It was not even a date. I was with my friends at the beach where I met a French guy. We talked a lot and he was the nicest, but when we were kissing he laughed and said "I love you" wtf. I pretended not to hear, maybe I heard wrong (i doubt it) or maybe it was like a joke but is really rare.
I don't know, boys get weird sometimes. A friend of mine messaged me on snapchat and told me he loved me and would marry me yesterday. He wasn't even drunk. We have never had a relationship like that at all so it was weird. He said it very lighthearted but he meant it. I also have a friend from Italy and he is quite romantic like that. He says 'I love you' nearly every time we talk. I think they use it a lot lighter than we do.
I don't think its serious, I don't think its a "I love you" kind of I love you. I will tell people I love them but its not serious, like a joking kind of thing. I would just take it as that and not take it to seriously.
Most difficult question to answer... May I suggest that you give it some time before making a conclusion? I didn't fall in love with my wife at first sight ,,, but did when I read her most unusual headline... The only thing that matters is sincerity...
He's mixing up different types of love. He may have an. overwealming amount of emotion for you and mistake it as love. He may see you as the one and mistake it as love. That's a type of love but not "true love". I wouldn't take it too seriously.
I live in the UK, have several French friends and work for a French company (well, it's now American but whatever, lots of French colleagues!)
This is not a cultural difference, the French don't go around saying they love people after 1 "date"... sure they are typically lovely, romantic and traditional... but saying this so soon shows a lack emotional maturity (assuming he was serious and not drunk or joking)
If he is cute, then totally hang out with him but be warned!
That can be for one or two reasons, either he was really nervous and is really interested in you or which I hope not is kinda douche and thinks because he said I love you'll sleep with him. Yeah... I hope it isn't the latter, that would suck.
