Americans dating the french
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.

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.
You see they don’t lies beneath the surface of the elusive French male? I’m surprised they don’t pop out at birth bearing gifts - Flowers, champagne and candles along with a manual on foot reflexology.
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.Once upon a time (when I was into detail) I used to correct him.
