Dating: When cultures collide

I think one of the best parts of dating is when you get to meet someone new who can expose you to new experiences. Whether they hip you to a new language, different foods, or even music, our lives can actually become richer from some of our dating misadventures!

While having things in common can be good, dating someone from a totally different background, culture, or race can be enlightening! One of my friends is dating a guy from India. She is from Atlanta and has never been out of the country. Since she has dated him, she says that outlook on the world has really changed.

Of course, dating someone from a different culture can have its challenges. Sometimes customs, traditions, and values differ so much, it becomes hard to manage a relationship that has to merge all these things.

Have you ever dated someone who is from a different cultural background? Do you think it made things more interesting?

I love meeting people of different interests and cultural backgrounds — then again i am open minded.

Like any other relationship you bring your experiences and they bring theirs, how you mesh that together might depend on how you look at everything , closed minded and only seeing one path you might not have a good relationship with anyone since your believe you and only you can be right.

Happy Friday!!!!

Good morning :)

Yes I’ve dated people from different cultural backgrounds. It does make things more interesting and there are more challenges as well. As an American I find that even dating someone who is also American but part of a different subculture will have it’s challenges and interesting nuances.

Lee – I’m right there with you.

My exes family was from the island (Trinidad & Tobago) and i really embraced their culture, especially the food. I must say at first, it was hard to understand them but if you’re around long enough, you start to pickup on things. I feel like his family appreciated that I was open to learning about them….doesn’t mean me and his mom didn’t get into it though. lol

I too love meeting people from all walks of life. I’ve dated this guy from Nigeria but he was entirely too controlling and deodorant wasn’t his friend. Nonetheless, given the opportunity, I would embrace dating outside my culture. Always good to learn new things and learn about other peoples’ walk in life.

Good morning.

Dating someone from a different culture is very exciting esp when that person is enthused in teaching you about it. . Everything from art to cuisine and the way of life is so facinating again only if the person telling you is enthused about his/her culture. The only problem I’ve had in dating a guy from a different culture is sports. Most of the guys are from spanish background and their favorite passtime is soccer and I’m not a soccer fan.

Good morning!

“…esp when that person is enthused in teaching you about it.” – That’s the key because if they’re not and you keep asking about this, about that, and they become frustrated, slow demise.

MsAtl ~ the first time that scent hit my nostrils I chalked it up to him just getting off work and perhaps it wore off. The next time I was like “WTH?” I asked if he would like to use my deodorant before we went out and he said he doesn’t like to use it. Huh, how do you walk around like that all day. Do you not smell yourself. Your armpits have their own racing flag alerting people to run for cover. I remember laying on the couch in his arms watching a movie thinking to myself “I can’t do this, I just can’t.” Every time I hear “I’ll do Anything For You, by Denroy Morgan” I think of him. We got down on the dance off that song one evening.

I’m all about learning about other cultures. I’m that coworker or neighbor that’s gonna ask you 10 rounds of questions….what’s this, how did y’all celebrate that, same something for me in your native language, what happens in your country around this (that or the other), how long have you been in the states, why did you leave, do you miss home, do you have relatives there…..so forth and so on. lolololol I’m that person that can sightsee and take pics, talk to the natives and spend every vacation (if I could), in another country.

Now, for all of that, I’m not really big on dating outside my race or other cultures. Just my preference…..especially Africans.

O/T: On BO: My fomer coworker always kept a small container of FDS in her purse. She was super clean…lol She’d give herself a hit before getting on the train (heading home). Now, I always though if you gotta use FDS then you might need an appointment…lololol Masking odors ain’t a cure. Deoderant, yes, a feminine spray ummm, not so much. Not saying she had an ordor, cause I never detected anything, but in general, folks itching or needing to cover an odor needs to see they gyn. Leave them (yes them) sprays alone and getcha yaself seen about…lolololol

YSIC ~ don’t think he expected me to pursue him. He was very dictatorial in that when I was looking for a new apartment he demanded that I live close to him if not in the same subdivision. When I wouldn’t agree to that, he offered to pay my rent for a year. I didn’t agree to that either, although as a struggling student it did sound good. I knew, even at the tender age of 20, I couldn’t be indebted to someone just to make my college years more bearable. From there things just went down hill. We were together for only 3 weeks. So, I don’t really consider having truly dated someone outside of my culture. Three weeks of stench can last a lifetime.

