The French have a reputation for being great lovers. They're sensual and seductive, whispering sweet nothings in your ear with a sexy French accent. They can properly romance anyone, or so they say, though some are dubious.
If you have never had the, let’s call it, pleasure of dating a Frenchman, you may not know that they are also very quick draws when it comes to love. I’m not talking about in the bedroom, I mean that they waste no time declaring their love.
You’ll hear stories of French guys who ask after the first day if you’re “boyfriends,” copain in French. Talk about fast. The idea of “dating” doesn’t really resonate with this culture. You jump into the deep end right away.
The expats in Paris share a common sentiment about this phenomenon which we sum up in one simple phrase – “zero to I love you in 60 seconds”.
Here are a few anecdotes that we have experienced and collected from others when dating the French.
If you have any stories of your own, please share them in the comments below. We’d love to hear them!
