Perhaps it's just the charismatic magnetism that seems to follow the French around wherever they go.
Whatever it is; French individuals have a nice niche in the United States as uniquely appealing people, and dating among French Americans is admired by pretty much everyone, save maybe those envious Americans who wish they had a French lover themselves. You can use their advanced search to view photo profiles.
I also received a call asking that we change our meeting place from a caf I know many expat women living in Paris who have met their match online.
And I know even more who have used it as a way to meet people before coming on holidays.
The United States has always had a bit of a fascination with the French.
It turns out Anglo-Saxon ladies are a much-sought-after exotic on the Parisian dating scene. Finally, I learned that no one ever uses a real, recent photo of themselves.
Take what your date says, assess the words, and give a relevant response designed to impress her with your intelligence, as opposed to the more American philosophy of taking what your date says and trying to fire something back that will, most importantly, make her laugh.
Subtlety and sarcasm, especially if you can give it a satirical edge, can make a French woman swoon if delivered well.
I didn’t meet the American expat from Neuilly who called saying he’d be there an hour early, asking if I minded joining him so we’d have more time together…
And oh, by the way, he’d brought along his 7-year old daughter and 5-year old son. There was an Eastern European Mafioso who showed up in a huge, black Mercedes, his biceps larger than my thighs, followed by a communist who hated anyone with money and was horrified by my Burberry trench.
French women are notoriously confident and don't tend to take on the submissive nature employed by some women of other cultures.
