And being anywhere from 5 to 7 hours difference in time, they literally are, too. However, times force great changes and leaps in advancement force gaps in our likenesses and make them far more diverse and different. Well, you get the idea. Here are ten of many, as we all know ways we, as Americans, are different from our jovial brethren across the pond: Government Our Governments could not be any more unalike if we purposely attempted to create them so. And, as it turns out, we the US kind of did. Not happy with the persecution the European Government was dishing out to specific religious groups, the original Pilgrims who ended up on American shores would eventually go on to pass down ideas for a new government in their new land — despite the fact that they persecuted people in equally if not worse ways than the nations they left behind. Here are the governmental differences spelled out as clearly as possible:

Why is it better for me to be with a white man than it is to be with a Nigerian? Why would you want to be with a Nigerian? Look how strong their culture is. Are there no more Congolese men? How many marriages do you know of people from two different African countries that have lasted till old age?
Stick to your own culture. I pondered those phrases:
Controversy[ edit ] Anthropologist Helen Fisher in What happens in the dating world can reflect larger currents within popular culture. For example, when the book The Rules appeared, it touched off media controversy about how men and women should relate to each other, with different positions taken by columnist Maureen Dowd of The New York Times  and British writer Kira Cochrane of The Guardian. Sara McCorquodale suggests that women meeting strangers on dates meet initially in busy public places, share details of upcoming dates with friends or family so they know where they’ll be and who they’ll be with, avoid revealing one’s surname or address, and conducting searches on them on the Internet prior to the date.
The Culture Differences of Dating Between China and Western Countries What is the significance of American dating? Often dating means no more than getting to know one another and having some is often the beginning of a friendship with someone whom you may like but not necessarily marry.
I had not dated terribly much before. There had been two relationships that lasted for a while — with a Japanese guy and with a Korean guy. We met through friends of friends. At the first meeting we exchanged mail addresses, met up a few times after that and at some point it just happened. Then, I had to leave the country simple reason: Thus, little annoyances turn into huge problems. He also says that, as soon as Japanese women have babies, they turn into mothers, with not hint of the awesome wife you had before, destroying romance and attraction.
As most Japanese people, he is hugely interested in food and works too much. Fortunately he has gotten used to it, but he will not hold my hand in front of his parents unless I initiate it. Kissing is still extremely embarrassing for him, and so the physical part of the relationship happens at home. At first, this sudden change in affection as soon as the door closed behind us was weird, but now I actually like it.
Oh, and Germany has a ridiculously good reputation in Japan. At least not a lot.
Americans value individualism a lot. They do not like unasked advice. For example, if it is cold outside and you are not dressed appropriately, others are not expected to comment it. Even if you are walking with a child who is unsufficiently dressed. Americans respect the freedom of choice. Americans do not like to be bothered with other people’s problems as well.

Cross Cultural Marriage and Relationships Marrying someone from another country In the following article Vince Appleby, the staff writer at International Pen Pal, looks at starting a cross cultural relationship or cross cultural marriage and the pitfalls and benefits of such relationships. Whether you are a Christian marrying into an Arab family abroad, a man seeking a woman from an other Latin country, to give two examples, or even if you are just moving to another country to work, the cross cultural perspective here should be of interest to you.
So, can cross cultural marriage with people from other countries work? Well yes of course cross cultural marriage can work, but there are both advantages and disadvantages to think about when considering starting a relationship with someone from a different culture or country. It all depends on what you expect when marrying someone from another country and whether that someone can give you what you expect — and whether you can meet their expectations too, of course.
Not to mention an awareness of cross cultural differences, perspectives and issues. Some of these cross cultural issues apply, and in differing ways, to online pen pals relationships, but this article will concentrate on cross cultural dating relationships, that is cross cultural relationships that can lead to long term commitments such as marriage. To begin with, whether any cross cultural marriage or relationship works or not depends first and foremost on the individual personalities of the people in the relationship, their communication skills, and not on their culture or country.
However, culture and country can have an influence on the relationship. For example, if someone from a particular culture has a certain perspective or expectation of a marriage relationship which expectations come from the way they have brought up and what they have been led to expect from such a relationship then that will be bound to affect the cross cultural relationship, however slightly. On the whole though, relationships depend upon the people in them, not where those people live or the country or culture they come from.
Starting a cross cultural relationship with someone from another country or even inside your own country can be very exciting.

Outsiders and especially mainland Americans will increasingly be called upon to understand Puerto Rico and her unique culture. Apart from the very obvious difference in the language, many of these cultural differences are harder to specify and quantify than are the formal elements in common just mentioned. At social and cultural levels profound differences do exist between people of different backgrounds. When the Spanish forced the Tainos into slavery, virtually the entire indigenous population was decimated, except for a few Amerindians who escaped into the remote mountains.
Puerto Rico also has a rich African culture dating from the importation of Africans as slaves by the Spaniards in past centuries. The people of Puerto Rico represent a mixture of races, cultures, languages and religions. They draw their unique heritage from the Tainos, from Spanish loyalists who sought refuge here, from the African slaves and from other Caribbean islanders who came to the island in search of jobs.
The Spanish they speak is a mix too, different somewhat from Castillian Spanish, with many words borrowed from the pre-Colombian Amerindian tongue right up to modern-day English. American culture has had a progressive effect upon Puerto Rican culture since but especially so after the 40’s.
