Americans dating the french
Given the great Victory at Yorktown as the most glorious manifestation, Gallic charm to Americans is its own symbol of why we have Americans dating and especially marrying French as considered the extreme of Francophilism in American culture.
It's obviously contrary to the trend of French-bashing.
From what I've noticed while examining the tastes of the American expatriates who live in France, American women interested in French men far outnumber American men interested in French women, and you don't have to be a historian to figure out why.
The instance of French men willingly reciprocating this is nothing short of startling to people who think the French of today are "supposed to" look down on Americans.
Direct Some may misconstrue this as being rude, but I find it refreshing. I understand that some people are shy when it comes to anything involving the opposite sex, but it certainly helps when at least true of all men around the world.
Usually the men make the first move in asking you out on a date. And one thing’s for sure, if the men are doing it, the women are doing it too. My husband makes a lot of mistakes when he speaks English.
Political Incorrectness They smoke, they ogle, they wolf-whistle and dare to cross some lines of what is considered polite and correct public behavior. Give me an Alpha Man (without the steroids) We like them because they’re not the macho, pumped-up-with-weights type, rather, the macho type who’s not afraid of women. The joy of life or ‘being in the moment’, whatever you call it doesn’t matter, but yeah, I’m afraid the French pretty much patented that formula.
There is an award-winning American-made independent film called "Broken English" that demonstrates this in the form of a love story that takes place first in New York and later in Paris.
This movie might as well be a DAR promotional tale except for the fact that the American woman in the story does not fawn over and pursue the stunningly handsome Frenchman at first until after he has wooed her to initiate the relationship himself.
It's no myth that these exceptionally fortunate women acheive them based on alot more than just their extraordinary (female) endowments and a cute coincidence of knowing French as a second language or at least being willing to start learning it.
This cult within the world of dating and romance, disregarding the current political climate, puts a premium on strictly French national origin to match the heritage of the woman being American.
This is so much so that one could surmise that a pure French nobleman of today who takes preference for American women automatically qualifies to marry a female descendant of, for example, one of the signers of the Declaration Of Independence, and vice versa.
