American dating french woman

Rated 4.37/5 based on 588 customer reviews

Here in America we have a tendency to idealize the French, thinking of them as elegant beings who dress well, eat well, and have attained the ideal work–life balance.Ask any French person, and they’ll find this idea laughable and maybe even a little worrying—France has a myriad of its own problems, and this French “ideal” is largely drawn from affluent Parisians and not necessarily representative of the whole country.

Once two people kiss while sober (French teenagers drink a lot, as it’s legal), they can already consider the other one as their boyfriend/girlfriend, and assume the relationship is going to be exclusive — there’s no need to define it.The term ‘dating’ you use in the USA makes me feel that the whole thing is much more ritualized and structured there rather than fluid and natural.”So, where does that leave us?Perhaps the question isn’t whether a more fluid approach is but rather what we can learn from it.The slightly mussed-up hair and no-makeup, the give-no-f***s attitude toward basically everything—there’s a reason that, in the world of style, the French girl is considered the epitome of cool.Not surprisingly, that extends into the world of romance. We headed to Paris to find out how French girls really like to date.
