It took me a few years to catch on to the games, word play and innuendo, but now I can joust with the best of them and as a result have passed hundreds of fascinating and amusing moments sparring with the masters of the class.
Here is a sampling of the reasons why they are so much fun. . .
TOP 10: Reasons Why I Like Frenchmen:
1.) They genuinely like women.
2.) They listen.
3.) They ask questions and are interested in the responses.
4.) They're impeccably polite and respectful (even when they're not always PC).
5.) I love the way they dress either country casual or business serious. (Business serious often includes a jaunty pochette, beautiful cuff links and a witty cravat.)
6.) They invariably smell delicious.
7.) They freely give compliments and I believe they are always sincere. As My-Reason-for-Living-in-France says: "There is something beautiful about every woman." He's proved to me how true that is.
8.) Some know how to cook extremely well and a few even clean-up after.
9.) They pour the wine.
10.) They are arguably the world's best flirts and they make it a fun repartee. It is never vulgar.
