I'm not sure if anyone reads this community, it doesn't seem very active.  That is too bad because I have been searching for a place like this!  I've been in my intercultural relationship for a little over a year now..I'm from the Midwestern part of the U.S. and he is from Brazil.  We moved in together in January and are really happy together.  But, of course there are all kinds of cultural issues, ranging from small things that seem cute (he eats bananas in his soup?) to huge issues in our relationship (we have different ideas about privacy).  I think inter-cultural relationships are some of the most challenging but also the most rewarding!  Anyways, if anyone is still reading this community and wants to share stories, feel free to add me as a friend!

Hey Rachel -

It's been too long since anyone has posted here. I am from the midwest too - Chicago exactly, and I am seeing a wonderful guy from Romania.

Bananas in soup?

How about sour cream on Chinese fried rice?

Feel free to add me as well, if you like!
