We met in a pub during the Xmas season. Like in a fairytale story, ours eyes met across a crowded room and we literally fell in love there and then! 6 years later, we are married and have 2 little boys. I still get butterflies when stares into my eyes! He grew up in a small village, with very little racial variety. He is someone who has always seen 'people'. He never looked down his nose at others because of where they are from or their social standing. We clicked straight away, and I loved the way he spoke about his family and the his job as a teacher.

Occupation: 
Case Manager

Christopher and I are from two of the least diverse places in the world - he comes from Cooperstown which is primarily white and I come from Barbados which is primarily black.

Some way and some how, we both ended up in Cortland, NY - another not-so-diverse area in Upstate, NY where it is exceedingly rare to find a white man dating a black woman and we still get the sideways looks and glances.

Josh, Amberli and Baby Vince

Wed, 02/15/2012 - 11:55pm -- JoshAmberliandV...
Age: 
27
Occupation: 
Student and Mom

When I met Josh, I only noticed that he was Korean when my friend jokingly called him ,"Bruce Lee." I could see something in him that drew me to him and getting to know him. In the early stages of dating I would get so uncomfortable when he would crack Asian jokes but I learned to deal with them.

He said he loved me very early in the relationship but I didn't take too much longer to feel it too. I laugh these days when I think of the "love" that I felt for him then compared to the true love that I feel for him now after 5 years of getting to know him on a deeper level.

My husband and I were married on 6/12/10.

We met in college, but were both shy. So, despite the fact that we were attracted to one another, nothing came of it. A year later, my roommate formally introduced us. We were inseparable ever since. Alex proposed to me in November of 2008 and we immediately planned our wedding to take place on Loving Day in 2010.

Alex (who is Colombian) was adopted by Caucasian parents at around 9 months of age. His parents were so accepting of our relationship and marriage.
