I am American but lived in Geneva, Switzerland for half my adolescence. My french is not perfect by any means but I get by. I have been abroad many times and am an extremely open-minded person but Parisians ARE rude. I never see anyone smile. If you smile they look at you like you're insane. I have been lost in the metro and no one would help me, and as a single woman living by myself, men are overtly aggressive - I know they think they are flirting but when I am stopped every ten minutes by some guy it gets extremely irritating. I really do like Paris, but the people can be obnoxious - and hypocritical. Many of them talk about french equality and America's evils but they don't even the see the excessive racism and imperialist thinking in their own country.
