I'm Asian and I've dated two white girls. It didn't seem too unusual, if I don't think about it..

I'm actually in one right now, my boyfriend is Caucasian and I'm Pakistani. Everyone says we're cute together too.

Don't matter to me, it shouldn't be a boundary. Personally I like Asian girls more anyway.

I don't even notice most of the time until someone points it out. It's mundane.

silly people stuck on interracial, get back to me when you're discussing interspecies relationships

I am a mixed race person, so.... I don't see what the big deal is.

If you find someone attractive and may even fall in love - I don't see what the problem is. If you get hate in public for it - perhaps you should relocate to a better area, lol.

I think intercultural is more interesting than interracial.

4 out of my 10 relationships have been with mixed or black women.

My longest relationship was with a Filipino girl and I even dated the daughter of an Arab Sheikh for a few months.

I don't really care about race so much, I am personally more attracted to Asian and white girls but skin color is not my defining aspect of whether or not to date someone.

I normally decide to date someone based on how well they match me hobby wise.

I'm sure such a thing would've been a much bigger deal if I were still living in the Philippines since well, it's quite rare to find anyone who's NOT Filipino or Asian. Now that I'm in the US, I don't even notice it because it's such a mixed culture.

As for me, I've only dated other Filipinos / Asians when I was in high school in the Philippines. Not really out of preference, but really because there was no one else. Also, I never took relationships seriously. It was just a good way of having someone do things for me and buy me stuff. Not that I asked. They just offered and I accepted.

My last one and my current one are both with people from other cultures (I prefer this over "race"). It's not because I preferred it that way, but mostly because they caught my attention (and kept it) better than anybody else.

I had a huge crush on a girl whose family was from the Middle East for years, great person.

I'm pretty sure most people here are going to be of the mindset, "I'd date someone of another race." I am too...although I'm married, so, I'm not dating anyone except for my wife. But, I digress.

It all comes down to attraction & interest. If you are attracted to a person of another race/ethnicity and they meet the other things you're looking for in a relationship, then there should be nothing stopping you from entering into a relationship. If you are not attracted to them OR they are not looking for the same things you are in a relationship, then you shouldn't enter into a relationship. Seems simple enough to me...

How would you feel about being in a interracial relationship?
Not a big deal for me, but some of my neighbors would try to burn down my home if they saw me dating another race. Friends? That's ok. But dating or marrying...look out.

But I still don't see a lot or hear of a lot of people in an interracial relationship.

The news is about sensational stories, so you aren't going to hear about it unless it is celebrities or something unusual. I think part of it is based on how humans imprint. We (in general) tend to be attracted to more individuals that are like those who cared for us, when talking about appearances. Our first impressions of people are visual, and that has a strong bias on how people react. Would you react the same way to a clean cut man wearing a business suit and tie, and carrying a briefcase as you would to a dirt and grease covered, muscular female wearing denim coveralls and carrying a chain saw? Now reverse the genders, and would you respond the same way?

That's a non issue. It happens every single generation of my family.

It's very normal nowadays. I see mixed couples on campus nearly every day. My girlfriend is a half-Filipino and I'm scandinavian.
