Time for today’s keyword search: Does a Frenchman email?
Thanks to whoever asked this question!
In my experience, Frenchmen do sometimes write emails. But it’s more a precursor to texting. Which they would much rather do but they can’t because they don’t have your number yet.
Here’s an example of an email a Frenchman might send:
I got your email address from Jerome’s email to everyone for the party last night. Hope you don’t mind 🙂 I really enjoyed talking to you. I think we had a really special connection, no? 😛 Shall we see each other again? 🙂 You can reach me at: 06 XX XX XX. Text me and let’s arrange something 🙂 C u soon. Bizzzz 🙂
As you can see, the email is short and rammed full of emoticons. The objective is to get you into texting him. Because this is often a Frenchman’s preferred method of communication.
Once you guys start texting, you’ll get texts like this:
Hi, around the corner 🙂 Meet for drinks in 10 mins? 😛 Bizzzz
Be ready though. Once the texts begin, if the guy is into you, they’ll just keep coming….
So basically, emails are just a stepping stone. Once texting begins, emailing is thrown out the window.
