How to talk with teens about interracial dating
I tried a few times to slip the topic of interracial dating into conversations with my parents, telling stories of friends who were happily dating or getting married.The response was always the same: “Good for them, but you’re going to bring home someone that looks like us.” My father even hinted that he would cut off my college funds if I went “that way.” I felt trapped.All the fears my parents have for our relationship have yet to materialize, even here in this foreign land.Our love for each other has grown so much that I’ve come to realize that it’s time to tell my parents.Be free when talking about races, like a normal couple would do. It’s best if you’d be honest and try to learn about the culture of your partner.Every race is often associated with some stereotypes.When it comes to interracial relationships, you and your partner’s opinion matters the most.
Knowing that there are other couples like us is quite motivating.
However, as the relationship grows, you will find yourself slowly being attracted to your partner’s culture without noticing it.
When you talk about interracial relationships, most people often think that it’s about black men dating white women or vice versa. In the “interracial world”, you can date a partner from any race of the globe. After all, it doesn’t where you came from, as long as you share the same aspect in life and know how to support each other, you’ll get through struggles and happiness.
You and your partner will take pride in knowing that you are not alone.
Therefore, make a habit of knowing others who have the same situation as you. Plus, you will be able to get advice from guys who have a relationship similar to yours.
