I lied to my girlfriend about my nationality. I told her i’m canadian, but i’m really American and she’s going to meet my family soon and i’m nervous. She knows that my family has been here for a “really long time”, so hopefully nothing comes up. I really really love her and am truthful about everything else, but this is eating me up.
Congratulations on making that next step in your relationship. Guess what? It doesn’t matter because Canada and the US are in North America. It’s fine. I don’t think you should sweat it - if anything you could say something like “Of course, we all have American passports” if it comes up.
I’m black and have a white German grandmother. Many of my family members are from Germany so nobody believes me when I tell them because I think I’m trying to be white. Not only that a lot of my relatives were born in one country and live in another country. I have a Canadian cousin who lives in America and she has three passports. It’s not a big deal I promise you.
