A wise man once said “Medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love: these are what we stay alive for.” As we take on the things of the world, but we must not forget to embrace and enjoy the beauty that love has to offer.
The color of one’s skin should never be a hindrance to a life full of love, joy, and companionship. There is nothing wrong if you like dating outside your own ethnicity. Interracial relationships help in making the society better in general as different people are brought together by romance and form mixed family. Healthy families raise healthy children no matter the race or culture of the parents.
The desire for a spouse is the biological and social norm or rather a necessity in today’s fast-paced, rat race type of materialistic society. Cities may be throbbing with ever-growing populace but in midst of the milieu is chaos, insecurity, and acute loneliness.
Today’s dating world
Today singles from all races are finding that it’s not as easy as it should be to make meaningful connections with each other. Often, when we feel truly ready to settle down, that special someone is nowhere to be found.
The desire to progress economically for material possessions and to climb social ladder is so intense among people that it is taking a heavy toll of one’s personal, family and spiritual life. In addition, the greatest mal factor is the paucity of time, which keeps one away from healthy recreation and loosens human bondage, which is a must for survival.
Why date outside your race?
Over the last couple of years, society, in general, has embraced interracial relationships. Awkward stares, gazes, and double takes seem like a thing of the past with many people being accustomed to mixed race dating.
From books, movies, and TV, there is a lot of positive content that has been made about interracial relationships and families. Many celebrities are in a relationship with someone of a different race. In fact, the 44th president of the United States of America is a product of interracial marriage. Society has really welcomed this beautiful change.
Perks of dating from a different race
Learning experience. Dating someone from a different race exposes you to cultures that you otherwise might be closed off from. An interracial relationship can be your ticket into an entirely new world of food, culture, and values. Say you’ve always been deeply interested in a certain culture, a partner who so happens to have grown up with such a background can deepen your appreciation for that culture. With the difference in tradition and background, it’s likely that you and your partner share distinct skill sets and personalities to the relationship. That way, you’re complementing each other, balancing out each other’s weaknesses and boosting the strengths.
Yes, having mixed beautiful children, of course. You and your partner can feel free to adopt the values that you would like from each of your backgrounds, allowing you to reflect on what you really deem important for your family life. That way, your children are not constrained to just one family of thought or one way of seeing the world.
