How to treat a German woman the right way...

Posted in Germany forum

To me that's a really difficult question! It's always a bit harder to date somebody of another culture, but with German girls I just don't get along!
I know the 'traditional' dating rules, for example the guy has to pay everything - but in Germany I heard that some girls get offended by this because their independence is questioned.
Whatever you do, you do it wrong!

    Hi Fernando! Dating a German woman is just like dating any other woman, you either impress her or you don't ;o)

    Most women won't get offended if you pay the bill (though they don't expect you to do so). If they want to split bills, they'll just tell you. If you really meet a German woman that gets offended by your offer, you might want to ask yourself whether she isn't a little over-reactive in the first place ... ;o)

    Another tip: Most German women are not very used to compliments (for example on how they look) - as German men suck at this! If you compliment them, they will probably not believe you - but enjoy it anyways!

    hey Dora, thanks for your nice reply.

    "Most German women are not very used to compliments"
    Now that's really funny! What are the German guys doing out there?! :D I think making compliments is part of dating - and I hope the girls I went out with believed me when making compliments!

    Well Fernando, let's be honest: Do you really tell the truth in all compliments? ;o) But as I said, even if you exaggerate a bit most German women will like your compliments anyways (.. and who would believe a man in the first case?).

    Well Dora, this depends mostly on the girls ;)
    Of course sometimes you make a compliment and don't mean it a 100%...but it's kind of a way to get a girl to like you...should I feel bad about that? :D

    I really feel that they have great potential emotions....but mostly are just potential.
    and all I can say they need real and pure emotions to get them out of the tough daily life ,not just by sweet words but they are really practical...........even in love.
    and I like that in them

    Hey Julia, I'm really not THAT bad! :P
    You can't deny that most of you girls like all the compliments and would be a bit offended if a man wouldn't make any on the first dates...

    Ahh, thanks for that advice, Mira, I have to bear that in mind on my next dates! ;)
    Yes I know, it's a fine line between getting a girl to like you and making her to think of you as a real macho!
    By the way, sentences like "I see my unborn children in your eyes" would (thankfully) never come to my mind xD
    Did you really date some guys making such "compliments" to you?!?

    No way xD And how did you react? And did you go out with that guy again? hehe
    Well, I'm a young single guy, I don't expect my next date to be the woman I'll share my whole life with! ;)
    Don't get me wrong, I don't have like 5 dates at one weekend only! I'm not that bad! :P (I already mentioned this, didn't I?!)

    Thank you for all of the input and for asking the question! This topic is something I've been debating about for quite sometime.
    I hope it is not brash for me to hope in and join Fernando in asking a question or two. I've noticed it to be taboo in some parts of the states to approach a random woman (I suppose random is not the correct term but I am not aware on how else to phrase some you've not met yet!); flirt with her and attempt to attain a first date in public areas, such as airports, train stations, and so on. Does that taboo apply in Germany?

    Fernando, I've also never used a pickup line like that.. I suppose I am not suave enough to use pick that. haha
