Do: Position yourself as close as possible and ask him a neutral question.

When he fails to flirt back, don’t immediately assume he is not interested.

German men are not particularly known as the Casanovas of Europe.

Awkward and robotic, they need to down lots of beer before they can even think of initiating a conversation with a woman, and by then they are in no shape to stand straight. If you want to meet a German man, the best bet is to actually just make the move yourself.

But it is actually is the no-nonsense directness that shows they don’t like sugar-coating the truth.

No need to wonder if you should chew some gum while talking to him. While you definitely have to grow some thick skin, the bonus is that they really tell it like it is and that can be refreshing. Do not: Expect that guy you’ve been eyeing across the room to make his way to you.

In a German-on-German flirt, the power rests solidly with the Fräulein.

For those of you who come from countries like the US or Canada where politeness is the norm, Germans may surprise you with their rudeness.

And when you do go back home you might find yourself shocked at your countrymen’s vulgar ways.
