On My Horizion ...

I am not dating a black man now but it is in my future. This has long been a though and desire for me since I can remember. I don't believe that dating a black man would be rocket science, after all they are men. Dating a black man (or any other ethnicity or color) should be no different than dating anybody else.

Years ago it may have presented problems (been scandalous) which was/is unfortunate but now our society and history evolved. It is sad that every once in a while in our so-called advanced society that racial issues still crop up. Though I hope it continues to move to be better. Human nature ... maybe. I was raised and believe that everyone is considered an equal. Words with meaning and rightly so.

I guess though that I would be considered a white woman and as such that it makes it different in some folks eyes. But not mine. I don't have anything to prove to anyone, so I am looking at the possibility that the person in front of me is the one who I would like to be with. If we treat each other with respect then we are on a good first step and a firm basis.

As a true romantic I believe love is where it finds you and that color is not an issue. I don't believe it is wrong if we are fond of each other. We are after all human beings. I think people should date for the right reasons, say: compatibility, attraction, similar interests. To start any way.

All I know is that I need to stand my ground, be a woman, and go after my own happiness. If it is meant to be, the rest will fall into place.

Nonsense. After nearly a life time of not dating men, you now want to date one? Kidding me right? What's wrong with you? Overweight, and think that black men are more tolerant than others in this regard? Or, are you in the mood to experiment? Considering that white women have been dating black men since the Civil Rights Era of the 50's, I don't get the recent epiphany.
