Do french men dating black women
In terms of the number of cigarettes smoked by each adult per year, Serbia comes out the champion with 2,869 followed closely by Bulgaria with 2,822 then Greece with 2,795 and Russia with 2,786.
We could go and on but we wouldn’t see France until rank 59th. Compared with the top ranks, it’s considerably lower which means people should just stop caricaturing the French people as the epitome of smoking public.
Another frankly outdated cliché playing in our favour is our apparent God-like knowledge of food and wine.
Given that for most of the people I’ve met here, anything that doesn’t taste worse than vinegar counts as decent, my very vague ability to match a certain meal with a certain wine has baffled more than one.

Sure, some French men are perpetual smokers with a cigarette always on their hands, but that doesn’t justify the stereotype that majority, if not all, French men are heavy smokers.In 2013, cigarette sales dropped by 7.6%—that’s about 4 billion less cigarettes than the previous year.The significant decrease is attributed to French turning to electronic cigarette smoking instead.I’ve also had several friends who’ve cooked some fairly unremarkable dishes for lovers, and were incredibly amused by the torrents of compliments they got in return.
This may be because we are twentysomethings – and I do hope that it will get better with age – but in the meantime, this has proven to be a great ego boost.
French men come off as rude not because they are inherently that way but because of the language barrier and cultural differences.
