Any of you have or know people with dating partners from different countries?

Well Im from Sweden and my SO is from Wales... There are some few cultural differences but nothing major, or anything that Im not personally aware of/used to already.
As a person that has dated foreigners, I personally think it's rewarding because u have so many things to talk about that it won't get boring
Yes, girl from Mexico with guy from Italy. They make a lovely couple
Oh, honey, no. You are 17. It's nice you have sweet pen-pal, but you each need to be dating near where you live, with real people who can help you learn what you need to know to navigate adult relationships. LDRs can't do that. They just can't.
I'm dating a guy from Germany and I'm a Bulgarian. Neither of us knows the mother language of the other, but we're just soul mates. But it's too early for me to be able to answer your question

If you are asking about LDRs, I have never done that. I have dated someone who lived an hour away, but I could see her every weekend.
If you are asking about dating ladies from other countries, I have dated women from Germany, Ukraine, Poland, Philippines, and Colombia. Most of them had lived in the US long enough that there were not big cultural differences to overcome.
The cultural differences between the US and Canada are relatively small, and you don't have any linguistic problems understanding each other, so I would say that you don't have too much to worry about on that score.
I've had a lot of girlfriends from other cultures and so was my wife. The greater the cultural differences, the more challenging the relationship, but there's nothing deterministic about that- you're still talking about two individuals and circumstances vary (e. g., where you live, how old you are, etc.), and so will the results. Based on my experiences, the challenges posed by cultural difference should never be underestimated but you can usually bridge them with patience and confronting them head-on rather than pretending or assuming they don't exist.
Well I met someone on gag who I been talking to for like 4 months or more and she told me that she loves me. I told her I feel the same but not 100% sure its love or not but I care for her very much. She lives in Canada and I live in Sweden so because of the time difference we can't talk that much...
Yes i was dating a girl from france ( dunno if you mean ldr or just different ethnicity) if long distance relation i wouldn't advice that as it broke me completely (except if you can travel to see her and stuff)
yes i do. i know at least six couples that immediately jump to mind with people from different countries
They worked it out like any other relationship. And they had to decide where to live, like any other relationship.
Yeah, I know people who have done it... but I don't know them in person. I don't even know what happened to their relationship.
I was in a relationship with someone from a different country for 5 years, but it didn't work out in the end.
