I date the person, not the race.
No problem at all
We're all members of the human race. So what's the issue?
Your mom was focusing on color versus race. That's sad. We're all human, regardless of the color of our skin. I wish people would grow up and realize that. You're young. I hope that as you age, you don't let your mother's attitudes about skin color affect your ability to love another human being.
You're right, it shouldn't. Don't let yourself absorb other people's ignorance.
Please continue being the "different" child. It makes me happy to hear that. I'm also happy to hear that your family understands how you think. Good for them. I'm also happy to see you're using EP as a way to be heard. There are a lot of people on here who are willing to just listen and offer advice where needed. Feel free to use me as one of those folks.
Race is superficial but differing cultures could prove to be a truly difficult adjustment.
Im fine with that.
I'm very positive about it :)
I've never been physically attracted to anyone outside of my own race but that's just a matter of personal taste. My good friend is in a mixed-race relationship and I honestly can't understand why anyone would have an issue with it - so long as you treat each other well it doesn't matter what race you hail from.
Nothing,in fact,where i'm from,it's normal as we are multiracial here,quite well distributed (lol) so many here end up with partners of different races.
Go for it. I like to see it
^^ I don't see why. I love the Best Answer. It's fate and destiny, I don't see how one's compatibility lies in one's race. It's not something one can choose after all
I would not mind :)
I am nowhere near racist i have friends of all backgrounds, colours religeons and races but i cant date them unless they are also english. am i broken?
Should the opportunity come along I would have no problem at all having a relationship with someone from a "gene pool radically different from my own."
I dislike Martians.
i have always been attracted to boys/men outside my race..........................oh and i imply Homo Sapiens
I would hook up with a martian.
It's not for me, but what others chose is up to them.
Young lady... you have to understand that lots of people are curious about "interracial dating", "interracial sex"...<br />
It's not a bad thing- with one caveat... the person of the other race is not your saviour... they are just a person... and most people are screwed up in one way or another...<br />
Dating is hellish enough as it is (at least you're a girl, you get to choose)
I married a woman of another race... I have a bi-racial child... it can be good.. it can be bad...
faith, hope, love, yes... also there has to be a foundation of commitment, understanding of who you married (the one you dated and mated with is rarely the person you married)... so many things go into it... Lots of people do not understand that this is one the most important decisions to make- my younger brother, married 3X, is just 33. His first marriage "was just for something to do".. needless to say, it didn't last very long.
To reiterate, dating a person of another race has its benefits... see how other cultures live, etc.. I have dated Spanish, White, Black, Asian... so I have seen a lot of how people live. It is a great thing.
YOU define that...
You make the call. It is a matter of preference, a matter of choice.
I wouldn't mind as long as he is good-looking and good human being..
