Zurich, hoping for occasional human contact

Perhaps by the lake, perhaps once or twice a week, second half of July and first ten days of August.

Would help me maintain my sanity -- will be in Zurich without my family -- otherwise I will feel strange . Even a few minutes would be helpful.

Canadian middle aged male, some French and German, but a lazy brain that would feel more comfortable speaking in English.

Thank you

Hey there! I was about to write that I'd be happy to meet you, but then I realized that by those exact dates I'm on vacations :|

Still, if you want to meet some day, feel free to drop me a PM! I live in Dübendorf, but work in Zürich, so I'm usually in one of those two cities.

Re: Zurich, hoping for occasional human contact

I guess girls have it easier to meet up people (sexism included)

No seriously. Get yourself a hobby. Swimming? Running? Or slightly less sportive competive beer drinking? Just go out and talk to people.. we dont bite (usually.. unless you drop into aresid)

Worst case become a Uber driver :-/ (thats a joke for the fellow Swiss here..)

Re: Zurich, hoping for occasional human contact

Thursday evenings (or other days but mostly Thursdays) here : https://www.im-viadukt.ch/en/marktha...cheese-centre/

Come by. Drink. Eat. Make new friends.

EDIT: Everyone is welcome. We don't judge. Unless you diss the cheese or the beer.

Hmmmm, so now I realise I must know you in real life. Must make a note not to groan you!

And actually Wednesday and Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons tends to be busier than Thursdays these days.

Not just Brits at my little beer bar, lots of nationalities including very thirsty and friendly locals.

This sounds amazing! So are you the owner of the place? Will I recognize you to say hello?

Yes, and maybe (I don't always look as good as my avatar). But if I'm not there I'm sure one of my staff will look after you well.

Re: Zurich, hoping for occasional human contact

I am down.

But will need to take a train up, I guess

Any news? OP - lake? Do you happen to own a stand up paddle board, by any chance? Or, we can play chess, too.
