You’ve fallen in love with an incredible woman. The only catch is that she’s from different culture and you seem to get your signals crossed on a regular basis. Is this a deal breaker or is there a way to make it work? If you are serious about this woman, read on for some tips on how to date a woman from different culture.
The main thing is to accept that you are not going to see eye to eye on everything. If you enjoy the differences in your cultures rather than let them become an obstacle to happiness, then you may find that cultural differences more often than not prove to be exciting and interesting rather than frustrating and strange. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Communication is the key in any relationship, but it’s even more important when both parties have been raised in completely different settings that may involve different moral values, principles, and ideas on what life should be like.
You have to be committed to enjoying the relationship despite that flak the two of you are going to get. Unfortunately racist people do exist that hate every culture out there. Putting two different cultures together in a relationship opens you up not only to snide remarks from people who are prejudice against each of your cultures in particular but also from those who are opposed to intercultural relationships in general. Be prepared. You may even want to take the first issue that comes up and turn it into an opportunity to discuss how you will respond to rude comments from ignorant people in the future.
You can expect ignorant people to say ignorant things, but don’t let it smother genuine love. If you have a lot in common and are attracted to each other emotionally, mentally, and physically, you can make the relationship work despite what others may think.
