You guys really think that men can read women's body language and subtle signs. I always tell them that if they want me to get a hint, they had better have a loudhailer, a club, or a set of handcuffs.

I was being sarcastic *pout*

my bad, I'm horrrible at decoding internet sarcasm, withdrawn. Although the porno line should have given it away. Conversely, I don't know how to properly use that word.

I found in Canada, there is a high majority who almost always make the first move.
But we're in Switzerland, not a Country renowned for womens liberation and the such.

I find this extremely disillusioned. Is anyone perfect? If you find the perfect person, will they accept you if you're not perfect (because if you are perfect, you wouldn't have any problems finding the perfect mate).

Sure there's nothing wrong about persuing perfection or having high standards, but it kinda nullifies your deservced right to complain that you're not finding anyone after a year.
perfection to one is not to another. Why settle for less if you can have the one that is perfect....imagine you get married with a "less perfect" person. next day the woman of your dreams walks into your life....well to bad you are married......

(i realize and am aware that it can work in the other direction also...getting married to the then perfect person only to find out....

Sometimes those with the mental instability are the ones who will fit best. Sometimes all they need is the companionship of a caring open-minded person to give them the boost of self-esteem and acceptance which they require.
You'd be amazing at how a 'meh' can transform into a 'bombshell' once they overcome this.

Then I wonder why nobody has thought of going for the insecure, vulnerable, crazy girl before

Re: Single for a year now - close to giving up!

Been here 2 years, gave up on Swiss women after it was explained to me that asking a one to have dinner was the same as asking for sex??? How the heck are you supposed to get to know someone if you can't take them out somewhere? Besides, no nice Swiss girl would ever want to date an Ausländer!! Oh the shame of it!!

Re: Single for a year now - close to giving up!

Why is this obsession to date only one nationality (i.e. SWISS)
In a place like Zurich / geneva I am sure there is quite a diversity in terms of international people available.

Having said that, In my personal experience (during my single days), if you engaged a girl to get to know her home country / town correctly you more or less could score a next date

Well, if you must ask her if she wants to get something inside her, what do you expect.

....... You tried on the Swiss girls for a year?
You don't deserve a Swiss girl, you deserve a medal of honour
(.... or a German girl.... German girls are AWESOME)
If it makes you feel any better - the Swiss girls are no different with us Swiss guys ...

When I was younger (21, 22) I used to think that if I let a guy buy me a drink it was an obligation to put out.

/sigh

I was so gullible (easy) back then.

Re: Single for a year now - close to giving up!

Read a book, go for a walk, watch tv obssessively. Being single is so much fun. As soon as most people get into a relationship they start whinging about not having time any time on their own. Being single for a year is really not that horrible - sounds to me you are looking for an ego boost and not for a serious relationship.
