Would your parents care if you date outside of your race?

I have always dated outside of my race and my parents never cared. I do get looks and interruptions.

  • no, of course not. she's even made a point to address it. it's not an issue.
    i haven't talked to my dad about it though because the last time he asked me if i had a boyfriend it was pretty awkward.

    i bet the guy who's downvoting every positive reply will downvote this..

    • That’s good to hear. I hope the down voting won’t hurt this question too much lol

  • Honestly they would mind a little bit depending on the race but idc what others think. I will date any guy from any race if we get along. why would I limit myself because of what my parents think? at the end of the day I'm living my life for me.

  • My mother "disowned" me for dating a black girl. She was so strange about it, saying "black people don't move like us", sound like a white supremacist but one who married a Japanese guy and gave birth to me, a biracial kid. I was always attracted to pretty women of any ethnicity (maybe because I'm biracial, not sure, and don't identify with any one ethnicity). I ended up not talking to her for many years and actually lost touch with her completely.

    • My father was always totally cool with it.

    • As for getting some looks, I get that no matter what ethnicity/race of person I date: Japanese, white, black, Hispanic, Brazilian, Korean, doesn't matter. I always get treated like an interracial couple since I'm mixed and don't quite look like any particular ethnicity. Maybe if I dated a mixed person like me, I might not get that, but never met one with a mutual interest.

    • That’s sad that some people have such strong feels towards others.

  • Mine don't. My parents are mexican but they're bias against dark skin people (fairly common in mexican culture), so they were happy when they found out I was dating a white girl.

  • My parents don't care if I date a guy that's not Chinese but they might have a problem with me dating a black guy or middle eastern guy. They have no issues with me dating a white guy though.

    • @Saray So you're also from the Balkans, that's nice.
      I agree with you, everyone deserves respect as long as they give it too.

    • @happyhippo its impossible to have a relationship without respect , or love... And ye , born n raised here.

  • Kinda. In the end they would respect my decision and keep quiet, I'd think. But I doubt it would ever happen, I'm simply not attracted to very many races other than my own (I'm caucasian and native american). If we get along really well I'd consider dating outside my norm.

  • My dad encourages it. Like he prefers to see a culture mixing because it is in general better and much more interesting. He doesn't care what race either, may it be Asian, black, Hispanic, White, Jewish or whatever. My mom is indifferent but prefers not because she is afraid I'll face a culture problem which I think is nonsense. Communication is a thing.
    The only thing they both care about is whether he is decent and religion.

  • Lol well... my oldest sibling married someone outside of his race. My dad doesn’t care, my mum pretends she doesn’t but she is one of the biggest racists I’ve ever met. She has mellowed since their relationship but she’s hardly welcoming.

    Considering my mum isn’t part of my life I only concern myself with my dad. And he just wants me treated nicely.

  • They would. They've told me very clearly that they wouldn't be happy if I date anyone who's black and if I dated anyone Asian (specifically in this case those from predominantly Muslim countries), I don't need to bother coming home at all. It's unfortunate but not something I would want to take into consideration.

  • I doubt race itself, but more different culture more likely would be an issue for them.
    Also considering the fact that my country isn't racially diverse at all, so someone with different race in their eyes would be some foreigner who's going to take me away, so nope, they probably wouldn't be happy.

  • Yes. They're kinda racist. Not that they wouldn't be friends with anyone from another race, they are very friendly to everyone. However, my parents will regularly make jokes in front of them that deal in stereotypes. They just don't know how to interact with other races. They believe that you should marry any one you want, however they really don't want me to marry outside of my race. Its bad, i know.

  • No. My first serious girlfriend, was Black and I am White, it just happened by pure chance, but both families didn’t care, in fact, I think because we were both so young, and hadn’t been exposed to “Race Issues” as adults, there was a charm and innocence about it that I think people loved... colorblind lovebirds

    • You do know we are all mixed raced right? Hence why in every proof you have provided me said “claims to be...” you still haven’t told me why the control from the research isn’t off because it’s off.
      How is it illogical when that man doesn’t even have a doctorate. The entire medical and science field disproves ever made up theory he has. In every video his numbers are off and he provides numerous quotes from doctors that he question by using unrelated facts. His whole race comparison was ridiculous and SO far off it’s not even funny.

    • Look, you seem like a intelligent man. All I’m saying is if you don’t think you should date outside of your race because of your parents than that’s wrong because you should live your own life. But if you don’t want to date outside of your own race for personal issues than that’s cool, I’ll respect that. Don’t be offended because I don’t share your social viewpoint

  • My parents aren’t racist but they do sometimes say pretty racist things so I do think they would be bothered a little

    • You literally asked “would your parents care if you date outside of your race?” So you did

    • I asked my parents if they were ok with me dating outside of my race and they’re cool with it but they make racial jokes too

  • Meh. My dad maybe wouldn't like it as much as he would if I dated a white girl. But there's little difference in his attitude about that.

    But my mom would just be happy I was actually dating a girl at all. So there's that..
