I dated a German girl for a while. She broke it off after I asked her to call me "The Media" in bed.

I read the entire article trying to find ou what the author's point was, but I didn't quite get it. I got as far as: "Don't get to enthusiastic about the stock exchange merger and the German economy in general because ..."

I saw him talking about comparing the unemployment rates, but considering the context it would be like comparing apples to oranges anyway. The rest of his argument seemed to be lacking even that much.

There seemed to be no substance to this article at all.

Dated a German girl for a while. The delta between grooming habits was a major issue for me. Hairy pits and BO are unflattering on a woman.

As long as she keeps her Maultaschen closed, I'm good.

Probably doesn't work out because the American keeps mentioning the war. The British did it one time and thought they got away with it ok. They didn't.

I wish the difference were more clear. I detest being ignorant like "Austrian, German, Swiss is all the same" but if there's no flag around, I have no clue.
