I've run across a few cultural issues in my current relationship. My girlfriend right now is Latin American; born and partialy raised in the Dominican and then she spent her middle and high school years in Mexico City. The cultural issue hasn't really been a huge issue but it has come up a few times. Her expectations of how I treat her and what I do for her is quite a bit more demanding than any Canadian girl I've ever dated. At the same time, she has rewarded me for that with an unbelievable amount of affection. Another issue that has come up is her overly flirty nature. She has told me, as well as my other latin friends, that this is pretty normal. She is extremely touchy and out-going towards almost everyone and I will say that it has made me jealous more than a few times.
