We don't have it easy, us 'celibataires' !!! It's hard enough in the UK to meet new friends and find love never mind about rural France. And there aren't that many of us ! Addressing the singletons first. No matter how fluent your French, it's hard to cut off an English head and replace it with a French one. An hour or so of chatting (mostly banal stuff because I can completely communicate my inner feelings !) always gives me a headache and there is no denying that our idosyncracies and culture make us completely different. Believe me, I have tried. 5 years of dating on Meetic and I have met a few dozen French men over the years ..... but it's never worked out more than a maximum of three dates and either they get fed up because of the language or I can't go the extra mile ! I know that us singletons range from, say early 40's up to our 60's. It's never too late for lurve ! It's also hard to forge friendships if you are a singleton. Couples have it much easier .... and are much more accepted, n'est pas? It would be great if Anglo Info introduced a section for "Friendship and Would Like to Meet". Much better also if it went across the board on all the Anglo Infos ...just like the new Blogs. Then we could meet other AI members all over France and have a better chance of walking into the sunset ! Come on Anglo Info ...give it a shot !!
I am looking into buying a piece of land close to the Melrand area, Morbihan with a view of building a house as a long term project. Does anyone have details of an architect that they would recommend, as i am guessing this is going to be my 1st requirement. Any further help or advice greatfully received. This has been a life long ambitionThanks John
