french women don't sleep alone
Stop dating, throw a party and eight other ways to live and love like a French woman.

Have you ever looked at a French woman and wondered, what makes her so sexy? Author Jamie Cat Callan is American, but grew up with a French grandmother. She realized that French women had some thing that us Americans don’t have. So she went to France to learn how they achieve that seemingly effortless mix of charm and seduction. Below is a short excerpt from her book, French Women Don’t Sleep Alone: Pleasurable Secrets To Finding Love.

1. Stop Dating. French women don't date. Start by getting off the dating treadmill and meet your man in the context of a group of friends and admiring men.


2. Throw A Party. Invite old and new friends. Show off your culinary and entertaining skills.

3. Walk the Walk. French women walk everywhere. Yes, it's great exercise, but they do it to be seen. When you go for a walk with a potential lover he doesn’t know it's a date. Plus he sees other men looking at you, so he knows there's competition.

4. Get Offline and Get in Line. French women meet men in museums, bars and parties. Being charming and a little seductive is a matter of survival, so they'll chat up everyone.

5. Fraternize on the Job. Ditch the genderless business suit and wear something a bit come-hither.  

6. Be Natural. The French look is natural. This means choosing one body part and showing it off.

7. Say Hello To Your Ex. You'll never know when you'll need a date or someone to add to your coterie.

8. Create a Coterie. This is the all-important group of friends with whom you go to bars, museums and concerts.

9. Get Smart. Even if you're not really smart, carry a book and wear those spectacles. French women know that being brainy is hot. 

10. You Have a Right To Be Moody. You are ze woman. He is ze man. You are passionate! You have ze problem with that? Life is a whole lot more fun when you're not trying to act sane all the time!
