Is it shallow to tell a girl, "I dont date darker skintones"? I understand its ok to have a preference, but to go out of your way to tell people/girls that you only date lighter skinned girls... that's a little much. Girls, how does this make you feel when guys tell you things like this?
Having a preference is fine, but a preference is not the same as exclusivity. Exclusivity is shallow, as it implies anything outside of what you're exclusively dating is less than what you'd go for and unattractive. I have a preference for certain physical features in guys, but that doesn't mean it is all I am limited to. When someone limits themselves to a certain blueprint appearance wise, then yes it becomes shallow.
