Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?

1. First of all, there's the cheese.

Brie is the Kraft Singles of France. As in that is the least classy cheese you eat there. As in even if all your French sweetheart can cook is grilled cheese, you're getting gourmet on default.

2. Then there's the wine.

There's really nothing better than a French wine. Except maybe being served fine French wine by fine French partner.

3. And the pastries.

Your French lover is probably just as much of a pain au choco-holic as you are.

4. Oh, God, the pastries.

One can never have enough macaroons on a romantic picnic dans le parc.

5. Let's not forget bread.

All of Europe is easily accessible from France, and the French are excellent at taking advantage of their holiday opportunities.

11. They're great conversationalists.

The French are great sharers and listeners with lots of cultural interests, so you'll never get bored.

12. They have adorable and/or sexy accents.

Which means you'll learn to be a very good listener.

13. They have great taste.

Whether you're talking art, fashion, film, or food, the French know what's up.

14. They value balance.

And not only when it comes to parkour! A 35-hour work week is the norm, and long lunch breaks are not just a stereotype. The French are notorious for taking time for themselves and their families, a definitive plus in a partner.

15. They're not into drama.

The French don't really do conflict. Their laid back nature is great, but their reality shows are boring.

16. But they are into art.

There are 204 museums in Paris alone, plus a hearty contemporary art gallery culture. So when you get tired of looking at your French lover's face, just head out to admire some Matisse or Monet for a while.

17. They don't have a dating culture.

Finding love in France is less of a game than you'll find in a lot of other places. Courtship doesn't happen, but falling in love totally does.

18. French parenting sounds pretty great.

Odds are your partner will be raised well, and so will your future bébés mignons.

19. In general, they seem to have relationships figured out.

Lucky for you.

20. They're environmentally conscious.

France has always played a large role in pushing environmental policies through the EU parliament, but even on an everyday level, the French tend to source local foods, compost regularly, and purchase environmentally friendly vehicles.

21. They're indulgent.

Let us all eat cake!

22. Which means there is SO MUCH FOOD.

And, if we haven't made it clear, French food = automatic love.
