how dating works in china - Few days ago, as an american friend of mine was telling me all about her new boyfriend and how he had asked her out with flowers, i realized how different courtship and dating is for teens in france and the us. They spend time alone together, the girl and the boy don’t go out for dinner, they just go for a walk or chill at home, which is really different from the formal dating process i see in american movies. French language doesn’t make a difference between “like” and “love” (the verb for both is aimer), which makes it very easy to avoid the whole “i love you” drama that exists in america. The boyfriend/girlfriend gets introduced to the family only if the couple has been dating for a few months, and we usually don’t talk about our love life with our parents.
