French culture dating
I know that this sounds completely counter-intuitive, but it works.
“It's pretty appealing to watch a French man study a wine menu like most American men read the sports page,” admits Tamara. Before finding love in France, Abinet felt lucky if a guy stuck to a plan for a date.
The dates he's taken me on are much more 'cutesy' than what I previously expected from a man,” she shares.
From ice skating on top of Tour Montparnasse to a picnic on a rowboat in the lake at Bois de Boulogne, Abinet’s boyfriend has definitely topped all of her previous date experiences.
There’s nothing more awkward than trying to have “the talk” with a French guy that you’ve been seeing for a few months, because he’s probably assuming you’re monogamous.
This means the French will spend more time exclusively getting to know one person, instead of constantly comparing him or her to other options.
