If 10 years ago someone had told me that I would be married to a German, I would laugh. Well, life is REALLY full of surprises, not only I married a German who speaks German, but one that also speaks my language too, Portuguese. Yes, our 3-year wedding anniversary is tomorrow, and while this post is being published, we are celebrating this day in Paris. A husband who actually speaks that crazy language that sounds more like cursing, drinks lots of beer and only eats potatoes and sausages?So forget what you’ve heard about all the Germans being cold and mean.They have a heart, they can love deeply and intense, they are loyal and they do everything they possibly can to make their loved ones happy. I am lucky, I get to have arguments with W in my own language, sort of, because sometimes he doesn’t know the Portuguese word for what he wants to say, or I don’t remember the Portuguese word at the moment and just say it in German. We have our own language, a crazy mix of German, Portuguese and English, but what matters is that we always find a way to understand the other. Why call a professional if you already have your German husband?Come up with something more unique: "I love the scent of your perfume," or "your voice is very beautiful." — UNIQUE DATES: Don't ask her out for coffee; make it the theater, a concert, rock climbing.
Here are a few tips to get you moving in the right direction.
Think carefully about inviting us back after a first date – Yes, we might well ask you but that doesn’t necessarily mean we want you to say yes.
A kiss on your doorstep is enough to reassure us that you are interested but if you invite us in for the night we will start to wonder if this happens to every guy you date.
If there’s one country that people seem to love stereotyping, it’s Germany. Instead, I find Germans to really want a purpose in everything (perhaps so they can pencil it into their schedules).
Perhaps it’s from the image of Germans that Hollywood movies give, but I always find that people hardly ever give you a neutral response when you mention the word “Germany” or “Germans.” Example 1: Person: Hey, so I’m moving to Iceland. So instead, something like “Hey, let’s meet for coffee on Thursday at exactly 17.27” would be the correct German response.
