I’m not racist. But I do stare at interracial couples.
I stare because…
1. I am curious as to what they have in common.
2. How they met.
3. If he/she has yellow/white fever.
4. If they are truly happy.
Now that I’m dating my first non Asian man, I realize how narrow minded I’ve been.
Who am I to think that 2 people with different ethnicities can’t get along?
Or be romantic, genuinely?
I am always the one to tell people to have an open mind about EVERYTHING, yet I was judging every interracial couple I saw.
Maybe it wasn’t judgement, more so a bewilderment.
I didn’t understand it. I have Korean friends and family married to different ethnic backgrounds but never thought I would muster up the courage or be adventurous enough to date one.
I’m taking it all in. Slowly. I actually think it’s been better for me because I went into it with no expectations. Whereas before I had too high of expectations.
I find myself getting surprised by his mannerisms and behaviors because I didn’t think non Asians knew how to be THAT way.
Either way, now I’m one of those.
I swear the times that we’ve been out, people have been staring at us and now I know what they are thinking.
They are thinking the same thing I used to think.
“Oh, she has white fever” And we all know that is NOT the case with me.
Everything is different and I love everything about it!
