Is this...for real?

So,I am 26,from Romania(with Serbian parents) and my girlfriend is from Romania too but lives in Switzerland for 5 years.We spent many holidays together including this Christmass and New Year.I live in Romania but I and especially her visit each other very often.
Now,she suggested me to move and make some "real money"in Switzerland as I already finished University+ masters and me being a Civil Engineer I thought this will be a piece of cake,it wasn't.Apparently I have to finish an University in Switzerland to get my working permit and actually working on my domain and not some minimal wage job.Besides the fact that I have to spent money on the University I also found out that I do not get a place to live,I have to pay my own rent...Ok,this wasn't all upseting,I understood that Switzerland doesn't take anybody but then I found out that some people get those things for free while not even being European.I was "What the !?".My girlfriend told me that if you are a "refugee"(yeah,with "" because she also told me that most of them aren't)you get free housing,free education,free food and some money + a working permit(not a B one but a good enough one) and I am furious of this.I looked into it and it seems quite true,the Swiss government care more for some people,that may hate them and are unable to integrate in this country, than me,an East qualified European who can speak both french and English and who will actually integrate in Swiss society faster and better than some far away foreigners.
She told me that the Swiss government is actually very left leaning and will actually discriminate you for being White or worse,Slavic.I knew Switzerland was a socialist country with though laws but to go that far?
Anyway,I had a pretty bad fight with her hence I will not spent my money and time to get something that some people get it for free and abuse it,she told me that it will all be worth it but I am not that kind of guy that supports injustice.
Now,I want you to tell me how true this all is because it seems really fking true.

Re: Is this...for real?

My boyfriend told me that Cher once sang about gypsies, tramps and thieves and one gypsy, who may have possibly been a refugee from Romania, got her pregnant.

Terrible story but a great song.

PS: Moral of the story: never trust gypsies, men or white people.

Re: Is this...for real?

Well, maybe you could get your academic credentials recognized in some other way?
At least in theory it should be possible, especially if you have already obtained all the required credentials in your country.
Procedure:

I've heard that for an architect, despite having foreign non-EU education/degree formally recognized in Switzerland, it is still very hard to find any job in their profession in Switzerland.

As to your comments - you might still want to teach your kids your mother tongue just in case situation here degrades to the levels of French banlieues :-)

If this is what your girlfriend told you, I’d think seriously about whether she meant it or told you such a load of negative and made up bollox to actually put you off. Maybe it’s a round-about way of giving you the elbow, flower.

Re: Is this...for real?

Perhaps better to educate yourself and her, especially given your supposed interest in your profile.

https://www.sem.admin.ch/sem/en/home...r_schweiz.html

https://www.sem.admin.ch/sem/en/home...orlaeufig.html

https://www.sem.admin.ch/sem/en/home...lsuchende.html

https://www.sem.admin.ch/sem/en/home...duerftige.html

Then again, given your stated interest, Switzerland will definitely be better without you. Please ignore all of the above and stay in Romania. I know EF will certainly be better without you.

Re: Is this...for real?

Double accounts are not allowed and you've been banned once already. Take advantage that it's the holidays as the mods are on (probably) on vacation to get out all you vitriol before they come back and ban you again.

Re: Is this...for real?

I think this must be a typo.

If I rearrange the letters of "theuglyrage" I get "The Regal Guy".

("Ye Large Thug" is another possibility)
