I’ve spoken to my guy friends (all Caucasian) and their feedback is: it’s rare that they meet black women (let alone attractive ones) and while they’d date one, they would never settle down and have children!
Is this because most people picture their future from an early age and mixing it up doesn’t quite sit right?
It takes a lot of focus and commitment to make one last.
One of these difficult challenges is brought up in Brandon’s question here.
I’m so sick of the “you’re really attractive, why are you single” comments because I don’t KNOW why I’m single.
Interracial dating isn't without its problems, but today interracial relationships enjoy more support in the United States than they have at any point in history.
A good rule of thumb is to avoid assuming your partner feels a certain way just because of their race.
Some interracial relationships are bound to be more racially charged and “eventful” than others, like when a Caucasian man dates an African-American woman in the South, or a Mexican woman falls for an Indian man who comes from a traditional family.
With 1 in 7 new marriages in the United States today being between people of different races or ethnicities, however, it’s quite possible you’ll find yourself dating someone of another race.
Here are three tips should you go down that potentially bumpy, yet rewarding path: Be sensitive to their feelings We can never fully understand someone else’s life experiences and how those situations led to their unique point of view.
For example, if an African-American man grew up with salespeople following him around stores as though he might steal something, do you think that affected his opinions and beliefs about how the world works? On the flip side, a white man raised in the suburbs probably didn’t have to think about race every single day, so racial issues aren’t likely at the forefront of his mind as an adult.
They all belonged to your racial group, so you figure you’ll have better luck dating someone of a different race.
That’s because deadbeats, cheaters and manipulators only come in one color, right? The reality is that you’ll have to do much more than land a love interest with a different skin tone from yours to end destructive dating patterns.
This sounds like a typical Romeo & Julietkind of scenariotwo people from different backgrounds or cultures coming together to prove to the world that love can rise above all our differences.
Sometimes it may seem like everything is working against you just to make relationships even more difficult. If you only knew what people went through in their own lives, you’d see how challenging all relationships can be.
God made all of us, including the color of our skin.
It’s more important to date someone who shares your same beliefs and values, than your skin color.
