French dating culture men
I clearly married Robin in all his fabulous Frenchness, so while I could list hundreds of positive reasons, I’ll stick to 8 so you don’t conk out mid article :p 1 | Players Gonna Play I’m not a game player.
Some people live for the cat and mouse chase and it makes the reward at the end of the race all more delicious.
Communication Trying the silent treatment when you want to end a relationship or indicate that you are not interested does not work in France.
Failing to respond can sometimes be taken as a playful flirt.
They make consuming alcohol taste as good as a giant pixy stick at the fair when you were nine and French men have no problem ordering them too.
Don’t get me wrong, wine, beer, liquor, really all types of alcohol are popular in France.
The date The French dislike making a ‘date’ obviously romantic as it is all about courting, testing, and playful conversations.
It is not unusual for the words ‘je t’aime’ to come quite quickly but this really depends on the individual.
Turn up late This is all about not appearing too eager, and the French, and more specifically those from the South of France, are notorious for being late.
There is even a name for it – le quart d’heure de politesse!
Be clear and direct – the French are passionate people.
I recently wrote an article and filmed a video with my favorite Kiwi and “Not Even French” You Tube extravaganza Rosie about the things we wish we would have known before dating a Frenchie.
