Dating traditions in different cultures
If you are thinking of dating someone from another culture, you should be sensitive to such cultural differences that might impact the behavior of your date.However, at the end of the day, once you look beneath the surface, people are guided by their human commonalities and are likely looking for the same things in a date.There are certain courtship overtures involved in a dating situation.And there are differences in how men and women, court their dates.Dating people from completely different worlds than mine has not only broadened my own, but it has bettered it overall.Here's why: Of course, we've all had to sit through high school classes of Spanish, French, Italian and Latin.A college girl working three jobs and saving for her loans and her future couldn't make her "travel around the world in 80 days" dream a reality.But, instead of embarking on a journey across the world, I've embarked on the journey of cross-culture romance.
My boyfriend's grandparents, while they do know English, speak Greek as their native tongue.
In Russia, for instance, it is considered a sign of romantic interest if a man peels a banana and offers it to a woman.
If you are a man who doesn’t have any romantic interest in a Russian woman, don’t do this as a courtesy.
My boyfriend, on the other hand, was raised Greek-Orthodox, and his parents are first-generation American.
While my boyfriend is an incredible human on his own, his culture is amazing in its own ways.
