Advice on intercultural dating
Society has historically valued some people over others.
This allows for learning about and embracing diversity on an intimate level, but couples continue to face social prejudice and obstacles.One couple could consist of a recovering alcoholic and a mechanic and the other a surgeon and a banker.Intercultural dating relationships are often born of characteristics similar to those that are culturally homogeneous, according to Ling Chen, professor of communication studies at Hong Kong Baptist University in "Communication in Intercultural Relationships," a chapter in the "Handbook of International and Intercultural Communication." Reported reasons for relationship formation include comfort level, personal attraction and common interests and goals.Such groups of people -- those with power -- are awarded privileges that can interrupt the harmony of cross-cultural dating relationships.As an example, a man accustomed to living in poverty attends a charity event hosted by his new girlfriend's country club.
Please keep in mind for those that want to get married in a specific timeframe, know that they can spot out that you probably really want to get married, but men can smell that desire and mistake it as desperation and it may scare them off. In fact, they are marrying in their late 30s and 40s as opposed to late 20s like Americans. That’s a great way to learn the culture and society. You do have some people who have kids in their teens and early twenties, but that’s the exception.
