Olivier trusts me, and we both trust our friend(s), who would never make a pass at me.
I guess it’s much more accepted in France for men and women to be friends.
One of the very obvious difference is the dating game. But I was not aware that accepting to go out to dinner with a man alone gave the signal that I was possibly romantically interested in him.
Nor did I know about this first date, second date and third date business.
I did the same thing as a girl, talking about my boyfriend (actually existing or not) early on in the conversation. And some people are just not faithful, but contrary to popular opinion, it’s not worse in France than anywhere else (and several studies demonstrate it). It’s in our genes and it’s socially accepted in France.
" banter where neither one of us has any clue as to what the other is saying.
Take it as flattery and be forward right back; the initial moments of uncovering a mutual attraction are incomparably enjoyable.I love my job and i love spend time with people i love. It is so funny to see how some social behaviors are exactly the same between France and the US, and others are completely different. Well, this was a big shock to me when I arrived in the US. I understood of course a man and a woman could be interested in each other in a romantic way, let me reassure you.Maybe it's the “language of love” accent that everyone seems to woo themselves over, where British accents that make Americans think of Harry Potter or Scottish and Irish dialects which derive thoughts of leprechauns and Braveheart don't have quite the same effect.Perhaps it's just the charismatic magnetism that seems to follow the French around wherever they go. My friends and I have met many French men through Tinder, and thus have learned a few things about the dating culture as a result: If a Frenchman wants you, you’ll know it.
