For many years I've been fascinated with the subject of American women who prefer Frenchmen only, even to the point of shunning men who are not French in the dating world.
I recently learned from various sources that the case of American women dating French men is far from rare.
From what I've noticed, many of these women like to emphasize the fact that their sweethearts are French, and I'm especially in awe of American women who have been lucky enough to qualify to marry them.
I reccommend Polly Platt's book "Love a la Francaise".
I ordered mine from and it goes into the whole history of what makes the French irresistable to some Americans in the area of "l'amour".For some reason the author doesn't delve into the French-American alliance of the Revolutionary period as the beginning of what inspires actual romantic preference for French.I looking to find out if we are suffering from cultural misunderstandings or it is just not meant to be.For example, we do not speak very often in between dates.
For Ella (and any other American gals here who are dating a Frenchman), Are you interested in French guys because of being interested in France or is it the other way around?
Me, I've been sadly disadvantaged in that department because where I live isn't exactly abundant in French visitors or inhabitants, and unfortunately I've never been in the position to travel to France.
