The Short Version: Quebec singles looking for love need look no further than Quebec
Rochefort has her own historical theory about the development of male and female dating characteristics in Quebec that make it so vexing for new arrivals.“When men came back from the logging camps, those women who were single didn’t have the time to wait around for a partner,” she said.
If there was to be a courtship, a marriage, a household and children, it had to happen fast.“It was the woman who took things into her own hands so it could be dealt with before the men left again. There are surely others.”Other reasons suggested at the workshop include the rise of a robust feminist movement in Canada and the high divorce rate in North America, which may have resulted in boys being raised without a male role model to teach them about gallantry and more traditional modes of gender relations.
Whatever the reason, there were a roomful of female new immigrants who agreed that Canadian men, particularly those from Quebec, tend to be the complete opposite of their hot-blooded counterparts in other parts of the world.“Here, if someone says ‘hello,’ you don’t know if they’re flirting or if it’s something else.
In addition to the many challenges of adapting to this country, people struggle to learn the language of love, said Marie-France Archibald, a seduction and life coach who co-hosted the workshop.“I had two Latino clients this year and one of them said he wanted to go back to Brazil because socializing here was difficult,” she said.“In Latin American countries people approach each other wherever they are.
They send each other signals that they are interested. You might see that at social events or in bars, but not in public transit.
I often hear that.”Nathalie Rochefort, president of De Gama, a non-profit organization that helps immigrants navigate their new world, said the course was created after seeing both men and women struggle to figure out the local dating scene.“There were many women who complained about not being flirted with, about feeling invisible in the eyes of men,” she said.
One attendee, French national Severine Fourquet, said she has spent the last month and a half searching for jobs, attending conferences and networking as part of a reconnaissance mission for the new life she plans to build in Quebec.
That includes finding a significant other.“It’s part of a life project,” she said. I’d like to be able to find a boyfriend here.”In a workshop entitled “Flirting in Quebec,” there was no room for misunderstanding among attendees from France, Belgium, Benin, Colombia and Guadeloupe, a small Caribbean island belonging to France.
But he has also benefitted from the supposed opportunism of women from Quebec, albeit when he was in France.“She was the one who made the first move, but I was the one who invited her out to dinner and took the matter in hand,” he said, adding that he wasn’t put off by a forward woman.
