Differences between french american dating culture
Beyond what I just mentioned, I think the French standoffishness is a way for French women to keep that sense of being inaccessible precisely to be more desirable.That behavior can be summed up by the French saying that translates to, “Follow me I will flee, flee from me, I will follow.” As a consequence, French women can often appear vain and haughty, carrying a I’m-too-good-for-you-face.I have to admit that I was surprised that American women (at least for the one I know best!haha) don’t wear the same style of lingerie as French women.It’s tough because as I said in the disclaimer, it’s related to my personal experience, and most of all, because Diane is American, and considering that aside from her and her family, I don’t know any American women well.But I’ve visited many times and watch a lot of American TV, so I’m qualified to answer although I’d better watch what I’m going to state here!!!Ok, well, it looks like I’m buying some time here with justifications, so finally, here we go: I think that the thing that struck me the most about my interactions with American women was that I’d generally find them warmer than the majority of French women.I’ve been able to speak to American women in some situations where I’d never have ended up talking to French women I think.
First and foremost, I want to sincerely thank my husband for taking part in this series. In case you missed it, I’ve written before about how to look French, but reader Rayni has the following question for Tom: This post reflects only my opinion which is based on my own experiences.At some point we started talking about the future of our relationship and Diane told me that we were doing nothing more than dating up until that point (although we both weren’t seeing anyone else and clearly wanted to be with just each other, yet didn’t say it).That was really surprising for me, because in my mind we were more than just dating — we were partners and had been for a while, so I was almost shocked by what I heard — that to her, we were just dating. Curious minds want to know what French guys think about all kinds of things, so today, my husband, Tom, is kicking off a new series called The Frenchman speaks: Ask Tom Tuesdays. I’m often asked what my husband thinks about American culture, food, the people and more.
