This stems back to the unparalleled pride that the French have about their country.They truly believe that everyone should speak French and that France is the best nation in the world, and they can’t believe that anyone would think otherwise.So, if you fancy going to the cinema, tell him you want to go to the cinema.
After many dates turning sour or crushes who disappear seamlessly into thin air, I’ve been educated on what to expect when you’re dating native French men. I’d spent my whole life believing it was the man’s decision to say where we should go, what we should do.
I’ve been left speechless when I’ve been asked before several of my dates, ‘So, what would you like to do?
By the time a British man would have taken you out for dinner, you could have been on a minibreak with your French boyfriend, and met his mother.
That muddy period when you’re not sure how serious he is will be rapidly cleared up after you’ve been dating a French man for a week, by which time he’ll have begun referring to you as his girlfriend.
Do get ready to hear “Je t’aime.” As French men are fast moving in relationships, you could be dating one for only a few weeks before you hear these magical words.
And after they’ve been said once, expect to hear them several times a day.
’ Well, of course, in an ideal world I want to answer that question by saying, ‘Let’s do champagne at Le Meurice followed by the Opéra, topped off with a horse and carriage ride that would leave me right at the foot of my door.’ Once my head stops spinning and I’m brought back to the present moment, however, I have once made the regrettable decision of simply answering, ‘Oh, I don’t mind. ’ My date then suggested going for a drink at a bar in Le Marais.
This sounded perfect until I Googled the bar and saw it was listed as, ‘Un établissement gay et lesbian’.
Bad news if he belongs to the tribe of baggy linen pants and ribbed turtlenecks. You’ll have the pleasure of explaining particularly American concepts such as Snooki, Shamu, Spring Break, Texas and Pizza Bites. He’ll comment on your outfits (positively) and discuss style in general more than an American boy might. He’s probably well-traveled considering that living in France allows you the advantage of hopping over to Italy or Spain for a weekend. Unless he magically learned English from watching episodes of : Angry/hungry, happiness/a penis. He’ll probably do all he can to give you respect and treat you like a princess.
I tend to find these confused moments to be hilarious and endearing.
While British men are renowned for their aloof nature, and the Americans are juggling girlfriends, French men can come across as extremely keen.
