We would exchange messages on Facebook until one day he caught me off guard.
I'm not one to keep quiet so I gave him the cultural differences talk right away.He wasn't too happy about it and started advising me to "take more risks." He also told me to open my heart and how cold I was which didn't sit too well with me which leads to the next topic, rejection. When a French guy is in love, sometimes he can become quite obsessed with you.I swear only 10 minutes went by before the guy started telling everyone that my friend was "the love of his life." After that night he thought that they were officially a couple which was certainly not the case and getting him to stop pursuing her was quite a task.If affection translates to exclusivity, then don't even think about having sex with someone unless you plan to being in a relationship.I can recall seeing these types of guys at the Eiffel Tower a lot.
It would usually be like 3 sleazy French guys and 3 American girls.
Yes, if a guy asks you out for coffee chances that's a "big deal" type of date for them.
The French consider informal dates such as coffee or lunch a lot more serious than Americans.
As I previously mentioned, in the American style of dating kissing or hugging is completely acceptable and normal. As soon as you kiss someone he will assume that things are serious and that you are exclusive.
The French don't have the "let's become exclusive" talk, they just assume things are. One kiss can lead to a whole lot of drama if you kiss the wrong guy. She kissed the French guy she was crushing on when she was drunk.
It was pretty obvious what the guys motives were judging by their body language. They would serve the girls more and more wine but they wouldn't drink nearly as much.
