Generalizations in the German media

Spiegel: Hunky, Handsome, Wimpy and Weak

 

 

For single women visitors, the dating game in Germany can at first seem like a free, gourmet buffet. The men are almost all impressively tall, many are blond and, almost invariably, they are extremely handsome with the bodies of Adonis. Even better, they dress well, smell of expensive eau de Cologne, and they're intelligent. ...but they're also weak, wimpy, afraid of commitment, and painfully shy.

The above article is ridiculously pompous, I have never found the average German male to be a tall adonis.

Oh come on, where's your sense of humour?

 

It's poking fun, it's satire.

 

And they say that's a quality Germans lack.

From the article, German Aristo Male's Favorite Activities: Sailing. Mercedes shopping. Reminiscing about his time at English boarding school. :lol:

The men are taller in the north than in the south. The best looking german guys I know are from the Hannover area. But I do agree with the wimpy bit. :P

Generalisations are generally not worth the stereotypes they're based on, usually.
