So please forgive and indulge me. Equality above chivalry If you want an equal partnership — make Germany your first port of call. Rent and restaurant bills are split down the middle. And it is extremely rare that a man will offer you the last seat on public transport.
Bavaria Just as American Northerners scoff at Southerners, Germany has its own regional rivalries and personalities. Here it is in three very broad brush strokes: They believe they come from the best part of Germany — and many are afraid to go in the eastwardly direction fear of neo-nazis, lack of infrastructure, all the stereotypes. Educated but often arrogant individuals. Since shortly before the fall of the Berlin Wall, they grew up with the perception that West Germany is more desirable, more sophisticated, and the one that every hot economy wants to date.

The same goes for offers on drinks, paying for cabs, movies, [insert anything of monetary value here]. In Germany, humility does not call for a polite refusal at the first offer.
But if we let you in, you have a great secret all to yourself. German partners are mainly interested in you. Of course there are many exceptions. This is light hearted love on well-known stereotypes.
