For the French, kissing can signify the beginning of a relationship.
If you’re going out with someone and kissing them, it means you’re in an exclusive, monogamous relationship.
If you’re on Tinder, you’re probably familiar with this thought process; this is generally my experience every time I open it.
While many on the app will never initiate conversation or will chat for awhile until one of you decides you’re not interested, the ones who want to see you will ask you out.
My friends and I have met many French men through Tinder, and thus have learned a few things about the dating culture as a result: If a Frenchman wants you, you’ll know it.
I always take care to clarify it with them now, though, after briefly dating a guy who was relationship-minded, about which I wasn’t fully aware until drunkenly asking him outside of a bar at 4 in the morning after we’d been together for a couple of weeks.
Yes, it was awkward and could have been avoided had we had the conversation earlier.
Obviously sex is an important factor of any relationship.
