American girl dating french boy
Tom is the only French guy I’ve ever dated, so I had it easy when it came to the whole French dating game. Our relationship developed from genuine friendship and wasn’t rushed or forced.
If someone you are dating in France is being very reserved with touching, understand that it's a respect.The “rules” and differences between French and American dating culture are definitely there, but if you don’t know about them, you might end up hurt and confused or leave someone else feeling that way.So here’s a handy guide on some of the things you need to know about dating a French guy.Would you buy a pair of pants without trying them on?Why agree to a relationship when you don't even know the person? would you give your keys of your car to someone you just met? So why would you give the exclusivity of yourself after two dates?They are getting to know you as a person, not you as an object.
It's also the easiest way to keep from getting into a 'relationship'.
then you can present the person as your boyfriend/girlfriend.
Finding the Inbetween Finding a balance between these two cultures tends to be a challenge; my recommendation when dating French people is to explain up front what the deal is with Americans.
If you’ve found a keeper, want to test the waters, or are just curious…
When Tom and I first started dating, I didn’t know any of these French dating rules and found them out after or through others who were dating French guys.
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.
