Dating rituals in france
Taking a cue from the French and not overthinking our dating habits might be a good thing, particularly if you feel stuck in a dating rut.
Sometimes in our tendency to overanalyze and our haste to label things, we can stifle a potential romance and prevent it from flourishing.
On the other hand, there are some undeniable differences between our two cultures, and the cliché of the French as a uniquely romantic nation isn’t completely unwarranted.
“You’d think, after a first kiss, that there were only two possibilities,” says Mourad Zeggari in his blog entry on dating in the United States.
“Parodoxically, in this clearly monogamous context, it’s not cheating to have various overlapping romances during the dating period,” says Terrafemina.
