It would seem that this is truly a cultural thing, end of story.
I have heard stories about people spending hours talking at a bar or club without anyone getting the other one’s number.
On the streets of Mitte, however, you find your well-to-do business men and the members of the Highsnobriety fraternity.
These fine fellas wear head to toe designer and spare no expense when choosing their attire.
Sure, “society” demands that we be apart of a suffocating system of pressure and conformity. Unfortunately though, those who throw off the proverbial societal shackles tend to shirk all sense of adulthood and responsibility along with it. Before I get carried away and start a soapbox rant, let me take you back to where I am at: single and ready to mingle.These character traits might be off putting but he is not for one second sore on the eyes. They don’t make the first move One of the first lessons I learned about German men is that they are extremely passive when it comes to making the first move, or any move thereafter.When chatting to a nice bloke at the bar, it is very likely that he will not ask for your number or give you any indication that he likes you or would like to see you again.Now I’m not saying this doesn’t present a whole host of problems but the truth is, one gets used to being chased and it is quite an adjustment when that dynamic is no longer there. It’s like “Open Sesame” but with the word sex On the other hand (so I’ve heard) if it’s sex you want then that’s not hard to find here.Contrary to what I just told you about people meeting and not seeing each other again, if it’s casual sex or one-night-stands you’re after then this is the city for you.
