Effortlessly beautiful with an air of mystery and a touch of ennui, she trumped any It Girl America had to offer me. In a way, the French-woman stereotype feels like a modern-day fairy tale.
After consulting with many French friends I finally found out some major cultural differences between American dating and French dating.If someone is starting to touch, kiss and text a lot it's a sign that the French person sees you as more than just a 'date' and considers it a 'for sure thing'; as in they really want to be your boyfriend/girlfriend.A french person will not spend an enormous amount of money, shower you with attention and think it will go no where; also; while they are doing this- be aware they are not doing it to someone else. If you find yourself in the position where it's too serious from their end and you're not in the same place: stop giving affection. Don't go out with them alone more than once a week. express that it's a cultural difference and you enjoy being around them but you are not ready for a relationship. It's rare to have sex and not have it be something.Enjoy dating the French; for me they tend to be the most receptive and comfortable in a relationship.For those of us who enjoy the comforts of a relationship, they tend to develop quickly.It's not a 'tie down' or a concept that you are automatically exclusive with a person.
