These relationships were no different than those in my racial category except for one dirty little issue: race.
Most of these relationships did not succeed or fail because of race, but it was disturbing to me that race and the stereotypes attached to them were ever an issue in the first place.
I have a question that I don’t think you’ve been asked before!
I’m a slim and attractive, successful black woman who only dates Caucasian men – but I can’t get one to commit! They all say, “I’ve never been out with a black women before” as if all my bits are going to be different to any other woman on this planet.
I have continually wondered why my race is so important, but never so much as in past dating experiences.
I was raised to appreciate and value diversity in the world around me.
I’m on two dating sites: e Harmony and Match Affinity – both USELESS.My sister gets men to commit but you wanna see the state of them – I have higher standards!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?I’m so sick of the “you’re really attractive, why are you single” comments because I don’t KNOW why I’m single.As for me my long term partner is east Asian, I have never been so happy.
