I lived with one for two years. It needs getting used to. adjustments here and there...but we learnt from each other. I like to think I became less uptight (atypical of Singaporeans in general) and he is more organised and learnt that sometimes you just have to make plans in order to proceed with things.

I'm french, and I had been dating some locale girls. It's so weird, I think we are so different. But it's why I like it .

he said sunday, you did something sunday. What is the problem ? :lol:
I don't think this is a french behaviour. It's your boyfriend who's like this, who's not stressed and who enjoys slowly his life.
By the way, as kiwi said , "go with the flow", it's more funny. 8)

Et pour Mlle guest, je t'ecris un mail de suite. Par contre, je dois etre un peu jeune pour toi.

this topic makes me recall all the things that happened during the two years I lived together with my ex-boyfriend who is french. its funny but I really took the situation in my stride and whilst there were differences in our approach to things and all, we never fight about such differences but were amused most of the time. I remember how he thought he could just decide on friday we are going off for hols over the weekend but I told him, non non...the flights would be fully booked. He didn't believe me at first and then once's bitten twice shy...the next few times we had our vacation, he urged me to book them way in advance!

So just embrace the differences, learn from them and learn to laugh at them. :-)
