I'm an easy going, non-confrontational guy so the relationship just tired me out!
I think the English attitude is "not to complain" if so petty that you can ignore a problem, but my girl had to mention EVERY SMALL problem to me?
The biggest prob anglo-american guys seem to have with us is the honesty and straightforwardness :-))) I dated one for a few months last year who used to make me take off my trews in her apartment, as I'd been sitting on public transport or in cafes or in bars and she didn't like that.
Needless to say, she turned out to be as mad as a sleeping bag full of badgers who've been sniffing petrol. I dated a german girl for 2 years and was always told if something was wrong (no matter how small! ), fished for compliments every 10mins (even repetitive)...
It is a form of courtship, consisting of social activities done by the couple, either alone or with others.
The protocols and practices of dating, and the terms used to describe it, vary considerably from country to country and over time.
We have become so close as friends we have adopted each other as forgotten sisters!
Dating as an institution is a relatively recent phenomenon which has mainly emerged in the last few centuries.
These species-particular behavior patterns provide a context for aspects of human reproduction, including dating.
However, one particularity of the human species is that pair bonds are often formed without necessarily having the intention of reproduction.
ie: if some of your friends came over for dinner!!! The one thing that would seriously put me off german girls is if they dont shave their armpits (and legs etc).
I just wanted to thank you for your brilliant and safe site.
