Something New

I've dated other races than my own before but I'm not really attracted to that anymore. Lately I've been wanting Asian men. I always thought they were attractive but they have great personalities; they seem funny, talented, down to earth and smart, and did I mention they are really attractive.

What is it about interracial relationships attracts you? Is it the sense of 'taboo'? If so, may I ask the region you live in? I'm curious to know as I find that interracial relationships are no longer as 'taboo' as it once was.

I was stationed in Georgia and I had an interracial relationship at the time and a lot of it had to do with a heightened sense of arousal regarding the taboo aspect of it, but that never overtook the genuine aspect that I really cared about her.

In my humble opinion, I think it's great if you find someone outside your race, but to look for it as a prerequisite I feel is only limiting you. Love is love, and love knows no boundaries. I hope this helps, and get on with your search for Asian men, you must fulfill your curiosity before you settle down.

Oh I never thought of it as taboo, never thought dating someone that wasn't my race evoked danger or anything like that. I guess I was a little too vague in my story when I'm attracted to a man I'm attracted to a man no matter that of race. Just lately I've been wanting to be with (not just romantically) Asian men but I guess I was unsure if they dated other races
