Yes this is a part two kindof Speaker’s Corner video! We got so many interesting responses that we felt two videos were necessary. The first video had a lot more negative view towards cross cultural dating in it but notice that the second view has much more positive views! Yaaa! We totally planned it that way, hahahaha! There were a couple of very interesting comments by Korea speakers, such as the idea that you might fight less because of the language barrier. Like you literally cannot fight because you don’t have the words to do it! It’s kind of brilliant reasoning. But I also find the idea of small cultural differences interesting such as the difference between how someone cleans their home. You don’t think about that as being important but once you’re in a relationship with someone (as a roommate or otherwise) these type of smalls details become huge actions.
So I’m curious if you can think of any small details that have affected your relationship with someone. I know an example I can give with me and Simon. Drying the dishes right away or leaving them to dry on the drying rack are things you have to learn to deal with even thought they seem small and insignificant.
Also, I’d also like to mention that we had some problems with the video booth which caused several videos to be totally corrupted and un-viewable. So sad! If you left an awesome response and it didn’t show up, you know why. If you make your way back into the booth again please mention at the beginning that your video didn’t make it in so that we know you were one of the unlucky ones!
