Swiss women typically expect men to make the first move and starting a conversation is reportedly no easy task, which can make Swiss women appear distant at first.
Sharing costs on a date is sometimes expected, although it doesn't meant that Swiss men won't pay for at least the first date.
Letting a date pay is not necessarily seen as a break in chilvary, but rather as a sign of respect and equality.
Still, Swiss people have their own style and manners.
They may not be known as the most romantic nation, but according to reports the Swiss are the best travel companions.
Acquaintances, however, will go in for a cheek kiss – typically three kisses.
If you're introduced by name, it is the norm to use their name in your greeting and farewell.
Swiss women are relatively independent their lives and daily tasks and weeks might pass between dates, although this shouldn't been taken as a sign of disinterest.
Women are getting more involved in business and public life in Switzerland, though the banking and finance industries continue to be dominated by men.
While online dating is present in Switzerland, it's not perhaps as widely talked about as in some other countries and not necessarily considered a serious way to form relationships.
This means meeting Swiss women and men at bars or through friends is still prevalent in the Swiss dating scene.
In this way, the Swiss are much more comfortable going for a walk or doing group activities before landing themself on an official 'date'.
