Winning her family's approval is harder than I thought.

I have dated an Asian woman before. Yep, before we broke up. On the first stages of our relationship, everything was going smooth. We also had our ups and downs but we both tried to work it out. We had our differences and tried to understand things that differ from both our cultures. We were okay until she introduced me to her family. I know that dating an Asian woman means dating her family also but I never thought it was that difficult to do. I’ve always thought it was easy. Don’t get me wrong, though, I did make the effort to win the approval of her parents and the rest of the family even the rest of the clan, but no matter how hard I tried, they never liked me. I think it has something to do about marrying a foreign man. And yes, it was the reason for our break up. I guess I never really considered how important Asian families’ opinions on relationships until that time.

@indoubtbf What exactly are the things that her family didn't like you? I have so many friends that married Asian women but their families have no problem with them. Their in-laws have been hospitable and welcoming to them. One friend of mine even told me that his wife's family back in the Philippines is so proud to have a foreign man, who will be an additional member of the family.

You just said it I guess. You never really considered their opinions. As far as I know, most Asian people are family-oriented. Maybe those efforts you mentioned weren't enough. You should have deepen your understanding and patience I guess. By the way, why are you posting this? Did you somehow want to get your ex back? Just asking tho. Don't mean to pry. xD

@indoubtbf you must consider their opinions. Asian people are very family-oriented and they are very devoted to their families.
