How was it? Lol... I'm just curious... Trying to snoop around... Are there any big adjustments? Or as long as you love each other everything else follows. Please share...

Hi dear, I have thought of it several times. As I am having a very open mindedness, I am not against going for it. But someone suits to fit in my likes. It is something extra and it should have its own pureness. Just for the sake of something is not my aim. There should have 100% interest from both the sides and wish to be together with also. Because, life and people are different. We travels all over the world, but due to geographical and other barriers, many are purposively will not get involves in such things. Having such things are like a dream. I think if I had something like, I may be very happy. But sorry to say, as of now it is quite unfortunate .... Regards, Thank-s

Hi, Having a relationship with someone who has a different culture is a phase of learning a new things in life. I never encounter it in my life. My husband and I are Asian chinese people and we have almost same culture on each other.it just we are from different country. The most important is to have an agreement from both party parents in order to have a stable relationship. Some parents may prefer their kids to have a partner from the same culture,etc. Once no objection from both side parents,then it is depend fully on the couple to make an adjustment on their own side. Time will make things go smoothly.So let's the nature takes course.

First of all let me say that I am not racist but I went out with two different races at sometime in my life. First with a white male who I met. He was very nice but I was honestly embarassed. I'm Mexican so we went to a club that was mainly hispanics. We just stood around looking at everyone dance. That day I found that it really bothered me to have people look at us oddly. I really think it was me who was so immature in the way I felt. The other time I went out with a man who was middle eastern. He was very nice to me, in fact he was too protective. I knew from the beginning in his culture that they really take too fondly of him dating out of his culture. He had several friends we visited so I didn't understand what they said which bothered me. I guess I knew from the beginning it wasn't going to happen because his family as well as mine really didn't care for each others cultures. Again immaturity played a big role in this whole thing. I think it's ok to date other cultures but you really have to consider religions, cultures, how your children will turn out, etc... When you are young, your family has bigger expectations for who you will marry. As an older adult now, practically middle age, I think the experience would be different. To learn new customs or countries would be exciting.

Wow, thanks for sharing. Now I have a better of view of what to expect if I want to have a relationship with someone with a different culture. I think I have to keep my mind open, study about their ways and culture and compare it to mine. Mmm, that way I have a better understanding and will try to consider what's okay and what's not. I appreciate you sharing. Hope you have a good day.
