Americans dating the french
From what I've noticed while examining the tastes of the American expatriates who live in France, American women interested in French men far outnumber American men interested in French women, and you don't have to be a historian to figure out why.
The instance of French men willingly reciprocating this is nothing short of startling to people who think the French of today are "supposed to" look down on Americans.
Let’s start with Serge Gainsbourg - an alcoholic, chain-smoking singer - who by his own admission was not exactly an oil painting. – he nonetheless managed to seduce the stunning Carole Bouquet and Karine Silla to name a few.
He habitually made fun of his much prized, exaggerated features, his nose, his ears, referring to the thing that balanced on top of his neck as a ‘cabbage head’. Just ask the likes of Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin. Then there’s Daniel Auteuil and the 10-year relationship he had with Emmanuelle Béart? (Ok, he’s also a movies star but apart from that there’s nothing to write home to mom about).
The women are comfortable in their bodies, which automatically makes them sexier. They’re confident and know how to carry themselves and unlike some other cultures, there’s more of a relaxed feel about their hair and makeup.
Usually the men make the first move in asking you out on a date. And one thing’s for sure, if the men are doing it, the women are doing it too. My husband makes a lot of mistakes when he speaks English.With one of my husband’s friends, you’d be lucky to get peanuts if you pop in for an . Off course, there are always exceptions to this rule (but you need to be lucky to find one). Everywhere else in the world there’s this about looking not a day over 30 - not so in France, where older women are admired and thought of as sexy.Myth number 5: They strictly inspect your weight and expect you to be thin. But to better understand the French male, one must look at the French woman. In France you’ll frequently spot a woman in her 60’s and 70’s showing off her svelte figure in jeans, miniskirts and high heels. To be fair, European women are no strangers to plastic surgery and botox, but they are not as obsessed about eradicating their wrinkles as some of their sisters in other parts of the world - preferring to let nature take its course and to concentrate instead on preserving their silhouettes via exercise and a sensible diet.Myth number 3: They have a good sense of smell I read somewhere that in terms of perfume, the French are skilled like no other in determining what is what. One thing’s for sure…as far as aftershave, the men (and women) either do too much or nothing at all. Most artificial perfume/aftershave is a chemical nightmare, but that’s another article.
Myth number 4: They can all cook I’ve met men here who basically exist on a diet of BBQ meat and fries. Mom did the cooking and just because most of their mom’s are sensational cooks doesn’t mean they are.
Fundamentally, the world is much rounder than we think and people are pretty much the same all over.
