One could easily say that this is by far the single, most important rule of online dating.
Am I saying that those who date outside of their culture are not in tune with their own?
Certainly not, but they certainly have embraced other cultures more and are willing to look past any real, imagined or expected obstacles.
If you fail to do this, you’ll just end up misleading someone instead of spending time trying to impress the person who could be the love of your life.

And why was it better to date a white person rather than another African?
Some field digging I did a bit of digging to get the views of other people of African origin on intercultural dating.When I spoke to another Congolese person they understood me, but when I spoke to someone who didn’t speak my mother tongue, conversations couldn’t be as natural as I wanted them to be.A Ghanaian friend of mine told me “My (Jamaican) boyfriend really tried to speak my language because he realised that it was important to me.” Ethnic capital of the world For me, a twenty-something year old Congolese woman who grew up in the city of London – a city I like to call “the ethnic capital of Europe” – dating someone from a different culture was not a problem.I can get with someone from Cameroon or Ivory Coast because they speak French but not a Nigerian or a Ghanaian.” I agreed with Alexi.Being a fluent English speaker who also communicated with her parents in her mother tongue, I tended to slip between languages without thinking about it.There’s nothing racist about this, so don’t feel ashamed if you find African-Americans more attractive than Asian people, or the other way around.
