How to Keep An Open Mind in an Interracial Relationship

Posted by Latoya, 05 Dec 16

Being in an interracial relationship can be a wonderful experience. As with every relationship, you learn about your partner along the way and may even discover new things about yourself. It can be difficult to keep an open mind in your relationship if he/she grew up in a way that is unfamiliar to you. There are a few key things you can do to keep an open mind in interracial relationships.

Embrace Cultural Differences

In many interracial relationships, you will find that there are some beliefs or practices that are different from your own. Take the time to talk about each others backgrounds, religious views, traditions, etc. It’s important to listen to their opinions as well as discuss your own. Be willing to learn more about their views on the world.

Try New Foods

Another great way to keep an open mind in a relationship is by trying new foods. You may not have tried some of their favorite meal choices. By doing so, you discover their food preferences. You will also open opportunities to finding new meals that you love too.

Listen to Various Types of Music

Maybe you’re into jazz music and your partner loves rock. Attend a concert by their favorite artists or play some of their favorite music. It will open doors for both of you to learn and appreciate each others taste in music.

These are just some ideas you can use to have an open mind and keep your relationship going strong. Remember, no two people are exactly alike. Appreciate your partner for everything they are and can be in the future.

    Being in an interracial relationship is really not that big of a deal. I have dated BM that were into rock music and WM that were into jazz and the blues. I wish people would just date or marry who they want to without being so caught up on race.
