“Any fool can make something complicated. It takes a genius to make it simple.”
― Woody Guthrie
I like that quote and I can definitely relate it to many situations, but since I’m talking IR dating this month I’m going to connect it with dating. I’m nearing the end of the dedicated dating blog posts so I would like to just reiterate that Interracial dating is just that—dating. It’s not rocket science yet some people seem to be making it as such. Why are we complicating it simply because the people don’t share the same ethnic background?
Will you have issues due to the difference? Sure. The mind of the stupid one is out there so you’re going to face it. But as with any romantic relationship somebody will always have something to say which means no matter the color of the person’s skin you’re more likely to eventually hit a snag. There’s the mother who doesn’t think you’re good enough to date her daughter because you’re not the doctor she envisioned for her baby girl. Or the mother who thinks you’re not worthy of her son for whatever reason she has in mind. Then factor in religious differences, moral upbringing and a plethora of other issues and voila, compounding issues.
Instead of making dating more complicated than it already can be, just approach the interracial dating relationship like any other relationship. Get to know the person and not their skin color. From what I have been reading this isn’t so much of an issue in some of the other parts of the world. For those of you who actually live in America you know it can be a big issue here in some areas. My advice is to stop worrying about what other people think. They don’t have to live with the choices you make; you have to live with them. Make the choice that’s right for you, your life, your future and let everybody else worry about themselves. At the end of it all happiness is a choice so choose it and stop worrying about what the rest of the world thinks you should do.
That’s all for this time. More Dish next week, same time, same place.
