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.
Germans are typically perfectionists and seem to expect this from everyone they come in contact with.
Further, if you do something wrong or not by their standards they normally have no problem ridiculing you and telling you what an idiot you are.
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.
If you agree to meet at a restaurant at , he will be there waiting at and not keep you waiting. Most Germans love to travel, and they have a lot of holidays compared to North Americans.
Most German men would never dream of asking a girl out with only one-day notice. In fairness to them, this is because many German girls are also about going “dutch” so they’ve used to this.
He will ask at least several days in advance, assuming that you have your life planned out in advance as he does. Besides he’s probably putting the money, he saved for your half of the trip away for your future together. Like when my then fiance came home for lunch for the first time in 12 years, because he missed me and thought I might be lonely.
