Okay so there's this international student in my university that seems like a very nice, well-educated guy. He said he likes me, and I like him too. So far we've been kissing and everything. I'm not looking for a fling, I'm only interested in a serious relationship. The problem: He's not American, he's not from here. He might go back to his country after he graduates (I assume). His family doesn't live here. I want things to work out but I don't see a future if we were to be together just because of his nationality he might not stay here permanently I don't know. Anybody dated an international student? How does things suppose to work? If not will you date one? Your thoughts? Thanks.

Yes, in an instant. I've spent significant time outside the US and it's surprising how much you can have in common when you talk about experiences abroad, yours if you've had some, or theirs. As for how things work out in the future -- you're in college, you're still young, and it's okay if it doesn't work out perfectly. It doesn't have to. It won't be a fling, but it may not be what you're looking for in the end either, and if it's not, that's okay... if you don't accept some risk and difficulty, the kind of cultural differences you need to bridge in your relationship won't seem worth it, and that's a shame, because it's entirely worth it.0
