pretty much every politician :-( Believe it or not, at the opposite of all the stereotypes, French people are much more about love than sex.Sex is not taboo in France as it is in the US, and it is much more present in humor, art, tv and everyday life than in the US…
Frenchmen like to flirt as well, even if they know very well there is no hope of it leading anywhere.
The game is the main point, it’s relatively innocent and usually no-one gets hurt, just a little blushed :-) With kissing hi and goodbye being the standard and French women being more “flirtatious”, it can be difficult for foreigners to correctly read a French woman’s body language.
But when she set up the site and invited people to register she was surprised to find that the idea appealed to people of all ages “I was surprised to discover that there is no predominant age group of English speaking people living in France”.
Katie advises that the site is as much about making friends and opening up your social life as it is about dating and meeting a partner. Often expats have “similar experiences and problems, it really helps to share these with friends who understand the joys and difficulties of living here…” Katie says that the site has been a “complex business to set up – having an interactive site where people can join, upload photos and profiles, send messages, make searches, see who’s around, who’s visited and what’s going on – has not been easy.
But thing’s never remain the same and sadly I lost my husband three years ago and found myself a widow.
