Dating out of your race
A person this insecure is unlikely to make a good partner.As the old saying goes, you can’t love someone until you love yourself.If you disagree with your parents’ views on race, challenge them directly by broaching discussions about the issue with them.And if you and your parents have other problems, don’t try to hurt them by dating interracially.At the same time, it’s irresponsible to seek out partners you know your parents would disapprove of just to rebel against them.The mates you seek out certainly won’t appreciate being used as fodder in the war with your parents.That’s because deadbeats, cheaters and manipulators only come in one color, right? The reality is that you’ll have to do much more than land a love interest with a different skin tone from yours to end destructive dating patterns.The answer to your romance problems isn’t crossing the color line but examining why you’re drawn to inappropriate partners.
Many parents tell children outright which racial groups they approve of them dating and which racial groups they forbid them to date. Now married to a Korean-American man, Farr had been told growing up that her boyfriends could only be German, Irish, French or Jewish."No blacks and no Puerto Ricans, though, or you are out of my house," Farr recalled her mother saying.
In an ideal world, people wouldn’t enter romantic relationships for what they stand to gain from their partners.
This isn’t to say that every successful minority who dates or marries interracially does so with ulterior motives.
Interracial dating isn't without its problems, but today interracial relationships enjoy more support in the United States than they have at any point in history.
While two decades ago, fewer than half of Americans approved of interracial marriage, now 65 percent of all Americans support such relationships, and 85 percent of young people do.
