Dating french man dating a man in the military
Those I’ve had the pleasure of meeting seemed less guarded than Americans.
Of course, everyone has a fear of rejection or hurt, but it doesn’t seem to be a factor that hinders a French man from taking the relationship to the next level.
The deep conversations first came as a surprise and I thought the person I had just met was maybe a bit dramatic or strange jumping into conversations of that depth.
But it is an aspect that I now quite enjoy about French culture.
Although I continue to witness the somewhat stoic personal emotions in French men, they still show that they care rather than having no emotion at all.
The US “indifference” can be translated into the French “emotional upset.” This isn’t necessarily a teary-eyed emotion but they let you know that seeing that other person does bother them, which really signals that they care.
An example of this is when I first started dating my boyfriend.
I accidentally dropped one of my sweaters on the floor, and being the “casual American,” expected to leave it there until later.
There is no need for tickets to the gun show or the basketball game because we feel their “strength” through the way they hold and respect themselves, as well as us.If you no longer desire to see the other person, then you leave the relationship. Why spend time projecting expectations before experiencing a relationship?The French are not afraid to open themselves up to emotional connections with others.Manners are a core part of French culture and this carries over into dating.Generally, French citizens pride themselves on their hospitality and politeness.
