senior asian couple

You have been dating your Asian partner for a while now and like it or not,  at some point, you will have to meet your partner’s Asian parents for the first time.

Meeting the parents especially of an interracial partner is something most people dread. One thing people worry about most is whether they will accept you for being a person of different race. And their acceptance might affect your relationship one way or another.

There is no reason to think that they wouldn’t like you if their daughter or son likes you. Today, most parents don’t meddle much in the dating choices of their children. They let them feel free to choose whoever they want to date.

So how do you get yourself ready for that dreaded first meeting?

1. Learn a thing or two about your partner’s Asian parents

Family is very important within the Asian community. This will definitely show that you are committed to him or her and that you are looking forward to being part of their family.

Find out their likes and dislikes and ask your partner the dos and donts you need to be on the lookout for.

2. Don’t be on first name basis with them

Refer to them as Mr. and Mrs. It shows respect which is very important to Asians.

3. Buy a gift

4. Familiarize yourself with some of their traditions

First off, dress in a modest way. Another thing with most Asian homes is that people remove their shoes when getting into the house. So talk to your partner so he or she can fill you in.

5. Don’t be too touchy

We understand you are in love. Avoid public displays of affection in front of the Asian parents. Save that kissing for after the visit. Discretion shows respect.

If he or she mentions a state in the U.S., then let it go. America is his or her home.

Why People say Interracial Dating is the Best

Dating only white people — or black, or Asian, or Hispanic — seems like a dumb hill to die on, especially considering all the reasons why interracial dating is pretty darn spectacular.

Interracial Dating

Wild love: Moreover, it’s a lot harder for your man to be bad at lovin’ and sexy-time when he’s confident about who he is as a person.

Learn to laugh a little: You’re going to make mistakes, say the wrong things and stumble into faux pas. And it’s OK. Maybe race relations need a little levity.

A religious dimension: Even if you and your new beau come from the same religious background, your differing racial heritage will bring a new dimension to your faith. For instance, you’re likely to experience the Christian faith differently between a quiet baptism and a gospel brunch.

Hooray for traditions: Holidays are no longer just holidays. Fourth of July, for instance, takes on added meaning if you celebrate with a boyfriend who was born in a different country. You might find your traditions take on more meaning when you see them with the eyes of another person.

A delicious smorgasbord: We would be remiss if we didn’t mention the sheer delight of enjoying ethnic foods. Whether we’re talking moussaka, tamales or baklava, your taste buds will thank you for dating outside the box.

This gives new meaning to “family”: Many people cite their families as the reason they avoid interracial dating. But once a skeptical family surrounds an interracial couple, we swear that the love is basically quadrupled.

Who said anything about taboo? :That said, public opinion on interracial dating has changed wildly in the last few decades. Now, over eight percent of all new marriages are interracial, and Americans overwhelmingly approve of interracial pairings. Have no fear.

Basic Rules in interracial dating men tend to ignore

Rules in interracial dating

The basic rules in interracial dating are clear; give attention, trust your partner, be confident of yourself and follow the basic rules that make your woman happy. There is only one basic rule for men especially in interracial dating – keep your woman happy and take the lead. Still men fail to take note of small things that may seem very obvious to do. Women just demand care and attention along with a few gestures that make her feel her value in that relationship. If a woman is not able to see her worth in a relationship she will not stay long or may even show her disinterest in you or even the relationship. Men need to take care of a few basic things that will ensure the smoothness of the relationship and happiness of both partners.

Asking out is the first for basic rules in interracial dating

Women are independent and outgoing today still the basic rules in interracial dating state that it’s the man who needs to take the initiative and ask her out on the first date. No mutual decision making in this regard. A man needs to make sure that even after developing comfort and a lot of communication on an online interracial dating website he has to formally invite her for a physical date. The biggest fear men possess is the fear of rejection in an interracial dating scenario. This fear needs to be put in the backseat since it will never allow you to ask anyone out. And if you don’t ask anyone out you are never ever going to date anyone. Women still wait for a man to take the lead inspite of all their independence.

