from London to Karlsruhe, Germany
 
Hi guys, I have just moved from London to Karlsruhe in Germany and am attempting many ways of getting in touch with like minded people. London as you can imagine was a lot more liberal and open to my way of living. So If anyone here is from Germany and has any tips....that would be awesome. Also a general HELLO to everyone on this Forum ....I look forward to some good conversation :)

Hello ScyllaVeX,
Welcome to our forum.

You can always try the "Dating & Friendships" area (use the "Forum Jump" menu, bottom of this page, right hand side, to get there) to see if there are people in your area you can get together with.

Also there's,

Don't know if any of those links might help.

Glad you could join us.

You said "from Germany" and I have, in fact, lived in Germany. Just not as an adult. ;)

My biggest tip worldwide, though? Look for urban areas if that's what you miss, though I daresay you've already got a decent-size urban area. I mean, Karlsruhe isn't the sticks. There's Pforzheim half an hour away, and the big one is Stuttgart forty minutes beyond that. How far are you willing/able to travel?

Have you tried reaching out to fellow expats? Do you speak enough German that a native would be a good relationship prospect? Really, I do suggest you get conversational in the language ASAP. Breaks down lots of barriers!

Good luck!

Hey, thanks for the reply. My German is completely fluent, so no problems there :) I have worked in Stuttgart on and off for 4 years while still returning to London inbetween. Now I have had to actually move to Karlsruhe permanently do I find myself really searchiing for other 'like minded' people as I have left my group that I have been with for the last 6-7 years.
I have found a good monthly meet in Heidelberg which I am going to attend and will keep you posted on how it goes. Thanks foor the advice.
Machs gut :)
