A lot of people work and travel quite a bit and do not have time or energy to go to places where they could potentially meet a life partner.
I noticed this when I worked as a headhunter in Geneva and launched a company called successmatch, provides personalized matchmaking services for busy English speaking professionals. Every thing is small scale, no major traffic, quite safe. There are so many things to do here that you will never be bored.
Especially if you like sports, the facilities here are wonderful.