Sometimes you can’t get back by the house to bush midday…lolol But, I don’t feel like I can’t talk or ever be without….cause I don’t have the funky breath. :) Now if you’re doing that to cover up you bad breath, see the dentist or the doctor. It’s either in your mouth or likely your belly.

I’m just kidding…sort of. That same FDS coworker made sure she brushed a couple of times at work. I ain’t doing that!! This other chick is in there everyday doing the same. I mean, I brush and floss and usually get a good report when I go for my cleanings. For me that suffices.

I think I’m going to go with bad breath. I work with a woman who’s breath smells like she eats dirty socks for breakfast every morning. I just don’t get it. No, I’ve never told her, but I’ve come close to saying something. Even as outspoken as I am, I didn’t speak up. I have left mints and toothpast and mouthwash on her desk. Don’t think she knows it is I who have left her such great party favors.

I had on this dress with a nautical(sailorlike) collar, but instead of navy it was red with white trim on the collar. Cute, kind of a wrap dress that was straight and sleeveless. I had a sweater I would throw over my arms in the office, because that was back when sleeveless was frowned upon and I worked for a bank. I had on nude heels. I stepped out at lunch and you would have thought I had walked out in a bikini. Men were freaking out.

Morning, folks.

“Have you ever dated someone who is from a different cultural background?”

Yep. More often than not, actually.

“Do you think it made things more interesting?”

I suppose so. For me it’s just always been a personal preference. I think it’s probably a function of growing up in a backwoods, po-dunk hick town. I wanted nothing to do with all those redneck motherf__kers I grew up around, so I always went for the exchange students (thankfully, there was 1 family in town that always hosted exchange students every year, otherwise, I’d have had no social life at all in HS). I guess that just carried over into adulthood. lol

Spending time in Miami, I have dated several women from different cultures. Two in particular come to mind, Yanick who was from Haiti and Paula from Guyana. Both had beautiful, dark skin with impressive hips, thighs and azz. A potnah of mine was dating Yanick’s older sister (she was gorgeous as well) and they introduced us. She was more subservient than the women I was accustomed to. We dated for a while, but it ended unceremoniously. Now, Paula was my girl. She had not been in the states very long, but had a nice whip and a raw crib. I eventually found out she was bringing in pounds on cruise ships. She was more scared of the INS than the police. They were in the country illegally and would always be fearful of that knock at the door from immigration. I mean serious fear. If her sister was late coming home, she would panic and think the worst. That’s a fear I had never experienced or even thought of. I used to really put it on Paula. I can remember her saying repeatedly in that heavy Jamaican sounding accent “You f*&K like a Champion!!” Then one day I was taking a shower at her crib. She comes in the bathroom and starts taking a dump, like right in front of me. I remember her saying “I bet you think I’m a bush woman”. I’m like naw baby, but dayum…..it’s kinda awkward. We kicked it for a while until she started that, where is our relationship going, wanting to be exclusive bullshid. I wasn’t ready and we eventually and respectfully went our separate ways.

Moni- I feel you about opening weekend. It is annoying when folks are talking on phones or texting and you can see their screens lighting up. There are certain movies I will brave the opening crowds to see and the rest is either after a few weeks or RedBox.

Re: Red- I didn’t generally wear red except maybe a red sweater at Christmas. However, a couple of years ago, I bought 3 dresses for a formal event I had coming up. The first two were “oh, that’s nice” but the third, which was a floor length red gown with a scarf was “wow!” Needless to say, the other dresses went back! I got so many compliments on that red dress and still do whenever anyone sees the pictures.

I don’t even do a lot of signature purses. I will mix up fabrics and textures. denim, leather, corduroy, wool. I will mix colors (just won’t have them all on one garment – lol).

No red. I like toned downed quiet earth colors. And black? Well black anything is just sexy. Love love love it. I do black, grays and rarely brown. Every now and then, I’ll twist things up with a hint of color. But being older, I like toned down….FOR ME…..it feels classy and classic. Just like my pointed toe pumps :)

oh, there you are, Ms. disco; first, let me say, it’s a pleasure to meet you; I’ve heard so much about you, and from your first post, I can see it was primarily true.

female pimp? no such thing! and an independednt trick, aka, renegade; trust, she’ll be in hiding, cause the minute she steps foot on the blade, her whole head getting chopped off, and she gettin broke for everything!

