However, if you take the time to get to know them, they will open up to you.
Whilst Americans like glossing things over, Germans are much more to the point.
So if you spot a hot guy in the supermarket and want to make contact, you will most likely have to do the talking and he may even get confused as to why you are talking to him.
Sex doesn’t mean you are in a relationship with them though, it doesn’t even mean you are exclusive.
Below you will find some cultural differences that may pop up when In America it’s common to walk up to someone and start talking randomly, in Germany less so.
It’s not that the Germans don’t talk, but they tend to stick to themselves unless they are at a party or some other social gathering where the purpose is to meet new and old friends.
However, it’s not so much about being shy as it’s about it simply not being a custom.
They don’t usually know how to walk up to strangers and start conversations as they haven’t witnessed it happening around them.
This may also be why they like getting drunk and partying…In America it’s more common to approach people randomly and also to talk about random things.
