Advice

First Date

The first date is always the hardest and sometimes the most fun or worst time ever. Either way, it will be quite a unique experience.  Have an open mind, listen and don’t expect the other person to be like you.

First 3-6 Months

So you made it through the trial phase.  Are you more comfortable with your dating friend? You may be in the phase of transitioning to a relationship at this point.  More bumps are ahead and you need to keep the open mind and embrace your differences.

So You Made it to 1 Year

What a year!  You have learned a lot about each other and yourself.  There still may be some things that you are uncomfortable with.  Ask other interracial couples, how they manage with specific challenges, and they will tell you.
