As a french Montrealer myself, I find that it is a very social circle driven scene but it is possible to pull the occasional one night stand as long as you got game, looks and can flirt, speak a bit of french.
Generally speaking, girls and women have more power than men in Quebec. They will also expect you to make the first move and pay drinks, they are conservative in that sense but don't like to be treated as inferiors, gallanterie is especially not expected. Outside Montreal, girls are really friendly and more open. I don't know much about Quebec city but it is well known that Saguenay is a region with an higher percentage of girls than guys and it is easy to pull off. But it's also the region where most people don't speak english.
Most Quebecoises are afraid or don't like foreigners when they come to Montreal. Hell, Montrealers who are ethnically anglo, moroccans, lebanese, asian or any other minority will have next to no chance with a true Quebecoise from the suburbs unless that minority was raised in the suburbs surrounded only with french canadians. And they need that distinct Quebecois accent. For those interested, I know for a fact that someone from the UK or Australia would kill in Montreal, lots of my girl friends told me that they love the british accent and the surfer's, adventurous vibe that they get from Australians.
Canadians from Ontario and other part of the country would have an hard time though, probably the same with anyone from the US outside Californians. French Canadians are taught since elementary school that english Canada is bad, that they tried to abuse us for so long But still, it would be easy to pull off if you hit the gym and look super fit, hockey-player like and yes, french canadian girls generally loves hockey players , can speak a few words of french and can isolate her from her friends.
Athletic feats are highly revered. Finally, the most important caracteristic to pull off is humor! Humor is part of our culture Just for laugh is from Montreal. Tons of average guys acheive great success with humor alone. Being outgoing and making the girl laugh is the easiest way to any Quebecoise pants!
So we can say, french canadians girls are not like French girls from France at all! Culture and knowledge is not that important for them, lot of them don't smoke. Don't mix both lot of french from France come to study or move to Montreal since years.
I'm interested in knowing your experiences with them, and has anyone hit Quebec City or other regions outside of Montreal?? This post was last modified:
