How To Date Someone Of a Different Race Or Color

There’s one thing to remember: If love or attraction between two people of different race or color is not possible, then there shouldn’t be any half-citizens at all. Here are some things to do when dating someone of a different race.

1. Stop pretending even before you start doing so.

You don’t have to pretend to be someone you’re not. It’s either you’ll end up creating a wrong, condescending impression, or have to stick to your pretentions all your life. While you may want to express your interest in the other person’s language or ways, you have to be sincere and avoid mimicking. You may also want to avoid creating an imprint of pure intentions when you’re only after steamy escapades.

2. Open Up Your Mind

Most of the time, it’s not all about the difference in language or skin tone, other views vary from one culture to another. Hence, you may have to brace yourself when dating someone who comes from another race. There’s no right or wrong, just variety.

3.You’re Dating A Human

Even when you know part of you wants to experiment on what it’s like to be in a relationship with someone of foreign blood or culture, you should remember you’re dating a human being, not a guinea pig. Your potential partner may be someone different, but it doesn’t mean you’ll just play along. Respect begets respect.

While you consider your date as a foreigner or different, remember it’s vice versa. You are also unusual, on your date’s point of view. Ideally, there shouldn’t be any superior or inferior, especially in love and relationships.
