It happens almost every day. A girl meets a man from a foreign land and, after a courtship spanning a few weeks, months, or a year or two, the two are wed. Yes, it is quite common, probably due to the fact that the idea of marrying someone not of the same citizenship or ethnicity is somewhat romantic. That said if you have set your sights on finding your perfect match outside your home land then here are some tips to get you on the right track and meet your “Mr. Right”.
- Take a trip. This is one way to meet the man or woman of your dreams. Take trips to foreign destinations and look for him or her. It is a leap of faith however, if you do take a trip and are open to new experiences and meeting new people, then it is highly likely that you meet someone that you will be inclined to romantically bond with. The only problem with this particular option is that it can be quite expensive, especially if you are going to Europe or the US coming from a third world Asian country. If you can’t afford it, then do the next best thing, read the next tip.
- Begin an online romantic rendezvous. This is pretty common nowadays. A man meets a woman online through a chat room or online dating website, they get to know each other through daily meet ups online, and, finally, the man takes a trip to meet the woman in person. A few days or weeks of courtship and the wedding details are finalized. To tell you the truth, something like this is already happening as you read this. So, if you are really looking for that foreigner that could make your life a living heaven, then you may want to consider using the Internet to meet your match. There are hundreds of online dating and matching sites you can join. Some are free while others require a fee. Another option would be to log on to various chat rooms that include foreign chatters. Of course, do not discount the power of social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter as these have all become wonderful avenues for long distance romance.
- Know your foreigner. Whether you met your lover the traditional way or the online way, you will definitely want to get to know him before you decide to tie the knot. Like any courtship, it is important to get a feel for this person. Know what his likes and dislikes are. Make sure to study up on his culture as he studies up on yours. There may be clashes in cultures that will arise later on so, make sure to clear that up early on or you may regret it later on.
- Work on immigration. This is actually the tricky part since a lot of paperwork and legwork will be required whether you move to your partner’s homeland after the marriage or vice versa. So, make sure to read up on the immigration laws of the country you will move to and accomplish the necessary paperwork and other requirements while you make plans for the wedding.
Patience is key when fostering a romantic relationship with a foreigner.
It should not be rushed and it is critical that you hold off on the
passion as there are many things that will need to be worked out before
you can finalize things.
