5 Reasons Why You Should Date Someone From Another Country

date someone from another country

So why you should date someone from another country? Let’s consider this. Relationships get boring within some months or if you are lucky, it might take a year or two before the boredom strikes in. I mean if you guys have just started dating, enjoy these days, because both of you will adore everything of each other and some of those things are going to be a real pain in the butt after 6 or 7 months tops!

There is so much wrong with our generation and the way we “date”.

We urge for better and better all the time, leaving behind the good people we already have. This is exactly what is wrong with our dating system. Does dating even have a system though?

However, dating someone from another country can be a really fun-filled ride. It is more exciting, more adventurous, a little confusing and just like a roller-coaster ride.

There are obviously obstacles when you date someone from another country.But let’s look at the bright side, shall we?

So, why date someone from another country?

Well, here are some exciting reasons why dating someone from another country can be a great journey.


If you belong to the same country, your romance techniques are somewhat going to be the same. That sounds too boring, right? Touching the same way and you know exactly what is going to happen next. How? You are already well-known to the romance type of your country.

Bedtime gets so lousy due to this, right? There is no surprise; like hey, I didn’t know people can touch like that, hug like that and we obviously don’t want to go into details here.

Dating someone from another country brings in a different romance experience for you, there are risks involved and there is so much more than just talking about how your day was or whatever is happening around in town.

There are day-to-day problems, how to communicate at the exact times and what to say and how to say it. There is much more than just a typical romance experience.

Learning About Yourself:

When you move outside a country, you get to know so much more about development and languages.

We have been talking so much about positivism and how to bring in great changes in life. Moving outside your country brings in optimism. You learn a lot about yourself and your abilities.

How you are capable of blending into different cultures and how courageous are you in learning new things. Thus, you explore not a country but yourself also.


Aren’t we just stuck inside our own tiny box of thoughts? And this tiny box only consists of things that are important to us. Who has time to think about the world, right?

Dating someone from another country allows you to learn new cultures and get to know about the various ways, people spend their lives. You learn new languages because maybe the person you have fallen in love with is not really fluent in English.

This does take up a lot of your time and you might get the thoughts: “if s/he ditches me, does all of this goes to waste?”

Well, it won’t. Think of it as your own benefit (am I being selfish? No I guess this is just self-love happenin’ to me right now). The language you learn might help you in moving to that country and seeking for a great job opportunity there?

Or will I sound too mean to say that you might find someone better in the same country? And telling them will get a lot easier if you have the language at your fingertips!

Accepting Differences:

Don’t we hate it when someone doesn’t understand out the point of view? We certainly do!

I prefer plugging in my earphones and pretending that they don’t even exist. Simple it is (you can also try it). But you know what? We need to learn to accept differences. It definitely makes life better.

When you date someone from another country, you automatically know that they think completely different from you.

You guys think on a difference of 180 degrees. But when you are in love, you give it a try. And if you are successful, you are able to learn and adapt yourself to accept differences.

Accepting the fact that a person cannot think alike, makes relationships so much easier and to be honest, peaceful as well.

Fighting Experience:

So when you are dating someone from another country, it is different. When you fight; you don’t know what to expect.

You have no backup lines and you are simply left to whatever comes will be seen. This is where learning the language is going to help you. They won’t be able to say anything bad directly on your face (kudos to that).

You remain conscious of what to say back while you are fighting and this eventually helps in building a deeper intellect and relationship.


Is dating such a wonderful experience right?

Actually, it is, only if you get the right person.

Finding someone perfect within your country gets too messy at times.

We know their natures too much. We know what to expect and what not to expect and it gets dull and boring with time.

I am not saying that dating within your own country is the reason relationships break and I am totally not saying that you must date someone outside your country to grow better as a person. I hope you ain’t getting me wrong!

Dating outside a country is a wonderful experience. If you fall in love with a French woman/man, don’t think it won’t ever work. It is definitely a risk. You think that it might not work…but oh, what if it does?


  1. I would like to date a Ghanaian man but am afraid of what their cultures might be. Wat should I do coz am a Ugandan?

    • I would say go for it because it will be a great learning experience for you… & do please read my 3rd point “Cultures” again and tell me if that helped =)
