How to get a date with someone from a different country – 5 Tips

I grew up all over the world and I know a lot of happy international couples.  Jammie and I are one of them.  Often people wonder where to start.  How do you get a date with someone from a different country.  Here are four steps:

1)  Go to where the people are – If you want to start dating in-person (as opposed to online), go to where the people are.  If you are interested in dating someone of a certain nationality or culture, go to where you’ll find high concentrations of them – certain parts of town, specific restaurants, cultural centers, cultural fairs, churches, temples, etc.  Mix and mingle.  Don’t just go once.  Become a known entity.  You might even want to volunteer for a service project or sign up for a class so that you get a lot of exposure to the right groups of people.  It is easier to get a date when you are a known, appreciated entity than when you are walking up cold to someone in a coffee shop.

2)  Hop online – Prefer online?  That works too.  But be sure to craft an honest, attractive personal profile on the reputable dating site / social media platform that you use.  Avoid anyone that asks for money and set up a Skype chat as soon as possible to make sure the person is real and that they are interesting to talk to.

3) Do some basic cultural recon – Know the basics about your future date’s culture.  You want to avoid obvious mistakes and rack up any brownie points.

4)  Ask for the date! – If you are a guy, you don’t want to delay forever.  Ask for the date and seal the deal.  If you are a woman, find out what might be culturally appropriate.  You can always find clues that signal that you are available.

5)  Follow up – Once you land your date, follow up. Give it a few days but don’t be lame.  A quick “thank you” call won’t hurt.  It might even set you up for date #2.

Sign up for language classes – The language barrier doesn’t need to stop your quest to date attractive singles abroad.  Sign up for some basic language classes.  This will give you an advantage with the hot locals and if you strike out with them there’s always the other students…

Meet them online – One way to ensure a bunch of dates in a new location is to line them up online.  Pick a reputable online dating site.  Find some people that look interesting and suggest grabbing coffee.

Keep it casual – Some people meet the love of their lives while traveling.  Most don’t.  Keep things casual at first.  Enjoy each others’ company.  Don’t over-think things.  Be good to the other person and let things develop organically.  Then keep in touch when you go back home.  You never know what might happen…
