Parents that forbid interracial dating
Unfortunately, our website is currently unavailable in most European countries.We are engaged on the issue and committed to looking at options that support our full range of digital offerings to the EU market.Now, my second week in, I met the most wonderful man. I told them it shouldn't matter what color his skin is if I love him, but their small town values seem to say otherwise.How can I cope with the odd looks and my parents without losing my man?If your parents and others don't budge in their views, they're missing out on sharing in your life and the richness of your relationship.At that point you and your partner will have to decide whether or not you can ignore the negative reactions and focus instead on finding friends and family who will support your relationship.

Alice, My question is about interracial relationships.

Having open and honest conversations with your loved ones about your feelings may open the door to a better relationship moving forward.
You mentioned that the man you've been dating treats you well. Part of any healthy relationship is communicating about the things you find challenging in your lives — both together and apart.
