Dating american soilders
“A lot of German women want to meet an American because they say they like the culture, the way of life, the music, being in the USA and the way they think American men are…They find a man in the US armed forces very attractive,” Dreyer explains.And that's where matchmaker Jessica Dreyer steps in.When Wiesbaden native Jessica Dreyer started working at the US Army Europe headquarters in her hometown, she noticed an interesting phenomenon.Fees for subsequent matches are then the same: €95.An important factor in the matchmaking though, is that the German will almost always have to speak English: her American clients rarely speak German well enough to have a conversation, if they speak it at all.For a city that has a long history with the American military, such pairings between American soldiers and German women are also perhaps not so uncommon.Wiesbaden was captured by US forces in March of 1945 during the Second World War, and remained under American occupation after the war's end.
And in her personal life, her female German friends inquired about the potential availability of any of her US army co-workers.

This is about dating and relationships, not about getting a green card or something.” To set up the matches, Dreyer meets with prospective clients in person to get a sense of who they are, as well as to ask them what they're looking for in a mate.
Business started to really boom after a few months when local media noticed the novel dating firm, and now she receives on average 60 to 80 new inquiries from Germans and Americans combined each week.
While she gets calls and emails from all kinds of people, including men seeking men and women seeking women, Dreyer says her biggest client base is German women seeking US military men and vice versa.
