What challenges do interracial couples face while dating?

I see more and more interacial couples online and I can’t help but wonder how they manage to work things out in spite of their cultural differences. There’s so much learning involved and I guess they need a better level of understanding to connect as compared to someone who has similar background and beliefs systems as you.

Our parents and grandparents were very specific with who they date and marry. There was very strict rules about which communities are okayed and which communities are a no-go-zone. Even with arranged marriages, they followed some basic rules of engagement to decide who gets with who.

Today’s global world has opened us up to more cultures and the Internet makes it easy to meet people outside your culture. How does this affect the general dating life?
