I cant believe youve sneaked these sms' off her phone and posted them publicly here. Don't move to CH. Big mistake as there is no future for you if you can't trust her.

And I kinda of hope she finds out!!!
she'll never find out... not unless he posts them on the internet...

Naughty stop winding the guy up or help him one of the two

I suggest not helping him as his should trust his misses. I wouldn't dream of snooping on someone's phone. What a way to start a relationship???!!!
its hardly the start its nearly a year now and like the lady below states i just wanted to no where i stand,if it was english it would be very easy for me but this makes its a bit difficult, really if you were in my position and had some doubts im sure you would want your mind put at rest either way!!

Re: any help appreciated!!!

I can understand your concern, Singy, having given up my house, my job and everything I valued for a woman who was busy shagging another chap in Switzerland while I was packing boxes in England, but this really isn't the way to handle the situation. Indeed, if Bella ever finds out what you've done - and there's enough information in your initial post to nail you good and proper - you're buggered.

If I were you, I'd ask the moderators really nicely to delete this thread, then set about planning a move to Switzerland independently. Get yourself set up with a job and a flat, make yourself a solid new life in Switzerland, then whatever happens with your relationship you'll be OK. Switzerland isn't Somalia, after all.

Good luck!

I'm too lazy too do them all for you, but I'll take the first. Swiss is a little rough, but it includes the words "horny game" (well, actually game then horny, but you know how adjective position gets messed up in these foreign languages).

The first part of the sentence says something about today at 8. So, put together, horny games today at 8. Sounds worrisome like that.

Gester looks a little like high German for sister, but I really hope that doesn't work in somehow!
Now please be careful before you cause even more damage!

That first sentence says, "I called you today at eight a.m., ha, and then I had to go playing soccer. It was great yesterday."

You may have looked up "geil" and found it translated as "horny." That was its meaning for about two centuries, but young people these days use it just like "hot" is used in English. "S'isch ä geils Konzert gsi" -- would you translate that as, "It was a horny concert"? I don't think so. It's slang, boy.

By the way, without going into details, the whole rest is pretty innocent too. There is mention of one little kiss while saing goodbye the evening before, and someone offered the gal the opportunity to spend the night at his / her place after a big event. That's all.

P.S.: Disclaimer: Of course, saying it's pretty innocent does not necessarily mean all is well, but there is no reason for reading anything suspect between the lines of those messages. Please don't blame me if the whole thing goes haywire all the same. I wish you all the best.

Re: any help appreciated!!!

There's some real personal stuff in there - noses, elbows, jaws (like I said personal).

Do any of her (SMS) friends use the EF?

Re: any help appreciated!!!

@Singy83

Dude, seriously, whilst I do have some sympathy for your situation, it definitely wasn't cool of you to (a) look at her private text messages in the first place and then (b) post them an Internet forum.

To me this shows you are also not to be trusted and, as has already been suggested on this thread, it's probably best you guys sort out whatever trust issues you have between the two of you before you move over.

I see from a later post you acknowledged the error of your ways for what you've done, so the best of luck with getting things sorted.

Re: any help appreciated!!!

As DB suggested, be your own person and things should turn out well no matter where you are and with whom you are.
I'd like to add though that Switzerland is tough unless you're living in an area where you can handle the language. If you do not speak the lingo you might find yourself being dependent on your girl-friend. No matter how much trust you both have, it could strain the relationship. I would suggest securing a job in Switzerland before making the move.

Posting another person's private info online is just awful. Do get it removed asap.

Re: any help appreciated!!!

In case it wasn't clear, I read most dialects of Swiss German rather easily. It took quite some effort to come up with the posted "translation" with enough basis in reality to amuse me. ;-)

As for more damage - the boy's a twat. He's breaking trust with his girlfriend to find out if he can trust her. If he doesn't have the cajones to take a risk for love, then he doesn't deserve her. Given that she's done the same... well, both of them should wait till they graduate high school before talking about moving abroad anyway.

Re: any help appreciated!!!

Singy! How dare you go through my phone and ask people to translate my messages!! Stop your packing as I no longer want you to move to Switzerland to be with me.

How very dare you
