    Dear Blizzy,

    I cannot speak for all the other German men out there, but I can assure you that I can be very romantic.
    But it is, sadly enough, very true that we German guys are not the most accomplished men in the world when it comes to showing that.
    My theory is that we learn from a very early age that showing romantic interest in a girl is not a good thing to do, i.e. it is actively discouraged by german women. Flirting is defintely not our national pastime :).
    So be patient with us, we are simply untrained.
    And it is true, if we give compliments, we really, really mean it. That´s because we are afraid we might be subjected to a polygraph test afterwards - which might give you a hint at how german women react to compliments (not all of them, of course).
