Unfortunately, racism is still alive, all over the world. You should be dating a white guy. The closer the friend, the more you tend to dislike their choice of a partner. Cultures are inherently different. Some people have difficulties separating an individual from their culture. I am not marrying into Japanese culture. I am marrying Ryosuke.
While it would be foolish to ignore the impact Japanese culture will have on my relationship, our foreign cultures are not the determining factor on whether we can have a successful marriage. The lists ranged from he shares your culture what culture exactly? Why are we having this conversation?
If you see two white people holding hands, no one bats an eye. If you see two Asian people shopping for baby clothes, no one thinks twice. Seriously guys, if you see a white woman and an Asian man at a restaurant, leave them alone.
I think it is amazing that my best friend is from a different culture ; every day spent with him is a learning experience. We have our days some good, some bad ; if I could go back in time two years to the day he asked me to be his girlfriend, there is not a single thing I would change. If you like this and want to read more, I please buy the autobiographical comic book I wrote, on Amazon! About Grace Buchele Mineta I got into the writing business by accident. Now I live in the countryside near Tokyo with my husband, Ryosuke, where I draw comics, blog, and make videos about our daily life.
Just discovered your YouTube channel, and found it so intriguing that I subscribed! We love seeing how other interracial couples live in other countries. My wife and I both enjoy watching your videos and look forward to more of your adventures! Why would she put up a random photo of some women on here? Surely she should be in the photo….? To all the commenters out there: Keep pushing to make this world a better place. I feel like this is less about race, and more about culture. This is a great post, Gracie.
Thank you so much for being an non-conforming caucasian female who go for what she wants. Here is an article that we have written for young Malaysian students who are interested in dating white females but are socially conditioned that the white chicks are out of their league: But are fine with white male and Asian female relationships I would never know. Most of the time yeah and my brother does say girls say he looks good for an Asian aswell which sometimes makes me laugh because it sounds so bittersweet.
People like who they like. I was in shock, and I wish I had had a stronger appalled reaction, because it was quite obviously about his race. I have recently been introduced to your YouTube videos. I am very impressed, as you seem to share my unique sense if humor. Reading this about international or interracial relationships is very true. The same can be true of any relationship. My husband is my closest and best friend, a sounding board, a partner in crime not real crime, he is more cop than robber , and a lover.
He can irritate me and flabbergast me in a blink of an eye. But we are in this trip together. His family is just as crazy as mine, and we are lucky enough to share the same type of craziness. Everyone forgets that any romantic relationship takes work, but it is harder for people who have visual differences between them. I think you are touching a lot of people with your social media sites. I am a white woman living in Minnesota and my husband is of Vietnamese decent.
I am lucky to say his parents are unique in that they allow their children to make their own decisions and live independently, as long as they are working hard and making a living. I know there is likely some small disappointment in that he did not marry a Vietnamese woman, but his parents have been nothing but supportive, and are always kind to me.
We have experienced some racism sadly, which has mostly been negative stereotyping toward my husband. I have to say it is pretty pathetic. Other than that, we have had nothing but support and love from family and loved ones in the Twin Cities.
Nicole, can you blame those poor souls for making fun of your husband? They are the ones hurting with their egos torn apart because deep down they know they are nothing more than just wimps. Their only weapon is their mouths, controlled by tiny brains that utters nothing but bile.
What woman would want to claim such so-called men? Is it anonymous people on the internet??? Is it people from your hometown???? I was born in NJ and am of Chinese descent, my wife was born in rural Tennessee. After moving here to Tennessee, I have found that the stereotype about southerners is incorrect. I have not found southerners to be more racist than northerners. The other stereotype is that conservatives politically are less tolerant and more racist than progressives.
I have found that the opposite is true. Living in big metropolitan cities in L. Come to think of it, the people I used to know from Montana, Yuma Arizona, Ohio, and Savannah, Georgia were some the best and dearest, if not the nicest people I have known and spent time with. Most of them have ranches and horses, plus the Georgia Peach I once dated more than 20 years ago was the sweetest little thing. I regret losing her because I was a young rebel and arrogant asshole punk.
I agree, it is strange. It would be nice to a have a reference as to where theses kinds of comments are being made? Outside of Tokyo or a small town in Texas? I know many similar couples in Seattle, Philadelphia, NY, Connecticut and California that havent experienced this and find it a non issue.
All one would have to do is read the newspaper from time to time. It is seething everywhere in the fibers of societies. Excluding southern cities, where there are higher conservative religious populations. Although they preach thou shall not judge…they spend most of their time deciding what is right for others. And my heart goes out to all those who have to go through that.
