You know what's on the mind of every single Muslim refugee, fleeing their war-torn home countries in search of salvation in Western Europe? Hooking up with ladies, DUH!
Oh, wait, no.
As Germany plays host to more than 1 million Muslim refugees, 27-year-old German dating coach Horst "Mr. Flirt" Wenzel is doing his darndest to help Muslim refugees find love in their new home with a series of classes called "How to Fall in Love in Germany." I'm going to give Wenzel the benefit of the doubt and assume he genuinely does want to help people. I'm also going to state what seems to be fairly apparent: This guy's a goof with zero understanding of multiculturalism.
While most bits of "Mr. Flirt" tips are pretty nauseating and weird in general, here are some of our favorites.
"THE APPROACH: If you see a woman you like, don't ask her if you can talk to her; just do it."
Yeah, especially if she's wearing headphones. Women LOVE for you to approach them on the street or on public transportation when they're trying to live their own damn lives.
"SEX AND LOVE: It's OK to have sex on the first, second or third date; sex is no big deal in Germany. But don't tell her you love her for at least three months. German women can't stand clinginess."
ANYTHING GOES IN GERMANY! YA HEAR THAT?!?!?!
It's not the desire to find romantic love that's so cringe-worthy; it's the fact that this guy is giving out bad information. To make matters worse, Mr. Flirt's atrocious, borderline-predatory advice is being peddled to Muslim guys who legitimately would like to integrate into a new place. These men are seeking help of all kinds as they get situated and comfortable. This, of course, includes finding love. And everyone should experience that!
"It's hard to meet a girl when you don't speak the language well and can't really talk to them," says 24-year-old Omar Mohammed. "There are a lot of differences, not only the culture and religion -- we just don't have this total freedom at home."
And now Mohammed's got Wenzel as his guide, taking guys out on the town to meet and talk to women in real-life settings.
Unfortunately, Mr. Flirt's dating advice probably isn't going to serve these guys… because his advice is terrible. But it is nice to see Muslim refugees wanting to integrate and create stable, happy lives for themselves in a new place. Which I'm sure they'll be able to do… as soon as they can shake Wenzel and his crappy insights.
