I'm dating a Filipino guy for 2 years now, he's my first.

Long story short

Grandma = doesn't care as long as he's not black or brown and that he loves me
mom = born in China, totally flip the table when I told her.

Still dating him and I don't give a damn about her logic (hierarchy, ethnicity, financial..etc.) He has a descent job in a medical related field, has his own car, a house (50%) and I'm hella happy!

P.S 100% Cantonese, born and raised here

The same kind of story came up recently with my family (we're Chinese). My 2 cousins (guy cousin dating an Australian female and female cousin dating a French dude). We had a giant family dinner not too long ago and my grandparents got to meet both the white people. I think it was just how we were raised (we all went to international school and our parents all studied abroad while the grandparents were in HK) so my grandma especially doesn't really mind too much. She would often stare and shit but she won't go ape shit and question my cousins or anything. I think my grandma realizes that it would happen sooner or later since we do live in North America after all..The Australian girl is actually learning Chinese so she would try to communicate with my grandma and it kinda breaks the ice lol. Maybe that's the way to go.

i dated a few asian girls, Im latino. my family hasn't really minded as long as i'm happy but asian parents seem to really be bothered by the fact that im not asian. always seemed kind of tense if i was there for dinner or a special occasion. and i always tried to be friendly, help in whatever way i could to be respectful or whatever. but it was always strange.
i remember one of my girlfriends back in the day was spanish, and it did help alot when i met her parents that i could speak to them in spanish.
but as long as your happy shouldn't really matter what ANYONE says.

I've tried to date outside my race (I'm EI) and there's way too much BS.

When I was younger I didn't really care what race I dated but as I got older and was looking to get serious things got complex. Like for example, the person your dating is obviously cool with you been another race but it's the family and sometimes friends that get in the way and make things difficult and awkward. The sad part is some people flat out refuse to get to know the person of another race and instead judge you based on stereotypes. Now I just stick with my own kind, makes things easier in the long run.