I hope that your partner is as supportive as my boyfriend, because they can be the greatest source of strength when faced with something like this. Back in Indiana in a Caucasian woman literally threw up when she found out that her son was engaged to a Japanese American woman. After all only white people can be rich. The eye colour issue is one I find intriguing. So not being able to pass on blue eyes to the next generation has been no sacrifice for me at all.
As a white woman being married to a asian man things are terrible. I love my husband but I am treated terribly. And it can be hard to predict because so much of Asian racism is under the surface. His mother and sister say backhanded comments and give me dirty looks. His mother even hits me and steps on my feet on a regular basis. As long as I stay away from his family and the Asian community everything is fine. Yep, she has the southern drawl and all.
We had our share of racism and stupid ignorant remarks. But we have and continue to overcome. We have a biracial daughter and an adopted Chinese daughter. We are both stubborn ishi atama. But mostly it is because we still love each other. She stil is and forever be my heart. Like the character in Massan. Given we both came to the U. But it was hard blending six kids from two different cultures into one. Lucky our kids were all over 21 when we married. But I sometimes see the racist looks, hubby never sees anything thank God.
But we only see each other and how lucky we were to find love at our old age. Move to the San Francisco Bay Area! Go spend a few days there and see for yourself. I think its great to have a multicultural relationship! Its much tougher than relationships with people of the same culture because of the tiny quirks that you need to learn. As a woman who have dated several Asian men and is currently dating one, I can relate to all of this.
Thanks for opening my eyes to the AMWF groups online. Thank you for a great post. You guys look awesome together. Much love from Sweden. Free or discounted flights for you and your family.

Most of our conversations consist of hand motions and exasperated smiles. I want to marry my Japanese boyfriend, but there seems to be a lot of things to discuss, like where will we live, does he have a house, does he have a plan and what job should we do etc. How did you guys go about it? Comics, video clips and blog about Grace and Ryosuke brings me back fond remembrance of my own life.
After hearing about so many conflicts my wife had with her family, I decided to go to her house and ask for a permission to marry.
This was back in We were married in , and left for Japan in My wife was totally color blind in terms of races. A few times I had to protect her from curious eyes and vulgar comments of drunk people on the train, but we have been fortunate enough not to have to directly deal with negative comments about our intercultural marriage. Our life together has been a true adventure for the past 35 years.
Our life is winding down now in expectation of retirement for the both of us. Our intercultural marriage has been fruitful and rewarding. I wish the best of luck for all of you in the similar situation. This was an incredibly sweet read. You and your wife sound like pretty incredibly and interesting people.
Your relationship with Ryosuke is very similar to ours especially at the beginning of our life in Japan. Humorous, fun and spontaneous. I am very thankful to my wife for always kindling little fire in our life together through the years. Challenges make our lives interesting and special. Distance is worth it!! My biggest issue so far is about animal rights in Japan, I am so shocked by the ignorance towards the suffering of animals, especially of fur.
I am a long term vegetarian and my boyfriend has been so great to. Wearing fur is a very cultural thing. Also, most fake fur looks and feels really bad and cheap. You can try seeing if there is any high quality fake fur on the market and present it as an alternative. Thank you for writing this article two years ago. I stumbled across it when reading some of your TokyoCheapo stuff. Although I was raised in Philadelphia, we have had many of the problems you brought up in our lives.
Sometimes I wonder if we are fighting against the odds, but articles like this are amazing. Thank you for touching on some of the most sensitive topics that we do face Especially in the Central US…. It made me feel a lot better. Although he was born in Boston, his family is very traditional. His family came over as refugees with nothing and speaking no English, so they have had to work very hard.
He and his siblings were basically raised by his grandparents while his parents worked day and night. When he did see his parents, interactions consisted of criticism, coldness, and stress being taken out on them. An obvious amount of love being shown through the food they cooked and how hard they worked to provide a great life for them, but not the outward display of love, affection, and support I grew up with.
In recent years, the differences in how we were raised and how that affects our character has become more obvious, and at times, very difficult to understand and cope with. It was all behind my back though, or to my face but in Chinese. I have to say though — the thought of our parents meeting makes me veeeeery anxious just for the amount of awkwardness that will occur. It took a while to figure it out, I guess. In general, Asian cultures tend to express love through cooking, providing, doing laundry, etc.