Sharing to a limit is one of the basic rules in interracial dating

When on a date do not over share things with the woman. Do not whine on your past and talk about any abusive relationships, parental abuse, suicide attempts or nervous breakdowns since she is not there to hear all this. Although your intentions are just to open up and let her know all that she needs to know about you. Remember it is a date and she is there to have a good time. Share only that much that is necessary for the occasion. Don’t let her feel like an emotional sink for you.

Not letting her pay is an important basic rule in interracial dating

She might tell you that she wants to split the bill, however you being the gentleman, are not going to let it happen. Women tend to put this proposal before the men they date. They do not have a problem with splitting the bill. However it is surely going to leave a bad taste if the bill is splitted. You may be tempted to save a few buck however you are surely going to loose the date and the woman you have yearned to date for a long time. You can slit the bill if you are on a casual outing however on a serious date it is not advisable for men to split the bill.


Are you unknowingly destroying your interracial relationship

Interracial relationship

You have been into a beautiful and emotional interracial relationship after a few weeks of online dating and meeting. This is the best thing that could have happened to you in this life. The feeling of bliss and achievement is unparallel. Keeping an interracial relationship intact for a long time needs a bit of effort from both the partners. You need to make sure that you don’t do a few things when in an interracial relationship to make it work for a long time.

Do not black mail emotionally in an interracial relationship

Playing with emotions and blackmailing someone emotionally to get what you want is the biggest mistake you can commit in an interracial relationship. You tend to be the abuser in an abusive relationship. True lovers never torment each other emotionally for their own benefit. By blackmailing in an interracial relationship you are making the relationship toxic.

Hiding the truth in an interracial relationship spells doom

Hiding truth from your interracial partner in an interracial relationship is surely going to spell doom for the relationship. The basis of any good relationship is trust and respect and if any of them is lost the relationship dynamics go for toss. Anytime you lie or hide the truth from your partner you are passing a message that you do not trust him or her. Being honest and truthful with your interracial partner will surely make your relationship strong and long lasting.

Unreasonable expectations from one another

Expectations crop up by themselves in an interracial relationship. However the expectations need to be reasonable. Being too much demanding or only being demanding in relationship will only destroy the relationship. Unreasonable expectations are nothing but a reason for disappointment and disaster in an interracial relationship. Expect but to the limits and keeping in view the capabilities and capacity of your interracial partner.

Time and attention in the relationship are lacking

There was time when you used to be up all night chatting with each other. You were not able to keep count of time and wanted to be with each other all the time. That was the initial phase of the relationship when you were trying to make an impression. However now you are caught up with work and you message or talk only once a week. The attention adulation and care that existed in the relationship has become a thing of the past. This is the final nail in the coffin of the interracial relationship that both of you once nurtured.

serious interracial relationship

• You no longer think that being with someone is an absolute necessity for you. You’re happy with your own company, and aren’t relying on a relationship to fill a void.

• You’ve been the player and aced the game, but now you no longer want to play games or go round and round trying to figure out what’s on his mind, and aren’t afraid to let him know what’s on yours.

• You’ve gotten over your jerk of an ex, and no longer feel a sting every time you hear his name or see him. Goodbye baggage, hello future!

• Sure, you love chick flicks just as much as the next girl, but you’ve stopped waiting for a Prince Charming to come and save you. Realistic expectations are more your thing now.

• You’ve figured out some sort of a plan for your future and have the energy to dedicate to a relationship.

• The six pack abs, dimpled smile and everything else on the ‘must-have looks’ list no longer stands, and you prefer going by the vibe you get from that person instead.

• You want to include them in other aspects of your life as well, be it valuing their opinions when it comes to your career, and you can’t wait to introduce them to your friends and family.

• You’re comfortable being who you are and embrace all your quirks in their entirety, without feeling the need to change for somebody else.

• You don’t mind a little compromise and are okay with finding a common ground that works for both of you, instead of pouting when things don’t go your way.

• The prospect of having ‘the talk’ about your future doesn’t scare you anymore. Nervous butterflies maybe, but you no longer run away from the topic.

The Best Moments in Every Relationship

1. First Meeting: Whenever you will meet your date one-on-one for the first time. I would say the first meeting with your date is more exiting as you will let all your held-up crush energy on your first date. In other words you can say it is as big a deal as your potential marriage day. Professional Tip for your first Meeting: Don’t discuss your potential weddings on the first date.

