Congratulations, for becoming a truly global citizen, by taking that bold step to date a person outside your race. Races and their color are not of their own liking or making, but because of the geographical location and climate their ancestors were born. Only broadminded view and openness to approach this issue about race would help solve the problems and agonies, the races are undergoing today. Though much is talked about individual freedom to choose a partner for life, that sarcastic look glanced at the passing interracial couple is a common sight all over the world. This is more prevalent in the cases of a Whiteman dating a black woman or a black woman dating a white man.
The concept of dating is age old and is encouraged by most parents but there seems to be a worry tagged on to the persons dating outside their race or community. Any kind of worry is capable of destabilizing a person’s emotional strength, particularly when people pass adverse comments about interracial dating. You might a have heard about such negative comments passed on people known to you, and you might have developed some kind of worry in your mind that you may also be criticized in case you date a person outside your race. You may worry that not only your peers but your parents and family would also not approve your date. But this kind of worry may prove to be false in your case when your peers and parents approve your date and show their happiness. So, skip the worrying part and go ahead in choosing a date of your own choice and will.
You, as an individual, have every right to choose and date a partner and the opinions and views of others are only secondary. But in case, you come from a very conservative family and you are aware that your parents may not approve your choice of date from another race, you might be caught in a dilemma as to how to solve the problem. There could only be two possible scenarios; one, you are in college and under the protection of your parents for all your needs and the other you are gainfully employed and you can meet all our needs. In the first case, no doubt, you have to convince your parents about the genuine of your dating and get their approval for such dating. This may not happen immediately, but with your perseverance and reasoning capabilities, you could win over them and have the date of your choice.
In case, you are gainfully employed and are capable of taking your own decisions based on merits, no one can stop you from having a choice to date from another race. But, it may be difficult for you to totally estrange yourself from all your family and friends and go ahead with your dating. When you are a person who treats the genuine feeling of others with respect, you can always talk to them, reason out, impress them about the goodness you found in your date and win over them. Initially, they may not come around, but be confident and continue with your efforts which would definitely bring them around.
