A spin-off from "Why French Women Do Not Ask Men Out?"

A while ago, I answered the question “Why French Women Do Not Ask Men Out?“ But there was one comment that I never published. Why? Because I thought it deserved its own post. Yes, it was that good and that interesting. So here it is: Febehlat said: “Even though this idea came into context quite a few centuries ago I believe that certain things often integrate themselves into society so much that people do not even realize that they are [Read the rest]

Do French men really find American women fascinating?

(asked by Patricia from somewhere – I guess the US) Do French men really find American women fascinating? Ah American women! The object of fascination of all Frenchmen!!! Or are they? Well, first I guess we need to define “fascination.” Personally, I always found mole rats to be extremely fascinating if you see what I mean. I guess we need to separate two things here.

(asked by Madeline from somewhere) While with a cab driver in Paris I stuck up a conversation about French men and monogamy to which he replied: “There are two women for every Frenchman but it’s great because half the men are gay so it’s four women for every Frenchman!” I wouldn’t have doubts for any other reason other than he was the most creepy man in the world and had a strange fascination with murder. So Madeline, if you were [Read the rest]

(Katie S. from Stanford, CA but currently in France) I am an American student living in France – from Paris to Arles to Marseille to Strasbourg. I have found that everywhere I go, French women are cold to me – especially, but not exclusively, if I am dating a guy that they know. Could you explain why?

(asked by Linda from Brno, Czech Republic) Well, well. It’s pretty hard to reply properly to this question. First because I’m not a woman. Second because of the language we’re using right now.Strangely the English language, so rich in vocabulary, really sucks when it comes to friends.There is only one word: “friend” to express a vast variety of relationships from vague acquaintance to somebody you’d give your life for and love more than anything on Earth (you’re just not having [Read the rest]
