Well, it all depends which side of the bed he got out of that morning.
Because frankly, it’s pretty hard to follow.
Example, one day, your dress isn’t skin tight enough. The other, too many guys are oggling you.
Saturday I went to a party with my Frenchman. It was someone’s 40th. The theme was the 70s and so out came my sequin backless dress, because it was the occasion to wear it. Thing is it wasn’t a cool party, it was more of a family affair. We didn’t know before we got there.
There was a DJ, okay music, champagne, along with kids and grandma and grandpa. I hung out with my Frenchman and a couple of friends we went there with, and I danced very demurely. But I guess if you’re wearing a sequin backless dress and looking kinda hot, people stare. Short of covering myself with a potato sack, there was nothing I could do about it. Oh well.
But here’s the thing. The next day my Frenchman said that there might be occasions in the future where he wouldn’t like me dressed like that and dancing too much. And he said in those cases he would come and get me and tell me so. Like if guys were staring too much, or if guys didn’t know I was there with someone, or if guys came onto me. I said I was a big girl and I could manage, but he insisted and said it would make him feel uncomfortable.
So where’s the line? A Frenchman likes you to dress sexy, likes men to admire his girlfriend so he can stroke his ego in that he’s with a looker. But sometimes, too much attention makes him feel bad. Can a Frenchman have his cake and eat it?
I am definitely not used to my boyfriend encouraging me to dress sexy, and criticizing me when I wear more baggy items of clothing. Usually my man doesn’t like other men looking at me. But my Frenchman appeared to have given me free reign. And because I’m in shape right now and love clothes, I’ve run with it recently. Enter his insecurities, well what do you know!
A Frenchman, insecurities? I guess Frenchmen are only human.
