How can I still make a good impression and let them know I’m not a scary Gentile?
That old advice to be yourself is the best advice ever. When the parents get to know you and see that you adore their son, they’ll come to love you.
And, to my surprise, the stigma of being a shiksa is profound.
The story goes on to say that the Jews were offered the Torah last, and accepted it only because G-d held a mountain over their heads! , the words generally translated as "at the foot of the mountain" literally mean "underneath the mountain"!
) Another traditional story suggests that G-d chose the Jewish nation because they were the lowliest of nations, and their success would be attributed to G-d's might rather than their own ability.
However, unlike the mythic Sirens, gentile women are human beings who live and work among us.
Our "shiksa problems" are not about their mere presence, but about our treatment of them.
