Have you ever thought about getting a boy/girlfriend who's of another culture?

My ex-fiance was a second generation Mexican-American. His grandparents on both sides were immigrants and his family still held to a lot of their Mexican culture. It's probably not exactly what you were meaning but after that I can probably say yes in answer to your question.

see culture for me does not matter, so long as we have shared interests, the most important one being my love of heavy metal. that for me is a deciding factor and a somewhat alternative lifestyle and open mind, and definitely high intelligence, if all those factors are present then culture, race, color or creed matters not.

I never have any problem with the religion or race of my girlfriend. What I look lost is a good hear & a good character which is the best thing one could get. Getting a smart, caring & loving partner is any mans dream & for me nothing else comes as an obstacle in between.

Yes, rather I was much interested in those who belong to different cultures but at the time of marriage I married a person of my culture and I am happy with my marraige. But I still keep on digging the facts of different cultures.

ya i had this somewhat weird wish to have someone as my boyfriend from other culture.i felt that was the best way to break barriers and promote universalism.i thought it to be gr8 concept of true humanity . a popular phrase stands in our country that is "vashudhaiv kutumbakam" meaning the whole world is your family.and truely believed that intermingling within cultures would help sort out the differences.but reality has struck me now.though i still believe in what i think was true before;yet with the failed relationships i now see that its difficult to make other people see your point if they have a very strict upbringing.and i think most of them have this strong cultural anchor which is difficult to cut loose.

Perhaps this depends on where you live. I live in a country and city where there are diverse people - it's not unusual here to be with someone not of your culture or race here. I am married to someone who is of another "race", but we are both born and raised "Americans". So really, we are of the same American culture . . . though I was raised knowing two cultures. We know we're not the same "physically" speaking, but we don't think of each other that way. If you love someone and get along great with them, what does it matter?

i am married now to the man with the same as my culture. I don't have a friend who came from different country, i have lots of cyber friends from around the world but we only talk on the net and i never have the idea of who really they are. but i think that when love comes, you don't need to look who and where he came from.

I am currently engaged to someone from a different country with a different culture. And things are perfect!International relationships have pros and cons. I will discuss about the cons first so then I can end my response with batting my eyelashes and hearts:) The challenging part is (1) when your partner says, believes, thinks, or does something that you have not been used to your entire life. The only way to get around this is to be open to him or her every time you see these "deeds" and if you can come to a compromise (either you come to understand it or he does it less often). (2) There are times when the two of you would experience being away for each other for long periods of time and it can be frustrating and depressing. (3) You will have to adjust to everyone he knew way back when, way back then. Coming from different places/cultures, there will be times when you can feel out of place when he talks about familiar people, inside jokes with old friends and family, and other things like that. But this shouldn't really be a big deal. The good parts? (1) Adventure - there's so much to do, so much to learn, and so much to share. The love party never ends!(2) Distance makes the heart grow fonder. And when you are together love is in the air!!! (3) Mystery is always exciting - you find simple things in life that will make the best memories you will have in your life! (4) You see life and the world from a different perspective. It broadens your vision, enriches your dreams, and makes you realize that after all we are "human beings" designed to live and love without boundaries. (5) You may experience sweet gestures that you never thought would happen to you with someone from your own place/culture. (6) You take him or her to your place and he does the same. It gives you a reason to travel! (7) AND SO MUCH MORE!I will always be thankful to and for the love of my life

Of course! I always thought about that. Different culture is not an obstacle to me, I can easily adapt to other culture as well. Happy posting guys!

What do you really mean?different culture means different belief or different countriy or others.I almost can't imagine how to live with a girlfriend of another colture.Having a girlfiend of another country do give me mang things novelty.I may need a life time to know about her.Ar a life time is not enough.So i think living with a girlfriend who's of another culture seems to make an expedition as you don't know for sure what she will do the next day.Some may say love can solve all problems.But i can't bear a girl who i love have another culture.When i chat with others,she just stand and listen,but can't say a little.That is too bad.How does the love begin without common culture.That is the problem. ............. That is just my own opinion.
