Intercultural dating is a thing of the present. Most of my friends and family members have dated or are in a relationship with someone of a different culture. I personally love men that are mixed. Perhaps it’s their exotic looks or identity issues (trust me – many have them!), but something about a halfie is irresistible.
As a Dominican, I am also mixed. Most Latinos are. Many people from my culture have African, Native Indian (Taino, perhaps) and Spanish (as in from Spain) ancestry. No wonder non-Caribbeans often ask me, “What are you?” I’m a human being, fool! Indians often think I’m one of them, particularly the men. But I don’t eat curry, man! Please pass the tostones.
So, what is it like to date outside of your culture? In my experience, it can be complicated. I am looking forward to the day where I meet my boyfriend’s Vietnamese momma and begrudgingly try her Pho. I really just love Dominican food. Others feel the same about intercultural dating. What is it like to date a Jamaican or a Latina or a Black woman? Here are three funny videos on what it’s like to date outside your culture.
