If you want to talk about minor shit, I got a 30 euro fine last year on vacation in Paris because I got caught by fucking metro inspectors without my ticket stub.
They have a fucking credit card reader with them to take your money. I read on the internet later if you say you don't have any credit cards and no cash they'll let you go.
The saddest part is I talked to a guy who has lived in Paris for 30 years and says he's never even been stopped by them once before, and hardly ever even sees them. I'm there for a goddamn week and get pinched.
A. If you fuck all kinds of random women / prostitutes.
B. Very early in a relationship.
I don't see a place for them in a long term relationship. I occasionally hear people saying they've been together 3, 5, or even 10 years and have been using condoms the whole time.
That's insane. She should be using birth control or be willing to...(in a committed relationship, not for one night stands, obviously.)
CSB: I'm in a year+ relationship right now. We waited a couple of months before we had sex.
I bought a 100 bulk of condoms off Amazon at the beginning of the relationship for like $50. She bought a couple of boxes at CVS.
We ended up using one literally ONE TIME! I'm not saying this is a great idea for most couples, and you should be aware of a recent STD test first, and be confident enough she's actually taking birth control, but in the SAME NIGHT that we used a condom, we did no condom like 10 minutes later when neither of us had come yet.
Caveat: You should only trust someone you'd actually be willing to have a kid with.
I sleep touching my girlfriend for a while, or if on a weekend night, but we almost always (read: like 99 percent of the time) wake each other up like an hour later and go to the sides of the bed.
On work nights we immediately just go to the sides of the bed without touching, because we know it keeps each other up.
She falls asleep like nearly instantly with her head on my chest, which I like, but I can barely fall asleep myself when she does it, and she starts to fidget around too. Always cuddle in the morning when we're both waking up, though, and can usually fall asleep holding her then, but not at night. I don't know why.
I watch a LOT of French movies. I will not watch any more with Charlotte Gainsbourg. It's not to say I haven't liked some of the movies she's been in. But they position her as being the beautiful, center of attention, hard to attain woman in some of them, and it annoys the shit out of me.
See also: Vanessa Paradis, who gets the same roles, and is also ugly as shit:
See also: Cecile de France, who is in the same boat.
That said, there are tons of beautiful French actresses, and it's easy to avoid these hosebags.
