What Nationalities Would You Not Date?

Sun Jul 13, 2008 6:46 pm

We were having a humorous conversation amongst friends the other day and I was surprised to hear the views and ideas about which nationalities they would not date. There were many reasons why and perceptions. None of them were down to any kind of racism , maybe a bit more about the unknown. Seeing as this is a multi cultural forum I was wondering what peoples own views are and if there are certain nationalities you would be hesitant or not date?? If you would not date a certain nationalitiy is it due to previous bad experience or cultural difference?

Same goes for me. If the girl is white, that's a DEFINITE plus, if she's Jewish too, that's a HUGE plus.

Is that due to your family and culture? I know alot of cultures prefer you to stay within your community etc... I come from a mixed background so it was easier but my parents still had their preferences.

Why should I exclude a huge part of the world's female population over issues like nationality , religion or race?
The few things I find important is that she has about the same level of education as myself (or better) and that she has reached acertain level of maturity. For the rest, it just depends on her personality.

Sort of. See, I am Jewish, and religion is based upon the mother. I wouldn't want my kids growing up not sure of which religion they are. My parents have made it known that they want me to marry Jewish, but the most important thing is that she makes me happy. If I find happiness with a Catholic girl, an Asian girl, etc., they will be happy for me.

In the religion side, it would just be very complicated marrying a girl who isn't Jewish, because I wouldn't want to swear my vows to Jesus or another figure that I don't believe in.

While I try to have an open mind, I can safely say that I will never date a Muslim girl, as that religion is having too many conflicts with mine right now. Kinda ironic since a couple friends of mine are Muslim...

My current partner is a Muslim and it has certainly thrown up some interesting conversations. Some stuff I agree with and some I dont but I have to say that from a cultural and personal level we share the same values and ideas of what a relationship should be. Eastern ideas among liberal Muslims are actually very comitted and secure relationships from my experience. Its all about respect. I for instance have given up eating Pork and Ham not that I ate alot of it anyway but its just something I wanted to do and in return my partner gave up smoking so it was a fair deal.

Alot of Western society has a more disposable idea about relationships from my experience.

So you wouldn't even approach an Iranian because of his/her nut job president? Obviously if he/she is willing to date you, they wouldn't want your nationality dead. So I think everything depends on your personal interactions. You cannot hold a whole nation responsible for the actions of their leaders.

While I agree that for someone who is very religious dating outside their religion makes things difficult, I also think that excluding people based on their belief is crazy (as long as said person is not a fanatic). My mom is Muslim, my dad is Christian and there has never been any problems. Although the caveat here is that while my family is religious, like most Albanians it is still pretty moderate and as OA260 said you have to learn to compromise. For example, my mom comes to church on Easter, while my dad calls the Muslim part of the family to give his wishes during their holidays.

I'm atheist, while my fiancee (who is an ethnic Chinese from the Philippines) is Roman-Catholic. Since the Catholic church will probably demand of me to convert before they'll marry us (and I'm not willing to join a religion I don't believe in), I think we'll be left with a civil marriage with the vows said in front of a government rep.

Don't count on it.

Some years ago I dated a guy from India. We got along great and seemed to enjoy each other's company, to the point that I was thinking about getting serious with him. He was a med student approaching the end of his residency, so I thought it prudent to ask what his plans were after graduation. One night he was talking about how much he missed his family and his homeland, so I asked if he was planning on returning to India once he was out of school... boy, was that a mistake! He fairly exploded and said "That's you American's answer for everything- 'Go back where you came from!' ". He then proceeded to go on at some length and in great detail about how much he hated America, hated Americans, and found every minute he spent here to be sheer torture. For a physically small person, he certainly managed to fill a room with bitterness and hatred for about a half an hour. Since all this was completely unexpected on my part, I was rendered speechless... not that I'd have been able to get a word in edgewise if I'd wanted to anyway. After he spilled all his (apparently long built-up) bile and finally stopped shouting, I said "Okay... well, I'll be going home now. Goodnight". I haven't seen or heard from him since that night.

I wouldn't refuse to go out with anyone because of their nationality, but I'd be lying if I said I'd ever fully trust how someone from another culture acted towards me to reflect their true feelings about me. Once bitten, twice shy.

I don't think there's a nationality I wouldn't date for the sake of it, I don't think you can blame a person for what their country does/did. There are certain ethnicities that I just don't find that physically attractive, though.

When I was single, I wouldn't rule out anyone based on nationality or ethnicity. I'd be more wary of religion, purely as it would be difficult to share my life with someone whose entire worldview was different to mine.

