Fred is Asian, but he's been wondering what would happen if he ends up with a white girl. So I turn to you guys who sort of have a clue on what's going on. As to any white girl who's ever dated an Asian before, I'd imagine it could be quite awkward.

Dear Fred,

Watch The Big Sick

(It is not anime, but it is both excellent and relevant)

I've always had interest in dating someone different, weather same ethnicity or another, i wanted them to bring in a different prospective on certain topics. tho, i'd have to accept that we would always agree on everything, i wanted someone who was at least reasonable with finances. I'd imagine any relationship being awkward at first.

I, as well as most people probably understand what you meant by ethnicity, but for future reference:

- White, Black, Hispanic, and Asian are all examples of race, because race is a very broad and unifying term based on the color of your skin and sometimes other physical traits.

- Italian, German, French, English, Irish, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Egyptian, South African, and Cuban are all examples of ethinicity, because ethinicity is a very specific term based on things like a one's national origin, culture, and geographic region.

Tentatively, you can only be one race, or half of two races, while on the other hand you can have multiple ethnicities.


Other than little bit of info, go for it dude, our lives are too short to worry what others think.

I didn't know that , thanks for the information


on the other hand I always thought knowing, befriending ,dating or even marrying from another race ,ethnicity or nationality is really fascinating since i came from mixed ethnicity (Egyptian Italian) I always thought i'd do the same and got married to different race or ethnicity but I loved someone just like me half Egyptian half Italian and we got married so i didn't follow the plan , don't put a plan just let your heart choose and if your heart decides to go for different ethnicity follow it wherever it leads you to

Ethnicity doesn't matter. If you like them, you like them. And as Enixspirit said, every relationship will possibly be awkward at first.

Why should ethnicity matter when choosing a partner? Love comes in all different colors, shapes, and sizes.

fred you always entertain me, just thought I'd toss that out there.

as for dating, if it's not against the rules/customs of your country then date whomever you find interest in, and they show similar interests, if not it's going from awkward to downright creepy right quick.

thought that was a dream of some girls to date Asian, this whole cartoon obsession... but I'm a minority so basically I'd be dating just about anyone who's different. don't have a problem with it, so, you shouldn't be either or whomever else for that matter.

Like others have said, ethnicity shouldn't matter.

Well no. Ethnicity does matter of course. Cultural barriers like language and religion can be very problematic in relationships by default, not to mention the factors that must be met before the whole loving thing goes straight. In general, one would consider relationship partners from their kind first befofe going further and that is simply the norm in many countries(Having encountered at least 3 countries, you can take it from me that the "I want a girl from my parts" ideology isn't a myth). So yeah ethnicity changes so much for many people.

That being said, it is by no means an immovable obstacle. I know this sounds corny but love is a hurricane. If one is passionate enough then a lot of this won't even be seen as piroties

Don't trip over color--date whom you want. My pastor's daughter just got married to an asian guy. As far as I know, she loves him to bits.

As an Asian, I know that if you proceed to date with a Caucasian female, they will cruelly laugh and mock the size of your Asian sized genitals, but then reveal their true nature as treacherous Lamias. They will then cast a spell on you, shriveling your manhood to a husk, before it falls off and you become a female, to which they then set you on fire, before bringing out a boombox playing Alicia Keyes' This Girl is On Fire, while live streaming your fiery death on Facebook live.

(Knows from experience.)
