The French, incidentally, don’t linguistically fob off their slobberier makeouts as an import.
They have various expressions for the act; rouler une pelle — to turn the spatula — is particularly popular.
I am an American in NY who has been dating a French man for about 5 months now.
He is very kind hearted and we have a nice time together, but lately I have been wondering about things.
“The American game of seduction is like military strategy, and it makes mincemeat of any innocent, lighthearted European daring to set foot in the land of pragmatic romance.” Dating, French language sources say, is every bit as bad as American TV series have led the French public to believe.. May the advice prove useful to those attempting to date à la américaine, and for Americans — who really ought to discover how other cultures see their romance manqué.
The man, also pretending to be busy and not desperate, will generally follow a “three-day rule” in waiting to text the woman for a second date.Word games and "the silent treatment" when something is wrong don't work with a French partner; he often prefers a direct, more passionate approach.In France, women expect men to initiate the relationship.The man-meets-woman language in France represents a major cultural difference for Americans.When a man asks a French woman out and she says no, he might recognize this as a form of coy flirting and the desire to be pursued.For Ella (and any other American gals here who are dating a Frenchman), Are you interested in French guys because of being interested in France or is it the other way around?Me, I've been sadly disadvantaged in that department because where I live isn't exactly abundant in French visitors or inhabitants, and unfortunately I've never been in the position to travel to France.When social encounters with foreigners involve romance, your cultural makeup can trip you up if you don't know what to expect.The French, for example, have a different attitude toward relationships and finding a partner than Americans.In America, this is categorized as 'He's just not that into you..' What is typical behaviour after dating for almost 6 months?Does anyone have insight or experience in dating the French?
