Discover the challenges and rewards of dating ethnic men.


Explore the hidden agendas that drive ethnic men’s

relationships and family dynamics.


Find the key to creating intercultural harmony and happiness.


Multicultural relationships are increasingly common, despite the many challenges involved. If you’re a woman considering a relationship with an ethnic man, this invaluable course will open your eyes to the impact of religion, family obligations and peer pressure on your partner’s ability to fully commit to you.


With practical advice and case studies of real-life multicultural couples, Dating the Ethnic Man shows you how to address and embrace the often-divisive cultural differences between you and your man, while enriching your experience of life and of each other. The next-best thing to couples therapy, this new course (based on the highly acclaimed book) takes you on a journey of discovery and understanding that will enable you to gain control of your romantic life. It encourages you to honestly explore your motives as well as those of your partner, promoting deeper awareness and exposing the traditional cultural pressures that can jeopardize your potentially nurturing and passionate union. Questions for contemplation and an in-depth compatibility test provide additional insights into the ethnic man’s values, sexual issues and emotional conflicts.
