Gay dating looking for sex
“Despite frustrations, I enjoyed dating in Berlin as it was a way to meet a lot of interesting people from all over the world – a friend once joked to me that my love life looked like a meeting of the U.
N.," she says, highlighting the capital's diverse population. “I was ghosted for the first time ever in Berlin by a guy I was dating for seven weeks and he just stopped returning my texts." The freelance writer also found dating improved her German because she spoke the language when messaging people.
The differences in the way people treat each other in parts of Germany was also apparent for Gi.

When it comes to the romantic side, Barbara is feeling optimistic about the future.
She’s met someone through a business networking site.
The 72-year-old lives in Frankfurt and says it’s a very single friendly city and “a comfortable environment to be in”.
On Tinder, where she listed herself as bi-curious, she met a woman who’s now a great pal.
She’s also become friends with other men and women this way.
Language tandem success Rebecca, 33, from San Francisco, has been in Berlin for six years.
Like Trish, she finds men in the capital sometimes have “Peter Pan syndrome” but looking back, she says, overall it was a positive experience.
Barbara, who’s from South Africa but has lived in Germany for 20 years, says she’s tried online dating but didn’t have much success, often finding her inbox filled with men from far away countries which isn’t what she’s looking for. “Partly because I know a number of single men but none of them make any effort to have a relationship in any way, even though I think we get on well." “I think men are too comfortable these days.” Barbara says a great point about Frankfurt is that it’s a good place to be social to meet friends.
