But after three years of dating long distance and argument after argument.. And even though it didn’t work out and hasn’t worked out with any of these guys since my first relationship, I couldn’t be happier or more grateful for the experiences I’ve had.
I also dated an older guy (as some of you will recall).
I also signed with two talent agencies and booked roles on two different web series’.
I don’t think I would’ve done any of this without being single! When I go out on a date and automatically picture a future with that person, even if I barely like them.
We unintentionally became the poster couple for bi-racial dating!
Some people were supportive, but others said they were completely disgusted. I was so tempted to respond to every single one of those negative comments, but instead I talked through my anger with Troy. Despite the unwanted attention, being with Troy is totally worth it.
But as I got older and my eyes started opening to the world around me, I became curious about what else was out there.
I had my first kiss at 18, my first boyfriend at 18, my first love at 18. You see, when I was 18, I was ready to settle down. ” I had my house, backyard, wedding dress and anything else I could need for my future right there on my Pinterest board.Being showered with so much love this month made me grateful that Troy and I have such a strong bond, even though it isn't always easy.I'm black and Troy's white and being in a bi-racial relationship has been surprisingly challenging. It can be frustrating when all Troy and I want to do is go to the movies and it feels like all eyes are on us.The Bible frequently speaks of those who should not be “yoked” or joined together in marriage; however, each of these cases refer to those who are dissimilar, not because of a difference of skin color, but rather the result of not following and worshipping the same God.SEE ALSO: When You're Socially Awkward You shall not intermarry with them, giving your daughters to their sons or taking their daughters for your sons, for they would turn away your sons from following me, to serve other gods.But even though Troy and I deal with people staring at us on a regular basis, nothing prepared us for a Tumblr incident that happened on New Year's.
