Latino & InterCULTURE Dating: The Struggles
If you're Latino and dating someone from a completely different cultural background than you, what are some of the struggles or hardships you experienced from being culturally different from each other?
So let's say you're Dominican and you're dating someone who is French. Or you're Mexican dating someone who is from Jamaica. Or Puerto Rican who is dating someone who is from India.

What were/is some of your biggest hurdles?

I have mentioned this before, I have dated inter-racially and inter-culturally before. Just like any other relationship, you're going to have the tough shit you're gonna have to deal with.
I wouldn't say this has happened often, but did struggle with the fact that one of my ex-boyfriend came from a family where race was a weird thing. My darker color was a problem, and it did put a strain on our relationship
As I have gotten older, and more experienced in dating/relationships I've kinda figured out how to deal with differences that concerns race and culture. However, I am definitely always learning something new! What's your story?

I'm from a place that has an OK latino population here in Eugene (Eugene, Oregon home of the University of Oregon Ducks) but I'm such a weird latino that only white girls like me lol I'm really waning to start dating more latina women but they juat don't click with me. let me tell you why I think that is. 1Im into nerdy stuff like science, philosophy, physics, comics, Sci-Fi, Anime and stuff… 2im not 6 foot lol 3im from Mexico was born there, on top of that I'm not of mixed blood I'm 100% native of Mexico. My people are called the Zapotec and while im suoer proud of my heritage mixed blood latinas see me as sub par because of my indigenous roots. 4I grew up on east coast hiphop and don't listen to Latin music. My heroes are Nas, Big Pun, Rakim, Black Rob, Wu-Tang and the like… west coast latinas like 2pac and stuff along with Latin music. 5Im a professional Dj. While I don't use the Dj thijg to get girls… (I'm 35 now way past foolishness) Its very easy to be portrayed as a player and as a womanizer. 6-I'm not into bailes, quinceñeras, parrandas, bodas, primera comunión…. but i will show up for the food 😂😂 so there you have it… I'm Mexican but act black, I'm a cool dj but am into the nerdiest things ever… I have a gigantic heart but stand only 5-7… . yeah forever alone lone… lol well at least when it comes to latina women lol
