What do you find to be the biggest cultural differences between Americans and French? (non-pc answers encouraged)

Well my French man cannot stand the junk food I eat, each time we go visit his family for the holidays it is a 6 course affair and I leave feeling stuffed. Americans have been described by some of my French friends as being big puppy dogs who talk too much, are superficial, and emotional. The French school system was another experience entirely. Work wise, the french are much more direct and accept no BS. My French coworkers said what they thought, no trying to be polite or subtle. I started picking this trait up to which did not help when I started working with a British organization.

Introduction

I am a 27 year old female moving back to Paris after spending the last couple years in Africa. I will marry my french partner and settle down. I am eager to meet new people and have new adventures.
