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.It is not a question of being stingy, however; it is about equality.Speaking to The Local, Trea Tijmens, owner of dating, matchmaking and date coaching service Success Match, says it takes effort to meet the Swiss – and even longer to engage in a trusting relationship.“If love doesn’t happen instantly, we are disappointed and are out of there,” the dating expert says, emphasizing that investing time pays dividends.“I advise men to pay on a first date,” says ‘flirt coach’ Thomas Peter, who runs how-to courses in flirting in Zurich or by telephone or email.“Later on couples usually want to split the costs – especially older couples," he says, adding that surprisingly "Among young people there is still a tendency for girls to expect their date to pay.” Blending commitment and independence is expected…You need to make more effort than you think With the rise of dating apps like Tinder and Grindr, many of us expect instant hook-ups.But this ‘no effort’ mentality is a mistake when it comes to dating the Swiss.
