I don't like tomatoes, but like pizza, isn't that strange?

Its not the same thing.

Hmmm...yeah, mine is pretty stereotypical...

Couldn't help it I guess, living in many places over the world, once it clicked, its just kinda did. Although not opposed to any race, but there is definitely a preference....

Since even though no matter the race their are many variances, but each particular one does have certain features one might just be "conditioned" (maybe even naturally) to like, then toss in tone into that mix, yada yada yada.

I guess I'm above racial preference in the sense that I'm black, but the only two women I have ever liked for more than appearance were white and asian. Then again, I rarely find myself attracted to black girls, I guess they just hold no mystique for me. I don't know where that puts me though.

I don't agree with this. If anything, I have a bias against my own race, which is why it came as such a surprise that I married within it. So I obviously didn't let my preferences get in the way, with a few deal breakers (no smokers, no drug users, & no alcoholics). I discovered that the most important thing in a long term relationship is having shared goals for the future and being able to communicate well.

I think everyone has a preference of what they like, but that doesn't mean that they never go outside their preferences. I find a certain look to be more appealing than another does that make me a bad person? No it doesn't... at least I hope not. . .

I think a better thing to say really is that you're more open to them to at least make an exception. You'd be surprised how people won't even allow exceptions for certain races. Its so ridiculous imo.

I guess it depends how you express your preferences. I don't think you can really help who you are attracted to physically. I have a mental list of women that I find very attractive.

1. Most Asians (Japanese & Korean being my favs, but I have met some really cute Thai and Vietnamese girls too.
2. Italian, Spanish, etc. (certain ones I like better than others).
3. I'm not very attracted to black women. There are some black mixes that I think are super hot, but just the average black woman, I feel no attraction to. Sorry.

I have friends of all races. I have friends that are black women, but they know I'm not into em and we're cool with it. Everyone has their prefs.
I don't like most blondes either, but Scarlett Johanssen is extremely hot to me. Sooo... there you go. I do agree with a lot of Asians sticking with Asians which is a little sad for me... because that's the demographic I'm super into.. *sigh*.

Sooo.. to sum things up.. People prefer certain things over others. That is why there are different types of restaurants and those restaurants don't only serve 1 item.
Just don't be super shallow. If they're super hot and have a great personality then you just got an awesome deal. Looks are nice but you gotta be around this person a looooooooottt if you decide to marry em, so you have to be awesome friends that can have fun together and enjoy at least a fair amount of the same things.

-Done

Indeed.

Are you attracted to family members? Cousins and the like? No?

Reading some of the above comments, it is in no doubt what so ever natural to be attracted to your own. No doubt. But, its also natural to be attracted to something different, something unusual. Although these days the world is so multi cultural that i think this has changed a bit. I mean its not so different now, we all so mixed.
But yeah its not just different appearance that can be interesting or appealing but also the different accents.
Of course anime is a gate way to liking Asian girls. Fact.
And liking anime and Asians is a gate way to liking younger girls, fact. But that's another story. lol

Now you're plain just not making sense.

If you are naturally only attracted to a certain race, you shouldn't be looked down on for it.


Just saying
