Dating french women in london
I didn’t expect living in France to be easy when I moved to an isolated smallholding in the Limousin from London via Baltimore, six years ago. My cultural experience of the country amounted to just one week’s skiing and a day-trip to Dieppe.I was a city girl adrift in the countryside, without so much as a pair of wellies to my name.
And now there’s Comme une Française (Like a Frenchwoman), a glossy online compendium in which a daunting young businesswoman, Géraldine Lepère, 27, seeks to help foreign women feel happy and bonded and fluffy in France, by blowing the lid off the secrets of the sisterhood Française.
She told the Sunday Times this weekend that her son and niece had warned her to be careful around 'Martin' but she ignored their advice.
It was her first attempt at internet dating after her husband died three years ago, and she hoped she could find love again after two of her friends had already found it online.
That said, some of the difficulties I encountered took me by surprise, most of which could be summed up in just two words: French women.
So yesterday, when the Telegraph unveiled yet another French woman full of well-meaning advice about how to do everything better – in other words, more like the French – my first response was to roll my eyes.
