I'm 21 years old, turning 22 in April; I'm Asian (Taiwanese). Recently.. I was dating this girl who is half German and half Mexican, white and brown mix. We are BOTH virgins. We started dating since 2008, we're in long distance relationship back then; I lived in Nevada and she lived in California. I went to California for college and met her in real life, we had great time back then.
I remember when I was in high school, my parents especially my mom gave me a talk about in the future I should date a Chinese or Taiwanese girl that have similar background, so we can speak the same language, in the same culture and like the same food, Taiwan is part of China. My dad are a little careless, but still don't like it. My mom are super against interracial relationships, she told me that; in the future, if I don't bring home a Taiwanese or Chinese girl; she'll disapprove.
I'm in California right now, and my parents live in Nevada. I never told my parents that I have a girlfriend right now; they think that I'm still single. And yes, they might flip out if I told them I'm in interracial relationship; especially my mom. How can I prepare for this? I don't want to lose her, and don't want to suffer with depression. I need help

I never understood what's the big deal with needing the acceptance of their parents about the person someone likes. Who cares if your parents don't like her? You do, that's the only thing that matters, not race, not your parents opinion, just yours.
I understand the reason why people want their partner to be liked by their parents, but not why they have to determine whether you go out with her/him, or not.
If you like her, and it makes you happy, then go for it. Plus, why do you have to even care what people that don't value your happiness say?0
