Asian man and dating
Being in love is one of the best feelings in the world.
The only comparable feeling is probably when I won tickets to see a live taping of Stephen Colbert, discovered chocolate soy milk (milk allergy), or, like, my future kid gets married.
If you do not respect and appreciate your partners culture (to the extent you are willing to forsake elements of your own culture for their benefit), intercultural and interracial relationships are nearly impossible.
Unfortunately, racism is still alive, all over the world. I wrote a piece about this that went viral, “dear world, saying my husband is ‘attractive for an Asian guy’ isn’t a compliment, it’s actually kind of racist.” No one seems to like the people their friend’s choose to date.It was heartbreaking to watch my friend’s intercultural relationship fall apart (and even harder to not pick a side).
