Dating in Germany is still more traditional than in the United States.

Germans marry at an older age than do most Americans and German men tend to take younger wives.

But young German men do tend to date older women to gain valuable experience.

Constant communication and interaction are part of the dating process and fighting is not shied away from.

Men are courteous and chivalrous to women they are genuinely interested in but can be flirty to the point of annoyance to women they do not know but find attractive.

A man is always expected to ask a woman for a date, never the reverse.

The man pays for the date and if the girl is still living with her parents, the man brings flowers to her mother.

The wedding itself is usually held at a morning mass, followed by a day-long feast and reception.

The bride and groom walk to the church together, and in some traditions they saw through a log together with a double-handled saw.

It's customary in France for people to get to know each other slowly and allow romance to develop over time.
