People often get their curiosity satisfied, and never come to any greater cultural understanding.
That can be said about both of the people involved in the intercultural or interracial relationship. Both can be curious about one another, and after having their curiousity satisfied, they might decide to stay in relationship, form a long-term friendship, marry, etc. The point is, intercultural relationships do not have to be exploitative. Something that started out as a mere curiousity can turn into a life-time adventure.
