Out of curiosity, do you think there is a certain kind of social environment that's necessary for an American woman to come in contact with a (single, unmarried) Frenchman who happens to be in America?A fancy party put on by a French-related organization or club, for instance?I recently learned from various sources that the case of American women dating French men is far from rare.
But whatever you do, do not go out with wrinkled shirts. French guys know how to make it work on any budget and everything is pristine and put together. Having a family home in France for the past 17 years and dating in both countries this is what I have found in the dating cultures.
I am sure this might piss off some men reading this or name calling to the writer but this is my opinion.
I believe the guys in the States could learn a thing or two from their counterparts from across the pond. Maybe it’s my generation, which is X, but the conversations surrounding my girlfriends is where has all the romance gone? I am not talking about big gestures, small ones count for a lot. Writing a note, making dinner, picking a flower along the road, going on long walks in the rain, yes this is romantic and has happened to me! It’s the small gestures that make her feel special which equates to romance. On the flip side as a woman dating a frenchman you are made to feel that you don’t have to play games either. Sleeping with them on the first date is not the nail in the coffin like it is here in the States.
Should we say the Frenchman have that certain Je ne sais coix? It’s all over the media and unfortunately part of our pop culture. Women especially are made to feel awful unless they are 33 years old or younger. Part of this is being chivalrous, which has gone missing too. Last year I went out on a lot of dates and not one guy showed a romantic gesture, they also lacked chivalry.
The men I’ve dated in France have never asked my age, they don’t care!
I once asked a man I was dating there why this is and he explained to me that it is considered rude and it’s irrelevant. Me, I've been sadly disadvantaged in that department because where I live isn't exactly abundant in French visitors or inhabitants, and unfortunately I've never been in the position to travel to France.For many years I've been fascinated with the subject of American women who prefer Frenchmen only, even to the point of shunning men who are not French in the dating world.Well, they have something and dudes all over America should listen up and take notes! We constantly see headlines, “How does it feel to be 40? ” Turning 40 means you’re over the hill in the United States! The dating scene in America doesn’t help with the issue. ” Online dating sites don’t help the matter either. Friends who are happily married have complained about the lack of romance in their relationships. Putting a little more effort in the romance department will pay off in dividends dudes… Frenchman can also be amazing lovers, but that’s a whole other post. Game playing is so exhausting that I am sure both parties don’t want to participate but it happens. I will wait three days to contact her, no complements because I don’t want to get her head to get too big, no weekend dates, can’t meet my friends or family because I don’t want to give her the wrong idea. Guys master the game playing when it comes to dating. You have to reveal your age and give an age range of what you are seeking. My experience in France is the men do not care how old you are. When you’re married to a French man, you marry a man intrinsically tied to his culture and country. So be ready for an entire new world to open up before you, and be prepared to sharpen your wits and tongue at the same time.