They show their love through actions. On the other hand, Western cultures tend to express love through words and emotions. Hey, I found your blog through YouTube and it makes for super interesting reading! However his parents both grew up in Taiwan so culture shock is still a thing.
I think you guys are an awesome couple. Just started dating other ethnic group mostly caucasian. It always fascinates me when a woman see you as something mysterious. It keeps things fun and interesting. As a matter of fact, less than a century ago, it was illegal in Texas for a white person to marry someone colored. That ended when S. Thank you ever so much for making this blog!!!
I speak extremely bad Japanese and he barely speaks English but somehow it worked! We kept in contact and when I got back to my country he expressed the desire to stay together, to try to make this work. Even though I have important midterms barely a week after I get back, skip obligatory Christmas parties AND spent a good chunk of my savings……. But being crazy is also quite exciting. Reading your posts made me feel encouraged.
Your writings make me feel comfortable in being crazy and make me understand the small things about Japanese culture that used to annoy me about relationships. Israel is, strictly speaking, located in Asia and therefore Jews are asians. Likewise, Russia lies mostly in Asia: Russians are mostly asian. Berlin demanded that Tokyo return these Jews to the Nazi, but Tokyo remained staunchly silent throughout the war years, thus allowing thousands to survive the Holocaust.
Americans in particular love to create these black-and-white racial distinctions, just like the Nazis. Yet that is not a distinction made by the Nazis, who were perfectly happy to form close alliances with the Spanish fascists under Franco or with Italian fascists under Mussolini. Modern Americans are more racist than the Nazis in prescribing to this perverse White vs Latino terminology. Little wonder so many Nazis fled persecution by fleeing to Latin America!
What a stupid terminology! So, I guess that means that all Caucasians are Asians??? Sadly, modern Americans prescribe to ideas of race that look like they come straight out of the annals of Nazi propaganda. Jewish, Indian or Russian? Um, how about no? My preference has nothing to do with a fetish. Love knows no boundaries and I am heartened to read the comments here and the blog which provided great insight. I do think LDRs are difficult and exciting, and yet the practical day-to-day without the partner physically present will test the resolve of most couples.
Virginia and South Carolina, Asian man and a white woman…it has be careful written all over it…at least until you move back to California. We only dated for a short time, but because of that short time, we never really got to really know each other and our cultures. We dated over 4 years ago in high school and after we broke up and I moved back to California , we tried to work things out but to no success. She is from Pennsylvania. But what makes an interracial relationship even more complicated, is the distance.
Now she is in Virginia for school and I in South Carolina. I hardly hear from her. Now there is another, who seems genuinely interested, Stacy. Does it make me a bad person? To let Katherine go for Stacy? Thanks for sharing your story! My ex-boyfriend was Filipino and had immigrated to my hometown two years before we met. His younger sister wound up introducing us and I eventually wrote him a letter to ask him out. We were together for two years but things ended sort of abruptly, mainly because we had too many personal differences not cultural that made it difficult for me to stay with him.
My current boyfriend is from Malaysia and I love him more than anything. My boyfriend is the most open minded, talented, and smart person I know. His mom is super nice and so is his brother. My boyfriend is very vocal if anything bothers him, which is great. But people can still be ignorant.
I hate people watching us in restaurants or in public. I think my relationships have made me much more aware of the world and have built strongly on my own character. Oddly enough, when I dated a guy from Mexico no one made any comments. And, of course, when I dated white guys, no one said anything.
They are talking to themselves. I had no idea about the AMWF online community until now. I truly believe the cultural differences in our relationship make us stronger together because it almost.. We have talked non-stop since we met and no topic is off-topic, we have so much to learn from each other and its just fascinating every day. We teach each other about each other every moment to prevent insecurities about our differences and social pressures raising their heads.
While communicating with each others parents can be really intimidating with our mutually jumbled accents, laughter sounds the same in any language and we have a lot of that! I love that other people are expressing these thoughts as well! Because all white girls are like the ones you see in porn, right? And they all watch WAY too much porn. And we have NONE of the problems mentioned above or in general about interracial relationships.
I translated as much as I could of course and while my family tries to learn Japanese he tries to learn English. This post really hits home for me. Being an Asian-American male there is some slight differences than if I was born in Asia but for the most part there is still the stigma.
I myself have had experience dating white women well as Hispanic-American and Asian-American but in the case of non-Asians I always felt that the women were open-minded to dating Asians but that I wondered if there were non-Asian women who seeked out the Asian man as I seeked out the white woman.
