Here, if you don’t sleep with someone, they take that to mean that you’re not actually interested in them. Wait a bit if you want to make sure he’ll stick around, but don’t wait too long or your Frenchman will assume a lack of compatibility and find someone else.
One thing I’ve found when dating in Paris is that if he’s even remotely serious about you, you’ll meet his friends early on.
For those who are unfamiliar, Tinder is a mobile app for dating.
If you’re on Tinder, you’re probably familiar with this thought process; this is generally my experience every time I open it.
When dating cross-culturally, not only do you have to get used to the norms of a new dating culture, but your partner must also adapt to the fact that they are dating a woman who has been raised to ascribe to a whole different set. This is why communication is absolutely the most important factor in the success of any relationship, especially one with a foreigner.
Additionally, the younger they are, the less likely they are to be looking for something serious.
Of course, this isn’t to say that good relationships can’t be found via Tinder, in fact, I have several friends who are in serious relationships with French men they met on Tinder.
For the French, kissing can signify the beginning of a relationship.
If you’re going out with someone and kissing them, it means you’re in an exclusive, monogamous relationship.
I’m swiping right just to see if he swiped right on me too.
