7 Tips on How to Maintain a Healthy and Happy Interracial Relationship

Copyright (c) 2008-2017

Relationships are hard - each and every one of them, everywhere, and with everybody. Inter-racial relationships are even harder. This is mainly because of the values and cultural differences as well as stereotypes. However, that does not mean that these relationships never work. In fact, many people have made their inter-racial relationships work, and have maintained long-term, happy relationships.

Often, we find ourselves not knowing what to do when it comes to relationships. In these instances, we need a good sign or road map to help us on our way better. If you are indeed feeling lost, and you are engaged in an inter-racial relationship, then you might find the following information helpful. These are a few tips on how to maintain a healthy inter-racial relationship.

1. Remember the basics.

Remember that you want the relationship, and that you want it to work. Sometimes problems and obstacles can cause the person to forget why he or she is in the relationship. Re-affirming to yourself that this is the person you want to be with allows you to remember the many reasons why you are in the relationship with the person.

2. Accept your differences in religion.

More often than not, religion between two races is different. When people of different faiths enter a relationship, the main key for a relationship to survive is to respect each other's religion and perhaps tread a bit lightly as there might be some topics that could hit raw nerves without you meaning to.

3. Stand up for you and your partner.

Sometimes, situations arise wherein some people feel uncomfortable with interracial relationships. These are people who cannot help but stare at you on the street. Obviously, these people should know better, but nobody is perfect. When these instances come up, stand up for yourself, your partner, and your relationship. Do not be ashamed to love each other openly and proudly.

4. Talk about your expectations.

As the general rule in any relationship, communication is the key. In this case, you should be open to your partner as to what you expect from the relationship and from your partner. People often differ with regards to their expectations and getting things out would clear out any details that might cause conflict between the two of you in the future.

5. Open your mind.

A different race means a whole new culture. A different culture means new language, new music, new food, and as mentioned previously, new religion. Perhaps the worst thing you can do is to insult your partner's culture just because it is not the same as what you are accustomed to. Still, nobody is forcing you to do things you do not want to. However, if you find yourself wanting to please him or her, try to be a bit open minded and try out some things. Chances are your partner will not push you to do things that are too extremely different. Go slowly and ease into things.

6. Strive to understand.

Different races are often faced with different issues and problems that sometimes you might not be able to comprehend. That is completely okay. However, it is not okay or advisable to disregard your partner's problems. Having him or her open up and talk about the things that are bothering him or her would help you see his or her point of view. Who knows? You might be able to pitch in and help solve the problem.

7. Let your instincts lead the way.

This might sound a bit simple, but there is much truth to this as, more often than not, your gut instinct is correct. If you sense something wrong about your relationship and you think that it does not feel right, then it may be best to end it. And if your instincts tell you that you should make the next step, then chances are that you have found a genuine relationship.

Unfortunately, society does not yet accept interracial relationships fully, and this is one of the major things that can affect a relationship. Although interracial couples face a multitude of obstacles, their love for one another will help them survive condemnation by some members of society. By taking note of the tips mentioned above, partners in an interracial relationship should be able to create a stable core in their togetherness that would take even the strongest of winds to knock down. Being solid and prepared for certain scenarios will help the couple deal with unpleasant and potentially harmful situations when they happen.

Cheap Tattoos Cheapen The Tattooing Experience

Many of my girlfriends have "girl nights" around getting tattoos, as if it were as casual as getting a haircut or a manicure. The casual attitude toward tattoos bothers me for two reasons; there is the age old argument that tattoos are permanent and not a decision to make lightly. The other argument I have against tattoos is that getting a tattoo on a whim significantly cheapens the tattoos that others have for cultural reasons or to commemorate a major life event.