This is what I felt like would be successful in the long run but have yet to find it. So my question to you is were you open-minded or did you have a preference to Asian men? I am going to read more about your blog and the AMWF communities. Thank you for turning me onto this. It is very encouraging to me. I too love Japanese culture and would love to visit someday.
But I still wish to offer support in the fact that I appreciate you for breaking the stigmas and opening the dialogue. Only in the last few days did I do some decent googling and find out there was an acronym of AMWF and from there I discovered more blogs like yours and great forums like Hey-Ai! What do you recommend that I do? Or should I just wait? Ask him on a date. My name is Joel. Im an asian boy or islander to some of those. Filipino to be exact. I have always dated within my race or asians only until the past few years.
I served the Marine Corps for awhile and opted out to the private sector. I got burned out and wanted to escapem I went to a friends ranch in Montana. There I met this beautiful country girl. She was a sassy classy and smartassy. She blew out the stereotypical within asian stereotype of white women as lazy.
Hell she taught me to mend fences and muck stalls and brushdown horses and saddle them. I taught her the art of long range marksmanship lol. Im now just into white girls. Theyre more adventurous and willing to explore and not close minded. However I cant same the same in reverse. I was once on a dating site and Id say out of 20 white girls only 1 would respond. I wish there were more open people. I loved your story and your blog and your pictures.
I couldnt help but laugh at how your husband has wiping your feet before bed or showering twice a day. Its a cleansiness thing. And you still think they are open minded, based on this one white girl you met??
White American women particularly from the South very close minded or outright racist. Very few like Grace…and most of the AMWW couples are better off living in the Asian country…too much racism against IRs in this country especially in Texas and other areas of the south. Actually, most of the racism we have experiences as an interracial couple has been in Japan. I think there is this stereotype that Texans are rude, racist, and close minded… but you can find rude, racist, and close minded people in EVERY country.
Many more stares, comments, questions in Japan. You folks are very lucky…Greenville, SC? In Japan there is probably a lot more verbal racism, but little or no violence from what I have seen…been to Japan ten times in the past fifteen years….
Yes, some areas of Texas experience pretty extreme racism. However, we choose not to live in those areas. Yeah plenty of racism in Asia…however, mostly passive racism, and people get annoyed when I make an example of Athens, GA…when I say that it is a one way street.. When this happens in any electoral district in Japan you can say Asia has caught up with America or at least the US South.
Just take a look at how the internet is responding to this guy Julian Blanc , who claims white guys can have sex with as many Japanese girls as they want: Seeing it in real life was something else to my nine year old mind!
I find them hilarious, because their jealousy makes me feel lucky. My dad watched that religiously, even though we lived in California. So I never really developed an interest in it, in fact I kind of just ignored American news and world affairs in general, because I thought, well, what can I do about any of the things I do occasionally hear?
But her on the other hand, she grew up in a family that was very well informed on current affairs and in the beginning stages of our dating, she would mention a few things that she would come across at home watching Colbert with her parents, or even just read about on a news app on her phone. I would never know what to say about anything, and that frequently left me a bit embarrassed.
So with her help, I started paying more attention to what goes on in the world and I actually find it a lot more interesting than I used to when I was in high school. Except when it came to telling the truth about whether or not we did our homework.
I realized that I have to change and be honest about everything, or else I would never be truly happy, or find true happiness for that matter. I already know my dad will not be happy with my choice in my partner. He has expressed many times that he wants me to marry a Chinese or Taiwanese woman. He has tried so many times over my life to brain wash me with story after story of how every single Chinese man that he has known that has married outside of his race has met a tragic end to his marriage, due to infidelity or cultural differences.
I will marry because I love, not because of your stupid ass. I love my white friend whom I am dating. I love the shape of her bones and her personality.
I love how she is so different from me and think about things differently than me. She is my role model and I love her. Make it about the person you love and everything, the good, the bad, the ugly that comes with race will disappear. I can understand that. I used to judge the Asian girls that would only date white guys too.
So I just smile. At first, I felt a bit awkward about it. Like, my parents live in Africa. They should and will naturally guide our choices out of their parental love, but not dictate.
I find some of the unique features in regards to public acceptance of your relationship to be similar as to how same sex couples disregarding race are currently accepted in the US. Congrats for 5 years! Total population-wise, Asian men married out more than White men. The numbers are much closer than I realized, though.
The gap numbers is not that much, considering that there are a lot more White guys than Asian guys. This is a very misleading way to look at it. It would be much better to directly compare Asian female statistics to Asian male statistics. On the other hand, if asked by Japanese women, maybe they would like to date a white guy and really surprised. Maybe concept of romantic love is still not that en masse in Japan?
