Parents and interracial dating
You’ve dated a long line of losers—deadbeats, cheaters, manipulators.
Be gentle, quick to forgive, and generous with your conversation. If your parents can’t get onboard with your interracial relationship, consider recruiting a bit of a support team.Are you comfortable dating someone whose parents wish you were a different nationality?Assess your comfort level with interracial objections and determine if the relationship is worth the stress. Consider yourselves the Capulets and Montagues — with a happier beat-the-odds ending.Don’t expect to win over families at your first meeting.Long-standing attitudes and prejudices won’t be cast aside immediately just because you’re a great person.
