Hot french girls dating problems with radioactive dating methods
You need to be aware that the French often talk indirectly, in complete contrast with the more direct American way.
Let’s stereotype a bit and ask for the salt: US: “Salt, please.” UK: “I’m terribly sorry, but I wonder if you would possibly allow me to ask you to be so kind as to pass me the salt, please.” France: “I’d say a bit more salt would perhaps have brought out more of the flavor in this dish.” The French will not always tell you in direct terms what they want.
Don’t try to wiggle out of a debate that is getting too complicated for you with a silly joke or pun as you would in a British pub. What I just said is indirect language for ‘avoid humor until you understand French humor, whatever that is.’ I’m still not sure after 14 years in France.
The French tend to take things more literally and seriously, and will not catch British subtleties.
France is one of those countries everyone has an opinion about, and which has spawned many stereotypes: the French are eternal seducers, lazy, speak only French (so fast that no one else can understand it), and drive like the Italians, just to mention a few.