In the end, I married a fellow Christian, from South Africa  Smile

I think you are confusing nationality and heritage. Nationality and citizenship are the same thing, as nationality denotes which nation you 'belong' to or where you are born. Heritage is the the direct link to your ethnicity. My nationality/citizenship is American/Australian, but my heritage is Welsh.

I'm sticking to European, roughly my age, and Catholic only.

The trouble with dating foreigners is that they don't undestand a lot of cultural things (and vice versa). For example, Andy Pandy, Jackanory, Blue Peter, Black Jacks, Fruit Salads.flying saucers etc.

That was my childhood. I don't want to spend the rest of my life explaining it to someone or explaining my religion or trying to understand the significance of theirs.

So she call me cabron plus marricon
Said she likes to cook rice so she likes me home
I'm like, "Un momento" - mami, slow up your tempo
I got this black chick, she don't know how to act
Always talkin out her neck, makin her fingers snap
She like, "Listen Jigga Man, I don't care if you rap
You better - R-E-S-P-E-C-T me"
I got this French chick that love to french kiss
She thinks she's Bo Derek, wear her hair in a twist
My, cherie amor, Le est belle
Merci, you fine as fuck but you givin me hell
I got this indian squaw the day that I met her
Asked her what tribe she with, red dot or feather
She said all you need to know is I'm not a ho
And to get with me you better be Chief Lots-a-Dough
Now that's Spanish chick, French chick, indian and black
That's fried chicken, curry chicken, damn I'm gettin fat

An appetitite for destruction but I scrape the plate

I love

It's not nationality specific, but I do know several Hispanic women who will not date Hispanic men. I don’t know how common that is, but evidently from what I hear around, it's become more rampant lately and Hispanic women will only date white or black men.

I won't date Bermudian men. In my long life here, I've met (and dated) Bermudian men and they are so backwards in their treatment of women.....most prefer a woman to be submissive and put up with anything that he may do, whether it's drinking all night every night and coming home stinking drunk, or having numerous affairs with visiting Americans. Too many of them have spent their entire lives here, with their only travel being short trips to Atlanta, Philadelphia or New York. (Then they consider themselves well-traveled).

The only ones who are a little better and have SOME respect for their women are the ones who have attended universities overseas.

As a Bermudian woman, I find them embarrassing.

It has never mattered to me, and there is no reason it should matter to anyone. In fact, it is probably healthier for the gene pool for us all to mix.

Nationality doesn't really play any role in dating for me. Other than, of course, the whole "so, where are you from..." type get to know you stuff. But no, I won't exclude any nationality.

I spend a lot of time in Turkey, and most Turkish guys seem to think of foreign girls as play-things. Even though I haven't had a Turkish boyfriend, I can't go past shaking hands with Turkish guys after an episode a few years back - So dating a Turkish man is well out of the question for me.  crazy 
Also, I'd be wary with anyone who was more than just moderately religious, no matter what religion he had... but I don't think I'd rule anyone out because of religion.

But I know at least that people aren't after my money as I'm hardly rich.  Wink

I think you are confusing nationality and heritage

No, that is a general mistake made in colloquial American English that he was pointing out.

Yeah I can see right away when people are not sincere and just looking for financial gain. On the flip side of the coin I cant stand people that wont date another person unless their income is the same or higher than theres as one experience I had when living in the USA. Put me off for good. Also the last thing you want on a date is to hear how many stocks and shares they have.

Growing up in London and the melting part that is South London nationality is just a word that people who has a need for definitions use to explain what they dont understand. I have dated women from all sort of backgrounds and religions. What matters to me is not nationality but personality.

However there might be different challenges when you date women from different cultures. Some people enjoy these challenges and enjoy different cultural backgrounds, some find it difficult. Its abit like some English prefer to go on holiday to Margate and some prefer to travel the world. I prefer to travel the world and I also prefer to date according to personality.

With this said, I have found that I have enjoyed relationships with Asian or Westindian women more than with western women. Asians in the UK actually refers to people from the Indian subcontinent and not Chinese or SE Asians.
Half of the Indians in London seems to be of East African heritage just to make it even more complicated...

Anyway what I have learnt is that alot of Asian women in the UK are looking for a husband that treat them as equals and allows them to further their career and not be the ones running the household and working fulltime at the same time.
This has led to alot of Indian/Sri Lankan women with higher education preferring to marry western men since they perceive that western men, especially Scandinavians are more equal.
I am not sure if this is a London thing or a general trend. I know that in NZ quite a few Chinese (off al nationalities) women look for western men for the same reason. Alot of them will be disappointed, western men arent all equal and English men are probably the least equal of all Northern Europeans but thats another story...
