Rules dating french guy
One of the more fascinating cultural differences between French and American dating is the complete lack of “stages.” To clarify, there’s not a lot of time devoted to getting to know the new person.
Anglo-Saxons tend to “date” before entering into an intimate relationship, meaning commitment and expectations of the future are not clearly defined.
Although I continue to witness the somewhat stoic personal emotions in French men, they still show that they care rather than having no emotion at all.
The US “indifference” can be translated into the French “emotional upset.” This isn’t necessarily a teary-eyed emotion but they let you know that seeing that other person does bother them, which really signals that they care.
The deep conversations first came as a surprise and I thought the person I had just met was maybe a bit dramatic or strange jumping into conversations of that depth.
But it is an aspect that I now quite enjoy about French culture.
I would say no, but I’ve only really dated three French guys who all share similar qualities and characteristics.Something else I really admire is the Frenchman’s ability to show strength and masculinity inadvertently and to express emotion and sensitivity freely.Many American women in their twenties can easily identify the type of man who cuddles with his muscle milk at night.It’s often expected to fill someone else’s water glass along with your own and attentiveness becomes second nature at a young age.You do this at dinner with friends and you do this at dinner with “un ami.” These small gestures really do make a difference when displays of thoughtfulness could mean a future partner that is attentive to another’s needs.
