When you come to really think about it, cross cultural dating isn’t just a story of love. It’s also an adventure of discovery. When we say discovery, we don’t just mean discovering another person, culture, and language. We also mean a journey of discovering yourself.

What Are Some Cross Cultural Dating Pitfalls?

  1. 1. When you come to really think about it, cross cultural dating isn’t just a story of love. It’s also an adventure of discovery. When we say discovery, we don’t just mean discovering another person, culture, and language. We also mean a journey of discovering yourself.

  2. 2. One of the biggest pitfalls of cross cultural romance is the language barrier. While it’s easy to date someone who knows English, the fact is that most dates involve dating someone who needs to communicate through a translator. More info on: http://www.sirensongs.com/how-to-get-a-girlfriend/dating-tips-for-men/
  3. 3. Another cross-cultural dating pitfall is the understanding (or lack of understanding) of each other’s culture. Some cultures value individualism more than anything, and some cultures value family above all else. More info on: http://www.sirensongs.com/how-to-get-a-girlfriend/dating-tips-for-men/
  4. 4. For example, in the Philippines it’s almost the rite of passage for foreigners to eat balut or boiled three-week ducks egg that will make your skin crawl when you eat it at daylight. Also, some cultures require drinking together in order to be part of the family. More info on: http://www.sirensongs.com/how-to-get-a-girlfriend/dating-tips-for-men/
  5. 5. These may be small things but when you add them together, it could actually get on your nerves. Another sticky issue in cross- cultural dating is money. In most cases, the man is from a rich country trying to find true love among the women from a third- world country. More info on: http://www.sirensongs.com/how-to-get-a-girlfriend/dating-tips-for-men/
  6. 6. You may not mind dating someone from a country that’s poorer than your home country but your family might and may not approve of your relationship. But this is just for starters. More info on: http://www.sirensongs.com/how-to-get-a-girlfriend/dating-tips-for-men/
  7. 7. Before you jump into the cross-cultural dating scene, make sure you read everything there is to know about the other person’s culture. But this is just the first step. The next more important step is to get to know the woman. More info on: http://www.sirensongs.com/how-to-get-a-girlfriend/dating-tips-for-men/
