Great article by Jocelyn – What Do White Parents Think of Asian Boyfriends? :
Over the years, I’ve met many white women with Asian boyfriend and their meet-the-parents story is never quite the same. Usually, there’s acceptance. But sometimes it doesn’t come immediately, or even easily. And even if they welcome you with open arms, it doesn’t mean they understand you either.
One thing is certain, though. White parents sometimes think the darnedest things about your Asian boyfriend.
Worth your read.
It's published on an intriguing website I haven't seen before – Asian men white women with some very unique articles like – “how I got my hot Asian boyfriend” “Flirting for Asian guys” etc.
Well, my story is fairly simple: My parents didn’t really care much about who I’m dating, or more like, what race he is. They are just happy for me that I’m happy with the man I’m with and that’s that. Luckily, it was the same with his parents. He is the oldest son in the family, and we all know what that means. But, his parents have been very receptive of me and they have been kind and thoughtful with and about me, the whole time. So, it’s been easy for us two. His mother treats me like I’m her own daughter, his dad is also like that, and very thoughtful. I get along well with his siblings as well. I really do feel lucky, because I’ve heard a lot of horror stories concerning the Asian parents. The only impediment, and the biggest one, was my sister. It’s not that because he is Asian, but because she’s the bigger sister and she is the overprotective type who is extremely paranoid and wild. Now, he and I live together in a different city. We even have a cat. lol
White parents don’t really care what type of men are dating their daughters, just as long as she is happy! I met my husband in Jiangmen in Guangdong and when we met his parents, they didn’t look very sure what to make of me. A tall white women with blonde hair and light blue eyes, something they don’t see often. But because I can speak a little Chinese they were amused of me and we really started to bond. Now, I live in North Carolina so we had to fly to the states to meet my parents. At first, like my Chinese husbands parents, they were not sure what to make of him. But because he could speak English pretty well (went to English school for 2 years) he was able to communicate with them and make them laugh so they love him!
My advice would be to teach your Asian boyfriend some phrases that he could say to your parents to make them laugh because laughter = good time = acceptance!
We are all the same as time goes on
