Her independence should not be regarded as a sign of dissatisfaction.
Do not be surprised that French women are confident; the confidence is usually well-founded.
Only a man with matching intelligence and charm would be noticed by a French woman.
What might be considered romantic, attractive or polite in one culture might not be well received in another.
To help you get a clear insight into the French way of dating and being in a relationship, here is some useful advice.
We can be sometimes intense, and sometimes light-hearted. We want you to commit to us, and if you don’t we might emotionally blackmail you. We fight with our own weapons, and you don’t stand a chance. You are in for a passionate journey -now you are warned.3.

Call it old-fashioned, call it sexist, but we expect the guy to be in control. Because, truly, we want to feel special in your company, and that’s what kindness does for you.
