I've enjoyed this thread! So I have an idea:I'm ex-professional figure skater, I started to skate when I was 5 and I gave it up when I was 16. now I am 24.
So, I offer all of you to go skating together. I could teach you skating
I am waiting for nice and friendly people replies and offers about it!
