I hope this isn't too personal of a question but has your boyfriend attributed your American-ness to what he finds attractive about you?

Carolyn I am an American girl and I have dated my share of Frenchmen.

I'm sure there must have been a few, if not several single colonial patriot gals falling in love with handsome French troops who came to help us win the war for independence.

For many years I've been fascinated with the subject of American women who prefer Frenchmen only, even to the point of shunning men who are not French in the dating world.

I recently learned from various sources that the case of American women dating French men is far from rare.

But that is what it's like in dating most Frenchmen. This sounds funny, but on occasion I have had my picture taken by men on the street, and once in an art gallery. Their excuse for the most part was "Oh I thought you were so Beautiful I had to take a picture." One said, "It's okay, I'm French." Like if he were German it wouldn't be okay, but since he was French I should just excuse him for his behaviour.

I am an American woman married to a French man, and we have a child together.

So, I don't believe there's something wrong with how all French men handle American women, or any other race for that matter. He works to pay everything so that I can stay home and raise our son.

I think regardless of what part of the world you're from, love is love. He always spends quality time with us, showing how much he loves us and wanting to take care of us. Even though there is an age difference he tries his best to understand where I'm coming from emotionally.

I ordered mine from and it goes into the whole history of what makes the French irresistable to some Americans in the area of "l'amour".

For some reason the author doesn't delve into the French-American alliance of the Revolutionary period as the beginning of what inspires actual romantic preference for French.

A fancy party put on by a French-related organization or club, for instance?

Was you knowing the language a factor in what got your boyfriend interested?
