A lot of people that I know like to date people who are most compatible with them. Whether it is socioeconomic class, race, or even culture. Culture can be especially tricky in the African American community. Well, technically I can only attest to the African American culture personally, but still.
It was a totally different experience dating a guy who came from money (aka silver spoons) and dating someone who grew up extremely poor. Although I shared common ground with both, the dynamics were definitely different. Not saying good or bad, just…different.
Silver spoons and I clashed on politics, while the guy who grew up poor thought I was way over the top with how I lived (i.e. we had different lifestyles, tastes, etc.)
When it comes to dating, are you comfortable exploring a relationship with someone who has a different culture than you?
How would you handle the “clashes” that may come when there are different socioeconomic classes involved?
How important do you think it is when considering a long term relationship? Does it make it easier when you both have the exact same background?
