There are exceptions, but in general, French men like to keep their independence.Things will be slightly different if they’re both foreigners in a third country.Knowing these local rules is of an utmost importance.French men have very good taste in women, and they really know how to seduce. Don't be surprised that the French usually do not date.Actually, in their language, the word for a date is which literally means 'meeting you'.French women are independent; it's in their nature.
Let her have the space and independence that she requires.
It is the case with any rule, but even more so with dating, especially because too many people assume that dating is .
With that being said, I know you’re all dying to know the rules of dating in France… Well, that’s not exactly true, but let’s say that there are much fewer rules than in many other countries, especially the US (as usual, I’ll compare mostly to the US, partly because this is the foreign culture I know the best, partly because most of the readership is American). Asking someone else out in France is not that different from many other places I guess.
The dream of every foreign woman, and a few gay men too… Do you simply go to the country, you meet the man, and there you go? Everything in our lives is influenced by our cultures. I say “the country you’re in” and not “the nationality of the person you’re dating” because I believe that, at least in the beginning, you cannot assume that a local will know the dating rules in your country; on the other hand, if you are the displaced one, you may already know all too well about this little thing called “cultural differences”.
One big mistake a bunch of people make when dealing with love and relationships is to assume that: Wrong! Ignoring the dating rules of the country you’re in will cause trouble and failures in your dating attempts (yes, I’m sadly talking from experience here, Jennifer, if you read this : “sorry, I misunderstood a few things back in 1998”).
They usually expect a certain level of culture and, therefore, you need to be aware of current cultural events.
