Advice for dating a frenchman
Being married to a Parisian was a cultural wake-up call.New Yorkers seem to think—at least compared to the rest of the country—that we're more in line with the thinking of Parisians; but we're not.
At one point, as we paused to cross the street, Henri grabbed me by the waist and pulled me into him. You tell yourself you're the best at making love or giving oral, so then you are.
Before I could escape, he planted a very wet and very "French" kiss on me, as I struggled to get away. Papa, tell her."Here was a 17-year-old telling me the ways of love and sex, in front of her father, no less.
I began to apologize profusely to Madeleine."Prude," she said, laughing at me. When you love someone, you kiss them no matter where you are. Even now, as I'm about to be on the other side of 35, I can't talk that way in front of my own father.
We'll ask each other how much we pay in rent without the slightest hesitation, but dare to ask such a question of a Parisian and you're deemed rude and nosey, or simply very "American." to watch.
Or maybe if we make it through dessert in record time, we can get to the bar before last call.
