When you have to deal with "jokes" about your race. When people try to "guess" your partner’s ethnicity.
All I can think is that it has either something to do with a particular neighborhood or, as I learned living in the UK and moving back to the US with my English husband, people get ideas in their heads about what a place (in this case, the US) is like, whether it’s from the media or from friends’ accounts, or reading, etc.

There’s a difference between “this was my friend’s experience, but it may not be typical…” and “there are more interracial couples in X location than Y,” unless it’s backed up with proof. It’s that they are reaching a fairly wide audience of people who may now be using this misinformation to form perceptions on people and places.
You can see by the census numbers, that there is actually a higher percentage of interracial relationships in the US, so, in this case, it would appear to boil down to either false perceptions or particular locations that have more than average, average, or less than average interracial couples.
Back in 2012, “the Pew Research Center says one-fifth of all recent weddings in the western U. were between people of different races or ethnicities”—which is double the number of people in interracial couples living together in the UK, based on the 2011 census, so these studies were both conducted close to the same time.
