How to find true love in Switzerland
Go digital. People in their 40s and 50s can now access online dating sites to meet their perfect match.
Volunteer. Lesley said ‘Whether it’s cultural events or social work, there are plenty of volunteering opportunities in Switzerland. It’s also a great way to use your languages, and English is very much in demand.’
Think outside the box. Lesley revealed that those who have done something creative ended up finding their partners. She shared her own experience as an example: ‘In my case, I met my husband on a trip in the desert which is something I would never normally consider doing.’
Friends first. Despite the jump in social dating sites, Lesley stressed the importance of gaining friends first. She added ‘Sometimes I come across people who’ve met someone online and liked them — but because they know they wouldn’t want to spend the rest of their lives with that person, they never see him or her again. This is a tremendous shame as there could be a friendship there.’
