Not that you'll be slapped right away, but your would-be quarry will no-doubt be thinking to herself, "Meinemutterhatmichschonimmervorsolchentypengewarnt." German chicks are simply wary of aggressive flirting. On their turf, the type of aggressive flirting practiced by the semi-desperate the world over will shake German women. Instinct kicks in and directness -- that silver bullet which vanquishes all well-intentioned flirts -- takes over.
If you've met German women outside of Germany, you may be tempted to dispute the above characterization of the German flirt. Theyll look at you with furrowed brow, and some apprehension. They'll turn away or let your sentences drop -- and with them your self-esteem -- into a heavy silence.
Wooing a Greek man can take time and effort but if you are willing to go the distance, your rewards will be greater than King Midas’ stash of gold. COOK WELL: To most Greek men, a woman’s place is in the kitchen and if you can find the key to his stomach, you will have no problem unlocking the key to his heart.
Although it goes without saying that your cooking will never match up to his mother’s culinary skills, being a whizz in the food department will definitely get his tongue drooling. DRESS APPROPRIATELY: Men are very visual creatures and Greek men in particular take great pride in showing off their shiniest, glossiest, most expensive belongings.
In the early wooing stages, try to combine sexy with smart but don’t go too over the top.
Initially they will treat you like a goddess, but keeping their attention can be problematic; that first burst of wild untamed passion can soon slide into apathy and misogynistic expectations if you don’t keep them on their toes.The very worst, though, is trying to tell when a German man is flirting with you.While a New Yorker might gaze seductively at you across a dance floor -- or even say Yo baby! " -- a German guy will often merely stare expressionlessly, making you feel like youve reverted to the Funky Chicken or have a booger on your cheek.Interest is indicated by way of a studied, concentrated look on the part of the man -- a gaze which may, but often doesn't, include a smile.Rather than a stare, though, the look should be brief and fleeting -- and the man's job is done.Greek men tend to sway from wonderful, cultured, caring beings to arrogant buffoons who believe that their word and their mother’s word is law.Ensnaring a Greek man is not a difficult task; they can usually be found lurking around coffee shops or down at the Mercedes garage.But he may be desperately in love with you, but be quite simply unable to indicate his interest in anything beyond discussing Angela Merkels domestic policy over a cup of chamomile tea.By the fifth date, you're stuck wondering whether youve developed a sudden case of bad B. A few not-so-unusual examples: In the British book "The Xenophobes Guide to the Germans," an unforgettable passage says something like Germans have the unique ability to bore the pants off of you when it comes to amour.Flirting in Germany is not nearly as fun, meaningless or flattering as it is elsewhere.But the sometimes awkward but also deliciously subtle dance between the genders here might just grow on you.
