France dating customs
If the sun is shining, tell him you’d love to take a walk along the Seine.Once he gets to know you better though, make sure you’re not doing all the deciding work.She soon came to realise, though, that this was oh-so-normal en France.When dating in any new culture that you’re not familiar with, it can understandably be daunting, especially if you’re speaking in a language that’s not your mother tongue.So, after another evening spent together where he cooked me a three-course meal in his apartment and still hadn’t made a move, I decided the next day to finally declare my feelings for him in a text, (because my little heart just couldn’t handle face-toface rejection).
Since she’d only known him for two weeks, she was naturally quite alarmed at how far they’d already progressed as a couple in his mind.
But what happens if you find yourself in a stalemate situation where neither of you is making the move to take your relationship to the next stage?
You could tell him that he’s great or that he’s nice by saying, ‘Tu es génial’ or ‘Tu es très sympa’, while brushing the hair away from his face… In a totally different situation, if he starts referring to you as his girlfriend after the second date, that’s pretty normal.
So, if you fancy going to the cinema, tell him you want to go to the cinema.
If you like a bar or café in your quartier, tell him to meet you there for a drink.
