What would you do if your parents never approved/liked the person you're dating?
My parents do not like nor approve me dating the person I’m with right now. And, it is mostly because of his race. My boyfriend is incredibly mature and has tried to be polite by extending a hand out and inviting them for dinner or any kind of nice gesture… My parents quickly disregard it and will say things like, “he’s not my friend. Why should I?”
Even when there are certain events, such as traveling, they never include him in my plans. They’ll say I could bring another friend but “not that friend”.
I ask those of you who have had similar situations. How did you/would you handle this kind of situation where you know your parents will not ever like him/her?
