Dating And Relationships: Problems You Will Face When

Imagine being with someone who is from a completely different country than you, with a completely different set of cultural views and traditions. Dating someone from another culture can be quite challenging in having different views, beliefs, and values weighing you down. Cultural and religious difference plays a major role in lives of any interracial couple, especially in the beginning of a relationship when you are just getting to know each other.

If you and the girl you are dating are from different countries with opposite culture and traditions then you are going to face certain problems and the only thing you can do to make the relationship working is to understand those problems and resolve it accordingly.

Language & Communication

Initially, it is going to be different how you two communicate in a relationship, don’t simply expect her to respond or grasp the concept of things in a way you want, the key is to be patient. Good communication is the most important thing in any relationship, if neither of you are fluent in each other native languages, there is a chance of misunderstanding, don’t get offended but deal with it calmly. Your sense of humor is going to be a saving grace of the relationship, take interest in her worldviews. Also, think of it as an opportunity to learn a new language.

I have seen a couple from opposite cultures and as exciting as it may sound, the problems between the couple arises usually due to misunderstanding and arguments over different topics. I remember a friend who argues his Filipino girlfriend on politics and this didn’t really end well.
