  5. My husband said ich liebe dich is reserved for partners while ich hab dich lieb is for everyone else 🤷🏿‍♀️🤷🏿‍♀️   In the 6 years before meeting my husband and dabbing dated a few Germans, I’ve found that when German men are into you, they My husband told his family about me a week after we meet.    We were engaged a year after meeting and married 8 months after getting engaged and had a baby two years later. But we also met in our mid-30s, so there wasn’t much pussyfooting around, no pun intended 😂

  11. Berlin U.S. consulate entry, security procedures

    Was down at the embassy today to declare our daughter’s birth, and they’re very strict in not letting people in more than 5 to 10 minutes before the appointment. We were allowed to take in her diaper bag with no liquids except milk, and they wanted us to drink the milk first, just like at the airport.    They also seem to be scheduling appointments for American services  very far apart as there was no else there while we were waiting, and no one came after us for the hour that we were there. I have no idea what it’s like for the visa services. 
  12. Graduate Certificate in... endorsement in...

    I have a graduate certificate in addition to an MA, but I didn’t translate it on my Lebenslauf. I figured if they aren’t sure what it is, they could simply ask; it’s never come up though 🤷🏿‍♀️

    An acquaintance of ours lives there and has lived there before the wall came down. The apartments there are HUGE. He raised his four children there. Not sure of the prices though.  Just be aware that in Plattenbau, you can hear EVERYTHING.
  14. Grocery refund rules in German Supermarkets

    I bought organic meat today at Lidl and noticed after getting home that it expires today. Aren’t they supposed to sell it at a reduced price or does that only happen towards the end of the day?
