Ask a frenchman dating
While I usually don’t subscribe to most stereotypes, there are always a few that are true enough to merit their labels. Playful—but always polite—conversations can be had between friends, between strangers, and even between married men and women with people who aren’t their significant other (gasp! In other cultures this may raise a few eyebrows, and tempers, but in France it’s just a conversation, there’s no strings attached. It’s more complicated than that, but that’s the most concise way I can think to put it.
Whether or not either of you abides by that is another argument entirely.
What this means for you: I mentioned before that French people don’t generally have “the talk” where the prospective couple decides if they want to be exclusive, so how do you know if you and your Parisian paramour are BF and GF? This doesn’t really happen in French dating culture.
If, during your courtship, you kiss on the lips it’s taken as a non-verbal agreement that you’re attracted to each other and are in a relationship.
Myth number 1: All French men are hot True, but only when they’re driving (hot-headed) - statistics for traffic accidents in France are off the scales, staggering. To prove my point, we need to look at some of the French idols, movie stars etc.
Let’s start with Serge Gainsbourg - an alcoholic, chain-smoking singer - who by his own admission was not exactly an oil painting. – he nonetheless managed to seduce the stunning Carole Bouquet and Karine Silla to name a few.
