1. The golden rule of inter-racial dating is that you must treat your white mate better than you would a member of your own race. 2. Show them more understanding and patience. 3. Lower your expectations for them, whether they be financial or physical. 4. Never complain about your white mate, for you risk your family & friends telling you "I told you so". 5. Keep a public facade of a happy stress free life at all cost, in order to maintain the image of the grass is greener on the other side.
