Older German adults that date are likely to find dating partners through friends and acquaintances.
There’s none of this When you’re dating a German man, it’s probably you. Be forewarned; he’ll call because he promised he would. He may just be calling you to inform you that he doesn’t like you, and doesn’t want to see you again. (This has happened to dozens of friends of mine.)Germans are sticklers for being on time. There’s no playing “will he show, or not show” games with German men. You won’t have to worry about trying to convince the waiter that your date is only running an hour late. But apparently waiting two days to call so that he doesn’t appear desperate is not one of them.He may even do all the research and pre-trip planning as well like my husband did when we were dating.You can impress him by showing that you’ve also done your research with these travel tips.The man asks the woman out and is also expected to pay for the date.
There are no set rules or customs for how the man will meet up with the woman for their date though.
It is likely that the date would not take place if the man is late picking up or meeting the woman or late bringing her home.

In Germany punctuality is almost considered to be a trademark.
In my 20s I would have considered dating a German guy boring. If he likes you, he will want to include you in those travel plans.
