    Though I am happy to see this story,what happens to Eduacated ,American black women who live in Germany. I did and there were no groups where I could date, socialize. Many women I met collected marriages like passports to be allowed to stay in Germany. Where is the support for 1st world black ,educated women in Europe?

  2. Hi Sandy, sorry to hear that you didn't have a good time when you lived in Germany.

    It's up to us to make the best of our lives wherever we are.

    Did you join any social clubs for Americans like Democrats or Republicans Abroad, American Club, American Chamber of Commerce, etc.? That's what I did in Brussels and Sweden as well as making friends in the work place or when I studied.

    Did you participate in any activities that you like, take German classes, etc? Everyone's experience is different, and I chose to jump in and get on with things. I was miserable my first two years in Brussels because I didn't get out there and meet people. I listened to the warnings from the US Embassy advising Americans to lay low.
