Likewise, sometimes being in a relationship with someone who is from a different racial background can help to expose you to different perspectives. You can gain a great amount of insight and learn about beliefs that are different from your own. If you have been raised by parents that have their own ideals and never explored the topic of dating a variety of races and nationalities, it can really help you to broaden your exposure to understanding other people and learning about their culture.
In some sense, no one is able to really choose who their soulmate is or who they will spend the rest of their life with -- if you love someone or have fallen in love with someone, it is not as if you can ever tell yourself to simply stop feeling those emotions. Sometimes, you can fall in love with someone that you would have never even expected and it can truly have a positive effect on you and who you are as an individual. In consideration of this, and how rewarding it can be to have a variety of people in your life, sometimes you really have to think about how much those who are raised only to date within their race miss out on unique insights and enriching experiences with potential partners outside of their race. Having an interracial relationship is a wonderful experience that everyone should be allowed within their lifetime.
