Mixed race relationships is quite common these days but what do your parents think about it?
Even if they know that you are dating outside your race later after you tell them, do you feel that they had :eek: expression when you told them for the first time?

Well - it depends on the racial group surely? If the racial group which you are from has a recent history of violence with the racial group which your prospective partner is from then it could pose a few problems.

e.g. (German male & English female; Chinese male & Japanese female; Israeli male & Egyptian female; Indian male and Portuguese female; Iraqi male and Iranian female, etc, etc.).

I really don't see them caring. My mum was essentially trying to set me up with a guy outside my race once, not that I liked him. They really wouldn't care either way I think.

But it wouldn't really be 'in general' since each person in each racial group may have differing attitudes to people of specific other racial groups depending on historical injustices etc., rather than one 'generic' attitude.

Well, I am of the human race.


If I started dating a horse or chimpanzee I might expect my parents to have words with me.

My parents are a bit narked that I am in a relationship with a muslim. Don't think they care about the race but religion is a big thing for them. After 4 1/2 years I think they have either given up caring or at least stopped trying to effect it.

My parents, and the local authorities I imagine, would be quite disapproving if I was to date outside the human race.

I will not date an Orc.

Yes, my parents will feel uneasy about me dating outside my race. To be fair, I only date people in my race (South Asian), but if a fine black gyal came my way, I wouldnt say no to her either. :teehee:

My mom doesn't like me dating white people.

Joking, we're mixed race ourselves. She just wants me to date someone who's good enough for me. Of course, according to mommy, nobody is. But she's my mom, she's bound to say that.

I'm mixed race, so I can't see it being a huge issue.

my parents wouldn't care about someone of a different race they would be uneasy if it was someone really religious though so they might want to know if that was the case. say if they were asian ask if they were strict muslim or from south america strict christian.

I'm asian, and my boyfriend is white. My parents would go CRAZY if they knew, but that's becuase their bigots and racist. My boyfriends parents are a little aprehensive about it (we think it's becuase I'm a muslim) but they don't say anything.
