According to a feature in the NZZ print version yesterday, 71.5% of Swiss said that going out is a good way to meet a new partner.
I am waiting for the correction in next Sunday's paper that it's really 7.15% who think like this.
Come on! Have you ever tried to strike up a conversation while out socializing here??? Being sent to Switzerland is the same as being sent to Coventry...(!)
There are laws against Swiss people talking to one another unless they've been formally introduced, know what the other works at and earns, and their parents have met.
A special licence is also needed for inter-cantonal relationships.
