It is the case with any rule, but even more so with dating, especially because too many people assume that dating is .With that being said, I know you’re all dying to know the rules of dating in France… Well, that’s not exactly true, but let’s say that there are much fewer rules than in many other countries, especially the US (as usual, I’ll compare mostly to the US, partly because this is the foreign culture I know the best, partly because most of the readership is American). Asking someone else out in France is not that different from many other places I guess.To which he responded that Americans were careless with the word "love" and used it too frequently.He also brought up how he was hurt by the way I occasionally thanked servers at restaurants with "Thank you, love," as I would say to a friend who passed me the salt at the dinner table.I say “the country you’re in” and not “the nationality of the person you’re dating” because I believe that, at least in the beginning, you cannot assume that a local will know the dating rules in your country; on the other hand, if you are the displaced one, you may already know all too well about this little thing called “cultural differences”.Here I’m assuming that one of the two persons involved is a local.
