1.It’s all about the food
A good restaurant is an optimal first date territory. But the most direct way to a French woman’s heart is to offer to cook for her.
2.Accents are sexy
As a foreigner you have an advantage – providing you make the effort to speak French. English men, in particular, don’t realize how cute French women find their accent.
3.Go for a classic French look
Observe how your French friends dress and do the same. Iron a nice shirt and wear some well-cut jeans with leather shoes.
4.You can never pay her enough compliments
‘Vous êtes ravissante, mademoiselle’ can be quite effective.
5.Don’t get drunk
In France, you will never see people drunk on the street, and they generally only drink at mealtimes.
6.Get the present right
It’s always a good idea to buy her flowers. She won’t appreciate chocolates because she won’t want to get fat. And save the lingerie for much later in the relationship.
7.Pay for everything
The man should always pay, especially at the beginning.
8.Don’t be too keen
The man should always ask the woman out, but only after she’s made it clear that she’d like to go out with him.
9.Normal French people don’t have secret affaires
Don’t be fooled by the cliché of the adulterous French man or woman.
10.There are no rules
We don’t follow strict dating rules here, as so many people do in the US, for example.
