You've upped sticks, settled in a new country and now you're ready to embrace the local culture. But that doesn't mean you have to “go native” in your choice of partner. Here, The Local lists ten reasons why dating another expat might make you happier.

On the face of it, dating a native resident in your new country makes good sense. You’ll probably pick up the native language faster, you’ll feel more integrated — and you’ll even have your very own (free) tour guide.

On the other hand, there are downsides:  your in-laws would be in the same country and one of you would always have the upper hand when it comes to language and culture. So, here, for what it’s worth, are ten reasons why you might prefer to date a fellow outsider — and if you’re convinced, why not check out The Local’s very own dating section for expats?
