A bit late but well...

Since I have a lot....A LOT people from the UK watching me...I just wanted to ask what you guys are thinking about that decission?
Have you voted? And if you did, was it for stay or was it for leave? And most importantly....why?

I am really sad about that result tbh, but I'm very curious to here something from actual affected~

EDIT:
So, today we talked about the Brexit in our language course and my professor made this whole Brexit scarier for me. She said: "This will affect not only the UK but also Europe. Especially everyone who are going to make English to their profession - like you guys. All the erasmus projects, just to give an example, are governed by the EU. So If you are planning to go to study somewhere in the UK, you should do fast. Furthermore, there are 3 main languages in the EU, those being German, French and English. Now that the only English speaking country is about to leave, they are talking about getting rid of one of the main languages and you can guess which one it will be..[...]" and much more horrofying things. Please you guys...don't let this happen! :<

Voted remain. As a young adult I didn't want even more uncertainty in my future. I think this is the same for a lot of people I know irl. The older generation voted leave, seemed mostly fuelled by "older generation thinking" or basically, racism thinking "they took our jobs/they take our benifits." Or at least what a lot of my family were voicing. The whole thing has kind of separated my family between the younger and older generations and I have a large catholic Irish style family. So it's a big divide

Wow, that just sounds just horrible....some news here in Germany also stated what you...well just confirmed. Ya know, after the Brexit was decided I heard alot of the Germans....and that's what frightens me most...younger generation (at least via Facebook and so on) want's to leave now as well. But on the other side...we seemingly  have a lot of uneducated people here because hustles against the refugees is still a thing here as well. I never saw it directly, like out on the sreets, but the internet apparently is full of them. Just hope nobody else will follow the UKs example AND I hope that petition will offer you guys to vote again, hopefully with a better result!

I'm hoping for a second vote too. Scotland is also in a way for a second Independence vote as the main reason it won was EU membership was threatened during this campaign. Problem with that personally is I'm moving to England in a month! Haha, timing. 
So fingers crossed on that 2nd EU ref vote and that no one follows this example, immigration can't be stopped by trying cutting yourself off and you shouldn't believe anyone who says they can stop it.

Oh yeah...that really is what one is calling...timing...even bad timing if they get the Brexit through.

We finally talked about this at university. After both my Literature and my Linguistics Professor didn't talk at all about it, my Language Professor finally addressed the topic before she startet with the actual session. Aaand well she had nothing better to say that it will affect everyone within the EU, especially those who made or will make English to their profession. That was very....encouraging.....not. So I hope there will be a second vote :(

Well hopefully even if it does it's not as bad as it first sounded, still bad though. The guy running it has turned around and said he can't/wont stop immigration for various reasons. 
If nothing else this has fuelled some leaver voters to want a second vote too, since it was basically false promises for the people wanting to stop immigration completely. 
It's still not fantastic that this is all happening but hopefully it won't stop people who want to come to the UK from coming.

I voted to remain, I must admit I'm frightened, I don't know what to expect when we leave.
I felt very secure in the EU... Iunno >.<

Yeah, I actually would be too. And...I actually am even though I'm German. I think this will also have an impact on the remaining EU countries...

Well tbh I am not THAT politically engaged to know all of the benefits (or drawbacks) being part of EU has, but I do know, that we are a part of it, is, like you said, something safe. What I know is that it is about standing united and strong, herlping the weaker Countries. The last part is what many Germans see as drawback due to the fact that we are one of the strongest Country within the EU and we are like always the first to support the others. And as we do so by first and foremost giving money, I think is the reason that we have alot anti EU here, too. And of course the EU wide struggle with the masses refugees who want our (the EUs) help. But for me none of this would be a reason to leave the EU. Times are hard know, but there also will be better times ahead!
