Dating french canadian girls
Calling the French Canadians simply “French” will not only offend the French Canadians, but it will also not go very well with actual French people from France. Don’t shorten the name of a whole nation just because you don’t feel like saying one extra word.
For whatever reason, English speakers tend to think that proper French is only spoken by people from France, and they tend to call the language “real French.” Of course, there are some aspects of the Canadian French language that are different from European French due to evolution, but it’s still as “real” as the European version.
The one true exception in Canada is Ottawa-Gatineau where you have large areas of relatively typical Qubcois and relatively typical Ontarioan environments in the same metro.Sure, your poorly chosen words may not be intentionally mean, however, your fault always lies in the fact that you haven’t educated yourself on the matter.Maybe you’re new to the country or just haven’t met many French Canadians before.So I can sit in the Rideau Centre in downtown Ottawa and easily spot francophones and anglophones by the way they dress. Not everyone of course - a majority of people are dressed neutrally, but good chunks do wear stuff only anglophones or only francophones would wear.
Saying that you ate something typical for French cuisine (like cheese or poutine) out of Quebec and claiming that it was “the best you ever had” will definitely make the French Canadians really mad.
