Problem with interracial dating
With a divorce rate of well over one-third, we all have a lot on our plate when it comes to maintaining a healthy relationship.But still, interracial romantic relationships present a whole new set of challenges.But they may feel alienated and not connected to your significant other. Just make sure that your significant other is supporting you unabashedly when their family is in the wrong. You don’t want to end up like that chick that was calling Dr. Shirking away from your lover in public is disrespectful on so many levels! I was tempted to put “The Black Community” there, but these issues are not unique to White/Black couplings.And what unites us…as human beings…is the longing to find a mate, and be fully accepted by them.Unfortunately the “battle for love” is one that is fought among people of all persuasions.Rather than focus on blogging about this fruitless subject, I began to think about why these are such hotbed topics to begin with.
I should start off with an apology at the negative tone of this post’s title; but I believe that people should know the negatives upfront, get past them (if they want to) and then go on to pursue their dreams.
I love sharing my experiences and opinions with others (hence why I’m a blogger).
They do not care about what other people think about them and they are not deterred if no one (or if only a few) around them are doing what they are doing. Many people could simply care less about what their parents or family think about their life choices. Thankfully, in my experience, most families are at least quietly tolerant of interracial relationships. On one hand, you have absolutely no control or influence over how strangers treat you.
They may not like it, but most parents aren’t disowning their children over it. You are in a relationship with a person…not a family. If you go out with your significant other, be prepared for at least one grossly ignorant comment shot your way at least once per month. However under no circumstances do I shrink away from my status. ” with a raised eyebrow, I don’t hesitate to answer in the affirmative.
Here are ten of them…and this list is far from being exhaustive. When you enter into an interracial relationship, you have the strength, courage, tenacity, and patience to deal with the issues that being in an interracial relationship poses? If you family is accepting, can you deal with the disdain from the public? Do you have it in you to be an “educator” or a “token” of diversity?
In all honesty, some people deal with this splendidly. But you have to know what type of person you are; you have to know what your social limitations are, before you can consider dating interracially. Without a doubt, the impact of family on your relationship has a lot to do with the emotional independence of the couple.
