Cultural differences dating french
It's not a 'tie down' or a concept that you are automatically exclusive with a person.
In the States we discuss serious relationships after quite a few dates; kissing, affection or hugging are normal in dating..
It's also the easiest way to keep from getting into a 'relationship'.If someone is starting to touch, kiss and text a lot it's a sign that the French person sees you as more than just a 'date' and considers it a 'for sure thing'; as in they really want to be your boyfriend/girlfriend.A french person will not spend an enormous amount of money, shower you with attention and think it will go no where; also; while they are doing this- be aware they are not doing it to someone else. If you find yourself in the position where it's too serious from their end and you're not in the same place: stop giving affection. Don't go out with them alone more than once a week. express that it's a cultural difference and you enjoy being around them but you are not ready for a relationship. It's rare to have sex and not have it be something.Would you buy a pair of pants without trying them on?Why agree to a relationship when you don't even know the person? would you give your keys of your car to someone you just met? So why would you give the exclusivity of yourself after two dates?
