With the wrap up of the most recent season of The Bachelorette, ABC has announced its newest star in search of a relationship and love: Juan Pablo Galavis! You may recognize Galavis as one of Desiree Hartsock’s suitors on The Bachelorette season 9. The 32-year-old single dad and former Venezuelan soccer player is hoping to find the perfect person for him and his daughter. According to People.com, this reality TV star and new Bachelor said he is looking for “a mom for [my daughter] Camila and someone I can spend many years [with] together.”

The new star of The Bachelor has some Venezuelan roots that make most girls swoon. What are some things to consider when you’re dating someone from a different culture?

Cupid’s Advice:

Meeting people from other cultures can be shocking, but can you imagine dating someone with a different background? Cupid has some dating advice about what to consider when you’re falling for someone from a different culture:

1. Embrace your differences: You were likely raised differently, so don’t be too shocked when the two of you do things a bit differently. Don’t pressure your partner into doing things your way, as that may feel unnatural to them.

2. Learn something new: Learning about another culture can be quite exciting, so soak up every moment of it! Don’t stress too much about your differences, as the two of you can find common ground if you work together.

3. Take up cooking: Cooking is a great way to dive into your significant other’s culture! Just make sure to run the ingredients by each other. For instance, snails and frog legs are a delicacy in France, but here in the States, they’re considered adventurous meals.
