For the past four years as an African American I have been dating my wonderful girlfriend who is Chinese. We met in high school and started off as best friends and soon ended up lovers, I still remember the day I took her to the prom in her beautiful white gown.
So far the people where we live are very accepting and respectful of my girlfriend and I except for the occasional blatant stare we get when walking down the street, but we have been strong and faced down every challenge.
However, there is one challenge we haven't faced and that's telling her parents about me. My mother is very accepting and loves my girlfriend. But her parents have made it clear even before dating me they do not want her to date or be with someone outside of her race, especially a black person. So we hid it - so well, in fact, we have it down to a science. But I know there will be the day when we have to tell her parents the truth. It's a very complicated story to tell but with fate's love and grace we plan to tell her parents soon that we are getting married.
Wish me luck!
