  1. How to date without tinder

    Oh, and maybe try out a few coworking offices...
  2. How to date without tinder

    Become an English teacher. I got quite a few offers in that position and am really not very attractive. You're standing up there in front of them so they have to keep looking at you, you're in charge which looks quite sexy...   In the days before OLD I also got chatted up in the pub, on the train... you have to start conversations. Just start one in English and you'll soon find out if theirs is good enough.   And write an ad on ebay Kleinanzeigen and other local Kleinanzeigen websites. Here in Dresden there's a local events magazine which has a website, maybe you have something like that? In any case, with an ad you can just write one and keep putting it up again and again.
  3. What do you do when you feel down or anxious?

    Wait until afterwards? Don't waste your female skill of multitasking! :D

    I took your reply as a joke, too,SmurfLee - or I'd have warned you against getting yourself a boyfriend, too You just can't trust 'em*   Apparently some study years ago supposedly suggested that semen could be an anti-depressant (it was reported that way) but it shouldn't be taken that seriously.   *humour
  5. What do you do when you feel down or anxious?

    Show me the studies proving your point and I'll show you mine Or you could just google it. I doubt it's really true either, but what can I say, the placebo effect is definitely a thing.

    Supposedly also works vaginally, but you can try both   (edit: Oh, I see the vaginal method might be a little tricky for you! We ladies are so blessed.)
  7. What do you do when you feel down or anxious?

    There are also studies suggesting that semen itself has anti-depressant properties...

    When you do talking therapy, counsellors ask specific questions designed to make you see things from a different angle.   But talking therapy is also not the only kind of therapy there is. You could also try CBT, for instance.   If one counsellor can't help, try another. Like you would with boyfriends.
  9. Moving To Germany [Advice needed]

    Yes, my comments were assuming that you are indeed an EU citizen. If you are, you could also get your partner to have a look here (for instance) as apparently you are entitled to advice for people with disabilities.

    I had the same problem. In the end I had to write to UCAS, the examination board. They mademe up a nice replacement certificate. With the wrong grades they didn't have the information any more, but there was someone there with a practical streak.

    As long as the UK is still in the EU, you just have to do the stuff required of EU citizens. If and when it leaves, there will supposedly be a period during which you can still stay without a visa, and basically will still be treated like any other EU citizen, giving you time to sort yourself out. But, as you may have noticed, there is no deal, which means that no such period has in fact been agreed upon. You can sign up to a UK government newsletter to automatically receive info.   Main thing is Einwohnermeldeamt or Bürgerbüro, where you go to register your address (Wohnsitz anmelden). You're supposed to do that fast, within 2 weeks of living there. For that you need confirmation of your address from your landlord.   Oh, and yes, health insurance is mandatory and a big deal.   Like Brad says, get yourself a big indexed folder with all the certificates and letters you've ever received - O levels, Christmas card from landlord - so you can whip it out when they start shaking their heads.
  12. Yes, human lawyers can be terrible.   Can't "most" also mean "almost" in the US? The Disney Cheshire Cat says "Most everyone's mad here".
  13. You can get various apps where you enter in the food you have eaten and you can see you whether you've had enough iron, vitamins etc. They are only a rough guide but quite useful if you tend to undereat. The Samsung Health app used to be really good. Dizziness could also be a form of panic attack for instance. Those aren't necessarily accompanied or triggered by actual panic; you might just get the dizziness sometimes when something stressful is going on in the background.
  14. Where to buy British groceries in Berlin

    Thanks John, might take a look then if I have time.
