I was determined not to rock the boat by vowing not to date anyone whose skin color would not be accepted in our family.
It took him months to finally convince me to date him.
I stress “potentially” since often it is assumed that people of different ethnicities are automatically opposites.
When engaging the topic of interracial dating, we must recognize that no ethnicity is monolithic.
I tried not to fall in love with him, but my heart had a mind of its own.
While it’s more common to see interracial couples walking hand-in-hand at the park or in the mall these days,my then-boyfriend and I stuck out like sore thumbs in the south.
When my husband first wooed me my freshman year in college, I threw away his phone number.
My family was the only Asian-American family in our small, rural town in the south.
When I was finally allowed to date, I knew I was only allowed to date white boys.
Here’s what you should know about dating outside of your race: Interracial dating is nothing like the movies depict it.
Everything always works out so perfectly in the movies.
I’m not sure if it’s because they realized my husband wasn’t going anywhere, or we were their only hopes of having children since my sister was still single.
