Here they are: Marie Telling: I'm an associate editor for Buzz Feed France, based in New York.I'm French and I grew up in Bordeaux, in the southwest of the country. Julia: I feel like, in NYC specifically, you ALWAYS have to have the talk. K., I think that it's fine to date several people at once, provided it's still at the early stages and you're not taking the piss.Being in love can make people do the strangest things.It just goes to show that animals aren’t the only ones capable of exhibiting bizarre courting behavior—not by a long shot.I'm particularly interested in other developed nations where people have the freedom to marry for love, not so much Islamic countries or countries with arranged marriages. I've heard that there's no 'formal dating culture' in New Zealand and to an extent Australia but I still don't get how it differs that much from what I've seen on TV. ' We still go on dates to restaurants or whatever, but it's pretty casual, but it seems these days it's pretty casual in the US too, nothing like more traditional culture. I will however talk about my latina women South might be a different continent, but it is still America.I think for the most part, most of the morals and views on dating are pretty similar.
With Latin America completely generalized, what you get is something very similar to USA, but probably a little bit more vocal in certain things, and maybe more 'lovey dovey'.After they establish some lovely correspondence with you, fall in love and maybe even send a couple of cheap presents, they will either: a) be almost on their way to meet you, but something will happen to them: they will get robbed, beaten, get into the hospital, or other misfortune will happen and of course you will be their only contact to ask for financial help, or: b) tell you that their employer pays them with Money Orders or checks, and they can't cash them in Nigeria.They will send you the Money Orders or checks and ask you to deposit them into your bank account and then wire the money to them via Western Union.Different countries approach love and relationships differently, which often makes for bizarre culture shock but also fascinating conversations.So, we decided to gather eight women who work at Buzz Feed and who live in and come from different countries to discuss cultural differences when it comes to love and relationships.
