    Germans do tend to be somewhat blunt, but not all of them. There are some cultural rules that apply such as you don't generally open a conversation on the train with a stranger. I also noticed a habit of mine that was considered odd...I hold doors open for women and I got some very strange looks for in Germany.
    I recall a friend of mine that visited a trade-show in Germany having a similar experience. He stood up for women in the train so they could have the seat. They found that kind of odd to do. I should add that he's kind of a macho guy himself (he worked as a bouncer), and has German ancestry, too. It seems that convention of treating women politely is something that went out the door in Germany (and for that matter other Western countries). Guess one has to applaud feminism for this.

You can claim Roman Britannia as the source of your own ethnogenesis, but leave the rest of us out of your identity crisis. Therefore, according to what Finnish Swede and others have stated, you fit the bill like some Mediterranean American, the Ugly American stereotype not belonging to the rest of us. You can't have it both ways. Have your cake and eat it too? Shall we too eat cake, Marie-Antoinette? Dig your own grave! Are you a Channel Islander or something? Maybe a Cornubian or Welchman. Who knows, but certainly non-Saxon.
    Oh great its the who's white or not game. Its a common tactic with most forum trolls.

That's what happened. You simply misunderstood F.S. due to your sensitivities and you smuggled all your pet peeves into one more thread, all of them, all off-topic. What followed was an unsavoury drama in which a grown man behaves inappropriately, emotionally manipulative and downright creepy towards a twenty year old girl. There's no place for that on Skadi.

    This thread is closed, for now.

    It's definitely true that southern Europeans and Americans are excessively talkative, and that look fake.
    But I like the over-polite culture of british people (and in this case some americans). It may look odd, but it have a charm for me.

    A middle way is the best way.

    Well, that's mighty white of you.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    Back in my Army days I was stationed in Berlin, 2/6 Infantry. The Germans seemed to be in a state of Stockholm Syndrome. The girls did not appeal to me. They seemed wrung out and emotionally wasted, incredibly naive and anxious to prove they were not racist. I frankly blame all this on the US/UK. We destroyed the highest expression of the Aryan Folk in Europe and forced race-mixing on the population to further wreck them.
    Sorry for the rant, but this is a pet abomination of mine...

    Sadly, I'd have to go along with this.

    I just couldn't communicate with German women, they seemed very remote

    I did, however, manage to find a German GF during my 14-month stay (..who said exactly the same thing!)

    Interesting!
    I could not care much for any French girl.
    I hopped over the Rhine river and got me a German girl.
