Interracial Dating
Posted 3/8/11 , edited 3/8/11
I searched and didn't find one that fit this description so I posted it. I saw a poll asking the same question, some thread about dating black people, and one about which race you're most attracted to but I didn't personally feel that those were general enough. If I didn't see something I should have, I apologize.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Many people think that in today's society, interracial dating isn't a big deal. That's apparently true depending on where you go. Most of my boyfriends have been of my race, but I've dated a couple who weren't. That wasn't by choice.

Would you all ever be open to dating someone who wasn't of your race?

Have you?

Have you ever wanted to?

If you don't want to, an explanation why would be appreciated. If you don't have one, that's okay, too.

People - please don't pull the race card on others. Sometimes people, for one reason or another, aren't attracted to people of other races. I don't think it's anyone's place to tell another person who they can or can't like. I do believe that there's a reason why we are or aren't attracted to others though and that's what I wanted to find out when I got the idea to make this thread.

I've dated different races along with my own, and from my experience. I prefer different races.
I pretty much get looked down on by my own race because of it. All the women are terrified and think I will never find someone right to marry or that we'll get a divorce because our backgrounds are different. =____=;
Well the men from my race think I'm a slut for going out with a different race

I guess in their head, they assume that when you go out with the same race it will last since you guys are the same. You'll get a long better, your parents will most likely be more accepting, you have a better understand according to religion and culture since they're from the same place, and you tend to look better as a couple since your features look alike

They have a point. I hold absolutely nothing against them for thinking the way they do. But from my experience, I've dated people that are the same race and hated it. I'm not religious, and am real open minded about things which rubbed them the wrong way. They were too busy trying to be my husband well I was only 14. It really pissed me off how they saw the world sometimes, and how they would tell me how to dress. It didn't click, and it never will. I highly doubt I will ever go back.

Interracial dating for me isn't a big deal I'm actually happy when I see this because it just means we can all get along...<i really do smile when I see an interracial couple>

I'm black and dated within and out my ethnic group you get this freedom when your in a diverse society <hahaha> For people who hasn't grown up in a diverse society I can see how it's weird for them so I can't complain but I often wonder if they are ever curious<I know I was lol and still am>

I wanna meet lots of people from all ethnic background and If i can date it's a plus haha <we are one race the human race>we are the same right? We are designed the same

my first love was a caucasian girl.

we got the typical glares & gossip, but at the end of the day.. screw the world; we knew we were in it to win it.

open your mind, before you miss out on a blessing in disguise.

I don't know if I have, I don't ask or anything because I really don't care as long as he's cute. I don't give a shit about race.

lol you wouldnt know by looking?? i mean was it just not dead obvious? great intentions, tho. much love

I hate the notion that just because your from the same place it means you connect better. I actually don't date guys from my own ethnicity for that reason and because it means I have to deal with gossip & crap from my community. Plus I'm a product of a biracial marriage so I can only see it as a good thing that is enriching.

I mean, I'm Polish, and there are plenty of Europeans out there, so I can't tell what country one would be from just by looking. I don't ask because I think that would make them uncomfortable. And I haven't dated anyone Asian or Black or anything obvious, so really I can't tell.

I would be proud of my future children if they did, but until now, I never had the desire to. There are lots of foreighners here in Germany, but most of them are either from eastern europe and so the same "race" or from Turkey, and I don't really like Turkish girls (I wuld also maybe get beaten up by their brothers, because they are sometimes really strict when it comes to boyfriends)
