I’m not sure where all the excitement stems from but maybe, just maybe there’s a grain of truth here somewhere.And even though I’m writing this from the perspective of someone who’s lived in France for the past 3 years - and also from the point of view of being married to one of these fascinating creatures, I promise I won’t be too biased, ok?Once upon a time (when I was into detail) I used to correct him.
Myth number 1: All French men are hot True, but only when they’re driving (hot-headed) - statistics for traffic accidents in France are off the scales, staggering. To prove my point, we need to look at some of the French idols, movie stars etc.
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.
Myth number 3: They have a good sense of smell I read somewhere that in terms of perfume, the French are skilled like no other in determining what is what. One thing’s for sure…as far as aftershave, the men (and women) either do too much or nothing at all. Most artificial perfume/aftershave is a chemical nightmare, but that’s another article.
Myth number 4: They can all cook I’ve met men here who basically exist on a diet of BBQ meat and fries. Mom did the cooking and just because most of their mom’s are sensational cooks doesn’t mean they are.
