French Tinder

I did something kind of dumb- which is, having never had a Tinder in America, I created a profile when I got to France.

It’s been a good way to practice French, truthfully, but also I’m learning (and noticing) some odd things. Fill me in- what’s normal for Tinder and which of these are weird specific to a 40 km radius of Versailles?

  • I’ve learned a lot of great but not widely applicable/appropriate words and phrases. Some favorites:
    Enculer- to ass fuck
    Je te mange le cul- I can eat your ass.
  • A guy named Adrien who looks weirdly like Adrien Brody.
    I do not mind.
  • A lot of Yankees hats.
    I DO mind.
    Yankees suck.
  • A good number who are mutual friends with friends of mine from college and even high school. It’s a small world after all.
  • The stereotypical douchebag look (lots of squinting, a fair amount of pouty lips and duck face, etc.) is alive and well across the Atlantic.
  • Someone who said their favorite things are penguins and waffles. Am ready to marry.
  • Too much facial hair. Although I do understand this is a matter of opinion.
  • A lot of people from this Middle East. I think because I am closer to the Middle East here.
  • A lot of guys giving health advice in there profiles. Like “Eat healthfully and live well, strawberries are good for the stomach.”
  • So much smoking. So much for living healthfully and strawberries.
  • A lot of guys named Quentin…?
  • Speaking of names… I never realized there were so many Thibaults. I dig it.
  • Also a lot of Mehdis.
