How to Attract a French Man
French men tend to have a certain universal allure to make almost any woman fall head over heels. Romance is a part of French culture and when Men's Health reports that over half of American women think their partners would rather hang out with their friends than have a romantic evening, it is apparent that many ladies are looking for something a little more enchanting. Follow a few key guidelines and even if you don't speak French, you could soon be well-versed in the language of love.
Join groups that focus on French culture. Attend a few events at the French consulate in Chicago, or frequent screenings at the French Film MeetUp in New Orleans. Several cities throughout the country have French consulates and French language and culture MeetUp groups. Many of these groups are lead by French immigrants and it is not uncommon for a Frenchman to stop by a meeting to practice his mother tongue.

Take pride in your appearance. Dating experts from Marie Claire explain that the secret to French women's allure is that many other cultures already characterize them as sexy. Carry yourself like someone who believes she is seductive. Accentuate your assets. Invest in great mascara if your eyes are your best feature or buy a great pair of jeans if your tush is your favorite body part.
Treat him like a man. Boost his ego: compliment his shoes, his smell or the way he walks. Brag about him in front of your friends. Focus on his other attributes besides his nationality, however. Being from France might be attractive, but there is more every man than his motherland.

Don't be afraid to be sensual. The Journal of Sex Studies found that French people are not only more likely to be faithful in long term relationships, but enjoy sex more frequently than Americans. The Sexual Wellbeing Survey also says that at least 70 percent of the French have sex once a week, compared to just over 50 percent of Americans. Learn to be comfortable with your body and your sexuality to impress your French guy. Find pictures of celebrities with your body-type or, practice a dance form that celebrates your shape. Belly-dancing and burlesque dancing are great starting points for those with curves.

Invest time in becoming worldly. Learn about politics and culture. It doesn't have to be French politics and culture, just as long as you are able to engage in a conversation about something other than (American) football and reality television. The French are known for their fine tastes and many Europeans are very knowledgeable about American politics. Read the newspaper or practice a fine art, and you will stand out.
Learn to relax. The French are known for their ability to kick back and enjoy life. Don't talk about work or your career or financial goals on your first date and don't stress over material things in front of him. Focus more on your experiences and your intellect. The French do not define people by what they do for a living, they are more interested in how people actually live.
