International dating in france
I am an American in NY who has been dating a French man for about 5 months now.
He is very kind hearted and we have a nice time together, but lately I have been wondering about things.
If you just met at a party, well, you kiss, and things evolve naturally.
When they spend time alone together, the girl and the boy don’t go out for dinner, they just go for a walk or chill at home, which is really different from the formal dating process I see in American movies. We don’t ask people out, especially if we don’t know them well.
Furthermore, French teenagers keep their relationships very private.
The privacy of teenagers’ relationship is noticeable when you walk in Paris streets: You will rarely witness two young people show a lot of affection for each other. The French language doesn’t make a difference between “like” and “love” (the verb for both is ), which makes it very easy to avoid the whole “I love you” drama that exists in America.
