- Most readers of France in London may well be thinking – ‘surely... - The first thing I did when I was invited for dinner at La Ferme... Brigitte Bardot, Isabelle Adjani, Juliette Binoche, Marion Cotillard, Eva Green, Audrey Tautou : between you and me, I am sure you have always wanted to flirt with a French girl, or at least dreamed about kissing one.

If you really want a taste of France, just date a “petite française”.

If you haven't already read it, she manages to puts a positive spin on our "traits".

Whereas we were once sleazy, we are now "not afraid of PDAs", we have gone from being chauvinistic to chivalrous...

she doesn't just talk us up, she also gives an insight into quite what girls are looking for in a guy.

That is to say don't be one of those sleazy guys harassing the girls on the dance-floor, just pretend to dance without ulterior motive (key word here being "pretend")...
