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

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

What kind of gal exists here...One that would introduce herself by brands of clothes she wears?

Good luck.

Smart girls like geeks, by the way. Just sayin'

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

Awww, this gave me such a laugh....

If I wasn't old, alcoholic and married then obviously I'd be the one.
Such a long list of requirements - there is clearly nobody to match that.

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

Why don't you work on parlaying some (or one!) of those friends into something more? Or maybe ask them what you are doing wrong. They will be the best ones to give you the doG's honest truth about why the girls you're interested in aren't interested in you.

And just get out there! You'll meet the right someone eventually.

Quite a lot of boxes to be ticked there and am wondering if such a woman exists anywhere, let alone Switzerland?

Have you seen this thread at all? Why is it so hard to find a date in Zurich?! (hope my friends wont kill me)

Hehe! Dude, this thread is useless without pictures! (Just kidding!).

On a serious note, good luck with your quest!

Well if 411 means what I think it does, aren't you going to have a bit of trouble bringing 'her' back with 2 other flatmates in a 4.5 room apartment (with high ceilings)?

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

I also feel something like this. Sometimes I think there is something wrong with me, but everybody could abbuse the advantages of being single. I am a female, and I have many (men) friends, maybe some of them feels something about me, but honestly: the most important I feel great myself if I am with them. Maybe the problem is, that I don't feel the same...Actually the last post's comics says everything...

But can she cook beans?

Favorite Steinbeck quote
Quote:
A funny thing. Every little Indian in Mexico could cook beans properly and no one up here except Alice—just enough juice, just the right flavor of the bean without another flavor mixed up with it. Here they put tomatoes and chili and garlic and such things in the beans, and a bean should be cooked for itself, with itself, alone. Juan chuckled. "Because she can cook beans", he said to himself.
