Internet dating disadvantages

One other thing one needs to know when asking a French woman out. Of course, there’s a fine line between “several” and “annoyingly too many” borderline harassing, and this line will depend from one individual to another… How is this relevant for a foreign woman dating a French man?

Well, if you, the foreign – possibly American – woman, say “no” chances are that you mean “no” and if you the French man still insists, don’t get mad right away.

In France, it’s OK to offend people, or rather, it’s the offended responsibility to be offended or not, not the offender’s one.

So, don’t be afraid to be honest for fear of offending the person.

OK, it doesn’t work for everything (even in France, telling your girlfriend she looks fat in that dress is a big no no), but overall, French people are much more open and upfront than Americans.

Keep that in mind when you’re in a relationship with a French person, whether it is about what they say or about what you say (or rather what you don’t dare to say).

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.Even if things are far from perfect, they have a much healthier and more casual approach to sex.In France, there is no such thing as wondering after how many dates it’s OK to have sex, no such thing as “no sex on the first date, that means you’re easy” and so on…Also note that blind dates are almost non-existent in France.But also note that all of those things have been changing a lot in recent years because of internet dating that has become extremely popular in France, and especially in Paris. So if a French woman says no when you ask her out (or anything else), it doesn’t mean that she doesn’t want to go out with you, it means she’s playing hard to get, and you’ll have to ask several times.I say , because it’s really rare that the woman asks the man out in France. Please note that in France, you rarely meet your future date in a bar or a club… A big difference between both countries is the bar scene.
