4. People are Inquisitive
People will ask if the stereotypes about your partner’s race are true. These conversations will be uncomfortable. Take them with a grain of salt and try to handle them with a sense of humor.

5. And They Always Want to Know More
People will ask about your families and how they feel about each of you dating a person of a different race. You might want to come up with a couple of slightly funny, easygoing responses to these questions. Maybe something to the effect of, “They barely tolerated the neo-Nazi I saw for a while in college so I think they’re pretty pleased with my choice now.” And then smile your biggest, most genuine smile.
