About Lily & JTMN
Je t’aime… moi non plus (translated as “I Love you… me neither) is a song by rebellious French rock icon, Serge Gainsburg. Racy, intense and contradictory, the song’s title epitomizes the relationship the French have with romance (love, lust or otherwise). Paris is supposed to be the eternal city of amour, and it can be.
However, since arriving here many years ago, I continuously find myself victim—with varying degrees of willingness—to the city’s tormented sensual power… which inevitably leads to all kinds of amorous misadventures. From ferociously passionate to absurdly funny, the stories, snippets and features in this blog (and those in my book Je T’Aime, Me Neither) will hopefully: make you laugh and/or cry; make you love men or hate them; feel better for having made some of the same stupid mistakes; or grant you a little window into the je t’aime or the je ne t’aime pas of Paris.

About Lily la Tigresse
(April) Lily Heise abandoned her native Canada for Paris in 2000. Ever since, she’s been trying—quite unsuccessfully—to stay out of romantic trouble. She writes on travel and romance for international and local publications (Frommer’s Paris and France guides and the Conde Nast Daily Traveler Blog, the Context Travel blog and the Hip Paris Blog, a more extensive list below). She has translated large sections of two books by noted French intellectual Jacques Attali, and wrote two business English language guides. The latter having nothing to do with her current book . . . other than naughtily inspiring one of its chapters.
