There is a mythology out there that French boys are so romantic. Really, it seems more like people get caught up in visiting Paris, and are open to new experiences. Seeing the lights from the top of the Eiffel Tower is surely impressive, seeing the with someone you're attracted to is certainly romantic - unless you just had a fight about finding the place - then it's just impressive, but not romantic. In any case, this young French woman living in Paris, studying Japanese has a great deal to say about this. I think she's cute and funny. She's also the same girl from the post titled "Be Happy As A Single." Here, she basically tells us that a jerk is a jerk in any language. Her faith in people is sweet, naive, and slightly misplaced - which only adds to her charm. She seems open and friendly - but even if you aren't, jerks are still jerks and some will try with anyone. I like her. :)

Every few years the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual gets a new edition. This is actually a good thing.
