Dating a white girl with a black child


I’m sure my dad didn’t think he was good enough either. It felt like a fit and I was pleasantly surprised when he invited me to spend his birthday weekend with him and his family in Palm Springs. As the holidays approached, I wasn’t sure what to do. When I told Aaron this, he offered to drive out to Vegas with me at some point during our holiday break to go see them.

He had every right to be sad, angry, pissed off, frustrated, or just instantly “over it”.

The conversation quickly fizzled and I walked away knowing my pain was now his too and there was nothing I could do to fix it.

I grew up in a wonderful and loving home in Southern California.

I had an older brother and sister 12 and 15 years my senior respectively, parents who were happy together, and my aunt and cousins lived one street over.

I left Aaron alone for a while both because I wasn’t sure what else to say and because if it were me, I would have wanted time and space.
