Family and dating
The dating game can be hard enough in your home country, and even trickier if you're navigating an international dating scene without knowing how the game is played.
Here's a guide to take you through your first Euro date.
In France, Germany and Belgium, it's common for the man to ask a woman out, but in Switzerland, the men can be a little reserved so women might want to give them a nudge.
For French men, it's all about the chase, and playing ‘hard to get' is part of the game.
If you say ‘no' to an invitation, he may well think you're playing hard to get and will probably persist.
If a man keeps calling you, don't start thinking he's a bit of a stalker.
In France and Spain it's not unusual for a man to call/text/email a lot – it just means he's interested.
If a woman shows too much interest too soon, she may scare a man away.
As in France, a game of chase and refusal must take place before any form of ‘date' will materialise.
