I was on the verge of developing a complex about my come-hither-ly skills, but, thank Immanuel Kant, it turns out that German men might just be into me, after all! According to this article, the German male expresses his attraction towards a female by staring at her blankly and occasionally discussing geopolitical matters with her but mostly by ignoring her. Read about it here.

Success! We've rescued an entire nation of prospective suitors for me! I like intellectual discussions as much as the next fraulein. I can appreciate subtle, long drawn out courting processes and having the pants bored off me. Bring it on!

I'd love to hear from my German readers about this matter.

This, of course, begs the question: do I have any German readers?

All men are attracted to sluts! And they only smile at sluts as well. Men suck.

ah yes German men... I've met a few in my time... coincidently mostly when I lived in Germany. They tend to be reluctant to make the first move and tend not to be as sure of themselves are men of other nationality, which can be nice, but also can lead to a very long, drawn-out courtship with nothing actually happening in the end. They're perfect if you want to boss them around, but less good if you want them to do something... imho.

Your German readership finds the article very funny and recognizes a need for improvement. However, not all Germans share the same flirting behavior. Whereas e.g. people from the Rhineland are very open minded, the North Germans are said to be cold like fishes. If you are interested in an ethnographic trip, let me know if I can be of assistance.
