My parents, or more like mom, didn't react the best to my telling them that my boyfriend is Chinese. Still doesn't.. Asks me if I 'really' like him, someone with such different cultural traditions and no religion of his own. Despite my enjoying myself very much when he invites me to join him to various family functions, she insists I'm going to feel like a foreigner if I continue frequenting these various functions. Not true at all, I couldn't be made to feel any more welcome.
She treat him politely, and I know I can't change her mind. If she refuses to let go ot her old-age traditions of marrying inter-culturally and religiously, so be it. I simply will not be able to abide by that.
Asians have to be the only race in America that has positive stereotypes. Asian immigrants are seen as the hardest working, most driven, most decisive kinds of people. The kind of people who are actually living the promise of the American dream by coming to a new country, working their butts off (and not complaining about), and raising their children to become doctors.
And they love their rights, too. Remember the LA riots? The Koreans banded together and armed themselves to the teeth to defend their stores from looters because the police were too scared to do it. And then the police kept demanding that they disarm themselves! Luckily they didn't.
But this is all talking about 1st and 2nd generation immigrants. Once they've fully assimilated into mainstream American culture, all races are pretty much the same.
I don't know, all the relatives gossiped hella lot when my cousin brought home a black boyfriend, I guess it'd be like that with an Asian boyfriend too. I don't think they'd care too much, but they'd be shocked and talk about it a lot 😑
Would depend on his religion and his country and his appearance.
My parents expect me to bring home a white guy lol but they would also still judge him for his appearance. Is he covered in tattoos or piercings? How old is he? Etc. My parents are still conservative Asians
My mom actually kind of expects it from me since Asian guys one at the top of what I find eye catching. I wouldn't date someone just because they're Asian, I just want someone who's personality can turn me on. A person could be ass ugly, but if they have a kick ass personality I'd fall for them. It wouldn't be the first time it happened. :T
Well your profile says you are South African so it is a totally different thing from America, but most people here are probably American. What kind of woman are you hoping to date, a black, an Afrikaner, a colored?