Recently my husband has also been showering 2 times a day and washing his hair each time! It really is a cultural difference, I guess? Well, given the case, perhaps it really is cultural difference: Even if I had short hair, to wash it everyday would be to destroy it… It probably also is difference in hair structure. Mine is soft and wavy, and reading about rainy season in your blog, I bet mine too will curl up a lot. Thank you for this great blog! I really learned a lot more about life there before going to Tokyo for my first time: What difference would it make it were white girls who caught my eye more?
This is an interesting read. In our case the cultural differences are very small — his first language is English which I speak fluently, same religion, same values in life, both cultures are very family-oriented etc. Dating him has never felt that exotic, we just look really different. We both appreciate each others cultures. About Racism — few people feel very strongly about Asians in Europe, one way or another. My family approved, extended family liked him, in Singapore, and within his family, mixed relationships are common, so his family liked me too.
Only stares and comments ranging from weird to mean have been from Chinese here in Britain where we live. Once a whole group of Chinese language students discussed behind us in a restaurant why my husband was with a white girl and that did he think he was too good for his own kind etc. From that I gather that interracial relationships are still rare in mainland China and Taiwan.
Finnish culture has some similarities with Asian ones, so for me his culture is more familiar than many European cultures. Neither of our cultures are famous for suave sophistication: Awwww, thanks for sharing! That was really fun to read! I find the comments from strangers… interesting. I read this a lot and from my own experiences, have found the most racism from white men and asian women.
I think in both cases, it really shows their owm insecurities and an inferiority complex mixed in with jealousy. I find a lot of wm and af think theyre superior and should be too choice, but really they are not. So when someone acts like that, all I see is an entitled, insecure, jealous little person. You both are such a cute and sympathic couple. I had to find out that chinese guys can be indeed very handsome, nice and caring. I returned to the Middle Kingdom only six months later in October , not because of the guys but because I love the country so much, and I hope to travel to China again still in Btw, I also hope that you guys are not affected by typhoon Neoguri.
Awww, thank you so much! The AMWF community is interesting because we can all share our experiences dating like a normal support group, but with a little twist.
Most people find themselves a part of it without even realizing it. In any case, best of luck with you travelling! I know this comment is turning out a bit messy, but bare with me.
At times it feels a bit impossible when I think about how all the differences just pile up like roadblocks, but then I come across things like your blog, and it makes me so freaking happy I just wanna hug you for existing!
I find myself attracted to tan or darker skin. For me pale skin was always a turn-off. I hope I can find someone like that some day. Most important thing is to be happy. The whole world can crumble and be cynical, rude, insensitive and just plain archaic in its views, as long as we are happy. I found this very interesting! I am an American living in Taiwan. I have been here for about 2 months now. It is a bit of a culture shock for me, especially learning Chinese.
I came here for a great job and I will be here for awhile. I live with my co-workers and it is a great setup. I like one of the guys here very much. He is one of the few people who can speak English. I believe it is a heavy burden on him to take care of me. Back in the US I was a very independent person. Here not so much. We were really close but now not so much, I am not quite sure what happened.
I want to learn as much as I can about the culture, but I am not learning as fast as I should? Should my 40 year old brain know it by now?
I believe that he thinks I should, am I wrong? So you kind of just have to guess. I was also very independent in the states — so living in Japan has been good but frustrating at times. Thanks for your reply back! I do believe it is a stepping stone… I also learned yesterday that the men here do not like it when women cry.
I am a wimp when I get sick or hurt, it is imprinted in my American brain to cry. I think things will get better, I think I need to be patient but they also have to be patient with me. Do just just keep my head down and mouth shut for now? So hard to tell… Thanks again!! Well not buckets lol!!!! Hi Grace, Great article….
I hope your article at least causes people to actually think for themselves when it comes to love between all races. As an adopted Korean male growing up in a predominately white small Midwestern town, I actually have mostly dated white girls. I too never realized the greatness of other cultures until I moved to California, so I am just as at fault for having certain stereotypes influence me. I hope you continue to spread your experience and love to the world!
I just want to say thank you. I am an American Women who is attracted to Asian men. But this article helped me realized that everyone else can suck it and I do what I want. Honestly thank you for this.
I have a couple other friends who are mostly or only attracted to Asian men and run into all sorts of weird stereotypes. But as soon as you say you only find Asian men attractive, people start freaking out. It it is so true. I try not to let it get to me and I have noticed lately when I do feel down about this issue I find myself reading this article again. And everytime I am so happy you wrote this article.
