When you are in love with someone who belongs to your usual environment, you somehow know them and things are easier. However, when you fall in love with a stranger, who may even be a foreigner, things are quite different.
They have a different mentality, besides belonging to a different culture.
We have the impression that everyone is the same now, thanks to the globalization in all fields. The world is not disconnected as it was in the previous centuries: all countries are constantly exchanging goods, messages, news, products, inhabitants, and many things more.
However, the people of each country have a peculiar mentality.
What is mentality? It is the way someone interprets reality and acts in it.
People that have a mentality influenced by traditions are different from people that are dominated by modernism for example, and if you are in love with someone who belongs to a family with a mentality totally different to yours, things will be quite difficult between you two.
Partners of foreigners have to face many difficulties. Many times their adaptation to the life of their companion, their acceptance of their habits and ideas and many things more, transform their romance into a big challenge.
If you are in love with a foreigner, be careful, especially if you don’t speak the same language well. There are many things that you cannot understand, not only when they talk, but also in their behavior.
When you observe a person that belongs to your country, you can immediately conclude many things, because you know how to recognize what is original from what is banal, what is expensive from what is cheap, etc. You know all the details that may reveal many things about the other person, even without having the chance to talk with them and learning who they really are.
A foreigner may seem to be a great person, but this could be only an impression.
If you could talk with him or her in the same language and you could analyze many details in their behavior that you cannot, because you don’t know their mentality well, you would be able to notice many things in their personality or in their life that you dislike, while when you have a communication based on only a few words and actions with the other person, you cannot understand who they really are.
You had better avoid relationships with foreigners, unless this is really unavoidable, because you like one of them very much.
In this case, be very cautious. Try to learn as much as you can about them, and learn better their language or the language through which you talk with them.
Many times, a romance between people from different cultures and mentalities can be very beautiful and long-lasting, because they may find out that besides all their differences, there are many similarities in their behavior.
What is really important in a relationship is the other person’s personality. If their personality fits with yours, you’ll be happy!
However, if you are in love with a foreigner, you’ll have more obstacles and difficulties in order to find out who they really are, because of all the problems we have already examined and many others. So, do your best in order to learn everything you can about the unknown person before getting too involved with them, without really understanding who you are with.
