But that is what it's like in dating most Frenchmen. This sounds funny, but on occasion I have had my picture taken by men on the street, and once in an art gallery. Their excuse for the most part was "Oh I thought you were so Beautiful I had to take a picture." One said, "It's okay, I'm French." Like if he were German it wouldn't be okay, but since he was French I should just excuse him for his behaviour.
I am an American woman married to a French man, and we have a child together.
They are described as being like something out of a beauty pageant.
They seemingly have no risk of their guys cheating on them and these guys are apparently not the type who prefer women of their own nationality.
It may have been because we both were busy people and worked during the week, but the normal day to day chit chat, or text messages were saved only for the weekends. I grew up with brothers and a strict father so I have to draw boundaries.
We kind of fell head first into the relationship without thinking. I was dating this one french guy who liked to feel me up in crowded places. It really depends on the person but Frenchmen, especially the older ones, have a fine appreciation of women, particularly beautiful women.
Polite French men will be glad to meet you at their home land.
