Interracial Romance

You met the guy of your dreams. He is cute, funny, sweet, the perfect guy for you. The only problem, you know your parents wouldn't approve because he is not the same ethnicity as you. You grew up being told that certain guys from certain backgrounds want a lot of sex and abuse their girlfriends.

Stop right there. Just because nationalities have a reputation as being hot headed does not mean that they are. Saying that some Spanish guys abuse their girlfriends is like saying all blondes are dumb or if someone lives in California they are stuck up.

Just because one person is one way does not mean every single person who has the same nationality is like that. It is wrong to not give someone a chance just because of what you heard growing up.

If you are a parent do not put those ideas into your child's head. Even if you saw an incident growing up don't let that one bad experience go for everyone. Let your child date who they want and if you are to disapprove do it for a good reason not a stereotype.

If you like a guy from a different race and he treats you right go for it. If the person you like treats you right and you are in love don't give up this opportunity. Love is a great feeling and it's even better when the person you like likes you back. This is your life don't let what you have been told growing up get in the way.

If you give up this amazing opportunity you will regret it. Someone else will have the person and you will be heartbroken. This is your time to date who you want and live your life. Use your best judgment and experience the wonderful feeling of love.

The first sign of maturity is learning to think for yourself.

When I was single I dated whomever there was a mutual attraction. In my eyes a Porsche Carrera GT in any color is still a Porsche Carrera GT.

It's not the color of one's skin that dictates whether or not you are suitable for one another. Having said that each of is entitled to have our own preferences. However it's important to keep in mind the less options (you) allow yourself the more difficult it will be to find a mate. If I say my mate has to be of my same race I could be eliminating 6 billion people sight unseen!

That sounds crazy to me!

The goal is to find someone who shares your same values, wants the same things for the relationship/marriage as you do, (naturally agree) on how to obtain those things, and last but not least have a (mutual) depth of love and desire for one another. Their skin color is unimportant.
