And I don't believe in playing with people's hearts, so if a guy asks me for lunch, I generally refuse, simply because I know I am not interested in anything serious, with lunch generally indicating serious intentions. Otherwise you'd ask for drinks after work or something similarly non-committal.
What? I have been accepting all those lunch invitations over the years, and never realising....... I thought the guys were just hungry. And it was lunchtime.

Is this a cultural difference that I have been missing in Switzerland?

Now how do we define an expensive date. As seen in the Big-Mac index, a Mcdonalds date could be considered expensive in Zurich :P

With a little spin that becomes-Robust male, not overly obsessed with looks or flash. Down-to-earth and looking for an honest, loving relationship.

The OP should go to the Street Parade, my only mistake 10 years ago was giving my phone no to the Swiss girl I met at the time.

Are you referring to copious amounts of alcohol until one starts getting the spins?

Yes, but with men it might be beer goggles that effects the outcome, I have generally found that the ladies insist on Dom.

If it takes 7 years and you don't contribute anything to the relationship, perhaps I would...not that I know about this particular case.

Sounds a bit like this:

But it doesn't just happen to men. I know of at least two examples of where a Swiss woman supported her partner through studies only to be dumped once they graduated.

I did not say she got her degree, I said I paid, she was was too lazy to finish. She actually started at 3 different universities but there was always something wrong with them!

6 years on she has not done a days workng & still wants to be given money.
