Ebony and ivory dating
Dear 4-Way, I’ve been dating someone special for about seven months now and I invited her home to meet my family at my mother’s sixtieth birthday party in April.
Here’s the problem: my girlfriend is black and I’m white.
Practice what you and she will do and say if something inappropriate is said or done.
Then brace your girlfriend for the truth: that their way of thinking doesn’t necessarily reflect yours. Don’t miss it because you’re scared to face the “what if.” You’ll regret it, and you may end up resentful because of it.Putting yourself between your family and the woman you love is not an easy place. Doing this at the right time and with ample planning and preparation may yield a much more positive outcome.The Gay Man’s Perspective: Darren Maddox Well, you’ve come to the right source here.I grew up in an all-white county in the buckle of the Bible Belt, so I hear what you’re saying. I was scared to death to take my partner home with me for Thanksgiving.Not for fear that he would have issues with my family, but because I was afraid they would have an issue with me being gay.
