Well, this is exaggerated, but it has been created by a French girl: so at least you can get the idea. Then turn your back on Wayne Rooney's casual style and embrace your slim fit suit and a nice pair of brogues.One of the biggest difference between French and English girls. Phone her or you will have to face criticism and reproach – by phone, of course -. Don't worry about penning her love notes worthy of Victor Hugo- you can, you will never get bad points for doing that, but the main thing is just to show that you're thinking about her. I know it's uncomfortable, but nothing comes from nothing, so just do it.
It's not being patronizing, it's called being a gentleman, and this is what French girls want their dates to be.
And after 'the date', once you are going out with her (let's be optimistic) : forget all your shyness and your shame because French girls love PDA.
I definitely love the idea that I could become a sort Champollion of Franco-British dating.
The truth is that when you ask a French girl out, her answer will not mean what it is supposed to mean. When asking.....' Do you want to have a drink / go to the cinema with me?
In France, courtship is a must, you can't behave boorishly.
