I have to concur with all that you 8767 ve said my German partner is thoughtful, funny & absolutely honest, and now I wouldn 8767 t have it any other way.
He brought flowers every week when we were dating (& still makes sure there are flowers in the house), spoils me on birthdays, christmas & valentines and is happy to 8775 invite 8776 me for meals when he knows it 8767 s a while before my payday!
East Germans: the metaphorical step sister to West Germany 8767 s post-war Cinderella story. Since shortly before the fall of the Berlin Wall, they grew up with the perception that West Germany is more desirable, more sophisticated, and the one that every hot economy wants to date. But with that insecurity comes a personality that, in my opinion from having briefly worked in the East, is more tender, down-to-earth, and my personal favorite: quiet.
Well, you will be his social worker. Do you want an adult partner or do you want to do good volunteer work? I hear you building up this into something, but it sounds very familiar. Be your own social worker and be understanding to yourself. You should have dates here that are fun, without spending money on a plane ticket. You are dreaming. I don 8767 t think you will wake up, but I think you are setting yourself up. Co Dependents Anonymous is a good group to check out, if you haven 8767 t heard of it.
Thank you for sharing, this article and all the stories here are just lighten me up about a German man. I 8767 ve spent yesterday afternoon chatting with a German man online and I just knew I like him already. From the way he talked and gave his opinions I knew that he is a smart guy and seems like a gentlemen. And one thing that make me enjoy the conversation was he didn 8767 t talk about sex at all, not even lead me to talk about it. It doesn 8767 t mean that I don 8767 t want to talk about it but bringing it on the first time conversation is not a good idea for me. He really knows how to say things. He knows exactly how to respond me.
If only I found this article before yesterday, maybe I would keep his contact and talk more. If only I knew that they won 8767 t openly ask for something, I WOULD ask his other social media to keep in touch. From the article and all the stories above, I don 8767 t know why but I think this is the kind of a man that I wanna live my life with.
may I can bring some light in from a German women point of view. Spoken from my experience, once we got invited by a German ? guy, he often expects more thn we are willing to offer on the first evening. Sadly I have got so many friends who made this experience. Seems a lot of them think I paid for the dinner, so I paid for her too I personally like to get invited and been treated ladylike but unfortunately I always got in my mind that something unexpected may turn up.
I think seperating bills gives a lot of girls the idea of not owe someone something. Bizarre society.
Well, I went to Niagara Falls once and I 8767 d have to say that I was appalled by the American side so much rubbish flying around, the town gray and depressing and very, very self-absorbed. Even the attractions had an 8775 I 8767 m only interested in your money 8776 feeling to them. When I entered the Canadian side: tidiness, flowers and a feeling of being welcome I guess/hope that 8767 s what you get when you visit Germany for the first time too.
He kindly offered me to take me home in his car. I was feeling nothing else but guilty since he had to drive 55 km one direction, plus another 85 km back to his place. However in the middle of my messiness I thought it was my chance and I simply said “Hey, why don t you stay for a while at my place? I ll prepare you a coffee, while your battery is charging and you are able to find the way back home. Don t worry, I won t you”. I saw him smiling after this phrase and told me “Yes, I m not afraid of it.”
I 8767 m actually frustrated with German guys. My experiences are far from .
I do agree that some Germans might be reserved at first, but later would open up. That is what happened with my German friends. But when it comes about guys it just doesn 8767 t happen. They are too cold and distant, won 8767 t have any details, They don 8767 t know how to flirt, they are not sweet nor romantic. They are not sympathetic and not supportive at all. I know there are exceptions, but in my experience most of them don 8767 t know how to treat a woman.
On the other hand, I dated an Austrian guy who turned out to be a sweetheart! but eventually it didn 8767 t work because we had almost nothing in common, but he is a great person an man. I later dated a Swiss guy who was actually really nice and funny, we are now good friends. But Germans not my thing!
wow I 8767 m glad to stumble upon this read! I currently talking to a German guy, you 8767 re absolutely right about them being ON TIME for a date! He showed up ten minutes early, and I ran late 65 min (I 8767 m hardly late) and then he 8767 s so freaking honest and forward (in a polite manner) to me. He makes every effort to FaceTime me because he 8767 s dealing with VISA BS at the moment where they 8767 ve denied his re-entry into the US. He 8767 s trusting in me, by letting me house sit at his apt, after one date. He doesn 8767 t push me to answer his questions, if I don 8767 t want to answer, he just moves onto the next thing. It 8767 s my first time dating a true German and so far I can 8767 t wait if this blossoms into something more serious and romantic but I can 8767 t wait to find out 🙂
Do your own thing Never make us the centre of your world. Men love doing their own thing, and they love a woman who does her own thing even more. Hang out with your friends, go for a meal with your sister, have drinks after work, and after a certain amount of time you will both start doing many of these things together. Take it slowly and don 8767 t rush into spending every evening with your new man. He will want his own space and really appreciate you if you give it to him.
