French dating etiquette
French dating etiquette - dating friendship ua
The French have been and are today world leaders in fashion, food, wine, art and architecture.
In the States we discuss serious relationships after quite a few dates; kissing, affection or hugging are normal in dating..
*note: This only applies to the 'true French'; meaning those who were raised in France.
Also, it does not mean 100% of what I say is correct.. * In America Dating is considered a sort of test, a prerelationship try period in which you go out, get to know the person.
If someone is starting to touch, kiss and text a lot it's a sign that the French person sees you as more than just a 'date' and considers it a 'for sure thing'; as in they really want to be your boyfriend/girlfriend.
A french person will not spend an enormous amount of money, shower you with attention and think it will go no where; also; while they are doing this- be aware they are not doing it to someone else. If you find yourself in the position where it's too serious from their end and you're not in the same place: stop giving affection. Don't go out with them alone more than once a week. express that it's a cultural difference and you enjoy being around them but you are not ready for a relationship. It's rare to have sex and not have it be something.
Enjoy dating the French; for me they tend to be the most receptive and comfortable in a relationship.
For those of us who enjoy the comforts of a relationship, they tend to develop quickly.

However, if you are someone looking for multiple dates and don't want to be tied down, it could prove to be frustrating; you have to handle it from the beginning and be honest... As a Warning The French can be sensitive on this subject, if they are dating you and believe that it is something special then it could be disastrous.
