When you're dating outside your culture, it can definitely be a learning experience -- a long with a lot of miscommunication.
Even though we often talk about interracial dating, I think it's important to consider that although two people may share the same skin color, they may have totally different cultural backgrounds. For example, a black person from the Dominican Republic, and a black person from Canada may grow up with two totally different cultural experiences.
Dating outside of my culture, I have realized that various groups may have different love languages, expectations, and certain view on how roles should be played in a relationship. I am currently with someone who comes from a completely different culture than myself. Although I am Latina, I am totally Americanized (and southern with a bit of Brooklyn). It has been a few years since my partner has been in the U.S.A., he has very strong cultural bond to his first home overseas.
One thing we do share in common -- is that family is VERY important to us. Latinos are very loyal to blood, and he shares that same view with me.
Although our communication is pretty awesome, there are some words and phrases I have to explain. And I do try not to use slang too often, because it can be confused or misinterpreted. Concluding this thought, interculturally dating can be fun...but it can also get confusing.

Pros? Cons? Experiences?
