In six weeks I went from that lady at dinner parties with an adoring husband whispering, “You are the most beautiful woman in the room” to single mom-dom.
Which is how I found myself dating online in Paris.
In France, it’s very common for a girl to go out to dinner with a male friend.After 20 years of happily ever after, my husband awoke one morning in our Paris apartment a changed man, a man in a midlife crisis. We already had two kids and I was the other side of 40. He wanted to work endless hours, have a wife without children, hang with 30-year olds.There wasn’t a site like that.” She discussed it with friends living in France and discovered that they felt the same.Most expats integrate well in France but the choice to date and meet other expats was missing.
But I would never do that to my Dad who would be very upset if I did. When I meet a man and I am without my husband, I’ll place within the first minutes of the conversation that “my husband blablabla… That usually is enough to make my state of mind really clear.
