Single for a year now - close to giving up!
Dude i give u a simple formula of dating in Switzerland.

Man (handsome, job, living alone) = cute swiss girl
Man (average, job, living alone) = average swiss girl
Man (handsome, jobless) = average swiss girl
Man (fat, ugly, job) = below average swiss girl
Man (fat, ugly, jobless) = buy your ticket and go home

Just curious.
Which kinds of men date non-swiss girls?

You expect ladies to make the first move and approach some fairly desperate sounding foreigner on the Internet?! Dream on.

Your profile says you work in PR - are you always that bad at advertising? You need to sell yourself here a bit better!

Why should the EF chicks PM you?
Well said @Treverus.

IMO, any man who expects the woman to make the first move deserves to be single for life. Seriously.

This is one of those bastions in life that need maintaining...

This thread is useless without:

a) a picture of the OP
b) pictures of the Swiss girls who have shunned his desperation...I mean charm.

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

What you need is a good wingman, you can achieve anything with one of those
A good wingman will
1) Talk up his man, highlighting all his achievements and finer attributes
2) Distract the ugly manager that all good looking girls seem to have, even go so far as to take one for the team
3) A good wingman will always know the places to go
4) An experienced wingman will control the alcohol intake and is a able to tread that fine line between happy loose buzz and just being silly, that is one of his finer arts
5) Having said that, a good wingman will know the exact time to bring out the tequila shots when he senses things are about to get serious and they will appear like magic for the group without discussion or prompting (a good wingman is always,or appears to be, flush with cash)
6) A wingman will be able to tell his man within 5 minutes if he is wasting his time with a girl and its time to move on
7)A good wingman understands that it is all a numbers game, increase the contacts, increase the numbers, increase the odds
8) A good wingman is so confident with the ladies, can get one any time, and will never use his special powers to move on a girl his friend is interested in.
9) Rule number 8 is made null and void if the wingman knows that that girl is the one for him, then forget it, you are going home alone my friend

So get ye a wingman and turn your life around

....... 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 you're judging people by their nationalities, you're probably not mature enough for a relationship, methinks

Two useful tips:

1) Floss your teeth
2) Don't ask for anal on the first date

Go to the French part, I got asked "Avant ou derrière?"on a second RDV.

'Avant' means 'before' - before what?

From the excellent urban dictionary:

safety word: a word used in conjunction with s&m, consensual torture, bondage, etc - so that when you say "no" or "stop" in the heat of the moment, the other person can disregard it - the safety word is the serious-i-mean-it-now time-to-stop word. usually something ridiculus like Alabama.

"Why did Jesus die on the cross? Because he forgot his safety word."

I didn't know either...

wow, just wow. There's definitely a better thread for this one

And from what experience I've gathered, telling a man you enjoy sex, especially spontaneous, rolling on the floor uninhibitedly, full of love and joy sex, will certainly "raise" their attention. Just be choosy who you say this to.

Come on, seriously, you don't think that people can express preferances in the nationalities of the people that they date and be mature?
