But what happens if you find yourself in a stalemate situation where neither of you is making the move to take your relationship to the next stage?
You could tell him that he’s great or that he’s nice by saying, ‘Tu es génial’ or ‘Tu es très sympa’, while brushing the hair away from his face… In a totally different situation, if he starts referring to you as his girlfriend after the second date, that’s pretty normal.
What about the rules of letting the man be the one to text you first? You can forget everything you’ve learned when you date a French guy, it’s a level playing field!
As well as having to be more decisive about where you want to go on a date, it’s pretty important that a woman does aide the man in doing some of the follow up work after the date.
Oh how different things might have been if I’d known then what I know now… You flirt, perhaps touch each other a little, (or, in my case, he brushed my leg with his foot under the table once, I blush thinking he’s outrageously flirting with me only for him then to apologise for accidentally kicking me.) Anyway, the chemistry is going wild yet he hasn’t made the move and kissed you.
If they’re attracted to you after date one, they kiss you on date two, you’re pretty much guaranteed to be locked in to being their girlfriend right away.
’ Well, of course, in an ideal world I want to answer that question by saying, ‘Let’s do champagne at Le Meurice followed by the Opéra, topped off with a horse and carriage ride that would leave me right at the foot of my door.’ Once my head stops spinning and I’m brought back to the present moment, however, I have once made the regrettable decision of simply answering, ‘Oh, I don’t mind. ’ My date then suggested going for a drink at a bar in Le Marais.
This sounded perfect until I Googled the bar and saw it was listed as, ‘Un établissement gay et lesbian’.
I suggest leaving the grand declaration of ‘Je t’aime’ for the man.
He will say it sooner than you think, since he probably already knows his true feelings for you after the first date.
If the sun is shining, tell him you’d love to take a walk along the Seine.
