Just be warned that most German women do not enjoy being called "Fräulein". You see, it's a diminutive and means "little woman". It used to mean "unmarried woman" who clearly was a lesser kind of woman than any wife already serving her husband... yes, that is sarcasm. D...

Hi Scott, welcome! Glad to meet you. I never really thought I'd be on the spectrum until I took a couple of tests a week ago, because I stumbled over some blog posts that were intriguing. Now I'm pretty sure I can see the signs in some of my relatives... none tested. Not going for an official diagno...

blazingstar: Thank you! I love plants and birds - fortunately, even though I live in a city, there is a fairly large yard behind the house with my apartment and I hear many birds every day. autisticelders: Thank you, too. Your home sounds wonderful. Is that the peninsula? I have an author friend who...

I love languages. I'm bilingual German/English (probably because English is one of my obsessions). To me, each language opens a window to a new way of thinking. It's so much fun looking at different thought processes behind the words and the expressions. It's just fascinating to me. I did take Engli...

Hi Chandas, welcome!

I just joined here today myself, hoping to find new friends.

Your interests sound cool. I like psychology, biology, animation (I did some stop-motion movies when I was a teenager), gardening and some computer games.

Have fun here!

The north of Germany is closer to two seas - the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. (I live on the shore of the Baltic.) That keeps the climate milder in winter. Yes, the south of Germany is at a higher altitude, but I believe that has less of an effect, until you reach the Alpine Mountains. I have seen ...

Hi kitesandtrainsandcats, thank you for your welcome. The spelling is correct. :D Hi kraftiekortie, thank you. In university, I have read some Old English (Beowulf, if I remember correctly) and some Middle English (Canterbury Tales). It is similar to German but not close. Middle English is easier to...

Hi Joe, I'm an author and I have self-published about 20 books, with many more to come. Writing is an obsession for me. You have received good advice here already, but I will let you see my process to turn a manuscript into a book: 1) I write in LibreOffice. I saw you already have that covered, but ...
