Belarusian Larisa Kissel, who has been living in France for several years, wrote on Facebook about her observations of local women and compared how they differ from ours.
About the difference between a Slav and a Frenchwoman in my personal interpretation, which does not pretend to objectivity, but is a consequence of my observations and sensations.
Our girl 20+ has not achieved anything yet, but already wants to get married. With all her appearance and behavior, she hunts. Externally flawless, it follows trends, always on time - manicure and pedicure, eyebrows, eyelashes and hair coloring. From this she is very tense, nervous and overly reflective about the psychology of relationships.
Choosy, man evaluates in digital equivalent, well mastered the art of simulation. High opinion of yourself. He is looking for in whose reliable hands this treasure can be transferred.
The French young girl is natural and relaxed. Without a manicure and with hastily made up toenails, flying gait, a look turned inward and full of pleasure from itself. I often brake the car to enjoy this barely perceptible inner smile and absolute enjoyment of life. She doesn't care if her name is married or not. It is quite possible that she will live all her life “with a friend” or “companion”, which does not bother her at all. She is also not embarrassed by the prospect of living alone and having occasional relationships with different men. She pays half for housing herself, provides herself. Bad, but as it is.
Our girl, 20–30 years old, strictly monitors her diet, knows the volume of her circumference up to a millimeter and is picky about skin tone (he should certainly be with a tan already to the beach). A young French woman eats indiscriminately, she strips naked on the beach, immerses any body in water with pleasure, she is convinced that she looks great. So it is, by the way, is. They look good, and no centimeters in this play a role.
Russian-speaking girl 25−35 is almost always a demonstrative fiton or carefully hides it.If she has already become a trophy, she is doing everything to keep and keep this status. She has a whole notebook of assistants - masters of beauty, whose phones the girl breathes to her friends. If not, it works with double strength.
The Frenchwoman prefers jogging on Saturdays to the fitness room, is not concerned about the issue of elastic protruding buttocks, has no idea what her skin turgor on the inner surfaces of the limbs and does not merge half the state into anti-cellulite massages. If not in a permanent relationship, it is easy to change partners, not bothering their status and income.
Our girl covers the body in all places that, in her opinion, should be emphasized. The Frenchwoman opens or emphasizes the legs and always leaves a space between the body and the clothes in the upper part of the body. Flowing top, sophisticated fabrics, playful print, very rarely - neckline.
Our girl, who did not give birth at 30, out of habit, considers herself to be late homogeneous and late for the train. He is upset and offended by relatives pushing her. The Frenchwoman at this age is just beginning to wonder if she wants a child. And it does not matter if it is paired or not.Mom would never think to tell her daughter that “as if it were time for me”.
Our girl since childhood buys expensive French creams, because beauty must be followed from an early age. A French girl takes the cheapest mass market on the shelf, often forgets to use it, but that does not lose her love for herself.
Every second our girl is a professional make-up artist, diligently monitors new items and recommendations of beauty bloggers. Young French women are painted bright and controversial. Make-up art master to 50.
35−50 - a difficult period in the French. At this age, they work a lot for a decent old age, pay loans with a companion, raise children, who, if they can easily bear, give birth to each other and a lot. If it does not work out - they adopt it, again a lot. The main party for non-working mothers is a playground in front of the school. They look so-so, but quite happy. The workers are still beautiful, always in love, often with their husbands. They flirt a lot, they don’t see if a man is busy. Do not reflect, enjoy, live.
Our woman is over 40 years old, builds a career, ceases to love her husband, firmly decides that it is no longer possible,enrolled in self-esteem and self-love courses, young, fighting the first signs of aging that the Frenchwoman still spits on. He divorces her husband and formulates the signs of the ideal second in a psychologist's office. Soon, she herself becomes a psychologist or, at worst, a coach.
A woman in 50 in France reaches its heyday. Right now she can openly wear her own diamonds, with pride - gray hair that is always laid, and with grace - top-end clothing. Woman 50+ in France - the queen. She deserved it and earned it. She is in excellent physical condition, because at 40 she stopped eating sugar and fatty meat, every morning she starts with a jog or yoga lesson, walks a lot on foot and does not hesitate to use antidepressants.
At 50, art de vivre begins, and it lasts until sunset at 90+. I have 90-year-old ladies in my house who, going downstairs to pick up the mail, are dressed, made-up and perfumed, like an appointment with the president. Even if this is their only (due to shaky health) output per day.
Our woman in 50+ is already eating everything, because "how much is already left there." Rarely involved in sports, because "and who already needs it."Very smart and interesting, but she herself no longer needs it. Starts to talk about old age.
The Frenchwoman first mentioned this word in her legitimate 87. When, buying a baguette in a bakery, she suddenly discovered that she had forgotten her wallet at home.
