Now, this seems rather serious WAY too early to an American, but it’s really not.If the kiss isn’t that good or the rest of the evening isn’t that good or whatever, he won’t contact you again (or you ignore him) and “poof” no more boyfriend.Editor’s Note: Over the past four years, I have practically made a (pro bono) career of analyzing the French and their laissez-faire stance on everything, dating included.
It's not a 'tie down' or a concept that you are automatically exclusive with a person.
In the States we discuss serious relationships after quite a few dates; kissing, affection or hugging are normal in dating..
I’m told that, in the early days, a Frenchman will contact you daily and, if he doesn’t, it’s generally safe to assume you’re no longer dating.
The French also don’t really “date” per se and, while I’ve had a couple of guys talk to me or want to “go on a walk,” I’m not really sold on the idea that this is how you meet nice French men.
If you want to go shopping, it’s no problem – he’ll show you the best stores & the colorful farmers’ market.
When you say the city is beautiful, he’ll tell you that you’re even MORE jolie.
As mentioned in a prior blog, a good guy will get to know you before taking you on a date – he’ll talk to you at a party, school, work, etc.
If he meets you in public, he’ll ask you to go for a walk (in public – nothing creepy).
You can have the vocabulary of Donald Trump or look like Steve Bannon and Quasimodo’s love child – it doesn’t matter.
You are, above all, a DINNER PROVIDER, destined to routinely nourish the female population of this country with overpriced sushi.
Having only lived here a total of four months now, I’m certainly still learning!
