I have been learning game for a few months now and I am pretty decent but with a massive SMV barrier i.e, I am ethnic brown and do not speak German. I feel like having a german buddy / group would remove much of the issue. My theory is that being seen with Germans removes the negative hit your SMV takes for being brown and most girls do speak English once they warm up a little. If any of you bros are up for it, let me know. We could hit the International Party on 20th Feb.
