Am I just being silly?

I need to ask an opinion about something.

I am a 27 year old single male. There is this girl that comes into my job that I like. I have a co-worker that sorta knows her. Not very well but they do talk and stuff. So I asked my co-worker to have a talk with her to find out how this girl feels about me so she did and it turns out that she likes me also. Now I am very happy and excited about this because shes very sweet and pretty and I like her alot but heres my background is Irish and German. Her background is Polish. It doesnt bother me but I am concerned about what my family's reaction would be to her. I am not trying to say that my family is predujice or anything like that but its just that they tend to be old fashioned and traditional, plus my whole life I have always dated girls that were either Irish or German. She speaks both english and polish fluently and shes like a real sweetheart but I dont want my family to freak out over her either. Should I just go for it and see how it works out?

Yes, go for it. If you've met someone you like and she likes you, then don't sit around. Don't worry about what you think might be an issue until it actually becomes an issue.

Personally, I don't know of many people in this world who aren't of mixed ethnic backgrounds. Please don't base a relationship on that, or even what your parents think about her. Since you're the one who will be dating her, its up to you to see if you two are compatible. Go for it!

Re: Am I just being silly?

Sorry Matt, but yes I think that you are being extremely silly. You are 27??? you like someone and she likes you, and you are still asking shall I meet her?
Also, it's not that big difference in culture, is it?! I mean it's not like you are from earth and she's from Pluto..You even speak the same language and are co-workers....But please do yourself and her a favour, if you are going to bring up and highlight your family's preferences, let her be loved by someone who is more confident than you and a 100% sure of what he wants.
