But I digress, the point is that in Switzerland it’s much more common to just hang out with someone. You might meet up in groups of friends, go for walks, or have a coffee.The important thing is spending time together as opposed to going on dates together.Being introduced to someone’s friends is therefore seen as normal, not as “he likes me because I get to meet them.”Now, I haven’t dated any Swiss men myself, but from what I hear it tends to be similar to the rest of Europe – you hang out for a few weeks and if you start having sex you become a couple.It doesn’t mean you are madly in love or intend to marry, it means you are testing the waters.Maybe you were swept off your feet during a visit to the Alps, where you met a Swiss man.It’s after all quite romantic with mountain tops, snow and mulled wine.The flakiness of America is far from the Swiss lifestyle.
Or maybe you’ve met a Swiss guy who’s come to America. America has a strong tradition when it comes to dating.In America it’s common for guys to offer to pay for dates. For politeness sake you should always offer to pay your share.The Swiss men you meet might not at first come across as very open. If you become someone’s friend, it truly means you are their friend.If on the other hand, it started with meeting in a club and going home together, that does not mean you are exclusive. The Swiss are, after all, the ones who are famous for making watches. That means most of them take punctuality pretty seriously.If you start hanging out after that you might be a few weeks later though. So if you show up late, the guy you are dating will likely be offended.
I was taught these by my grandparents who spent a lot of time in France. Of course, as with anything else it’s individual though.
