Dating foreign women is a common occurrence among many men nowadays. Foreign dating and foreign brides (even mail order brides) have been around since colonial days.  Today’s technology has made it possible for anyone, anywhere, to meet, speak, and even marry. After just a few clicks, you could possibly find the woman of your dreams, half a world away.
Due to this, many prospective lovers have ventured out of their national borders and comfort zone to look for love. International marriage and interracial marriage, consequently, are now more routine than ever before.
Indeed, it’s quite the tale for the grandkids, how you and your wife found love despite the distance. Like in all good stories however, there will be trials along the way. To help you decide whether foreign love is for you or not, here are some of the pros and cons of dating foreign women:

  • Long-distance Relationship
The first thing that comes to mind when considering foreign women as partners is the physical distance. While it can certainly be overcome, this is one of the major challenges of international dating. Due to the distance, initial trust issues can be nearly inevitable. This may result in some initial hesitancy and lack of intimacy between couples.
While it can be overcome, the potential consequences can be deal-breakers. There are certainly many couples who have survived this stage of the relationship. This proves that such situations are most-definitely tenable in the long term. Having just a smidgen of creativity, tons of patience, and an unwavering resolve are the keys to surviving this initial hurdle.
  • Expensive Trips Due to the fact that you and your foreign girlfriend are from different sides of the globe, a simple visit could be quite expensive. While it’s certainly a grand romantic gesture, it could cost you a few grand as well. But it’s better to have loved and lost (replaceable) money than to keep the money and lost the woman of your dreams, right?

  • Cultural Differences
One of the biggest perceived limiting factors in dating foreign women are differences in culture. Foreign women (who could one day become foreign brides) may have different beliefs, practices, and traditions than what you’re used to. Norms in your culture may be non-starters in hers and vice versa.
There may also be handicaps to communication in the form of language barriers.  Just take some time for both of you to adjust and adapt. You might be pleasantly surprised at how much you enjoy each other’s culture.

  • Long-term Relationship

Long distance relationships can be a struggle. If you get through the rough patch, however, you could find yourself in a long-term relationship. Any woman who can make it through these initial relationship stresses is a keeper. Only a foreign girlfriend who is really willing to commit can invest herself in loving someone beyond her physical grasp. Fortunately for you, this is the case with many foreign women.
Amazingly they are often risk-takers when it comes to love. They do not easily give up and will strive to keep the relationship afloat. Foreign women, after all, have perspective regarding history and the hardships their ancestors endured. This makes them willing to gamble on lovers with distance and differences, having the larger goal of love in mind.
  • Adventures in a New Place
It’s understandable for men to hesitate dating foreign women due to the possible financial implications involved with a visit. But think of it this way, you can go to a place you’ve never been, with a tour guide who’s as fascinated with you as you are with the location.
You will also get to explore and discover new tastes, places, and adventures with someone you want to start a new life with. While the local knowledge will be great, the memories you make with your foreign girlfriend will be priceless.

  • Discover a New Culture

Your cultural differences can be more of a boon than bane depending on how open you are to trying new things. Conflicts and misunderstandings are inevitable in every relationship, but differences in culture and tradition can amplify your problems if you allow them to.
Taking steps to make your differences are what draws you closer rather than further apart, is a choice you make and one you have to be open to. If you are, you will learn many new things from your foreign girlfriend and broaden your perspective.
Simultaneously you can impart your own culture and traditions to her, bringing you closer on two fronts. Each day can be a day of discovery and learning if you want it to be. Can you imagine just how interesting every morning must be with her?
These are just a few of the advantages and disadvantages of dating foreign women. Whether you’re willing to take the plunge and get outside your comfort zone is ultimately up to you. True love — genuine and pure — cannot be hindered by distance and knows no adversity, just temporary inconvenience. You can be sure that when dating foreign women, you’ll find a love that transcends geographical and cultural barriers.
