    Germans here, the older ones living longer here, are generally straight forward, but not unfriendly.

    I've never been to Germany. In my life I've met only two Germans. The first one was a woman who was lost and asked me for directions in NYC. I remember her because she went into the corner store next to the subway and bought one of their giant pretzels and bit into it like it was butter. I then bought one (I love big soft pretzels) but it was too hard for me. I couldn't bite into/through it, and I remember thinking that the German woman must have really strong teeth. The second German person I met was a man I met on my first venture to a local park in a neighborhood I just moved to in Miami Beach, Florida (park at 85th street and Collins Avenue). He was in shorts, riding a bicycle. We chatted for a bit, he said he was a pilot, and he invited me to go to Key West with him but I declined and left the park because he exposed his erect penis to me and said he didn't need viagra. Anyway, oh, I met a third German in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida who said he was a soccer coach in Germany. He invited me to his hotel to use the swimming pool but I didn't go. I'd say the Germans are very open and friendly.


    I also met a group of Austrians in the supermarket. They were very friendly. They asked me if I spoke German. They were all very tall and big boned.

    edit: I just remembered I met two tourists from Oberhausen, Germany. A sweet young couple. They were very nice. Their names were Justine and Bjorn. She was short like me.


    another edit: I took a German class in college and my teacher/professor was a German speaking Swiss woman. I lost my voice the first month and got sick (mononucleosis) and had to drop out that semester. I would say she was a good teacher. Didn't get to talk with her one on one.

    Nemez , the mute Jerman

    Perhaps , Germans are uncommunicative :
    The Slavic exonym nemets, nemtsy derives from Proto-Slavic němьcь, pl. němьci, 'the mutes', 'not able (to speak)' (from adjective němъ 'mute' and suffix -ьcь).[15] It literally means a mute and can be also associated with similar sounding not able, without power, but came to signify those who can't speak (like us); foreigners.

    Mk 10:18 What do you call me a good master, no-one is good .

    Gylfaginning 1.39 But on wine alone Odin in arms renowned Forever lives.
