Date a babe the virtual dating game
Now, not everybody does that of course, some girls like to play, and sometimes lose themselves in the game, or hurt people. A Frenchwoman is expected to play her feminine side, and be “admired” for her beauty and wit among other qualities.Frenchmen like to flirt as well, even if they know very well there is no hope of it leading anywhere.Nor did I know about this first date, second date and third date business.In France, it’s very common for a girl to go out to dinner with a male friend.It’s also possible to meet other boys later in the story, which uses a virtual high school as the main setting.Interaction is quite limited, as users themselves can neither type text nor “speak” to the characters.
But the social aspect is actually quite distinctive, as members need to befriend each other and collaborate.
So, since there is no dating protocol, French guys have to work hard for it…
They cannot just assume that if the girl accepts to go out with them three times, “c’est dans la poche” (it’s in the pocket, it’s a done deal).
