English dating in france
Dickxhibitionists and lame pickup lines were coming at me fast. “Yes, we love crêpes.” “No, we don’t eat bread every morning.” “Nope, you won’t die if you eat some snails.” No matter whom I was matching with, the conversation became pretty identical, and I had to field questions like I was a second-grade teacher.
To my own surprise, I downloaded Tinder, after getting the sense that this was how it’s done around here.In response, I got the reassuring “No worries—I’m not a rapist” and a sarcastic “You’re such a nun.”For a (long) minute, I regretted downloading Tinder.This unashamed sexual pressure was completely new and weird.Meeting people in France generally goes by the old-school method: dating friends of your friends, my dear!
Most of the guys I’ve dated have already been part of my circle somehow — former classmates, roommates of a coworker, soccer teammates of a cousin, etc.That being said, if you’re in a big city, people aren’t afraid to stop somebody on the street or in a bar to get a number.
