Welcome to Germany
MEET5 EXPATS REVIEW
Meeting new people made easy!
Diego, 27, used Meet5 for a few months now.
Let's read what he has to say.
Diego moved to Frankfurt and he didn't know many people. Today it's different. Thanks to Meet5, Diego is now connected and he feels very comfortable in Germany. Have fun reading!
My very first Meet5 date
As the day of our spontaneous date was approaching, I was excited and intrigued by what could happen while meeting 5 strangers 😱. It was my very first date via Meet5, and since we agreed upon an English group date – or that they could at least support me with my broken German – I was excited to go there, enjoy some typical food from Hessen and meet new people in the city.
Thomas and Frank work in business and Law respectively, and Franzi and Johanna were working together at the same Marketing agency. Laura joined a little bit later (she works as a Manager), because she had to stay longer at work to “solve some situation”, she said.
Feeling lonely? - Get out of your comfort zone and take the initiative
When you are new in a city, I believe the best thing - and what most people advised me to do - is to get out of your comfort zone, take the initiative, and approach the unknown with motivation and happiness 😊thats what I did. Our group date was scheduled for Thursday afternoon at 7 pm (cool thing about meet5 is that you'll get a reminder about the time and the location, so you won´t forget your date) at the restaurant Apfelweinwirtschaft in Sachsenhausen. The decoration and service were at its best – and of course the Apfelwein from the region: Sehr lecker.
What I like about this group date and about Meet5 in general and why I will make this life experience a part of my weekly schedule, is that the App allows you to meet new people in a relaxed environment, that you can find out a little bit upfront with whom are you meeting with and that by being in a group date, you get to know each other slowly – which in the end is the best way to create a great connection afterwards.
Meet5 became my weekly routine
I was also happy to realize that I enjoy sharing my time with others and try out different types of food and restaurants - or just sharing some activities outside, escape rooms and laser tag, which is why I decided that this will become a part of my weekly routine.
“At least one Meet5 date a week”, I told myself after my conversation with Franzi. We talked about different travel destinations and why the best sunset is the one that you can share with someone, her plans for next summer and why she likes to meet different people from different backgrounds and nationalities.
Johanna was a little bit shy and quiet at the beginning, but that was just my first impression which rapidly changed - as the conversation developed, she was nice, and I liked her tone of voice and the way she talked.
Back then, she told us that she has been in Frankfurt for two months and wants to have more friends and maybe find true love by meeting someone in person, and not just writing and writing without any end in sight. I also believethat Thomas was a very nice guy. He has been living in Paris for two years, and he offered me help with searching for a apartment. We decided to meet next week with Franzi and Thomas and go for a run along the Museumsufer and then I will be in Berlin next week for a conference. I will for sure have a meeting there… want to join?
