That's because when we think of the most romantic people in the world, we almost certainly think of the French.
But are the French really so traditionally romantic, or are they in fact bucking tradition in favor of modern romance, aka the internet or smartphone Apps?
Are dating websites changing the dating game in France?
But this disparity balances out with age and then eventually reverses.
The French are shy about their internet dating habits Despite its prolificness, online dating is still a bit of a taboo topic in France.
And the rest say they'll admit it only to a select few.
Perhaps that's why it's a bit of a running joke in France to have a Tinder profile saying something like: “We'll tell people we met at a museum.” More diversity but also more exclusivity As dating websites become more and more popular in France, they're evolving, becoming more socially diverse but also more targeted.We imagine love comes easy to the Gallic people with their poetic, seductive language and their no-fuss approach to romance.It's easy to picture beautiful French couples effortlessly falling in love over a cigarette and a glass of red wine on a bistro terrace, the Eiffel Tower twinkling in the background.Dating sites become more important, however, for certain populations such as divorcés.During a period of life when there's a smaller dating pool and a person's social circle is mainly made up of couples, websites become a particularly appealing way to meet people.Not too surprising considering this age group uses the internet a lot and is full of singles.
