That's why I prefer to choose them like my motorcycles:

Two big jugs, preferably from northern Italy, slim, temperamental, a good ride, fast but not easy, only drinks heavily on occasion, smoking is ok but not too much, screams when you twist the throttle at full whack...

Good to know that someone knows the difference between smart and intelligent.

So what is the difference between smart and intelligent.

They both just sound like arrogant and disillusioned to me

I am what you are looking for... until the ''single'' part.

Keep searching!
Same here - hmmm no- I WAS - when I met my British OH 41 years ago.

Now, just get yourself a General Train Abonnement - and just go a-travelling. Great place to meet people. We met at Clapham Junction, on a train (well I was on the wrong one). Worked a treat.

No: Tough (Spanish: duro) and a lot of endurance...

I don't care if they are "useless on the street"... not my line of business.

?

We are having a thread on "I like my women the way I like my cars/bikes".

What car or bike do you have? Do you like your women the way you like your GA?

alright, i'ma get straight to the point:

I'm tired of typical Swiss girls cuz the majority just isn't fun or too stuck up...I admit that my expectations/standards are really really high but I don't see any reason why I should ask for less. I have lots of fun friends but just friends, not more...

Is it too much to ask for a girl who takes care of herself and her body, is smart & intelligent (not the same thing), doesn't smoke, not a heavy drinker, active, speaks more than 1 language, with no family issues...?!

I know that these kinda women exist here, so if you do know where to meet 'em let me know right away.

If you're a girl who falls into this category, here's the 411 on me:

I'm a Swiss guy (on paper) but with an international background, lived in Toronto 10 years ago, 29 y.o., with a professional background in marketing and sports (medicine) / consumer merchandise, love basketball/swimming/exploring new activities, love eating, athletic caramel-skinned body, 5'9" (1.78m) tall, love languages and learning about other cultures although i'm not a nerd/geek, my style is sporty casual (GQ x Abercrombie x Kobe Bryant), love reading inspiring books by entrepreneurs to expand my horizon
If you got girl problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but being short ain't one, 5'9" might have cut the rug back in the old days dude but you got to be 6 foot plus these days to impress the new generation of über girls. Height is probably the number one factor I've been able to define that girls in the majority are looking for.

I understand this might be difficult for you to change, instead how about improving your personality? Might be easier.

Re: Where are the decent/smart/fun/single girls in this country?

well this is how this plays over here

on the rest of the world, if you for example are a 7 on a scale from 1 to 10, you maybe think you could get an 8 but and aim for a 9. At the end after many failed attempts you would end with a 7 or maybe a 6 if you are desperate, and would get some 5s while you try to get the righ one, let's say you wouldn't even touch anything under a 5.

But here is Switzerland, and those women here are only interested on foreigners ( or half foreigners ) if you exceed the expectations they could have for a local guy from their village of origin.

So here all 7s and 6s that were interested in foreigners went and imported 8s and 9s ( usually muscled boys 5 years younger than them ).

So for you this plays more or less like this.

If you are a 7 on a scale from 1 to 10, you maybe think you could get an 6 but and aim for a 7. At the end after many failed attempts you would end with a 5 or maybe a 4 if you are desperate, but would get some 3s while you try to get the right one, let's say you wouldn't even touch anything under a 3.

Hope this helps.

Yes, I notice tall men first, especially since I am tall myself. But at the end of the evening, it's usually a shorter guy who made me laugh more than the tall guy who was fighting off girls with a stick, so he probably has a very good chance despite his height. If he has a handsome face too, well... The thing is, we are often walking around with these shopping lists in our head and completely ignore the most important item - will they make you happy and feel safe and loved? Just because your mates keep chanting "no fatties" on nights out or your girlfriends repeat the "six foot or bust" mantra, it doesn't mean you have to listen. They probably don't want you to be happily coupled up at home, I mean, who will they go drinking and hunting with then?

Mates drinking, hunting night with the motto "no fatties" sounds very boring, childish, better left in the teenage years.

The proper game-night motto with the boys and booze is along the lines of a "save the whales" competition.
