Not necessarily distant and cold, certainly formal - so perhaps slightly strange for someone who expects to be on 'tu' terms with you. They will soon put you right though and won't be offended at all. At the end of the day we all have the convenience of being foreigners and so being able to get away with not getting it perfectly right every now and again
