German women dating tips
After talking last week to a German about their lack of dryers in the country (seriously people, one of the best inventions! In the USA, it is actually against the law to do that because it could cause discrimination. In the USA, we celebrate it on the morning of the 25th (the anticipation! Those displays are similar to July 4th ones in the USA. Then again, I can’t really judge because I make similar English mistakes writing in German ;) 10.
), I remembered that I hadn’t published one of my lists on German/American differences. Enjoy, and as always, let me know what you’d add to this list! I have a totally different resume for Germany than for the USA because of all the differences. You don’t really find fireworks in the USA for the new year. If a movie is in a different language in Germany, they will dub the movie instead of adding subtitles. To go along with #9, Germans have some of the best English I’ve ever heard or read. Germans are inquisitive and blunt about the United States (particularly politics) but they aren’t rude. They tend to go for a handshake or the kisses on the cheek (Germans do two kisses, one on each side). To go along with #19, Germans can’t handle my level of enthusiasm and excitement.
Bigger cities like Frankfurt, Berlin, and Munich tend to be extremely friendly while smaller cities are less so.
Women’s Rights Christina says: Women are seen as fully equal here and have the same rights as men.
German kids are given bikes in which they push themselves along with their feet. In contrast, kids in the USA start by having training wheels. If Germans get into relationships, it goes from 0 to 100 in like a few weeks. I mean, all my German friends in relationships will probably be in the relationship for years and years and years. Which actually makes me wonder how Germans ever form relationships! I used to babysit for a German/American family in Heidelberg.
My future children will most definitely have a German bike for the selfish purpose of watching them look absolutely adorable. It is definitely more accepted to have kids out-of-wedlock so couples might have a child or two and then get married. The wife was American and one day she asked me if I was seeing anyone.
Like a “get me on a plane because I want to move back to Germany ASAP” kind of missing it. Germans think it is ridiculous how much Americans sue.
However, the USA has been quite controversial here due to things such as the NSA, Obama, and the wars in the Middle East. Many Germans simply hold polar opposite views in regards to public policy decisions made in the USA, and that is the root cause of any potential slight made toward Americans.Unless you make a clear effort to stand out, you are more than likely to blend in here.Women-Specific Environments Christina says: No, there are no women-specific environments.Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but it still hard for me to ever think of purposely having a child before marriage. After answering “no” (cue the sympathy for my non-existent love life), I added, “because you know, German men never make moves!” And she was like, “I had to make the move on my German husband because it was so obvious he liked me but would never say anything.” I’ve had this confirmed by multiple Germans.
