I knew two French guys in friends’ circle who both were married and were cheating on their wives, both were very nonchalant about it, one said because it was ‘a family tradition for many generations to have a wife and a mistress’. I’d run honestly. Cousin married French guy, was abusive and a cheater, she divorced him and is now very happy with another French guy.

Yes hahahha

I had my French boyfriend read these comments and he cracked up. He says it’s possible that the French cheat more often than others but that he’s shocked at these stories. Now I’m so curious and will have to ask his family what their experiences are too lol

Well, sounds like everyone was pretty surprised. They say they knew these things happened but that these anecdotes make it seem more common than they thought 🤷🏻‍♀️ Makes me feel even luckier that I got one of the good ones lol

GREAT for hookups. Super romantic. Maybe even good if you get off on being the other woman. Not so great if you want something serious/committed/monogamous.

And yes it’s “mind blowing sex” for a reason! 😂😂

Did not know this stereotype about french guys but all these anecdotes are eye opening!

I think the french just in general have very different (vs American) views of romance, marriage, and monogamy. Broadly speaking my French friends (all genders, mostly from University) were very laissez-faire about their partners seeing other people or if they saw other people especially when they were abroad. So be sure you're on the same page about that. It's not a mindset I can buy into

I have 2 French guys friends. Both married. Both cheating on their wives. Both have expressed an interest in sleeping with me. They’re good at flirting. One of them likes to play those mind games where he’s hot one day and then ignores you/ won’t respond for days. The other one is on dating apps. Personally, I wouldn’t date a French guy ( based on my sample size of 2). They’re just not people I can trust for long term relationships.

Say it louder, I don’t know if they heard 🥲 two groups of men who will speak POETRY just to get you vulnerable and then disappear at the first feeling of inconvenience

Have worked with a bunch, dated one. For many they are much like American guys in that it's a mixed bag. Since are great, some are ok, some are f-boys. What is a huge red flag 🚩 is if they come from the real upper crust. I've known some guys that were in the Dominique Strauss-Khan set, and they were cheaters/harassers/etc.

My partner and I had an unplanned pregnancy a couple years ago. I was always very pro-choice, but when it came to me, I couldn’t go through with abortion. He really didn’t want to be a father, and was v angry. He committed to stay, but it is over a year post-baby, and we haven’t been intimate since our son was conceived. He told me last night that he doesn’t know if he can be intimate with me again, bc I broke his trust by keeping the baby, and if it were to happen again, he wouldn’t survive.

Anyone here work for a partner group that doesn’t seem to understand the business model of our own industry? Since last year we’ve split into teams to establish continuity at all levels, yet our industry isn’t set up economically for people to stay in their positions forever. Had a meeting with partners today and left like “you guys know a lot of this is your own doing, right?” Doesn’t help that they purposely overstaffed for this and are now wondering why they’re about to have a loss 🤦🏾‍♂️
