Step 2 - When you're dating someone who's not from your background expect some unexpected hurdles.
If you're aware and okay with them then you and your partner are more likely to stick together. If we don't communicate and then blame our partner for all the problems of interracial dating, we're in trouble.
Remember: The worst thing you can do is stay quiet and start judging your partner. When his parents first started dating they faced some unexpected and painful challenges!Sure you don't expect him to take out the trash everyday, or expect her to wear a skirt every time you ask her to.On the other hand there are some things that they do or expect from you that would make your eyes pop out of your skull! As soon as your partner does something 'different' tell him/her that you're not used to that.To illustrate the interracial problem from anothe rangle I will discuss one of my friends who is a hybrid. His parents had to deal with their own parents (not to mention "friends") not being open to interracial dating.When they walked in the street his parents would get weird looks from crowds.