2. Nervous Pause Before your First Kiss: The second best moment within a relationship according to me is the Nervous Pause immediately before you will kiss for the first time.

3. The first time you bone. Well, hopefully your first time was a great moment. And if not, you’re a very selfless person for sticking with them.

4. The first time you stay the night instead of abruptly peacing-out like Cinderella the second it hits 2 a.m. Especially if you usually run off into the night immediately after coitus. Well, maybe hobble into the night while trying to put on your pants is a more apt description. My point is, your first sleepover is a big deal.

5. When you are in bed together with your date and did nothing but then too you feel amazing. If you will do this for the first time then of course you will find out that it’s cute and romantic. But if you will do the same thing for the 90th time, then it means you’re mutually-dependent agoraphobics. Also, if you can literally spend an entire day sharing a bed with your date and doing nothing else then it means you’ve got something good going.

6. Whenever you in your relationship you will realize your partner’s family could also be your family (and you’re OK with that). Some people have stupid families. So it’s a relief when you meet your partner’s and you actually feel at home. Getting along with their family instead of feeling awkward and intimidated is great.

7. When picking your partner up at the airport felt like the best moment in the world. Spending time apart (however long) is rough, but getting to see each other again makes it all worth it. All right, maybe it would’ve been better to not be apart in the first place.

Interracial Love is Empowering United States of America

With the widespread use of social networking websites, people in the USA are more attracted towards the interracial dating these days. With the more secure online portals, people can easily find trustworthy dates. The USA has the most secure and protected internet services available. This provides more confidence to the people find someone special in their lives.


Like any other country or the community even in the USA, people were anguish about the threats of interracial dating. At the earlier time, white people have to face the discrimination within their society if they get involved with the blacks as many white people at old times speculate the black as lower in mind and appearance.

The USA has now changed and moved on with the fast-paced lifestyle. It is no longer possible to date people in the conservative ways like dating people who are known to us through one another’s friends, associates, family members, social group, and like that. Lifestyles have changed and people have time to cook meals at home or to go for the night out with friends and families, where they can find the partners or soul mates. This is the reason for people preferring the online dating.

It is apparent that legalizing gay marriage has improved the vision of the people towards the gays and it addressed many issues troubling our society. Likewise, legalizing interracial marriage has substantially removed the social barriers among the people of different colors in the USA. Interracial dating and marriages have worked well on lowering down the racial inequality and separation of the USA on the color basis.

I think interracial dating is a big step towards finding the real racial purity. In our country, we have witnessed many wrongful racial activities and all this happened within our cultured society. Now the time has changed and new generations are witnessing racial equality prevailing everywhere including the interracial dating. This is all turned history when racial discrimination witnessed violence and unavoidably grimy lines in the society.

Look for signs to lip lock with your interracial date

In case the girl is interested in having a lip lock with you on an interracial date she will give out a few signs and signals that you need to catch. It is not too tough to observe and catch these signals. If she is genuinely interested in having a lip lock she will try and touch you more than often while you are together. She will try and touch you on the shoulder or will try to get close to you on one or the other pretext. Observe her movements and see if they are accidental or intentional. In case they are intentional be ready for some nice action on your interracial date.

Follow the signs and take the lead on the interracial date

Once you have got the signals and are sure about her wanting to be cozy with you make sure you have the right orientation of your mind and heart. Being a man you need to take the lead; unless you are with a go getter and bold woman. Reciprocate the signals and make her feel that you got her message and you are ready for it. Look for a space where you can kiss her without any inhibitions. Steer clear of shady alleys. Your or her car or a corner in a park can be a good bet to lip lock without any hesitation. Reciprocate her touches. You can also hold her hand and look into her eyes to make her understand what is coming her way.

Make sure you keep your hormones under control on an interracial date

Once you have held her hand and set your gaze into her eyes move slowly towards her face. Do not rush since rushing can kill the passion of the moment. If she stops you do not force yourself on her. Giver her time and space since she might require it to compose herself to get ready for the lip lock. Move close enough and plant a kiss on her cheek and then move towards her lips. In case she changes her mind mid way show her respect, apologize and thank her for the wonderful time you have had. In case the situation gets awkward crack a joke and thank her for being with you.

