Tips for dating a frenchman
Instead they’ll text you and say they’re around the corner right now and ask if you want to come down and get a drink.
Of course, this means you have to look fabulous all the time, just in case. When French men like you, they’ll make sure you know it.
Often stereotyped in what the French man is supposed to be like, there are a number of myths I’d like to examine under .
Myth number 1: All French men are hot True, but only when they’re driving (hot-headed) - statistics for traffic accidents in France are off the scales, staggering. To prove my point, we need to look at some of the French idols, movie stars etc.
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).
What’s more, the irreverent troublemaker spoke openly about his addictions, burnt cash on television programmes and thought nothing of recounting his sexual adventures with underage girls. That’s right, some of the worlds top beauties lined up in droves to be with the anti-hero. Kind of kooky, with wild unkempt hair, and a three-day growth, the unlikely screen idol, Romain Duris is the latest because of his acting ability. These men are far from being the prize catch in the looks department, so what is it about them that makes women swoon? Myth Number 2: French men know how to dress Ok, there are basically 3 different types of French dude.
Ok, so let’s summarize our case study as being provocative, talented and yet vulnerable. In my opinion, the interesting ones, like the artists etc dress in a pretty grungy way, and look like they picked up the first thing they found on the floor that morning - or got dressed in the dark (more likely).
I’m not sure where all the excitement stems from but maybe, just maybe there’s a grain of truth here somewhere.
And even though I’m writing this from the perspective of someone who’s lived in France for the past 3 years - and also from the point of view of being married to one of these fascinating creatures, I promise I won’t be too biased, ok?
