Hi all, I am looking for a reputable dating website (not an app). The websites that have been recommended to me are in German, Italian or French however I need one that is in English. I have tried hinge, bumble and tinder and they're not suitable as the guys aren't looking for anything serious. Can anyone help please? Thank you in advance
I think you mean "the guys that I am attracted to aren't looking for anything serious". I am using the app you mentioned for years and I am looking for (very)serious relationship but I barely had any real match here.

If you live on the French part of CH, you can also try meetic or adopteunmec.com, both are French website but they cover the Romandy and I think both are available in English

Are you tall dark and handsome?

I met my wife on match.com and although definitely tall and dark wouldn't describe myself as particularly handsome.
I wouldn't describe myself as such, but the women I end up with may choose to disagree.

I've never figured that bit out, but who the hell understands women.

Are you from the Middle Ages?

Tinder is 90% for casual sex. There are other sites that are directed at more serious people.

Sweetie, the use of "partner" has no sexual preference connotations. At least, not for me.

My ex housemate met his wife at a church get-together.

Meanwhile, I still have some "interesting" songs on tape that we concocted when she was only the weird neighbor.

"Partner" for me means no legal connotations.

Re: Dating Websites

I just want to give an insight to 'why women look for the 185+cm guys' ...

Lot of women are 170+ so let's say if she's around 175cm and the guy is the same hight , often it feels a bit awkward. For the simple reason how you see those guys say "i'm 175, 70kg" and most women are 55kg to 65kg ).
so, it all depends on the corpulence but for some girls out there it's like "oh he's my hight and weight ,he's so light I can eat him for breakfast"

Re: Dating Websites

I’m old school . I don’t need an app to talk to a women. If you like tinder/badoo/etc go for it.

If Middle Ages mean for you like the things in a real instead of virtual, then I am middle age.

Zuppa !

We are the opposite. I'm 30cm taller and 30kg heavier.

I'm 174, most of my girlfriends were taller, including my late wife (177).

Current wife is 56kg/165.

My younger daughter is also 174, (as well as my wife's daughter), the other 169.

Stepsons are 187/195.
