His parents will never meet me.

Our breakup happened for many reason, but the main one is because his parents would never feel 100% comfortable with their son for being with me. I’m black and he’s white. Such simple labels that belie a myriad of different experiences. I would think that any parent would be thrilled their son found someone to care about him. C’est la vie.

    I’m sorry that happened to you. Everyone deserves to be with the one they love, regardless of who that is.

    Sorry to hear that. I’m black and my wife is white. Her grandfather was not a fan of me initially but that did not change my wife’s view of me. He came to realize, through interactions, that I was no different than any other human and that I loved his grand daughter. If your ex wanted to keep the relationship going, he should have defended you!
