This is might be cynical, but if you're a blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl living in Kenya or China, the reality is that your beau is probably thinking it's pretty darn cool that he's snagged a foreigner to parade with him around town.
In many countries, it improves a person's social status to be seen with a foreigner, so don't eliminate the possibility that your exotic looks, accent, and nationality play a role in your relationship to some extent.
If you're open to something long-term, let that be known too so they don't think you wouldn't be willing to put the hard work in for a real relationship if it became serious.
However you see the relationship going, just make sure to open up this conversation as early as possible.
I've even had guys ask me, "Why should I even go out with you?
You're just temporary." Ouch, but point well-taken.
If you put too much emphasis on your cultural, linguistic, or physical , you will create more distance between you two in the end -- or worse: give off the impression that this relationship is more of a novelty than a genuine connection.
Make sure the experiences you share are exciting for both of you and that you like , not just their handiness.
Remember, if he's Greek, he can speak bluntly about the country's recent economic jeopardy.
It doesn't mean you can't engage in debates and learn from one another.
However, you have to be cognizant of the fact that you probably don't know your partner's country as well as they do, and you wouldn't want someone else to be overly opinionated about sensitive topics from your country after a relatively brief visit.
It can be tempting to have a native boyfriend or girlfriend so you have someone to show you around town and teach you the local language, but in the end it's just not nice.
