My friends all told me, “Oh, what a nice man you have! People will not think that this man is “extraordinary”.
On the other hand, if a man in Germany does not help and the woman must do all the work by herself, the people will think that this is not a good man. Everyone is seen as an individual who can take care of himself.
Waiting for him to talk to you first may not be the best idea as he may not be that open to strangers. When I lived with my German housemate, he told me how he did not like it when I did not open the window to “let the air out”. He found it strange that I said “I don’t know” or “maybe” which basically meant “no” for me. Germans are direct and they expect you to be the same. ) When you look around in Germany, you can see girls wear what they want to wear regardless of their body size. German guys care about their appearance: they dress properly when they go out; they like wearing shirts; they make sure their hair looks good; they do not go out with shorts and slippers, even just for a trip to the supermarkets outside.
Guys in Asia want to be seen as older and more mature. As mentioned before, the genders are pretty equal in Germany.
However, it is still common for the men to pay the bill on a date. If the men are already working, they will probably pay the bill.
And when I visited Hong Kong and met my friends again, I was shocked that I was the only one who arrived on time. They will open themselves up and have a meaningful conversation with you rather than staying at a superficial level. Comparing to Americans who like to sugar-coat their words, Germans say what they really think.
So, if you see a German guy who is interesting to you, be proactive and try to initiate a conversation with him. If they do not like something, they will let you know it. If you date a German guy, he will not find it attractive if you try to hide your “weakness”. Be confident of yourself and that makes you more attractive.
Looking for a German guy from your friend circle (the traditional way) is still the best way where you have a higher chance to find a serious relationship, in my opinion.
However, I do know people found their right matches online and got married eventually.
He was upset to hear this as he didn’t want to look old.
Actually, the girl said that because she thought it was a compliment.
Dating culture can be different depending on the countries.
If you are single and looking for a date in Germany, what should you expect?
For example, if we have a meeting with 10 friends, we can expect to wait for 30 minutes until everyone is there.
