It’s tough because as I said in the disclaimer, it’s related to my personal experience, and most of all, because Diane is American, and considering that aside from her and her family, I don’t know any American women well.

First and foremost, I want to sincerely thank my husband for taking part in this series. In case you missed it, I’ve written before about how to look French, but reader Rayni has the following question for Tom: This post reflects only my opinion which is based on my own experiences.
A lot of times (and I think this is particularly true in big cities, but not only in cities), French women seem to be colder on the outside, less open to conversing with strangers and don’t really show any interest.
It often contrasts with the enthusiasm that American women can show towards the person they’re conversing with.
And that’s not the case in France although it’s starting…) Another area where norms seem to be prevalent is the beauty standards. and the TV shows I watch, I find that there’s a beauty standard featured, where the ideal woman would be a fit, long and straight haired blond woman (with a little tan).
