Hi dkscott, how are you doing? I empathize with your situation and think your boyfriend is a good guy! I bet though, when he said you can dump him if it makes your family relation better .. he was secretly hoping you wouldn't start thinking of giving up...hehe. He is a blessed and lucky guy to have you. |
I think not informing your family about what's going on is a GOOD idea, especially If the opposition is so fierce. A pity your siblings don't back you up... afterall, they are the new generation which one might have thought would be more enlightened.
Now Dkscott, I hope you can attain flying colours with regards to your exams, still be nice as much as possible to your parents, learn more about your people and black people...all these will help you in the future. Also, I feel there are other people having mixed race relationships, so you can draw support from them and vice versa (I see quite a few black guys with Asia (from Orient) in London. You shouldn't really feel alone in this!
In my situation, had to break up with my ex because of the long distance...both went back to China. Interestingly enough, my gf parents were all opposed to the relationship with the usual excuses and reasons EXCEPT for my second gf Mum. She trusted her daughter's decision and even sent me gifts :-) :-). I believe the negative media has a lot to answer for regarding our problems.
Anyway dkscott, you will be fine! Glad you have the courage to hold on to what you believe is right . It also great your boyfriend is learning Cantonese. A trip to HK or some other exotic location may provide you two with a good break, take your minds off things and broaden your minds too. But yes yes , i know!..No time no money yet, huh? Probably best if the books come first anyway in your situation! hehe
Okay, you take care, be strong and have complete faith that God, Heaven, Nature or Fate (depending on your school of thought) is fully behind you!
