the parents of pure ethnic backgrounds are almost gone now here in America. America is a land of multi ethnic families and now multi racial families. I suspect that parents have come to accept this new america therefore the young generation should have little difficulty with parents not accepting their choice of partners. But thats just an older person's view on this question.

yes. and thats been the case with me for close to 7 years now. i dont care about how ignorant and close minded my parents are. i care for her and she cares for me and we get along great. i still love my parents and while they may disapprove, i dont give a shit. i do not need their permission to date someone and in the end, who im attracted to is really out of their hands. i do not let the subject get brought up, and i refuse to have any further conversations with them about it. ive said what ive needed to say and if they cant respect that, so be it. im not losing any sleep over it and im more than happy with how things in my life are.

I'd be upset, of course, but I wouldn't stop seeing him. 'Cause if they tell me to stop seeing somebody I love because of a stupid reason like he isn't white, then well, they can sod off.

Going back several generations, some of my family was racist. My mother never cared what race my spouse was as long as I was happy. Between my siblings and I, we've dated pretty much every race out there. I married a woman who was half Dutch / half Honduran while I am Spanish. 2 of my nephews are of Mexican descent while one of my nieces is half Spanish / half Filipino.

I don't have children myself, but if I did I am sure they would be half and half. Not necessarily because that is what I was looking for, but because I know me and for some reason I've yet to end up with a Spanish girl. The last girl I had a relationship with was of German and Irish descent so who knows where I will go from there. Probably Japanese or Korean. Those women are beautiful!

But regardless, my mother is very open minded about that sort of thing. She'll be happy as long as I am happy. My father? Well, I haven't spoken to him in years so I could care less what he thinks about it all. His parents were kind of racist so it's probably for the better than I have nothing to do with them.

Of course. My mom is kind of on the racist side and my father is more fondd of dating inside the race than out of it but I really don't care. It's my life and my happiness, not theirs. I dated a Caucasian guy before and my mom tried to hide her disgust and agitation but I could see she hated it.

If they would have a negative opinion it would be their culture. Which is explainable since they haven't bothered assimilating socially or culturally. At first they were insistent on me going out with Asians, but it's fucked, no matter how hard I try they never look attractive (no offense), Koreans are nice, but there are bloody none in Australia. Japanese chicks have some sort of thing for not straightening their teeth and south-east asians like me are just frankly not too good looking.
I guess my parents just figured the inevitable, they don't care anymore.

Yes.

Man, screw what my parents think! (Even though I have great respect for my mother)

I'll date whoever I want and associate with whoever I want!

I would hope that my parents wouldn't have a problem regardless of who I loved. However, I do have my concerns every now and then. My mother especially is quite conservative, so I'm not sure how she would react if, say, I started dating a Middle Eastern man. Or a Latino. Especially if they were not perfectly fluent in English.

Though she may have a few scruples if that were indeed the case, I'm sure we could resolve the issue fairly easily. My mother is also a pretty laid back person. She'd come around.

I doubt my father would care about race, religion, or anything of the sort. He would disapprove of any man and despise them all equally.

Even if they did put up a fight about it, I'm a stubborn person. I wouldn't give in so easily, and it's just flat-out wrong to disapprove of someone because of such a trivial matter. Not to say that it wouldn't hurt. A lot. I'm very close with my parents. It would be devastating if something like this ever happened. But I'm not going to sacrifice my happiness and my moral for them to such an extent.

Yes.


You yourself are South-East Asian....Yet you think Asians (or at least South-East/Japanese Asians) never look nice. Good luck on that.
