How do you flirt in a foreign language? What if you barely speak the language in question? Is it easier to flirt with a foreigner than with someone from your own culture? What happens when cultural miscommunication crops up? And how do you manage to be witty and charming in a foreign language?

On this week’s episode, we delve into Tiffany’s (many) experiences dating and flirting with foreign men, her bad dates, misadventures, and embarrassments. She shares why she finds foreign accents so irresistible, and how dating a local in a foreign country can make you get to know that country in a whole new way. Katy recounts her one-off date with a local guy in Vietnam, and shares the over-the-top romantic gestures from boyfriends past that made her run for the hills.
