Relationships vary by country and so do expectations for dating. Teaching and living abroad shouldn't mean putting your love life on hold.On the other hand, dating someone from another culture can be extra rewarding.As far as contraception goes, condoms are the best option.It is rare to meet a woman on birth control pills, because they are expensive and difficult to obtain.
There are certain women that only try to date black men and men that only try to date white women. • With family: If you get to the point where you meet their family, expect a bit of resistance.
You can't fall back on Plan B to get out of trouble either, since it is even more expensive and can only be purchased with a date-stamped doctor's prescription. It varies depending on the person, but a lot of men and women do not use condoms.
If you choose to be sexually active, always carry condoms on dates (girls too).
