Yup. Dating in Berlin was awful...sometimes I would wonder why I wouldn't hear from Guys for WEEKS at a time. ( times out of 10...it was because they were waiting for their Syphilis to clear up. (Yuck)

At least they waited and cared enough not to give it to you, in my case this guy didn't care at all, still dating and "caring" for you until you know, the chancre came up... plain sick mind

LOVE AND HATE IN BERLIN
Hi. I'm a Berlin girl (please don't hate me, I'm ok. Really.) I met this guy last year. Of course he is not from Berlin: he is sociable, super hot, funny, tall, great style, 100% my type - I will NEVER MEET A MAN LIKE HIM AGAIN.
I love him - he hates Berlin. We often check this website to get some support from other Berlin haters, but he just can't take it anymore. He hates Berlin so much that he actually thinks about leaving this craphole.
Thank you Berlin, I hate you, you're about to ruin my life.

I have a friend called Schmitt, true, who gets so down he lsitens to hitler speeches to pik up his morale, he lives in friedrichsheim Berlin. He wanted me to watch this film from the 20s with an awful theme made at Weissensee lake Berlin, it disturbed me for days. Theres parts of Berlin I like a barman told me he knew an architect who lost his job now picks stuff out of a bin, thats Berlin, a lot like it, i even liked it some. it gave me tinnitus dunno why, weird, it was commy state - a Thai girl in a bar chased me down the street to pay 50c for a glass of water. She wouldnt let up and I paid her. A girl also Thai I think in a takeaway joint for thai food also came running down the street for money. I said I paid, she swore at me in German, WTF

Presents itself as a city overflowing with a supportive arts community and such. I went to an open mic night (am a respected singer/songwriter back in North America) and because I wasn't awful--and I'm a pretty girl who bathes, works out, and wears makeup--all I could see was people smirking at me when I performed. They barely clapped when I was finished. This has happened on more than one occasion. Sorry I am actually making some organic music on an instrument and trying to share it with you, you reeking, jealous, untalented, dispassionate posers.

Just to add: I suppose if I had shown up with stringy hair, acne, and a machine that makes blip-bloop noises so the audience could fling their unwashed, doughy bodies around, I would have been a smash. Why is Berlin so averse to well-groomed women who express themselves through acoustic music? Ah, right. Because Berlin is WAY TOO COOL FOR ME! I'm suprised Berliners aren't using "dope" and "phresh" to describe themselves.

Its an island of dog turd and concrete, floating in an uninspiring, post soviet wasteland hundreds of miles from the next city, whose most famous architectural masterpiece was a wall. I for one am not surprised that it, or the people who choose to inhabit are not particularly great

Left 3 weeks ago; It's nice being around Men that aren't afraid to be MEN, and Women that dont apologize for being Feminine. I'll certainly miss the convenience of living in Europe while I am gone.

But be damned if I will ever miss a f**king Berliner.

it is funny, and being nearly 6 months since my departure I can say it is 99% true... miss a few of the expats I met there and two Berliners... but not nearly enough to go back for more than a visit.

I just feel like such a huge failure for ending up with a job in Berlin. I don't know whether to abandon my career or stick out this awful place. I can't stand being associated with all the filth and decay of Berlin.

I thought it was just me, and after living in Berlin/traveling throughout this Country for one year, I can honestly say…these people are the WORST. Everything that it said in this forum is true to a fault. There's a reason that no one likes the Germans…even the more Well Traveled and 'Cultured' of the lot can't stand their own. To the point that I will now only associate with Germans that live in Germany Seasonally. These "Part Time" Germans are the ones that: have a real Education, speak Multiple Languages (including Business English), have rewarding Creative careers, and are Sophisticated enough to hold real conversations and are capable of Critical Thought.

Then there are the "Full Time" Germans. These sorry pieces of White Trash are the ones that; have never left their little Dorfs until University, think Berlin is the center of the Universe, have never had more than ONE type of employment or none, think EVERYTHING German is better, have the Social Skills and Charm of Mayonnaise, speak only one language…and expects even Tourist to know it FLUENTLY. These are the type of Germans that are giving the Country a bad name. As far as the History…WHO CARES?!!!!! There's a Starbucks within walking distance from almost every Jewish/German Memorial…our friend 'History'…she aint present. Can we just freaking get over it and join this Century?! Nope. Because Change, Progression, Motivation are abstract concepts to Automatons. The mere thought of these tangible Ideals would mean that maybe…just maybe…the current Mentality is wrong.

And we ALL know that these fuckers HATE being Wrong.

This is why they won't ever change, this is why they fear Modernization, Gentrification, Globalization and Multiculturalism. It's because they have become so darn marginalized to the point that they cannot ADAPT. They are a dying Breed…just look at the numbers Birth/Suicide/Depression/Obesity/Mobility/Wages, all indicative of a people that are skating on the edge of annihilation. (Karma is a female dog no?) I've seen more protest for Refugees in Berlin than I have seen for Fair Wages. How in the world do these people exist in this Century?!

They are annoying, whiny, miserable, complacent, FAT, obsessed, uncouth, classless, and HORRIBLY unimaginative. For a place that prides itself on Order & Organization…these people are either slobs or Hoarders. I have YET to have been into a Full Time Germans' home and felt at ease. And I honestly believe that 'Furniture' is a bourgeois concept in Berlin, along with Style, Grace, and Cadence. Nothing these people do make sense. From their horrid lifestyles and Tastes, to their Values and Priorities. EVERYTHING is a Contradiction with Germans. They want Privacy…yet keep their noses in other peoples business. They want Freedom…yet everyone should think the "German Way". They are Over-educated to the point of Stupidity.

Even the most destitute from the poorest Countries have enough sense to know how to milk this Country for what it's worth…then LEAVE. And I cant think of a more deserving group of people. Germany SUCKS.

Fantastic post i think this just about sums up the most part about Berlin /Germans. Most people who stay are sheep who are afraid to leave until the media hype industry focusses its spotlight on somewere else as being the "So called hip place to live". All very mediocre, boring, dull, depressing and dissapointing a place.
