Sitting in my grandparent’s living room, waiting for our Thanksgiving feast to be declared ready, I spoke to my Persian aunts about my upcoming graduation and my uncertain post grad plans.“So this whole time, you haven’t found a good boy? But there are lots of fish in the sea,” I replied.“There are lots of Persian boys at your university. I feel it’s important to honor my ethnicity and my family, but it’s also important to be me.And I am a Persian Peruvian American that likes white guys.When we get together, each side pitches me their case. It was as if I said I have sex with clowns dressed as monkeys.This is why you should marry that great Persian boy from the local university! I didn’t use the term “white guys” as that might have set the whole house on fire, but jeez, did my two aunts take my declaration to heart.We didn’t date long, considering we were young and in school, but he set the precedent for all of my interracial relationships.After dating more of these men I noticed a trend: All of my relationships with white men involved partners who took me out on actual dates, openly confessed their commitments to me, and tossed around the idea of marriage.It's natural to be curious, but if you're curious interview the white women and don't just become one of them to find out. I know you won't listen to me, but I guarantee you'll remember me when you're over 50 and stuck in that Arab land. Thinkstock I dated mostly white men in my younger years.
i know i once dated a persian man and wow treated me like a queen for the first few months and bam..... maybe you better date middleastern man, who is christian, you know. they are crap and dont even think they are good, stick with your american white men, trust me you thank me later! Many american women are married with middelastern man,and each one, has different experience with them, some are good, some are not.Phil all the time and question everything except their obviously unstable mental condition? There should be laws to prevent international marriages.Thankfully it didn’t matter because white men showed me what I needed to know about love, commitment, and romance.When I was finally old enough to date I went out with the first of many white boys.
I have so many great traditions to follow, a large family to love and laugh with, and relatives that pass down words of wisdom from past experiences.
