Interracial Dating Couples

5 Reasons Why Interracial Dating is Awesome

WMBW

I didn’t realize that I was in an Interracial Relationship until someone told me. And that someone was my girlfriend. We were dating for a couple of weeks, and our native languages were different. We were born in different countries and we have been exposed to different cultures. But I didn’t really think our races seemed to be worthy of mention until the entire world together with my girlfriend decided to get interested in how our (non-existent) children would look like. And now that I think about it, despite its flaws, interracial dating is pretty awesome.

1. Beautiful Kids

All kids are beautiful, but somehow there is an added expectation that mixed kids are more beautiful. This may be completely untrue but it’s nice to know that if you ever decide to have kids, they will be created from a larger and more diverse genetic pool. It is also scientifically proven that the further you are racially, the lower chances of genetic complications.

2. Learn a New Language

OK maybe not fully learn but at least pick up a few romantic phrases and some swear words from each other. My girlfriend is better at picking up my mother tongue than I am, and sometime when I speak to my grandparents she knows what’s going on. And it’s incredibly cute when she tries to use some of the words on me although her pronunciation sucks. I only know about 2 phrases and 5 words, and 3 of them are inappropriate for public use.

3. Food

If there is a huge perk of dating someone outside your race, it is the food you get to enjoy. You don’t only get to eat amazing native dishes; you also get a personal commentary of each dish’s history and its role in your partner’s culture. And if both your parents are aware of your relationship, it makes it even easier for you guys to go over to each other’s houses and enjoy an array of Amazing food, lovingly cooked by the mothers. And if you are lucky, even the specialties of the grandmothers.

4. Challenge Stereotypes

While stereotypes may be true, they are nasty little blinding forces that hinder you from getting to know people more authentically.  When you love someone different from yourself, you expose yourself to diversity and realize that it’s OK for people to be different. You don’t foolishly say things like “He’s a (insert race), that’s why he’s like that.”

5. Grow Stronger

Every relationship has its problems but somehow an interracial relationship seem to have more because of the possibilities of disapproving family, friends or society. When both parties are mentally and emotionally strong to endure these problems, they find themselves growing closer and stronger as a couple with each passing day. After all, what’s life without a few bumps right? How can we appreciate something if it’s super easily attained or maintained?

Why Interracial Dating is the Best?

The historic amendment of 1967 that made it legal for Americans to marry a person outside their race changed the face of the United States forever. It has been observed that by 1980, around 4 percent of all the marriages in the country were interracial and a majority of these were between black and white individuals. It is to be borne in mind that the country’s history is marked with racism but given the benefits of marrying a person of another race, people didn’t mind trying something out of the box.

Here are a few reasons that have convinced people that Interracial Dating is the best:

  • Your life isn’t Monotonous anymore:

    Getting into Interracial Relationships gives people the opportunity to learn something new that they wouldn’t have learnt otherwise. This is what keeps you away from monotony, which makes life boring and worthless. Over the years, people have understood that dating a person of a different race makes life interesting and helps in maintaining a stronger bonding. This is why a lot of Americans prefer dating Asians or African – Americans.

  • You become more Tolerant:

    Spending time with someone who belongs to a different racial background would give you the opportunity to look at things from a different perspective. This would not only enable you to have a multi – dimensional view of things but also make you more informed. Besides, it would also end any misconceptions and stereotypes. 

  • It makes you Mentally Stronger:

    When you choose to date a person outside your race, you prepare yourself to face a lot of discomfort. Regardless of how common interracial couples have become, there are a lot of people who disapprove of interracial relationships calling it a sign of disgrace and lack of integrity. As a matter of fact, the decision to get into an Interracial Relationship takes a great deal of courage, given the fact that you’d come across someone on a daily basis who would disapprove of your relationship. 

  • Mixed Babies:

    When it comes to Interracial Dating, you certainly cannot ignore the fact that you’re going to have mixed children. We all know how adorable children born to Interracial Couples look and a lot of people fantasize about having kids like that. Look at Mariah Carey! She brings the best of both worlds and this has to be attributed to lineage.

 The aforementioned aspects give a clear understanding as to why interracial relationships score over conventional same race relationships. It is to be borne in mind that keeping an interracial relationship afloat is tougher but if you’re hell bent on turning things in your favor, nothing should seem impossible.
