Hey mylotters; I just wanna know your opinion about this: I have dated alot of guys which is same to my race but i found them less interesting so i started dating with guys from different races, there i found out something that they are not just interesting but also you could learn something from them. At first i thought it was hard to minggle with people from other country but in the end it was fun and knowledgeable. i am not saying that people in my country was not that interesting but maybe it was just base on my own experience. Now i already got a hubby which is different from my race and we goes along well. What about you?

I've never dated anyone either, and I would like to...and call me racist or not, but I don't want to date anyone outside of my race (asian). It's just a preference and culture thing for me.

As you've been dating lots of around you. From my point of view you weren't satisfied with any. There may be a problem with you in understanding peoples or you just couldn't find any like you. In the problem of mingling with others requires lot of patience sometimes. When you live with others you just have to yes in order to keep them happy. Love or beloved. You have a husband and still want to date. That makes a Q.

I tried dating someone from a different religion. She is from a Pentecost church but doesn't bother too much about it, but she said she feels repressed by her religion especially in philosophical issues. She always tells me that their pastors don't encourage them to listen to other people of different beliefs and they should only listen to their church. I was born a Catholic but consider myself an atheist, which really concerned me because she may leave me because of these differences. Fortunately, she didn't (that time) and we were in good terms. We try not to talk about religion and beliefs when we're together. We talk about everything under the sun and it was okay... That is until she decided to break up with me because 'I was of no help in our relationship's growth'. I couldn't understand what she said but I tried to give her the space she needs. Maybe I haven't contributed anything to nurture the relationship.

I am the same as you. I have dated a lot of foreign guys just because I have so many failed relationships with Filipino guys. I think Filipino guys are boring and I don't find them interesting at all. My last relationship with a Filipino guy last year was pretty bad, he's always asking money from me from time to time. I wont mind helping or lending but I don't want to be abused. I figured out that it was his own style. My current boyfriend is a Belgian guy, who's the same age as me and we met last November. I am very happy with my current boyfriend, he's serious with me and he is coming back here this coming May 2. We are going for a 3 week vacation and going around the Philippines. I have travelled overseas before for work but not yet in our own country and I think this is the great time to do that. His friends are asking what is the difference with me and the other girls in their country. I told my boyfriend to tell this to his friends, Our love is a scientific mystery. As science says, magnet with unlike poles attract while like poles repel. This is the same with us, amidst our skin color and cultural differences, we attract each other.

Well I'm from Texas so almost any girl from outside Texas would fall in that category as far as culture goes. All kidding aside, yes I have. I am caucasian and I have dated hispanic which I guess would qualify as a race difference although I didn't pay much attention to it. I'm not religious but the closest for me would be Protestant and I have dated Catholic girls, Jewish girls and some I don't even know their religion. I had a couple of dates with a girl from Chile once and I think she was well connected in her country as far as being from a political family or something and was in the U.S. going to college. I think she was quite interested in me but knew she couldn't get too attached because her family would not approve of her getting close to an American(of the U.S. type).

Unfortunately, I never have a chance to date a man from another culture because the internet is not yet popular during the time I meet my husband now.. hahaha.. Now a days, there are many ladies from my country who married foreigners through the help of the internet. And some are successful in their marriage and some end up to divorce. Congratulations because you are lucky to have a hubby who is good.

I have never dated anyone from my race. I'm just not attracted to anybody from my race (at least I've never been attracted to someone from my race) All my ex boyfriends were all from different races, cultures and religion. I've dated a budhist, a catholic, protestant, democrat, republican etc... Our race difference or religious beliefs was never an issue.. Its was more about love and attraction so I dont see a problem with dating any race..

i have not yet dated anyone who is from another race, culture and religion. well i'm not in to dating yet because i'm still a student and i want to study first. but i'm ready to date any girl. well i think that you'll really learn many things from someone who's from another race, culture and religion because they are from another race and they have different culture and religion.

As long as you are compatible and you each other, there is no harm in having a partner from another race, culture or religion. I am wishing you good luck on your relationship. I am sure your babies will be handsome and beautiful. Most couple who are from different race have cute babies. I haven't experience dating someone from another race, culture and religion. I am a Filipino. All my suitors are also Filipino. But I have lot of friends who married someone who is not a Filipino. All of them are happily married.

I wouldn't mind dating someone from a different race or culture.I am fond of meeting new people.I see it also as an opportunity to learn and understand another country and culture.as long as he's a gentleman, open-minded,funny, and not a sexist,we'll get along well.I will teach him also about my own culture.it's a two-way street of learning and romance.

hi! i'm filipino. yes, i've dated a few before who are not filipino. there was an indian and a couple of koreans. i casually went out with an american and an australian too. but all my ex-boyfriends are filipinos. my soon to be ex-bf (-lol-) is half-american though. i have no problem meeting and interacting with guys from other nations, culture or religion... but i have yet to find someone who's meant for me. :) my bestfriend who is a filipino muslim, after learning that i'm planning to end my current relationship, has a few guys from turkey already lined up for me to meet. i don't know if my being a catholic will be a big issue in forming a relationship with a muslim. i don't wanna think about that one just yet. it's nice to hear everything is going well in your marriage. have the best of luck. see you around in mylot. ;)
