Dating a frenchman in america
After summoning my friends to a crisis coffee meeting, where I had to tell them about what had just happened to me, my friends explained I had, in fact, told him that I liked him a lot – but as a friend.
One of my friends even likened saying ‘Je t’aime bien’ to something you might say to a sandwich. In England, if you told someone you liked him or her a lot, you would have been declaring some pretty strong romantic feelings for that person and would most likely be holding out for a future relationship with them.
When dating in any new culture that you’re not familiar with, it can understandably be daunting, especially if you’re speaking in a language that’s not your mother tongue.
But, when you say it ‘en français’, it doesn’t quite translate as you’d like it to.
In other words, if you tell him ‘Je t’aime bien,’ your love interest isn’t likely to be making your relationship ‘Facebook official’ anytime soon.
It will be more satisfying for you when he dreams up a fabulous idea for a date because he knows you would just love it.
What happened to waiting for the man to contact you after a first date?
