What to expect when dating a german
That way, they’ll laugh if they find it funny, or just stare at you blankly if it’s not funny (because Germans won’t forcefully laugh at your jokes if they’re not funny just to be nice).Germans are very unromantic I know a German guy (and don’t ask how I know) who says that he’s a really nice guy because he’s always honest to every girl he meets.Germans have no sense of humour I find all my German friends to be very funny, but then again, I’m easily amused. Especially very serious people, because I find serious people especially funny in their need to be serious all the time. With that said, yes I do think Germans have a sense of humour.While their humour is more subtle, and not the sort of drunken debauchery (“Haha Tucker Max is the shit! ), they are definitely funny in their own way, and hearing a German joke is always a delight. Germans are very efficient and love making schedules When I first noticed my 26 year old roommate penciling in all his plans on his wall calendar and computer calendar, I was definitely pretty surprised. All Germans seem united in their hatred for the Deutsche Bahn, so just work that into your excuse, and your tardiness will be forgiven.Close friendships with Germans don’t usually happen overnight, but when they do form, I find it a lot more genuine (aka none of that “OMG your top looks so hot” when you know it makes you look frumpy bullshit). Germans love bread I’ve been told that I’ve never actually had bread until I came to Germany, because those sliced packages of bread we have in North America (you know, like Dempsters), isn’t actually bread, but toast (even when it’s not toasted).
Therefore, don’t feel too dejected if Germans aren’t rushing over to become instant besties with you.Of course, all of this rarely happens in Germany, and I have to admit – I still have more fingers than German friends in Mannheim and I’ve lived here for way more than a week. Germans are reserved Unlike home, where it’s common to become “instant best friends” with someone, Germans tend to need some time before they open up to you and include you in their “circle.” What I find surprising is how Germans always keep their doors closed in student residences, and despite studying and living in another city, a lot of them go home almost every weekend.But does this mean they’re “cold” just because they’re not as open as other countries? Some of my friends say that they know people who go home every weekend!“I grew up with five sisters” (or something like that), he said.“And I see how some guys treat them and it’s horrible. I never want to be like that, which is why I always want to treat girls with respect…because I’m such a nice guy. ” So you must be thinking, “aww this German guy must be a total romantic!
There, I made lots of German friends and had the time of my life partying with them almost every night.
