Dating a french woman
As a French woman living in London, I read Ed Cumming’s latest piece about our apparent preference for British men with great interest.Though I have to admit that it is factually correct – at least judging from my group of friends – the reasons he gave for why we’d rather be dating specimens from your side of the Channel couldn’t be further from the truth.Another frankly outdated cliché playing in our favour is our apparent God-like knowledge of food and wine.Given that for most of the people I’ve met here, anything that doesn’t taste worse than vinegar counts as decent, my very vague ability to match a certain meal with a certain wine has baffled more than one. We French don’t have a dating process, with rules about what you can or can’t do at each specific date. One of my most read posts happens to be ‘how to date a French man‘, and several of you have asked me to write something similar on French women. So brace yourself: here is my checkered advice on how to date French women. French men are known for their smoldering good looks and great romance, and in Paris it’s easy to fall in love 10 times a day: he might be sipping a café noir in St.-Germain-des-Prés, ambling through the Jardin des Plantes or reading Sartre on the metro.
They usually expect a certain level of culture and, therefore, you need to be aware of current cultural events.
To help you get a clear insight into the French way of dating and being in a relationship, here is some useful advice.
