Why can I not fall in love with Paris?

Jump to last reply

I've just come back from a couple of days in Paris and I've finally allowed myself to admit that I've never loved Paris and doubt I ever will.

To put it another way, I really enjoy going to Paris, but if someone (with an evidently incredible power over my life) told me tomorrow that I'd never be able to go back, I wouldn't actually be that bothered.

What does bother me is that I can't work out why. I've been literally dozens of times, from long stays to day trips, high end to low end and everything in between. I've done the big sights, the small sites and off the beaten track. Spring, summer, autumn and winter in every type of weather.

We even christened (well it was a parrainage republicain for any fellow heathens out there) our first-born child there - as his 'godmother' was living there at the time - but it just never gets its hooks into me the same way other cities do.

Am I a hopeless case or is there something I'm missing?

What can/should I do to change this? Or should I just accept that that's the way I've been wired?
