French in london dating
Well, if you, the foreign – possibly American – woman, say “no” chances are that you mean “no” and if you the French man still insists, don’t get mad right away.
He’s been trained to behave like that by French woman, and he’s just thinking you’re playing hard to get and/or you need convincing. I’ve noticed that in an American woman’s mouth “I don’t know” often means “no” and “maybe” often means “yes”.
Keep that in mind when you’re in a relationship with a French person, whether it is about what they say or about what you say (or rather what you don’t dare to say).
Well, the main advantage is that things are more “natural”, people tend to follow more what they feel and less what should or shouldn’t be done.
With that being said, I know you’re all dying to know the rules of dating in France… Well, that’s not exactly true, but let’s say that there are much fewer rules than in many other countries, especially the US (as usual, I’ll compare mostly to the US, partly because this is the foreign culture I know the best, partly because most of the readership is American). Asking someone else out in France is not that different from many other places I guess.
Actually, the very concept of dating is not very clearly defined in France. It mostly consists in saying “Would you like to [insert something about dining, going to a movie or similar activities here] together?
Sometimes, people, especially when they’re drunk, will kiss for whatever reason.In France, if a guy calls a girl a lot, it means he cares. For her there was one possible explanation: he didn’t care about her.Yep, this is how French women are, and as a consequence, this is how French men (that have only dated French women) will behave too.” You usually ask this to the girl after you’ve known her a little, having met her at work, school, through common friends, etc.
I say , because it’s really rare that the woman asks the man out in France. Please note that in France, you rarely meet your future date in a bar or a club… A big difference between both countries is the bar scene.
But also note that all of those things have been changing a lot in recent years because of internet dating that has become extremely popular in France, and especially in Paris. So if a French woman says no when you ask her out (or anything else), it doesn’t mean that she doesn’t want to go out with you, it means she’s playing hard to get, and you’ll have to ask several times.