Bascially asian guys have litte dicks….. Another crucial thing we are shying away from that I have to bring up… how do you, as a man, know so much about penises?
In order to make your statement, you must have seen literally billions of penises to have taken a cross average from each race, and compared them with each other. That he is smaller than an asian? But then of course, showing genitals in public is gross indecency. Just how far is he willing to go for male pride? I realise that this discussion is now half a year old, but maybe someone will come across it in the future the way I did right now and find my comment helpful.
First of all, you are a sweet person and opened mind. I am Asian and married to a Burmese woman. We both went to US university for our undergrad so we communicate in American English. But I move on because I married my wife for who she is.
For example, my mother-in-law cooks me Burmese food while she stayed with us in California. I could not eat spicy food at first but later I get used to it. Also, my dad could not speak English so he never had a real conversation with my wife at all. Probably never, but that is okay. Everybody is nice and that is the most important. We are lucky that we are both buddhism, so sometimes I bring religion topics to get them involve. We are expecting a baby and I hope this could bring two family closer.
In my opinion, love is enough to keep our marriage but it has to come from both side. Thanks for sharing and congrats on the upcoming baby! My family in America is very close and involved with each other. Even though I know that, I get so lonely spending extensive periods of time with his inlaws.
Thankfully both sets of parents and extended family blessed our relationship and love both of us dearly. I do wonder if having a child would change things, though. I want your sincere answer about my quastion. Thank you and good luck. Good luck and keep looking. I really like your writing; it sounds very genuine and is so easy to connect to. However I find it hard to understand his familial relationships and am wary of this becoming an issue in the future.
I have just loved being introduced to things like proper Vietnamese food: We are both educated and he is an extremely thoughtful and open-minded individual, so I feel we work perfectly together. Considering my two previous relationships with white men who were quite closed about their feelings and beliefs, I am relieved to be with someone who, for example, can see the sexism and racism in the world, rather than remaining blissfully ignorant.
And given that I also have a sister who is dating an Indian-Australian, I suspect she will keep her mouth zipped, or else suffer the backlash of two very strong-minded women, haha. Anyway, despite my rambling, I just wanted to say thank you for your post and I look forward to reading more of your blog! I love reading stories like these. Before meeting my husband, I dated a couple of people nothing serious or more than a month , of different races.
I think being in an interracial and intercultural relationship is one of the most interesting things that has ever happened to me. Hi Grace, this is such a fabulous blog. Thank you so much for collecting all those wonderful stories. I would love to do a guest post for your site.
Some succeed; others fail. All you can do is keep and open mind, be respectful, and be willing to change. The rest is up to your partner. In any case, once I finish the guest post, can I attach it as a Word document to your email gleenn offbeatmarriage. If you colour matched human colours against the true colours of black and white, that would become obvious.
Describing people as black and white re-enforces generic racial stereotypes and thus is racist in its effect, even though that might not be intended.
The general concept of inter-racial dating would apply regardless of race or ethnicity. The term black and white when applied to people needs to be banished forever from the dialogue of describing race relations. Of course on a pigmented scale my skin tone is not white, but I choose to identify as white.
When I lived in Ghana, I had several friends with white skin, born in Africa. It works for this group. I feel like one of the big things this article left out is the way other Asians will look at the white female in the relationship. My husband is a tall, handsome Chinese American, and when we were stationed in Korea, everywhere we went people glared at me. Not to mention, his mother disowned him when he told her he wanted to propose to me before he even had a ring!
My husband never had any problems with his family or friends — they were all incredibly supportive even though no one in his entire family could speak English. A couple months after he proposed, both his mother and father started taking English classes at a local community center so they could one day talk to my parents. Fuji with his branch of police officers. That sounds very rude. Do you think his family or just other strangers are the most opposed to the relationship?
I too have had to deal with this issue. I have dates 2 Asian men in my life and I am a white american woman. And not only dod I get criticism for being g with an Asian man. But everytime one of my boyfriends would take me out with his friends. They would scold me and make rude comments and it put a lot of stress on the relationship because I never wanted to spend time with his friends.
Which of course was unfair but it was hard dealing with that on a daily basis. Being a mother of a girl in a relationship with a Japanese national makes me want to reply. My daughter talked about this blog.
I will be honest in saying that your young age made me kind of curious and doubtful at the same time. My girl is committed to a man as well..
