The basics

Know it won´t be easy. Sometimes it seems exotic and appealing to date someone of a different color or diametrically opposed religion, but in reality it ends up being a lot of work to maintain the relationship. Be prepared for that work, and be sure that it is worth it to you to begin the relationship. The shock-value or exotic-value soon fades, and you are left with a relationship that some feel is inappropriate.

That said, you should not turn down a good relationship merely because it *is* a mixed race or religion. Many, many people have found soulmates that did not happen to look the same as they did, or worship in the same manner. If you love each other, it WILL WORK.
