Hey the 90s also had the rigid rigid rigid style of Michael Preetz
all for nothing she's from Cottbus. But hopefully she's still a football fan, you wouldn't believe all the idiots worshiping the EPL and La Liga here.
OH, I would. A lot of EPL fans here too.
We have a Costa Rican exchange student now, and he has a Czech friend. Both are big Arsenal fans. Jan is excited about Slavia Praha making the CL Group; wonder how he'll root against Arsenal!
doesn't it drive you crazy? if anyone on my team knows anything about pro soccer it goes something along the lines of "I really like Barcelona, but Chelsea is my favorite team" Everyone is a Barca, Chelski, Man U. or AC Milan fan.
we don't even have a Bayern fan most kids have probably never heard of them
I find a lot of kids from the Middle East who I meet are just like that
When someone asks me "Woher kommen Sie?" what is the best way to answer? The last time I was in Austria and someone asked me that, they had a hard time understanding me. I think I said "Ich komme aus Amerika," which he didn't understand, so I switched to "Ich komme aus den Vereinigten Staaten," which he also didn't understand, maybe because of my accent (or grammar). So what the best response to this question?
Both answers are perfectly fine, although I'd rather stick to the first answer (more common). If people seem to have trouble understanding that, I'd guess that it's because of the accent they're not familiar with (it's Austria after all). In this case, I'd just say "Amerika". Even Austrians should be able to understand that.
Maybe even "America"!
Third variant "ich komme aus den USA", just in case you need to keep trying .
ohh we have another exchange student from Heidelberg! Please be a Freiburg fan. With my luck I'll ask her and she'll say oh I looove FC Bayern. Haha Back on topic.
Is "Du bist schön" a normal thing to say?
I hear it all the time.
I think it's a bit awkward. For sure not a good pick up line. 'Du siehst atemberaubend/gut aus' is much better I think (but then again I have a hard time picking up German girls, so I'd better not answer that question the first place ;-) )
Maybe I'd use 'du bist schön' when waking up the next morning or so. Not in school or a club. 'es war sehr schön' may be good to know as well :-D
I'd wait with the heavy stuff and start with more casual conversation . "Du siehst atemberaubend aus" might be a bit to strong as well. On the other hand, I wasn't exactly a chica magnet during my high school years if memory serves me well. Maybe some of the women here can give useful advice .
If you want to get the girls, my experience tells me, that you have to be cocky rather than adoring.
But back to the question: "Du bist schön" isn't wrong but very unimaginative. I'd include some sort of metaphor...but that can get very schmaltzy...so it very much depends on the situation.
Or, if you want to sound more casual, I'd use "hübsch" instead of "schön". That usually works better.
I like "Seit ich Dir begegnet bin, habe ich Dich mehr bewundert als irgendein Mädchen, dem ich begegnet bin, seit ich Dir begegnet bin."
In all seriousness... spare the pick-up lines .
That sounds like a quote straight out of a American High School comedy .
Spare the dialog....just kiss their neck.
From Kant to teenage pick-up lines...how's that for thread progression?
But yeah DF's got the right idea!
Correct my friend. LONG gone are the days of "Hohe Minne" and writing poetry in order to snare your sought-after Mädchen. I believe die Prinzen said
"Du mußt ein Schwein sein in dieser Welt
Du mußt gemein sein in dieser Welt
Denn willst du ehrlich durchs Leben geh'n
Kriegst'n Arschtritt als Dankeschön"
Unfortunately, I'm not very good at being an Arschloch.
I just have all the tools to keep the girl (compliments, general sweetness), and none to trap her. Curses!
This is turning into quite a thread, isn't it? Now...could Kant ever pick up girls? LOL
Well, 9 times out of 10 I am sure the boy has less than honorable intentions, so why not just get to the heart of the issue.
Considering that he never had intentions to marry, I have always had my suspicions - not that there is anything wrong with that .
And I'm staying nice, just to let everyone know. Some women like this, really .
I would never trust a guy who never went 100 miles from Königsberg in his entire lifetime.
Damn, you're fast... it took me a second or so to edit out that second "I", yet you already quoted me .
Oh, and google just taught me that indeed articles have been written about the question if Kant was gay. I'm so not original...
To be honest, I'm not very good at picking-up girls. However, I have the highest success rate if a wingman introduces me. I guess this is due to the fact that as soon as you approach a girl, she knows what you want (not too hard to figure out really). But when you're introduced, you get the benefit of doubt. So you can get into a conversation without her being too suspicious. That's also where being cheeky comes into play - in a nice/funny way of course.
On the Kant issue: I think he already had enough problems to ponder about. I guess he just didn't want to carry another burden.
And I don't blame him...there's only so much a man can do in his life. You either try to understand the universe OR women. Of course, both of those goals are unachievable as they are both way too complicated for one human mind to grasp, but you have to choose one and Kant chose the universe.
I actually never got a girl out of context (ie friend of a friend or get to know in school, study program etc.)...
No need for pick up lines there, really.
Do you really know what we want from you, dear girls?
Here's an odd question:
How would you translate "____ is turning in his grave"?
