Dating in america
We began the morning with a visit to the Louvre before stopping for ice cream and continuing to wander the city for hours, talking without interruption.Cliché, yes, but that’s how it goes a lot of the time in my home country — the country of passion and romance, where “La Vie en Rose” basically replaced the national anthem a few decades ago, and where pursuing love still means something to most people.That being said, if you’re in a big city, people aren’t afraid to stop somebody on the street or in a bar to get a number.
As I went to order a beer, he stopped me and said, “Wait, shorty.” To me, this sounded like the worst insult. I couldn’t help myself from overthinking and panicking a bit after a few months of dating someone here—something I never did in France. Here I’m afraid of discovering that after six months of seeing someone, we aren’t actually dating but just messing around.In France, if you do try out a dating website or app, it’s not something you brag about to friends or share with your relatives.It’s definitely not the accepted norm in the way that it is here — just one of the many differences I’ve noticed between French and American people’s dating lives.This is a reputation American men hold overseas that turns out to often be true—that they ghost, date many women at the same time and have commitment issues.I experienced it first hand with someone who kept telling me every day how much he loved me and cherished me until I found out on somebody’s else Twitter that he was a cheater.
