Looking for portals engaged in online sex chatting
She may be right: Swiss government figures in 2015 revealed that 35 percent of marriages were between a Swiss and a foreigner.
The Swiss need plenty of encouragement Search dating on any Swiss expat forum, and you find a slew of women moaning that men don’t approach them.
Alice*, a French expat in Zurich, reveals that although her Swiss boyfriend paid on their first date, he expected costs to be split 50/50 after that.
Women should make themselves more approachable by, for example, smiling and saying ‘hello’. It doesn’t pay off to label yourself an ‘expat’ Think being an expat will make you sound exotic? There are around two million expats in Switzerland from all over the world, but the Swiss are on their home turf: they have friendships they established as children, making it hard for foreigners to build relationships with them.
She says: “Labelling yourself as an expat when you want to date locals is not always helpful.
Just say, you live here now.” Sharing the cost of a date is normal If elsewhere men pay on dates, this is not always the case in Switzerland.
Take German expat Lena*, a leggy blonde: she noticed that since moving to Zurich, she has not been hit on much in bars.
“I mainly get approached by Spanish guys,” she admits, adding that she thinks Swiss men must be too arrogant or too scared to speak to women.
