Dating people from different cultures

What we do share deeply is our sense of being mixed, being isolated, and on a more rewarding note, being so alike in so many different ways.

From personal experience I can say that the easiest way to deal with this is to try to live somewhere in between where you both have to travel nearly equal distances to visit family. You’ll have to try new things For me, one of the best things about having an Indian SO is that I can experience a foreign culture in a way that I never would have as a simple tourist.

And when we do ask our love interest if he wants to have a relationship, it’s because we already kissed or at least gotten really close. There’s no such thing as DTR (Defining The Relationship) because exclusivity is implied.

Once two people kiss while sober (French teenagers drink a lot, as it’s legal), they can already consider the other one as their boyfriend/girlfriend, and assume the relationship is going to be exclusive — there’s no need to define it.

However, it has also meant that I’ve needed to be open to experiences that, at times, have weirded me out or made me feel uncomfortable.
