After coming to university, I have realised that I would prefer to date within my race. For various reasons, the culture difference can be very suffocating at times. Yet I always seem to tend to attract men from outside my race :rolleyes:

I'm not sure (my mum would not want me to date and even if i dated she'd prefer me dating a south-asian for language and cultural reason), but I told her that I'll date whoever i want to which she didn't really respond, so I'm going to take it as that she doesn't mind. :dontknow:

How can they go mad? You're mixed, which means they are not both of the same ethnicity.
Haha, so true! The irony! Ah well I guess ignorant people like their double standards :rolleyes:

Thats why I said , weird looking baby? It was for him to clarify. So next time read the quote properly before you call me racist.
i was trying to make a joke.. im obviously not that funny.
and i am a GIRL thank you xox

and btw it would be weird looking since im not very pretty and i dont think an asian version of me would be any prettier

I hate ignorance and would not date who my parents told me I should. I would date someone who treated me right and who I liked regardless of their skin colour or religion.

People, you need to be strong and tell your family this is who you are. (yes it might not be easy, or easier said then done..but really it can be done). Ok they may not like it. but tough. They will eventually come around. If they dont. Life will be better without them.
To be fair. It depends what the ethnicity of the parents are. If they aren't white then it's not really a contradiction.
