Flirting 101: The Irish joust and the French pursue? Oui!

 When it comes to the rhythms of romance, flirtation,

and seduction there are distinct national styles of flirting.

 The French are much more about charm, persuasion, and allure.

They are apt to touch your arm, your cheek, look longingly into your eyes and kiss you on both cheeks and wax poetic… while calling you ‘mon petite Chou.’

French men do not blink when they throw you a kooky pick up line – like one of these:

Excuse-moi. Est-ce que tu embrasses les inconnus? Non? Donc, je me présente.
Excuse me, do you kiss strangers? No? Then let me introduce myself….

Bon Jour…Je viens d’arriver dans ta ville. Est-ce que tu pourrais m’indiquer le chemin jusqu’à ton appartement?
Whatszup…I just arrived in this city. Could you tell me the way to your apartment?

The French are famous for hedonism and prioritizing… and  fashion, wine, champagne, cheese, the Musee D’Orsay, the Pompidou Centre and of course the Louvre..for famous authors including Cyrano de Bergerac, Albert Camus, Gustave Flaubert, Jules Verne, Victor Hugo and Alexandre Dumas…and for flirtatious French Men. All women prefer Maurice Chevalier over Dominique Strauss Kahn

The French are true romantics. They feel the only difference between a man of forty and one of seventy is thirty years of experience.    Maurice Chevalier

Irish9The Irish embrace a ‘rugged charm’ and are more apt to slap you on the back, give you a bear hug and offer to buy you a pint… the Irish male may have a small

Repertoire of funny stories and may say you are ‘as comfortable as an old shoe.’

The Irish are very well known for their wit, quick humor, compassion and for the likes of Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw, James Joyce, Roddy Doyle, Frank McCourt, Samuel Beckett, Kelly, Walsh, Donovan, Monaghan, Callaghan, Burns, Murphy…

Their Pick Up lines May Run the Gamut from A – B….

  • How Ya doin?
  • Do you come here often?
  • Want to come home with me? Can I go home with you?
  • You look like I need a drink, join me?

Sure now, with little training…Miracles happen. Irish men are generally clever, people pleasing, easy going, optimistic and respect their mothers…

Generally speaking: The Irish Male makes contact with a woman -and they talk about what they have in common. Often this is infused with much teasing, wit, a wink, a nudge and a smile… Mutually, the couple decides what they have in common and then…plan on developing it.

I’ll have a pint!
