    I need serious help.

    So I’m a young white woman an I’m attracted to my coworker. He’s a young black guy, maybe a few years older than me. You could say it’s a school girl crush. I have no idea what he thinks about me. All I know is that we’re good friends. We do talk almost on a daily basis. As far as dating him, I’m all up for it is he is. The only problem is my parents. They’re not racist, but I don’t know if they would want me to date a non-white guy. Our family does hang out with a lot of bi-racial couples so you think they would be okay with it, but I guess not. I think the only problem is my dad. I’m sure my mom wouldn’t mind.

    So I’m trying to ask two questions, how should I go about pursuing this guy?
    And IF we were to date, how should I tell my parents?

    As a black male who has dated interracially, I can tell you none of that matters if you guys have a real connection. Who cares what you’re parents think? As a grown woman you have to be able to look at what you want and go for it without worrying what others think. If you parents really care about you, they’ll support it and not let a silly thing like skin color get in the way. As far as pursuing, just let him know you like him and he’ll take it from there. Flirt, complement, ect. and he’ll get the hint.
