Any guys who relocated here "for love"?

Hi all,
I am currently looking for interview subjects who relocated to Switzerland to be with a significant other. It is for a nationally synidicated English-language radio program. The topical subject being "relocating for love" (will be broadcast on Valentine's Day).

If you know anyone - specifically at this time looking for MEN, or those in a gay/lesbian/queer relationship - who relocated here for this reason (and who would be comfortable being interviewed), please have them email- email removed. The incentive would be to share their story, and potentially hear themselves on the radio.

Also, we are looking for non-traditional couplings if possible (mixed age, race, background).
Vielen danke

Re: Any guys who relocated here "for love"?

you've aroused me. Or rather my suspicions....
Why use a different email address to register to the one inviting emails (that I've removed)? It is also impossible to verify that you are what you're saying.....

You should get hold of Chiwi.....he relocated from Wellington, New Zealand to Luzern, Switzerland to be with his girl. They did the long distance for a very long time.

Re: Any guys who relocated here "for love"?

Thanks Hannah,
I'll see if I can track down Chiwi.
Lob Rockster; as a trusting sort, I wouldn't even imagine this would arouse suspicions.... Anyhoo, it is for a grassroots radio show (http://pacificanetwork.org/radio/content/view/249/76/) broadscast from the West Coast of the USA, then picked up by various other broadcasting affiliates. A member of the station who used to live in Zurich (transplanted herself to the US, "for love") contacted LoRa in Zurich (http://pacificanetwork.org/radio/content/view/249/76/) to help produce a number of shows with Swiss/Zurich-based content/issues.
The interviewees have mostly been found though; thnx to those who sent me pms. ciao

Re: Any guys who relocated here "for love"?

So you still feel the need to share it with a wider audience ? It reminds me of those couples who appear in "Hello" magazine smarming about how wonderful their relationship is, and then split up a few weeks later.

Funny that! haha
Not really a wider audience, some people like to talk about it, some couples split up, say people say it is crazy, well we are one couple that it worked for and still running after 8 years... what's the prob? If things interest me, I ask for advice, if others seek advice or info, I offer what I can... for those that don't like to hear about others lives, well, I could be placed in that category as well.
They asked the question, I offered a reply. life goes on.

Re: Any guys who relocated here "for love"?

Me!

I met my Swiss wife on a weekend trip to Paris 7 years ago. For a long time it was weekends in CH or UK. When we decided to hitch niether of us wanted to relocate so we fliped a coin... I lost but what a place to live . I miss the Uk a lot but its just a short plane ride away and it only takes a few days before I realise what a total dump the UK is now.

Re: Any guys who relocated here "for love"?

hey, i'm not a guy, but i recently moved here because of LOVE...
Not really sure if it was the best idea... we share different humour, age, opinions-basically if I didn't love him, i could really hate him-ya know!


so, keep in touch... i'm a Swiss virgin and may need some guidance.
ciao

Re: Any guys who relocated here "for love"?

I relocated to Switzerland because of love 35 years ago. Took me many years to get accustomed to the Swiss way of life but I have succeeded. It is great to use a forum like this to contact others. My advice: Learn at least one of the three official languages and try to have Swiss friends.
