    Too much of a culture clash in the long term...if you're only looking for a quick shag, then it's ideal!
    the parents wouldn't approve tho...

    In-laws very rarely approve. Let alone if you are from a different world.

    In a relationship with an indian girl, no problems at all, her parents seem accepting of me (far more than the white parents of one of my previous gf's). Honestly people overplay culture clash so much especially with people of a different ethnic origin born in the same country.

    the only major difference is the closeness of our families.
    his family is not close and they live far apart, i.e his uncles don't live in our town and he doesn't like his dad, whereas I am very close to my family and we all live within a mile of each other.

    Well I am mixed race, being half black and half white. My boyfriend of 4 years! Is Indian, Sikh. My parents love him and are not fussed in anyway what god dam colour he is. His parents....don't yet know about us. But I respect why this is and am totally understanding as it is his decision not to tell. At the end of the day, we have so much in common and we have too much fun. It doesnt matter what colour.religeon.culture blah blah u are, if you get along then fine! His parents or anyone else for that matter are not going to split us up. This is England, a free country, a mixed national country and anyone can be with anyone they choose if they are both happy.

    I love my boyfriend, I am Christian and he is Sikh. I am half caste and he is Indian. So ******* what

    I'm black and my girlfriend is Indian. Obviously between us there is no culture clash whatsoever as we are both born and bred in London and have the same culture due to that so there is no real culture clash as if we were fresh from our respective nations lol. The only thin is that her parents don't know yet but I think in time it won't matter as much as they are her parents are not 'stereotypically indian' if I can say that when it comes to dating and things like that and they'll have to come round to it. Her family doesn't get along with most of their other relatives so the whole 'what will they think' doesn''t really apply.

    I'm blaaack (but not Styles P). My gf is Turk-Cypriot and her dad's side of the fam is mega racist. It would end in some sort of bloodshed if he was to find out that she's going out with not only a non-muslim, but a non-caucasian, non-muslim.

    Pffft..

    I kinda understand what you mean but in this day and age, especially living in a big city or town in the UK interracial relationships are so much more likely to happen so I guess in time they are gonna just have to deal with it :o:
