Interracial dating realtionship advice

You don’t have the right to use slurs or be disrespectful of someone’s culture, even in jest.

The best thing you can do is not give the haters any of your time. If they’re open-minded liberal types or have had an interracial relationship or two themselves, they’re unlikely to make a fuss upon meeting your new partner.

If, in contrast, they’re socially conservative and have no friends of a different race, let alone dated anyone of mixed race, you might want to sit them down and let them know that you’re now a part of a mixed couple.

Singles looking to mingle are increasingly crossing cultures to find their perfect partners on dating sites. You may be from one culture and your potential honey is from another.

(Think swirled ice cream on a cone.) Mixed ethnicity families are on the rise in the UK (source: BBC), and according to The Guardian, nearly 1 in 10 people in England and Wales are in inter-ethnic relationships.

Dating can be awkward enough already when dating people from your culture so you can definitely expect awkward moments when bridging ethnicities.

Take it all in stride and focus on seeing whether your values align, and you feel compatible and positive when you’re together.

Be aware and check yourself of what prejudices against another ethnicity you may be bringing to the table.
