It is so funny to see how some social behaviors are exactly the same between France and the US, and others are completely different. Well, this was a big shock to me when I arrived in the US. I understood of course a man and a woman could be interested in each other in a romantic way, let me reassure you.One of the very obvious difference is the dating game. But I was not aware that accepting to go out to dinner with a man alone gave the signal that I was possibly romantically interested in him.
Maybe this is why French guys have the reputations of being so romantic, and… We trained them well (with some exceptions of course…pretty much every politician :-( Believe it or not, at the opposite of all the stereotypes, French people are much more about love than sex.Now, not everybody does that of course, some girls like to play, and sometimes lose themselves in the game, or hurt people. A Frenchwoman is expected to play her feminine side, and be “admired” for her beauty and wit among other qualities.Frenchmen like to flirt as well, even if they know very well there is no hope of it leading anywhere.Maybe that’s why things take a bit more time to develop in France – we like the game, and we like to take our time playing it.
It’s actually the first point they made in this video, which I really liked: I hope this article shed some light on the French dating system… Of course, this is only my opinion – please take it as such.
The study found that regions of Quebec has 112 meals (including dinner and dessert) per year, per capita, while Ontario consumed 57 meals, Atlantic Canada had 89 and the west coast ate about 55 meals.
“We’re certainly seeing influences of the well-known French European diet in French Canada, but with the demands of the western world, convenience is a key factor for Quebecers when preparing meals,” said Joel Gregoire, Foodservice industry analyst at The NPD Group in a press release.
Good luck with your studies and remember, repetition is the key!

It’s only in American movies that I found out about this “let’s be exclusive” concept.
