    Umm when someone is learning a language, is OK to correct them. Only Americans think this is rude.

    Can’t with the 15 clicks. They need to contact Huffpost, and a lot of other online publications to see who set their slideshows up and ask if they can help out. That being said, if your going to date/marry someone from another culture keep and open mind, and enjoy the experience. I married a Black/Mediterranean man, and the Mediterranean side is entertaining and interesting to say the least.

    Haha good article. Especially about the jealous females. I’m Jamaican and my boyfriend is Persian and some look at me like I killed their pet. :-p

    Be open-minded and enjoy the ride.

  • Simple, learn as much as you can from them. Ask questions if you dont understand something. And spend time with his/her family and friends when the chance comes your way. Trying their food helps also. Sorry I couldnt take clicking through 15 pages of this.

      I saw 15 pages and just went straight to the comment section. That is just too much. Please find a more user friendly way to prove how much traffic your site gets. @Crystal I agree with you 100%. If you want a lasting relationship be interesting in learning all aspects of who they are. That should set a solid foundation.
