  • My dad might be surprised if I were to like date an Asian or black girl, but he wouldn't disapprove of it. My mom doesn't care as long as the girl is good to me, haha.

    Besides, considering the fact that I am heavily mixed (predominately Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Italian with some Chinese, Spanish, and Hebrew), it would be hypocritical as fuck of them to bitch about me dating girls of different races.

  • My mother wouldn't care at all, but my father would be upset.
    But I would date outside my race regardless of their opinion. It's my life, I do what I want and what makes me happy.

    The only thing that would bother me is if his family didn't like me or treat me bad because of my race.

    • Yea that also worries me

    • I hope it doesn't happen. It would ruin the relationship and I think I couldn't handle it.

    • Thank you for the MHO.

  • I don't think they would be overly fond of it. My dad is a racist, and I don't like it. My mum isn't racist, but she is strongly against large amounts of immigrants entering the UK. Out of my family I think I'm the most accepting person. In my book I don't care who you are, where you're from or what color skin you have I don't judge.

    I don't care if they don't approve. My life, not their's.

  • Done it, and my parents didn't like it one bit. My grandparents would have disowned me though, so that's progress.

    The real key to me is to live your life on your own terms and if people love you, they'll come around.

    • Glad someone got over it

  • My parents are very... ''Traditionally British''.. As is their parents and so on and so on. Which is just a polite way of me saying they don't like foreign people very much. Especially black / Asian people.

    Meanwhile, I have nothing against anyone, And, I actually think quite a lot of black girls look pretty, So, If it came down to it, Then yeah, I probably wouldn't give a shit about my parents opinion on the matter. I was never really close with them anyway.

    But, Its irellevent as ill never be dating anyway so fuck it xD

  • I wouldn't generally date out of my race, not cause of the skin colour, but mostly because of the cultural differences which may arise. My parents wouldn't really encourage it much either for the same reason.

    • Honestly though, the cultural differences make it even more interesting. It's fun to learn about different cultures through people. It expands horizons, and can build a pretty strong relationship if done right. Going salsa dancing for the first time with a cute hispanic girl this week, can't wait!

    • Yaa maybe, but there are few factors that would effect me more, particularly cause I'm a Hindu (with another sub caste... very complicated), this means there are some things which are harder to adjust. For example, I'm vegetarian, and I don't really feel comfortable with going to places where non-vegetarian food is served. Smaller things like this can really act adversely in my relationships. (personally)

  • I never dated outside of my race, I just don't fall for people of other races... And of course appearance isn't everything, but it's part of the package.

    • All people tend to

  • There'd be a raised eyebrow but they probably wouldn't be completely against it, even if they were, fuck what they think! lol

  • My parents don't judge based on race, thankfully. They just want me to be with someone who respects me and has good character.

    If they did care, and I happened to be dating a guy whose race they were hypothetically against, I'm not sure what I'd do... I'd like to think I'd follow my heart.

  • My parents would definitely prefer for me to date a white guy, but they've always told me that as long as he's a good man and respects me and is hardworking, skin color doesn't matter.

    I would feel nervous introducing a guy from a different race to them but I know eventually they would be fine with it.

  • Ack! I didn't see the "not" part of the last answer until it was too late! >_< It's pretty obvious that I would date outside my race though, regardless of whether my parents were okay with it or not. I just tend not to dig guys of my own race that much =\

  • I think my parents may be against certain races. If he's indigenous or some race of Asian they probably don't mind. If he came straight out of a warzone and immigrated here, they would mind (frankly, I would too).
    My preference is Australian, but being mixed is not a big issue. I'm concerned about if I need to be overly-sensitive about some hard religion or domineering family, or he speaks another language that provides a communication barrier and not caring to get involved in Australian culture. He would really have to be a great man for me to get invested in a relationship, let alone a multicultural one.

  • They hand me a full freedom to choose, it doesn't really matter if I really love him and if he's a good guy. But my father did said it'll be better if he came from a same race. Which is out of question because I couldn't stand men in our race, their judgement on girls and the women position in marriage

  • My mom isn't too concerned about this, so long as they're a Christian. My dad, however, is completely against dating outside of your race. What's funny is that he is totally averse to a white girl dating a black guy and vice versa, but I think mixed guys are hot 😍 If he ever found out, he would kill me. Haha.

    • Would you let him stop you from being wtih someone you love?

    • No, because he cheated on my mom with a woman that was a different race. I honestly don't have nothing to worry about though because we don't talk..

    • I can definitely relate to all of that

  • People who deliberately date outside their race on purpose because they know it will piss their parents off are racist and they are not any better than their parents

    • I didn't mean do it to piss off your parents. I meant if you seriously like the person to the point where you dont care what your fam thinks

    • I dated outside my race once but I rarely do that my mom met him and she looked like she saw a ghost but she did not care she dated outside of her race while in high school, I did not date in high school. I never loved anyone that truly to be serious with anyone yet

  • My parents got warmed to the idea of light skinned children as long as I don't ruin the gene height pool which they care more about.. As a teenager if I ever thought about dating someone tanner than me (I'm attracted to way darker) then id just get a new purse new car new whatever to just prevent me but now that I'm older he could be black Asian they don't care...
