None of those things really matter. The biggest question is: How easy are the women to meet? How stuck up are they? Are they easy to chat up? Do they have any cold walls or barriers around them? Does social energy flow freely and naturally? Is it easy to vibe with people? Are they open minded?

You hardly hear guys having success with french women, Why is that?
I heard they look natural, no much makeup,dont shave armpits and dont take shower
I have a best friend from france. she likes me alot and i like her. from my experience french women are very flirtatious. they are approachable for me and give body contact the minute i meet them. very social to me. but my experience is limited to the tourists here. will see what they are like when i arrive in their country. i think it is going to be the same for me.
