Looking for dating in english, on line dating?

Hello!
I moved to Zurich, I found the flat and got a life in Zurich.
Now, i want to find a date, but not speaking the local language makes it harder than ever.
I'm really sociable and good looking, this have never been a problem. But since I travel sometimes 3 weeks per month, getting involve in activities to meet people hasn't been an option. Plus I have this policy of not dating people from work.
So, this leave not that much options but meeting random people on the street??

Well, the point is, does anyone know a dating website in english?

english speaking dating sites

Bottom line is, involve yourself in activities outside your work and hopefully u'll meet someone!

A picture always helps...
hahaha ( in case you were wondering what that was)


There is a lot of latin people in switzerland, so meeting people isn't much of a problem

Comadre = your son/daughter godmother. But is used as a friendly term like buddy or mate...

I suspect after posting on here you might not actually need a dating site....
(Probably a vetting site)

Thank you!!
I got also some recomendations by by PM and I'll try in a few weeks, with a nice picture of course!
I'll post the results!

I'm not desperate yet to post a picture in a public forum.
