The question:

I just recently signed up for your email subscription. I get so excited when an email pops up from you. I enjoy reading the questions and articles you share. I recently started dating a white man and I really like him a lot. He treats me wonderfully. Always holds my hand in public, takes me out regularly and just really treats me like his queen. I like that he’s proud that I’m his woman. I feel we’re constantly being stared at though. He said he doesn’t care what others think and to let them just stare. I just turned 40. Was married to a black man for 17 years with 2 kids. Been single 2 years. Met my new guy online (okCupid).  So that’s my background. Here is my issue.
