Dating in different countries
Having a relationship with someone is important in all cultures, however the process of dating is different according to countries.
Thus, culture affects the way people date, suggesting various kinds of dates from heavily supervised meetings to evenings spent at the movies.
Traditional forms of communication rely heavily on nonverbal language, such as body language, facial expressions and tone of voice.
The most common dating places preferred by couples are dinner parties, barbecues, or the beach. In Finland for example, groups as large as thirty teens take part in an event together, such as going to the movies.For the most part, relationships that cross borders are not much different from long-distance relationships within the same country.Research has found that people's attitudes about long-distance relationships and their contentment with their own situation play an important role in determining the success of a long-distance relationship. One of the most important aspects of a long-distance relationship is communication.Many Spanish teens join groups or clubs that bring people together connected by common interests, be it camping or cycling.The dating part however is done one-to-one, both sides asking each other out and splitting the expenses associated with a particular evening.