“don’t nobody walk this cat but me”

EXACTAMUNDO! Silky Smooth thinks he can tame your shrewness, but I think he’s going to exhaust himself. Not saying you’re a shrew, just a take on the fiestiness of the character in Taming of the Shrew.

Ok, I’m going to stop with all these old a$$ references.

good one silky. but johns aren’t even on the radar. those are just regular, run of the mill, dime a dozen marks.

disco, here’s where the misconception may lie – we aren’t out to pimp the unwilling. those, or at least I’ll say my girls, come willingly; I’m not hanging out at Greyhound stations, or group homes preying on the vulnerable; I stay in my circle, and again, those in this game are in that circle. and they choose whom they want to be with.

leggs – if it comes down to somebody telling me what to do with my “stuff” then you can call me a shrew all day long.

silky – okay. you deal with them simple tricks that feel like they need a pimp. just saying, if I’m ever to trick, I won’t be a simple trick. we can agree on that and let the game do what the game do.

2C I did the whole sending cards, putting money on the phone account, sending letters everything short of visiting (he was locked up in a city where my airline didn’t have service at the time). Matter of fact I still have a box in one of my closets full of his letters. All this for someone who was a childhood friend from Germany (we’re still friends he’s a really nice guy). But as far as bond goes, no way no how, see ya. Unless you are telling me where your stash is to bond you out with I’m not doing it. But I will talk to you on the phone through the glass and keep it tight. :lol:

@MsAtl It is just unnerving and people wonder why I don’t have kids. That’s why I can only IMAGINE how that man’s mom is feeling to know he left to sell an iPhone LEGITIMATELY and never came back. :cry:

BTW I asked Siri what she was wearing one day and that’s what she said :lol: I asked her another day what she was wearing and she said “You have the wrong personal assistant”. I love playing with Siri sometimes.

YSIC- “The driver said the men took off with the his chicken wings, valued at almost $18, when he pulled out a gun.” I don’t know how they managed to search him either unless the gun was in his vehicle. The whole thing is just stupid. You got robbed and you were the only one with a gun? Really???

Since it is slow in here…

A man called into the Steve Harvey Morning Show this morning to ask for advice. His story.
He has been married for 14 years, with his wife for @ 20 years. They have no children together. They live in a house left to her by her grandmother. His wife’s mother lives with them and so does his wife’s 26 year old son, her 25 year old son (who has 10 kids, oldest one is 4 y o) and his girlfriend. The man cannot take it any more and the wife always takes her family’s side. He was trying to help her cousin and the cousin hit him in the mouth, knocked out a tooth and when he fell, two more got knocked out, but he managed to bite the cousin on the ankle. He wants to know what to do.

Now y’all know Steve acted a straight fool on clowning that man!

That sounds like the episode on Ylana Fix my Life where this woman let all these relatives move in and the husband was miserable, but never spoke his mind. What should he do. Kick everyone out but his wife…they’re grown, let them forge their own path and find their own lodging, even if it has to be in homeless shelter until they can get on their feet, KICK THEM OUT! You hit me once after I’m helping you, your a$$ is grass! Get to steppin…..

Honestly I haven’t kept up since it’s been slow, but thought I’d take one last peek before heading and found this HI LARIOUS!!! I just hollered. He asking what to do??? Ummm, keep the wife (maybe) and put the rest of them grown jokers out!!! Period. Point blank. How else they gon’ know they can make it as adults. Grant it the mama ain’t taught them too much or they’d already be out there and not tryna see who can procreate the fastest. Now back to the wife….keep her around ONLY if she can separate herself and tend to her marriage, her hubby. Give her a window. She can’t prove otherwise, send her on with her kids. Let them all be a family.

Thanks for the laugh….I’m out!!

I am amazed with all the sex education information available to us and the rampant amount of STDs running around that quite a few folks are still having unprotected sex, untested sex and no birth control…They are even trying not to get pregnant..

Folks out here are losing their dang minds…10 kids at 25yrs dang-it

One more…I read the saddest story today….A 42 y.o. preacher committed suicide. I was at a lost for words. So so sad. I sat here thinking about his wife and kids and congregation. He sent his family on to church ahead of him and then did it. A gunsot wound to the head. The article said he told his congregation sometimes he don’t think God heard him. One thing I can say, God is NOT like man. He is though ever present and as close as you let him be.
