    Yes, when I was going out with this alien, we would go out in the street and people would call her big eyes and long feelers and all these things and I would have to just knock them out on the spot.

    Someone even called me green fingers lmao. So I blasted him with my phaser lmaoooooooooooo.
    At first I thought you meant 'alien' in the archaic sense lmao

    I'm from a sikh background but this probs applies to most Asians who will look at a Asian girl with a white guy. firstly they probs don't want women to be liberal. its only usually the girls that get judged though. my family is proper western so it don't happen in mine and my mindset is more like a Englishman than a indian. probs cuz I have been raised in a town with proper English lads and don't speak anything but basic Punjabi. after all this is England why would I want to speak other languages on these green and pleasant shores/lands.

    Really I've only dated my own race and now I'm back with my girlfriend from school (we're white).

    Once I was talking to a girl of a different race (I won't say) and some dude (the same race as her) came round the corner and had some angry look on his face, then he walked off and I heard him in the distance saying "I will beat that guy if I see him talking to her again". Not that he ever could!

    I find that quite surprising I must say.

    Are you sure there was no other explanation? Is she much taller than you?

    Nope, it was clear at the time it was because she's of his race (and talking to a white guy).

    I'm from a South-East Asian country and a lot of the girls here seem to marry white guys...yeah people used to stare openly but now it's so common that nobody bothers as much. I suppose other girls stare because they're jealous...it's like a badge of honor or something. But older, already married people couldn't care less.

    Why would they be jealous? I am really not that attractive?

    Yeah. Whenever me and my ex held hands and walked around my school area (which is full of old Asian ladies whose idea of fashion is wearing saris and trainers together), some of the old Asian people used to give us the dirtiest looks.

    And when we kissed once an old guy actually stopped and glared at us for a good minute

    I distinctly remember going out for a meal with my male black flatmate whilst I was still at university and some of the looks you got from black women were horrendous. Ditto with all the ribbing and abuse from young white lads. We weren't even holding hands or kissing or anything overt, why do people still have problems with interracial dating in 2016?
    It's just jealousy , hate and ignorance put into one pot AngryRedhead, don't let the views of others change who you are and who you wish to be with. You can only control your behaviour not the behaviour of others.

    Only the father of the person I was dating once. Didn't like I was mixed heritage [White and South Asian] and would make racist comments at me, I'd retaliate and so would my partner & his family. He was just a old *******. Nobody liked him.

    When people are different, then it builds up a lot of fear, dislike and intolerance. Bit depressing. All you cna do is not be like that yourself and stand up to it if you get the chance.
