Each time I bring up this subject on Instagram, you are many and many to respond! How many times have I heard people especially women telling me that it is difficult to find love in Canada especially in Toronto which is one of the biggest cities in North America and that they are considering returning to their homeland.
Things happen faster. The other option is the well-known, and more or less appreciated, friends with benefits relationship. A relationship based solely on sexual relations where neither of the protagonists expect more.
Well, in reality there is often one of the two who gets carried away and wants more, but on paper it works like that and the rules are established beforehand. American-style relationships are much more codified. You have to go through the dating process. Because, yes, we date several months, without being exclusive, continuing to go shopping from right to left until the big moment: THE TALK.
The conversation that makes the couple official. Remember in the TV shows when Brandon asks Brenda if she wants to be his girlfriend? Or when one of them asks: What are we?? In practice it can take several months, we often hear between 3 and 6 months of dates before being official. There are a few other little things that I think are important to point out to try to be as close to reality as possible:. First of all, the explosion of dating applications that certainly allows the shyest people to gain confidence and to launch themselves in front of their phone before the physical meeting, but which reinforces this idea of consuming relationships.
We choose who we like from a catalogue, through a few photos, a few traits, a job, while talking to 45 other people at the same time. Nothing very personalized, no real chance to know one person more than another. I know it works for some people and good for them, but I find that most of the time this access to always more impoverishes the quality of the relationships.
In the United States the 24th season began last January. I remember I was shocked that he would kiss several girls and then ignore them without getting in any trouble. I know, having experienced it but also having heard you say it dozens of times, it is very destabilizing. Not that we complain that we are no longer harassed by disrespectful guys who use flirting techniques that have never had any success in the history of mankind, but we have to get used to this new life without any surprise seduction.
Several things explain the behaviour of these gentlemen. Men are therefore much more cautious and clearly on the defensive and leave little room for the spontaneity that we Latin people are used to. The second thing is that the ladies here are not always very cool and a bit aggressive when a man dares to offer them a drink in a bar for example. In short, a scalded cat is afraid of hot water, little guys. Some answers are not necessarily related to our nationality but rather to the fact that we are not Canadian and that we are immigrants here.
See we are having so much fun around here! In my large discussion panel composed of my friends, a few of my Instagram followers and myself, we all agree that it takes someone who is open-minded and curious enough to move forward together. Living the life of an immigrant is difficult at the social level, I have already talked about it several times but social life is a complicated stage in Canada and love relationships are no exception. You also have to keep in mind that for us who have been here for a few years, we have had time to familiarize ourselves with the local culture, whereas someone who comes into your life may be starting from scratch with French culture.
And I think we can unanimously agree that our culture can be a bit intense at first once they have tasted our bread and cheese they forget everything promised ahah. To sum up, in North America, they plant different seeds to see one grow, having the status of boyfriend can take months, in France, we invest ourselves early to give every chance to the relationship to work, we quickly call boyfriend.
Explain things that you have always seen and never questioned. I wish you all to find someone who is curious, open-minded and above all that this person is French, Canadian or other, that he or she will make you laugh and cry because it is the universal language!

North American dating American-style relationships are much more codified. There are a few other little things that I think are important to point out to try to be as close to reality as possible: First of all, the explosion of dating applications that certainly allows the shyest people to gain confidence and to launch themselves in front of their phone before the physical meeting, but which reinforces this idea of consuming relationships.
The notable differences between the couple in France and the couple in Canada: The relationship to money: without wanting to make a generalization, but money plays an important role in relations in North America and there is no problem asking for salary on the first date, while in France the subject of money is still quite taboo. Similarly, some people will openly tell that they are looking for someone to provide for their financial needs. When I said earlier that it was more like a job interview … you know what I mean now?
All aspects of your life are inspected and your professional and financial status included. The relationship to marriage: Canada is still more traditional than France, and marriage remains an important step. Engagement first and marriage second are seen as a of success. And how is it to be with a French person? They find us very direct. For those less familiar with Canadian culture, it should be noted that the debate and conflict that we consider to be a national sport is not really common here.
They think we have a close connection with the fashion police. As French people we are very critical on the clothing aspect and as we are quite direct… we share our opinion! Or cut him a suit. Am I thinking out loud with you? Yes, I am. The process of discovering the other is longer. Beginning a relationship with someone who has the same bases can go faster because we start with the same social codes.
In a mixed couple we are groping our way between the 2 cultures of the relationship which are completely different as I explained above. Aspects rather related to our immigrant status, the very strong relationship we can have with our friends especially French here, they recognize that we are very solidary among ourselves and also understand that our friends here are our landmarks as our family here. How is to be in a relationship with a Canadian? Tips for mixed couples Communicate! A way to find yourself halfway between the two cultures. Lots of love on you, See you on Instagram for the daily stories, full of good humour and good laughs!