Tips for Dating a Sober Person

Dating a sober person after he or she has come out of years of addiction is in itself an experience that will go down as one of the best feelings and experiences in life. Dating a sober human being is like a roller coaster ride whenever there seems to be a relapse of the addiction. In case you haven’t touched or done any kind of drugs or drinks in the past you will find it a bit tricky to handle a few situations arising because of the mood tantrums and the missing a sober person will show once you start dating. However as they say love is blind you need not fret much about the past habits or addictions of your partner. Rather focus on the future and live in the present. While dating a sober person you just need to be a bit sensitive and caring towards their needs for love and affection which they may require more than other individuals who have never been through a rough phase in life.

Online Dating Tips

Go into the past life only to an extent your partner is comfortable

Talking about the past life to the now sober should be avoided. Unless and until he or she really wants you to hear out something regarding the past. Taking a sober person down the memory lane where he was an addict or a substance abuser is not the way a dating conversation should go. There is a risk of pushing back the sober human being into the things he or she has come out if you keep ranting about the past and making him or her feel guilty about the things or actions of the past. There are better things to discuss than the past.

Handle mood tantrums with love and care

A person who is sober will go through mood tantrums which are beyond control. While dating a sober person you need to accommodate the unreasonable mood tantrums that mat turn up any time and threaten your relationship. You need to be more understanding and empathetic. Generally the mood tantrum will take a few minutes to few days to end however at the end of the mood tantrum the person will also understand that the mood tantrum was uncalled for which gives you a sense of belonging to the relationship along with worth to your own personality.

Get your kick with the partner’s presence

In case you are the one who has become sober and are dating someone, get your share of kicking from the dating experience you are getting from your partner. Keep your options open to try something new and exciting with your dating partner. In case you are dating a sober person do not keep the relationship monotonous. Try and keep adding something new to your relationship. A new activity, a new place to visit over the weekend or even an unexplored place for camping will keep your relationship up and kicking.

Take some private time out for yourself

Being with a person who is sober can take a bit of toll on your personality. Have some private time for yourself outside the relationship. In case your dating partner does not like a particular activity that you love doing for example reading, take time out of the relationship and pursue your hobbies and passions. This will not only keep you charged up but will also unwind you of any relationship blues, stress or monotony that may creep in. Developing new interests in sync with your dating partner will be a big addition to the relationship.

Knowing the support network will work wonders

Your date will have a support network sometimes from the rehab. You are having your own support network. Keep that support network alive even if both of you are dating each other seriously and do not feel the need of anyone in life. This makes sure that you and your dating partner have someone to fall back upon in case emotional distress. Genuine advice and support for a sober person are very important which generally come from a support network he or she can created over the years. Get to know that support network and if possible become a part of it.

Asking for help at times will be a boost for the relationship

Asking help from a sober girlfriend or a boyfriend will help them to regain their lost confidence and open up the doors for them to seek help from you once they are in emotional distress. Asking for any kind of help even if we know the other person is not capable to help strengthens the bond between the two. Understanding and respect increase among couples who seek each other’s help frequently. However make sure that you are not creating a parasite that will look up to you for all their needs. Empowering your sober date is something you need to do so that a sense of worthiness is created.

A sober person will be a means of self development

A sober person is always discovering the new things he has been missing in himself, his date and the world around him or her. This is a process of a new personality development for the sober soul. Reach out and help the person to create a personality that allows him or her to see and feel the world in its true perspective. His past friends will try to get him back into the fold and people who know the sober person may try to pull him or her down. You as a dating partner need to be the shield around him or her to show the right path and the way ahead for the future along with you especially when you are planning on a long term relationship.

A sober person has a strong will power

A sober human being is a string willed human being and will surely be an asset to the relationship provided you are able to handle the unique demands of the relationship and carry it forward. A sober person will love you with his whole heart and will not be easily bogged down with the ups and downs of the relationship since he has seen plenty of it. It is you who is dating a sober person who needs to maintain his or her cool and take the relationship forward.
