Nor did I know about this first date, second date and third date business.In France, it’s very common for a girl to go out to dinner with a male friend.
I guess it’s much more accepted in France for men and women to be friends.
However, if a woman is dining with a man, you can bet he will pick up the check. I usually trick them by asking to be excused (as if I was going to the lady’s room, grab the waiter and give him my credit card).
According to a MSNBC survey, 30% of the men using an online dating service are married. Well…there really is no fool proof method and sadly catching a liar online can be harder than catching the married guy hitting on you at the bar.
However, there are some signs that might help you spot a married man online. A married man will not put up his photo online obviously because he does not want to be recognized.
Even for a married woman to go out with a male friend who is single: I often travel to Paris by myself, Leyla and Olivier stay in Paimpol, and have dinner with one (or several) of our good male friend(s), single or not.
