Something that caters to people looking for more than random hookups? My understanding in talking this over with female colleagues is that random hookups are more or less what dating sites are for in Germany. If you actively and openly seek a relationship, that immediately disqualifies you as desperate or undesirable. One is supposed to get to know people through work or acquaintances and only then start one-on-one dates.
If you want to date Germans, my advice is just to start off with making German friends, and eventually they will introduce you to their friends, you'll meet their friends' friends, and sooner or later you'll find someone you click with. This is Germany after all, probably not much demand for "serious" dating sites in English.
But if there's a gap in the market, you could go out and start one. One possibility could be the UK Guardian's Soulmates guardian. It's one of the world's biggest EL news sites and has Berlin and German-based members, unsurprisingly given we are only an hour or so from London it's left-field, educated types. I know other "seriously looking" people that had success on this.
And there are presumably other similar from the US? Aside from going out and my experience here is very much like the last post, play it cool , then why not TT? Why not place a small ad in a local paper's "lonely hearts"?
Casual meetings with German singles
Also Facebook for all it's global appeal, where it has been most useful for me has been in building local relationships and getting myself known, albeit in a much smaller place. I'd expect the "serious professional" Germans online to be on parship. If I were looking for a wife to have children with, I wouldnt want to meet a group of people that are only in the area for 6 months between university and getting a job and want some adventure over that time.
Likewise, if I were looking for a few nights of fun, I dont think Id enjoy meeting loads of women who want to talk about names for our children on the first date. I can imagine also that if someone were looking for a "real" relationship, but used a dating site mostly used for casual hookups, that they may feel used. Finally, while I am cynical and generally have a low opinion of peoples unrealistic rose tinted view of relationships, I have to say, you have blown me away with this beauty.
At the end of the day, my main motivator to learn German was relationships not just romantic ones. I wanted to be able to pick from, and communicate with, the entire population not that small proportion that share my language. If you think about it, "must speak same language as me" is also very, very "random" when you are in another nation. And very, very, very limiting of course. All of my male company is German-speaking now.
Some do decent English on top. Most I have never spoken English to. It's actually quite fun and refreshing, connecting with people in another language. With an EL speaker, it'd be a bit like "only together because we speak English", like all we had in common. Posted 21 Feb The sad fact about these "dating" websites is, that they all full of people who feel lonely, but who aren't particularly interested in doing anything about it, most can't even be bothered to send an email longer than "hi".creatoranswers.com/modules/pending/4362.php
The 11 Best German Dating Sites & Apps
Interestingly enough, you are statistically more likely to meet a partner if you are NOT registered on a dating website I've forgotten where I read it, but it was written by a very clued-up mathematician I believe. You'd be better off banging into people with your shopping trolley at the local supermarket, just make sure that your accident insurance is up to date first though.
I do not want to listen to a guy go ' I am smart. Did I tell you I am smart and creative?
Let's not forget successful And oh hey, can you pick up the cheque for both of us? I am short on cash. I do not want to hook up with a 5 who thinks he is a 9, especially when he goes on and one about how he is God's gift to women. I do not want to meet a guy who thinks that pushing me and herding me by pushing me without warning in the direction he want me to go is okay and get butthurt when I tell him to knock it off.
I do not want to date guys who try to hook me up on various schemes so that they will get paid when I join the scheme. I am not looking for marriage or kids and not looking for guys who think that, just because I am Indian, I am indeed looking for marriage and kids coz 'that is how all Indian women are.
I just want to meet a decent human being who get my nerdy jokes and Big Bang Theory references and with whom I can laugh. If I cannot have one accidentally bump into me, I am content to adopt a doggie and be the crazy dog lady 20 years from now. Do it the old fashioned way then, and take up a hobby like pool billiards, or even better table football mostly played by students and some very highly qualified professionals believe it or not , and hang around in the type of bars you usually wouldn't want to be seen dead in, the type males unfortunately prefer.
Throw out the ugly ones: You can multiple that number back out again and accommodate all the Australians and Americans, but there won't be many more than 25 of them. And if you don't like smokers or drinkers or people with freckles etc etc, it gets less and less and less. If you are on OKcupid, you've probably met them or counted them out as being unsuitable already.
