French dating rules

“On the other hand, if nothing has happened by the fourth date, you can start to worry.” Terrafemina says that sex is generally on the third date, and Rue89 says it’s on the fourth.

The French often meet their significant other through their social circle at group get-togethers rather than “date" people they hardly know.
