Nope, it wouldn't be an issue with my parents. They've brought up my brother and I to be completely accepting of all people so it wouldn't bother them at all.

My parents would be fine with it. My dad wouldn't mind, as along as she speaks English.

At which point I smile sweetly. Whereas my manager's face becomes one of extreme shock, and my work collegue has to go around the corner to laugh his face off. The woman I think realised that what she said wasn't particularly appropriate so hurried out without another word.
Oh my jaysus chrst cant believe that woman! *dies* but bet the stribng handle was fabby..haha.

Seriously though, as long as you're a nice person, you'll get on fine.
A finely tuned sense of humour, intelligence, and work ethic helps too.
Most people are fairly open minded, and its more about how you make them feel rather than where you're from or what you look like.

In America, the white women are good at origami, and yoga.

Yeah, so have mine...to be clear on the race issue my parents wouldn't care...the thing I said bout my dad being a prude related more to the other more controversial aspects

Oh. Well in that case, since I am uh, beautiful beyond comprehension I should have no trouble attracting every female that is fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of my glowing figure...yeah...
There are alot of close-minded bigots where I live and so it's pretty difficult to find a girl with a decent character if you know what I mean. People around here don't really know much about the world outside of their bubble so they don't really know any better. For example, a friend of mine has never felt snow.
Anyway, I wonder if anyone would fall for my pseudo-British accent. I've been practicing. Sort of.

The fact that you're from California and you said that, I can relate... a lot. I could use that excuse about how pathetic the people (or girls) are from where I live, but nobody seems to buy it. Something a lonely person would say. That's bullshit, because I've never felt snow. To be honest, I've never been out of California. Like you said, perhaps I've never been out of my own bubble, but it's a big and comfortable bubble... so there's no rush. I pretty much amaze myself whenever I'm in a different city, it's so different and peaceful. Sometimes I can't even believe there is a place called England. There's a whole world out there, and I haven't seen anything.

I need help.

Sure you can practice an accent, isn't it better being who you are and attracting people (however rare they might be) who like you for who you are, rather than what you want them to see?

Besides I don't need to practice my accent :-P As some here know...

Richard, welcome to the lonely hearts club...band..Okay that was dumb.
Well, I'm not a California native and I've only lived here for about six years now. I spent my childhood in a country under British rule and I was fortunate enough to travel all over the world and interact with different kinds of people so alot of my angst towards where I am now is because it's so different from what I was used to. It's true that this bubble is comfortable and anyone who has visited before would think that I'm crazy for wanting to get out but like you said, there is a whole world out there and it would be really unfortunate for anyone if they didn't get to experience it. So, put on some comfortable shoes and start running. Now.

Yeah I definitely know what you mean. I hope I didn't give the impression that I was trying to be someone else just to pick up girls. That would be terrible.
As for the accent, I had to act out a three-minute dialogue I had written involving an intense Cockney accent for my film class and it didn't sound all that bad. Imagine...skinny Asian kid pretending to be a British thief.

This was a long post. Forgive me.

My voice doesn't suit me. Quite often, people are taken aback that I have an English accent, without even a hint of Oriental twinge. e.g. when I answer the phone at work, when the customer comes in, they don't expect it to be me.

Lol, yeah same here, but I vomit at the thought of any homosexual activity, so I doubt that'll be happening soon.

You know I don't even own any Keira films :-P Or Orlando films at that (yes I don't own any of the LOTR films... shoot me)

If I were gay, and dating a guy, my mother would murder me in my sleep. Probably. Or kill herself. I think she really likes the idea of grandchildren

I honestly at 18 years of age, cannot understand racism or bigotry. It baffles me beyond belief. People actually think that they are better than others because of the colour or their skin or heritage? Based on that, my auntie shouldn't of married her husband because he has Indian blood and I shouldn't date an Irish man because I'm british, it's just bizzarre! I cannot understand it.

As for the question, would my parents be okay with me dating someone of a different race, the answer is of course...HELL YES! Plus, as an adult it really has nothing to do with them.