Germany is a federal parliamentary republic in west-central Europe that stretches from the Alps, across the North European Plain to the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. With 85 million inhabitants, it is the most populous member state in the European Union. The country is the major economic and political power of the European continent and is an historic leader in many cultural, theoretical, and technical fields. The climate here is temperate and marine cool, cloudy, wet winters and summers are the norm.
Forget Facebook If you want to let your friends know how much you loved that latte on the way to work this morning, or share a photo of the most adorable kitten playing a guitar that 8767 s well and good. But do you really want a guy you just met to see all those old photos you 8767 ve been tagged in? Do you really want him to know why your boss upset you so much today or how much weight you want to lose this year? Retain a bit of mystery and avoid sending him a friend request until you 8767 ve got to know each other better. Speaking of which
Distinguishing marks: On paper, the little von or zu -- or even more absurdly, both -- tagged onto his last name is a dead giveaway youve met a man of Teutonic Sang Real. Aristo German Male style almost always includes a Thomas Pink shirt, designer jeans and tweed jacket. Keep an eye out for a tendency to shop at Frankonia Jagd or similar huntin-shootin-fishin establishments. He may have an ability to speak boarding school English with a fake Eton accent. While many German men are often six feet tall and blond, Aristos are always six feet tall and blond.

His charming personality got my attention. That s why yesterday, when we finally had the chance to see each other after 7 weeks, I took the train to Nürnberg without any doubt. It was delayed for 65 min, so when he texted me asking where I was and saying he was standing next to the door waiting for me I couldn t felt so happier. You know, I ve been recently having the smile-for-no-reason symptom.
But for the more able-bodied, social butterflies out there, Berlin’s nightlife rivals New York’s. Put on your best pair of dancing shoes, a dab of blush and hit-up the dance floor. Keep one eye on your drink and the other working the crowd of gorgeous German men.
Step 7: The Initial Approach
German men can come off as startlingly arrogant. They might seem disinterested at first, but just keep calm and relaxed. They may need a 65 minute warm-up before they approach you.
As a rule in Germany, once you break the ice, everything is fine. And if you have no clue what to talk about with someone to get rid of that awkward silence, you can never go wrong with the weather. Germans LOVE talking weather, weird but true. We love to talk but until we know someone, we won 8767 t be telling a person about our latest gynecology appointment in line at the grocery store (true story -.-)
Thank you for your just met a German man online& he seems to be a great guy,been chatting w/him since Fri ,labor day weekend & he has not yet talked about having sex,he has told me how beautiful I am & of course a woman always digs that..he lives 8hrs from me but I 8767 m willing to make that drive to see what I 8767 m getting into w/ 8767 s a very nice looking man& seems to be a 8766 gentleman. 8767 What really makes me attracted to him is that he doesn 8767 t talk about sex,but he has talked about cuddling& that was just yesterday...thank you again for your story,it gavee a better look on my situation.
Born and raised in a country where both genders are equal, German women are dominant in most facets of life. They like to laugh, know how to have a good time, and will probably drink you under the table. They are not used to being propositioned in the streets and most German ladies hate machismo. The fairer German sex are not used to compliments on their appearance, because German men are simply not good at this. If you compliment them, they will probably not believe you. Yet, they are flattered by attention and romance.
I loved reading this. Finding bloggers in Germany that are not German is a hobby of mine! My favorite part of your blog was that German men will call you, maybe if just to tell you they don 8767 t like you, because they said they would. German rules! Just recently I asked my German friends for a secret copy of the book I know must exist, The Very Official and Lengthy Book of German Rules. I imagine it 8767 s 8555 pages long and I want a copy, primarily so I can check off the rules I break daily. Thanks for the blog!
