  • I'm Asian, and up until this past summer, I've only been attracted to Asian guys. After breaking up with my bf and started dating as someone single again, I decided to try dating outside my race, and I find that there are its pros and cons. Just to put it out there, most of my dates have been with guys from tinder lately. There are its pros and cons. My mom actually wants me to try dating and, eventually, marry a non-asian man while my dad is more traditional and wants me to marry someone chinese. but in the end I believe that as long as they like him and see that he is a good man, then the race won't matter.

    • What races have the guys from tinder been?

    • Depends on where I am. When I was in a big city for summer, it was a good mix of all races (white, black, Asian, Indian/Pakistani, Hispanic) and socioeconomic backgrounds, so tinder was a lot of fun. But in my college town, it's mainly white college guys who aren't as cultured or interesting to me.

  • Yup, definitely would, have, and am dating interracially. My ex was Fijian and my current boyfriend is Chinese.

    My parents, namely my mom, do care. She says it's nothing against him, more than he's not religious and in her opinion, since we're dating that by default means he's potential for marriage, and should that be the case we won't be able to get married in the church.

    Totally crazy if you ask me, but yeah she definitely makes it difficult to bring him to my place and bugs me when I spend too much time with him. Which is fine though, I've put up with it for 10 months and don't plan on stopping anytime soon. :)

    • I like that mindset! yeah religion does start to way a lot in relationships but I don't think it should interfere, If I have to get married in 2 places then so be it haha

    • yeah agreed. Like my boyfriend is not practicing antyhing, though I don't see why that should be an issue. Unbeknownst to my mom but I don't really consider myself as religious either.

      I don't see why it's so crucial that he be practicing the same religion as me... he still shares the same morals, values, as well as beliefs as me about life in general so the fact that he lacks the title of belonging to a certain religion is not a concern.

  • Yes, doesn't matter what race as long as I'm attracted to him and no my parents won't care as long as he isn't a bad guy. By bad guy I mean, has NO JOB and isn't looking, abusive, rude, racist, lacks hygiene, bad manners, etc. Either way I wouldn't even try to get a guy like that so they don't worry about me.

    • I didn't mean it as a bad thing lol just think of it as an encouraging comment :)

    • Yeah I know :D

  • yep! I like mixed guys the most but as far as race I really don't care as long as we have good chemistry. My family do not care because we are all mixed all the way down to my great grandparents. My family reunion is a culture fair. But my god parents are a different story. My god father made me promise not to date Chinese guys. Other than that I'm mixed and I don't mind mixing more lol. :)

  • I don't rule it out. I have to say I'm not usually attracted to guys of a different race (I. e not white) just because of personal preference, not racism or anything. Parents wouldn't really care (Dad would be the biggest problem though), although I worry that my one ser of grandparents would be accidentally racist sometimes! I'd go out with anyone of a different race, as long as they weren't extremist religious people that I would have to convert to be with.

  • I would definitely date interracially. To me, it doesn't matter what race, as long as I am attracted to them and they are what I would consider boyfriend material. My parents thankfully don't care. I'm hispanic btw.

    • Cool! Everyone has their preferences!

    • Exactly why this is a great question. Every body a has a right to like what they like and that's okay

  • ANY race, I have always dated outside of my race, I'm not sure why. Just being surrounded by a different culture fascinates me I guess. I am Asian and I have dated white guys, black guys, Hispanic guys, middle eastern guys and mixed breeds. My parents don't care, as long as he treats me right and I am happy with him.

    • Lol I know... I've talked to you before richie haha

  • I don't care about race so yes of course. This is 2014 so no my parents wouldn't care. My grandma would, but not my parents. She is kinda racists, whitout really knowing, it's kinds cute. We where on a trip to a bigger city, and she kept talking about: "All those black people everywhere.."

      That's actually true, that's why a lot of filipinos are confused for hispanic/latin sometimes

  • Yea my mom doesn't care but I feel like my dad wants me to be with a black guy. I also feel like when it comes to my family it's not normal to date someone non black so you get more attention or positive comments on your kids if their mixed (that's mostly the black women giving those comments in my family) It also seems like my dad doesn't like Hispanic guys I don't know why though.

    • Haha I understand

  • If I like the guy, maybe. No barriers to entry, I reckon. I could like a white guy as well as I could like a black guy, an Asian guy or a mestizo. My parent's don't care.

  • First and foremost, I'm the person dating the girl, why would my parents EVEN think they have a say on who I should date and who I shouldn't? I date interracial and that's ALL I date. Skin colour, type, blood type all that bullcrap doesn't matter one bit to me. I could careless. I'm out for my happiness and my girls, my parents had their chance, this is my chance. I've dated many but I do chase South Americanas, Black, Asian, Middle Eastern, White, Eastern Europeans, Mediterranean or hybrids of any combinations, also in no particular order. If I think a girl looks good then I'm going to approach and flirt.

    • Well said! People to many limitations on race and color, I'm glad to see people are opening up to the idea more and more

    • @Asker - Dating is already hard in finding a great quality girl why would I want to limit my search? That's what I say. Plus I've learned a LOT of things along the way from dating many cultures, ideas, beliefs and lifestyles, religions so I think it's great.

  • well i've never had a black girlfriend... because i was never attracted to black girls, and still am not. I've dated Latina ^^... white and asian... and a mix obviously.

    Im white. And i don't really care what my parents think, im smart enough to know what im doing anyway.

    Its important to be careful thought with interracial dating. You got the white guys with that "asian fetish or yellow fever" and those black guys with their white woman fetish or as they say "snow bunnies or snow flakes." -_- any guy that is like one of those two is a douche and should be avoided at all costs.

  • I would date interracially because humans are humans and love knows no boundaries. Any race a beautiful woman with an amazing personality is a beautiful woman with an amazing personality regardless of race.

    My Father is a racist and will care, but he abandoned me at the age of three to start a new life and a new family, so he goes no say in my life and my Mother says a good woman is a good woman regardless of race. I agree.
