It was a cold evening in January when we first met.I was out with my friends when we decided to stop at a Starbucks after our ice-cream outing.I could go on about the history, as I am a huge history fanatic, but I I’ll keep it simple.
I had a gift card and had never been inside a Starbucks before. I can give reasons why, but part of it is more abstract and you can’t explain the feeling in exact words. I remember chasing him around the schoolyard telling him we were going to get married.
That was the first time I saw Seungdomon; my Korean Beau. I thought he was gorgeous, and I couldn’t help but peek through the crowded café over at him. Sometimes when I think about it, I think, “Why do I love chips? Chips are salty, and crunchy and for some reason I am attracted to salty, crunchy snacks more than other kinds of snacks. As for why I love Seungdomon, sure I can list reasons, but above all it feels right in my heart and mind. He never talked much, and I feel like part of that was my fault for traumatizing him. Honestly, I’ve liked guys across all races at one point or another. Unfortunately, there are people in America (and yes I realize this isn’t unique here, but I am an American) who don’t like the ideas of interracial dating/marriages.

Celebrating Every 100 Days People around the world celebrate yearly anniversaries; really lovey-dovey couples celebrate monthly anniversaries; and unhealthily obsessed teenagers celebrate even more often. Of course the big yearly milestones are celebrated just the same.
Even with more mixed race families there will always be those who dislike it. My family never told me who to love, or loving someone was wrong. In reality, it is such a small few we don’t really notice. Now, I’ve grown a thicker skin, so it doesn’t bother me.
I know it may feel like there is a lot of it out there, but in reality, it’s just a small few who are loud enough to get themselves heard and cause problems for the rest of us. Mostly it’s older White men, and older more traditional Asians. The thing I’ve come to realize is racism is everywhere.
Meeting the expectations of your significant other may not always be easy.
But add on top of that cultural differences and you got a whole new pandora’s box.
For me, your soul-mate (if you believe in that) is someone who listens, shares, grows, laughs, and cries with you.
