I grew up in the stix of GA and it was very much a old school belief system. You didn't have relationships with someone outside your race. Friendships were ok, nothing more serious than that though. So, as an adult even though I had no problems with folks who dated "outside" their race, its never ever something I would do. For one, in the majority of cases I just wasn't attracted to men who weren't white guys. (side note: moving and living in south florida the white guy population is limited, lol)
I'm not sue exactly how it happened, but all of a sudden after 3 years of working togeather, with not much dialoge happening between us in all of that time, me and my cuban dh just clicked. Like someone turned on a light switch. Now you want to talk about opposites, our life styles were as opposite as it gets. I like bars he likes clubs. I'm an animal lover, he is so not. I don't really speak any spanish, but his english is really good. But we both have a love of the outdoors and wanted to have a family...eventually. So, after a month of us taking turns traveling from Coconut Creek to Hialeah ( a 45 minute drive) everynight we decided to move in togeather.
That was a year and a half ago. Now, we have our family and can't wait for the time when we can start really doing things outdoors with our beautiful boys.
Even though life is just awesome and our relationship is strong there is and probably always will be a gap between us. Different worlds, and even though he speaks wonderful english, its not much above a basic level: so there are communication problems at times and I think we both get frusturated once in a while that we can't express ourselves fully. I am working on my spanish but it'll never be much above a basic level.
So, my question to you is.... are you in a interratial or diffent culture relationship? and if so, pros? cons?, funny stories? tell us about it. :-)
