Exactly Im already dreading it.....last weeks I can hear drunks walking past my Airbnb window.......trying to look in on occasion......disturbing my peace and quiet here......bunch of drunks most of them.......which you can see just by looking at their faces. A person asked me to go to the Frannz club in Prenz-berg where Im staying .....but I going to miss it as its just looks like total shit......I went out for drinks for the first week of my working trip here but now I just feel like staying in......cant be bothered with drinking and dealing with some drunk obnoxious people who some of which are high as a kite......acting like a bunch of morons......I cannot stand drunk dickheads. Another thing is I noticed is that people are here say that the English where Im from are flakey - but since Ive been here I noticed not only the Germans but foreigners trying to fit in /hipsters all flakey and fake as fuck.....they never keep their word and all just pretenders.....What a bunch of losers.

Im a very social person with the right crowd or person....and positive enviroment.....but is it me or does the general mood here in Berlin strike you are depressing and somewhat suppressive......back in the Uk I used to go for runs and cycling alot but here its dosnt appeal to me so much as everywhere seems just dirty/filthy and looks horrible.......and un-inviting......I mean also the nature - at least in winter is totally gone......Even the natural beauty in and around London has something special about it also clean and hold many nice parks and areas to cycle....and I dont mean central but surburbia - in my opinion the real London....and people are fair more friendly. In my mind I used to put down the UK big time......and of course its not perfect.....but I sure will appreciate it much more once I go back after being here on and off for so long.

What I tried to get at was that you need to put the feel out there to even happen and for it to go the right way. But of course it's from seeing it right when sometimes you gotto feel first to then see. And we do want to hold back words put in mouth and the feelings from there is bc we hate that, it opens one up to hurt and being dumbed down, a toxic combination.

I have been living in Germany for some time, lets say couple of years.

I do never understand two things which I encounter almost everyday here. Integration of foreigners and German language. What does Integration mean ? When a person is integrated for Germans ? I am here to work. I do work hard and deliver the requested outcome at work , I do pay my taxes, I do obey the laws, I do not commit a crime, I respect the people in society. So, am I integrated ? What does this whole integration hype mean ?

Secondly, the German language. I do have zero understanding of '' you have to speak German '' perception from the moment you arrive in Germany. I also think that all Germans assume that when a foreign person starts to live in their country, It will last forever. They don't understand the concept of being expat or student. Also, how can I learn or improve the language skills when German people have no intention to interact with foreigners ? It is also annoying that, German people are so narrow minded. When you know them from work, school, dance course etc for them you always belong to that social circle and they have no intention to befriend with you.

When you search for the jobs, there is always the same question '' can you speak German ? '' even you apply for global, international company. That's why I do speak English at work. It is my career decision to work in global companies and I would not want to work at your local bla bla bla GmbH.

It is impossible to approach people here. When you are at club, bar and speak in English to them, they go away. When you match on Tinder and speak in English conversation does not proceed more than couple sentences and always do you speak German question comes.

I do not know, what I am doing in this country. I just have to earn money and leave this country before I lose my sanity.

I'm not really sure what is meant by 'integrated' here. One could speak perfect German, could speak multiple languages and hold 2 degrees but it wouldn't necessarily make us good enough in their eyes.

Re language. I tried everything. The Germans that I encountered would often complain that foreigners here don't speak it often enough or we'll enough. Yet they showed little interest in helping myself or any other foreigner in our efforts to learn.

Can confirm. I speak German on a very high level (pretty much C2) and I've had this happen to me, even though I don't have a strong accent.

Just went out of my office in Mitte and right across the street at a VERY busy intersection some dumb German had his penis out and was just pissing right in the open with dozens of people walking around him?

Well I mean Spez, the owner of reddit, was open about some of his edits to people's posts. No telling how much secret editing and suppression is going on. Plus all the organized pro-antifa stuff on there. Try this out for proof: go to r/berlin and post anything negative about antifa or about nogo areas in Berlin. You'll almost instantly get more downvotes than people online on r/Berlin. A day later look at your user profile admin section on traffic to your profile. There will literally be hundreds more visits as a result of the post than you regularly get. There are a lot of weird censorship groups in Germany that orchestrate this kind of stuff.

And the Germans freak out at any criticism of Germany (just today I overheard a conversation about the Ai Weiwei thing and how nice they think the taxi drivers here are laughing crying emoji) or just deny it. I have had Germans tell me that they've never seen anyone in Berlin pissing in public, that there are almost no homeless people and that the city is clean.

Anyway, at times when I thought I was going crazy this place has helped me regain balance and to realize that I cannot live here any longer. I tried to use reddit for this but they pretty much banned me immediately from r/berlin.

I did notice when I was 19 in southern Germany even though I had some good friends....the general feeling from people towards foreigners was distain and suspicion.....and quite a strange approach to us English and Irish people....at best....It was quite un-nerving at time.......Even the other day I walked into a restaurant and usually speak German (this is in Berlin) but this time I just said in English to the waiter I know - "Hi How are you?" I got funny looks from other people on another table.....2 guys seemed to be young German Gay guys and I could see their faces and one in particular had a look of disgust and abruptly left the establishment.....I though to myself - what a little shit.

I have never ever had any problem to communicate with people. I have lived in Austria, UK and Holland before moving to Germany. I made so many friends most of them were temporary, some of them were permanent friends who I still keep in touch with. Anyways, my point is, I have never ever experienced feeling alone.

However, everything became upside down when I moved to Germany for post graduates studies. Yes, I was deceived by free education and Germany needs skilled labour force trap. This year is my 5th year in this country, I have finished my studies, I have a job which pays okay but I feel extremely alone, purposeless, hopeless, depressive, no friends etc. You know these feelings... All of these feelings are related with this country. Too many things are wrong for a normal, decent human being here. I am feeling like I am stuck in this country.

I have to keep working couple more years to raise the funds I need to support my move to another country. I hope, I will be achieving my target.
