How far into dating would you bring up a race discussion and how your family would react when dating someone?
Interracial relationships: How far into dating did you bring up race and family reactions?
What Guys Said 5
I wouldn't bring up the race discussion. My family is fine with me dating other races. Besides, they know I'm into Latinas and my sister has dated Hispanic guys. No issues here.0
That's the internet for you. Just ignore them and carry on.0
I guess it depends on you family. I would never bring it up because it wouldn't be an issue for me.0
Never since my mother would literally kill me. My mother is very racist. I wouldn't date inter-racially anyway.0

Anon user down there is smoking crack. Some people still can't accept interracial relationships, unfortunately. I know my family wouldn't. all the guys I've dated in the past were kept a secret and were told right from the start that there would be little to no chance of it going anywhere. but they still wanted to go out, so I complied.1
If race isn't an issue, then you don't bring it up
If race will be an issue, to be honest, I have no sympathy for people who bring themselves or their partners into unwelcoming situations. If you know your family won't approve, why dare bring them home? Especially when it's an early relationship and it will come down to him/her vs your family.
Losing family isn't worth a relationship that may not go anywhere...
But again, if race isn't an issue, I wouldn't bring it up.0
