French dating culture and customs guardian healthcare liquidating trust
Years back how dating life in France (Paris to be exact) is very different from that of Americans: In America/where I am from if a couple meets and likes each other they arrange a date.
The article I read says in Paris one dates by going out in a group..
Even when family members do move to the cities you will often find their ties to “home” are still very strong.
The Irish have a reputation for their wit and humour – which they call having ‘the craic’ [pronounced crack].
When they are just a dating and not a couple they can still see other people and kiss each other/whoever they like.
They go on several dates until they finally decide they like one another enough to be a real, monogamous couple.
If you go on a date, or two, on your own, the person will expect from you a conclusion very quickly: do you like me or not, do we go to another date as a couple ?
But it will never be more than two dates, or the person will feel you’re making a fool of her. If you do, you make sure before that you person you’re with is fully okay with it, and it’s something that you “share” : you can both do whatever you want.
We’d rather be with the person and see if it’s fine as a couple, than start to know each other first and be a couple then. Indeed, to kiss someone means that you give your heart to that person and it would be very… But if you don’t talk about that to the person before, this will cause an inescapable break-up.
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.
