Boyfriend Got Worried When His Albino Girlfriend Asked Him A Strange Question.
Love, the most beautiful emotion. When you love a person you adore the person the way they are. Colour, height, looks does not matter. The inner qualities of a person should be beautiful. In this story there is a wonderful couple who love and respect each other. However, a question from his girlfriend made me think if he could express his love in a better way for her insecurities to disappear. (This story was sent to us by Evan).
I’m white and my girlfriend is black. She also has albinism. We have been together for almost a year. We don’t have any problems with race or anything, but she often isn’t recognized as black right away and has been treated differently for being albino by both black and white people.
We were watching a movie the other day and out of the blue she asked me if I would still like her if she looked like her mom. I thought it was really random and asked her what she meant because she does look like her mom. She flat-out asked me if I would still be attracted to her if she looked black.
I was shocked because I believe all races can be attractive and I don’t have a racial preference. Also, she does look black. She may not be dark-skinned but her facial features and hair are definitely “black.” I was never under the assumption that she was white or saw her as such.
I told her of course I would and her skin color has nothing to do with why I like her. She said she was just checking.
She hasn’t brought it up again and everything is normal, but it kind of bothers me. I don’t want her to feel insecure in our relationship or about herself. I don’t know if I should talk to her about it again or wait and see if she wants to or just let it go.
Is he Overreacting?
