German men will always initiate a date with a woman.
The man asks the woman out and is also expected to pay for the date.
If the man does pick the woman up at home he should bring her a bouquet of flowers and also one for her mother as well, if she lives at home.
German men have a tendency to date women that are much younger than they are.
On the contrary, many German men will also date women that are much older too.
Germans have a tendency to marry later in life when compared with Americans.
This is only for the fun of dating and socializing and not ever meant for long term or serious relationships.
