Just be aware that the person you're dating may be sensitive about subjects to which you just can't relate. Some people will assume that it's a fetish, and that you only like people of that race.

A woman of color might take offense if you refer to her as "exotic", even if you just thought you were giving her a compliment. You will never be one of those weird couples who look related. Some will go further, and assume that you don't like your own skin, or your own race. You become more sensitive to racial issues, and maybe discover a few people you know aren't as racially accepting as you thought.

Here are three tips should you go down that potentially bumpy, yet rewarding path: Be sensitive to their feelings We can never fully understand someone else's life experiences and how those situations led to their unique point of view.

For example, if an African-American man grew up with salespeople following him around stores as though he might steal something, do you think that affected his opinions and beliefs about how the world works? On the flip side, a white man raised in the suburbs probably didn't have to think about race every single day, so racial issues aren't likely at the forefront of his mind as an adult.

Some interracial relationships are bound to be more racially charged and "eventful" than others, like when a Caucasian man dates an African-American woman in the South, or a Mexican woman falls for an Indian man who comes from a traditional family.
