Even though we are relatively advanced in most societies, interracial dating can still present challenges. Here’s some practical advice.
Meeting Other Singles
The first challenge you may run in to is meeting other singles. You may have to go online and sign up for an adult dating or swinging website to find an open minded community for interracial couples. Finding sites that are dedicated to bringing interracial singles together will be more tolerant, and you will run across fewer problems when trying to meet others.
Dealing With Racism
Once you meet someone you may run in to racism while you are dating. While hopefully this won’t happen, or at least be few and far between, it is something you should be prepared for. Even though most people are going to be tolerant, you will still find people that will look down their noses at interracial couples. The best way to deal with this is to ignore it. If you are experiencing something bad while at an establishment, and the harassment is coming from employees, just get up and walk out. You don’t have to deal with it. If other patrons are giving you grief, you are also free to leave with your date.
Family and Friends
Most people experience discomfort in interracial relationships when it comes to friends and family. Family may not agree with your choice, and friends may not understand. This is where education and love comes in to play. You don’t need to defend your choices at all. But you can choose to try to explain to them that you care about that person regardless of their race. Of course, you are also free to live your life and not worry about what they think as well.
