Dating a biracial woman
I’m not surprised that your girlfriend was “surprised” to learn you had a half-black child.
If I were a white woman dating a white guy and he told me he had a kid, by default, I would assume the kid was white, too, if only because despite the rise in interracial marriage and dating, most people still procreate with people who are the same color as they are.
Only someone with real issues with black people, like your girlfriend, would make a big deal about it.
The problem here is not that your girlfriend is surprised but that her commentary on your brown boy seems to indicate that his color is a problem.
Finally I did confront her, but the discussion didn’t go well.
I told her if we’re going to be together, she needs to accept my situation.
) — “I’ve been dating a lady for a while, so I figured it was time for her to meet my son, who is biracial. However, on the way home, she said she was surprised that as a white guy I’d had a child with a black woman.
This hurt me, but I was afraid to confront her about her attitude because she’s the only woman I’ve dated since my son’s mom broke it off.
She kept asking me if I’m sure I’m his dad and why I would ‘do such a thing.’ Confused now, but don’t want to break up. ” I’m going to give you a heads-up that you’re probably not going to like what I have to say about your girlfriend, for whom you obviously care very much.
However, your feelings for her are causing you to overlook some glaring red flags that are not in the best interest of your family.
