Default How many Germans here are with an U.S.prisoner?

Hey lovely women!
I´m new here - and...yes, with an U.S.prisoner!
Unfortunately I´m from Germany, so the States are not round the corner!
I´d like to know how many other Germans here are in a relationship with an U.S.prisoner!!!
Maybe we could become friends - share experiences ect.!!! It would help me A LOT!!!

This forum doesn't seem to be frequented a lot...
Care to change that?
Anyway, I'm new here and recently got into an MWI relationship with an US prisoner... Good to know I'm not alone!

For those of you far from Germany, may I offer you television links from back home. I speak German but I am not German. You can watch video segments if you look around Tagesschau.de. Der Spiegel also has video stories online as well as Die Welt. WDR has podcasts of most educational shows at I think podcast.wdr.de. I watch Spongebob in German with my daughter on Youtube, or better known as Youboob. Ha, ha. Make sure you search with "Spongebob" and " Folge" together so you know it will be German. Same goes for any other show from back home. I have watched Küstewache too. You can find video for most other major languages too. Interesting that you cant often find episodes of show in the English language because of copyrights. But I guess they figure since everyone in Germany pays for their Television subscription, there isnt any financial loss. I think Comcast has a German satelite package too, but it is an extra $25. I just buy used German films on eBay and Amazon, because those subtitles make perfect practice. I loved Vitus, The Tunnel, The Lives of Others, Bye bye Lenin, and As Far as My Feet Will Carry Me.

Sorry to hear it. I know how tough that can be. Although you may feel far removed, you can listen to Schlager-Hits online from Radio FFH if you google it. They also have an app for Droid and Iphones, but on Iphone I selected the station from the Tunein Radio App because it worked better. I even run German Popmusic through my truck stereo with one of those radio fm transmitters that adapts to an Iphone. They have them at truck stops and Walmart. But enough wonky stuff. Just thought it could give a person something fun to do.

Wishing the best
