Part of any healthy relationship is communicating about the things you find challenging in your lives — both together and apart. The current situation with your boyfriend is the issue that brings your own uncertainly forward. Interracial dating to me is horrible. I'll be writing the answer assuming your parents are totally cool with dating, though I think you're a tad early for dating, but that's your lookout. Don't be embarassed to tell him.

Haha lol you are a complete idiot. The fact of the matter is, most people spend very little time researching and getting to know the other person before they start dating them. Bottom line though - it's not welcome in my home! It's gotten so bad in my life I've lost 10 pounds, can't sleep, eat or function at work. Try not to let your parent's words affect you too much.

No one expects them to repeat the decision. And my boyfriend, well, he's my first one and I have always liked him and finally now he confessed his feelings for me and it was awesome until now. In other words, don't totally base who you choose to date on whether or not you think your parents will like them. And damn, do I have some fine-looking cousins.
You may also want to talk, at least at first, without your boyfriend present. Something neither of us has found in years and for that reason both hate dating. I feel like I'm living in the 1950s. They too are still happily married to their respective spouses. The hard truth is you live under their roof and they can be as insulting as they want.

I'm obviously still continuing the relationship as I'm not on a family leash in terms of who I can and cannot see, but those comments and feelings have thrust me into an incredibly uncomfortable situation. There's all these issues about respect and the proper way to do things. I recently realized my parent's opinion of the next boyfriend I bring home is very important to me.
