I guess it’s much more accepted in France for men and women to be friends.
However, if a woman is dining with a man, you can bet he will pick up the check. I usually trick them by asking to be excused (as if I was going to the lady’s room, grab the waiter and give him my credit card).
Even for a married woman to go out with a male friend who is single: I often travel to Paris by myself, Leyla and Olivier stay in Paimpol, and have dinner with one (or several) of our good male friend(s), single or not.
Olivier trusts me, and we both trust our friend(s), who would never make a pass at me.
For Happn, the Spotify integration could be seen as an attempt to keep pace with Tinder.The location-based dating app Happn has launched a new feature that allows users to send full-length Spotify songs to one another.Happn users can stream the songs directly through the app and display their favorite Spotify songs directly on their dating profiles, though the French startup says it has no plans to use that information to influence matchmaking.But the music streaming company has made moves to expand beyond its traditional desktop and mobile platforms.Last month, Spotify signed a multi-year deal to bring its music to Starbucks coffee shops, and it struck a similar partnerships with Uber late last year.
