hi beautiful people

to be completely honest with evryone i have no idea if this is in fact the right area to post my introduction, it was titled introduction forum so i am here introducing myself so if this is the wrong place please except my apologies for my ignorance. my name is Hi-col that is not how you spell it but it is how its said. I am relatively new here in switzerland and in normal circumstances avoid the computer as much as posible however due to my inhability in speaking the foreign language i am watching my social life dwindle before my very eyes, so this is my last resort in hopes of making friends that i can understand and make my stay here more entertaining. I am a 29 year old personal trainer from Ottawa Canada, i jog regularly and work out just as much, I am currently working on a business but looking for a part time job for entertainment money, I will be attending a school called Migros to help me learn french to start.

basically i am looking for friends, so if anyone out there wants to be my friend please dont be shy to respond i am a relatively easy going person.

your all the best and hope to talk to someone soon

Re: hi beautiful people

Hello and welcome to the Forum Yes, you posted in the right area!

Have a look on my signature for the social events calendar. I know Lausanne has quite a thriving scene. Good luck with your school.

Re: hi beautiful people

Hi Hi-col,
Welcome!
Same inability to speak French too!
Have yet to take up any French speaking lessons as I needed to ensure son adjusts to new school first before I sort myself out.

I'd like to be friends.
I'm currently staying in Divonne-les-Bains.
How long? Have to ask my husband

Cheers/Rona

Re: hi beautiful people

You're from Ottawa and you don't speak French!

Tsk Tsk.

Welcome to the forum. The social events should fix your current state.

Re: hi beautiful people

Hello and welcome
I am not from your area, but the title of your introduction reminded me of a dear friend He was a Pakistani who came to Europe for studies, and enjoyed it greatly, despite cultural shock. I remember him talking about westerners as "beautiful people", saying, "I can sit on a bench for hours and hours watching beautiful people". Only after a couple of months I realized that he actually meant women, as he suddenly was exposed to so much uncovered beauty

Welcome again and thanks for bringing me nice memories

Hi-Col I wonder what a 29 old old (young!!!) personal trainer is doing wrong if she doesn't find friends. If I was anywhere your age and your place, I would be your friend tomorrow. Anyway, welcome to the forum, a place full of nice, funny and even crazy people where you're soon going to make friends.
