Then there is very fine sarcasm, only indicated by the tone of voice and choice of deliberatly highbrow words, probably hard to spot for a foreigner.

Lastly theres, hmmm i dont think there is even a word for it, Word-humor, although that is quite a regional thing. However, German humor is probably less cruel then american, and its definetly not a cultural trait to be mean to your woman. Theres been women who loved me for making fun of them, but i am pretty certain that it was never cruel or downputting.

Don't worry about it too much - it's the cultural difference. Also, don't bother changing him - it doesn't work. As for the bills, in my experience, German guys liked paying for things. I think doing so makes them feel manly. Having said that, it is normal for German guys to split things up. I like the system that they've got goin' on.

If it really bothers you though, you could always talk to your man about it and work something out together. No, this isn't a Bavarian thing per se, it could well be the workings of an insecure person clipping your heels and finding an excuse for his behaviour.
Teasing would be fine if you both did it, and teasing can be an art form - just watch someone like Harald Schmidt interviewing someone, but the fact is that you are not comfortable, he knows you are not comfortable and yet he keeps on doing it. What does your stomach tell you? Do you feel that you are overly sensitive? Taking turns is more usual than splitting every bill. Actually I'd be uncomfortable for that to be different, he's a boyfriend not a meal ticket and I'd feel kind of grasping to expect someone to pay for me all the time.
So that could be a cultural expectation on your part. I know several German guys that behave that way, both towards their friends and their gf though I also wouldn't call it "typical behavior" of German men, certainly not. All of them are very decent and kind people at heart which is probably why their gfs put up with it, even though they certainly seem to dislike this particular trait. I think that in the end, it depends on your assessment of his personality, i.
It also depends on how he behaves towards you when is not trying to be "funny". Have you tried talking to him about it? Strange to find myself agreeing with PB but he hit the proverbial nail on its proverbial head. My Bavarian ex-husband realized that I was earning more than he was, had more friends and a better relationship with our children so he used every opportunity available to call me stupid for no good reason. He did it just once too often.

So do you guys earn the same amount or does he earn substantially more than you??? Well, there is also that whole Mars Venus thing.
That is an even bigger problem. Generally I'm with eurovol here.

I am a german man, btw. German actually, Bavarian man. He also tells me that it's typical for the man and woman to split everything evenly.
First off, welcome to TT! And now back to the matter in hand: The former Herr Indoors was from Bad Reichenhall. He's finally got a new girlfriend, she's an Erzieherin - that quite amused me. Maybe its the younger guys that seem to like paying then? Problem solved- get a toy boy! Have I learned it wrong?

I'm from Uk married almost 19 years to a Northern German girl From friendships nothing more with US girls I can say there were great cultural gaps there which I didnt find with my Hamburg girl She says she sticks with me because she doesnt understand my jokes At least I know when to stop telling jokes in contrast to my brother Its difficult to remember back that far but I believe when we went out we took turns to pay for the meal - rather like Standord tells.

In many respects Germans can be considered the masters of planning and logistics, as they tend to be very detail-oriented and, perhaps, perfectionists. There is a strong separation between work and personal life, though you will still be filled with a sense of security that is an essential element in a strong and enduring relationship.
