A French guy’s group of friends are his backbone, and lacking their approval is as much of a dealbreaker as sexual incompatibility.Though most of the men I’ve met have been wonderful, the majority haven’t been looking for a relationship.
Obviously sex is an important factor of any relationship.Sexual compatibility is very important in French dating culture and will be one of the first deciding factors in whether or not the relationship will work out.Some French men I’ve dated have never been to the States and don’t understand American culture enough to understand where I’m coming from.When dating cross-culturally, not only do you have to get used to the norms of a new dating culture, but your partner must also adapt to the fact that they are dating a woman who has been raised to ascribe to a whole different set. This is why communication is absolutely the most important factor in the success of any relationship, especially one with a foreigner. A few of mine include nighttime walks in the rain along the Seine, being kissed on a bridge with the Eiffel Tower behind us, riding around the city on the back of a scooter, and strolling hand in hand on the love lock bridge.
Even if it seems like they’re not feeling it, it’s definitely possible that you’ll still end up having the romantic French encounter you’ve always (not-so-secretly) wanted.
Additionally, the younger they are, the less likely they are to be looking for something serious.
Of course, this isn’t to say that good relationships can’t be found via Tinder, in fact, I have several friends who are in serious relationships with French men they met on Tinder.
For those who are unfamiliar, Tinder is a mobile app for dating.
If you’re on Tinder, you’re probably familiar with this thought process; this is generally my experience every time I open it.
Here, if you don’t sleep with someone, they take that to mean that you’re not actually interested in them. Wait a bit if you want to make sure he’ll stick around, but don’t wait too long or your Frenchman will assume a lack of compatibility and find someone else.
