Is interracial dating common where you live?

I ask this because a few days ago there was a question about what the interracial couple make up was mostly and when I went to answer I realized, back home in Cleveland there were so many types of interracial couples you didn't even notice them at that point (Not saying it's a huge deal and should be noticeable) BUT- here where I live now... I've seen two interracial couples. Literally in the whole area, I get its a small town but it's just crazy to go from one setting to another like this lol. I will say that there is a lot of racism here but not aggressive racism.

Long story short, do you happen to notice more or less mixed race couples in your city-town-area?

    I've dated whites and mulattoes being an Asian guy here.

    i get looks sometimes but its mainly curiosity and not a look of disgust.

  • I'm sure there is I don't notice just because I see 2 people are in a relationship I don't notice skin color, and I'm sure some people have issues with it but I don't care if doesn't affect you in anyway so why care. (general statement not directed at anyone ).

    • Yeah I said it shouldn't be noticeable, in parentheses. I was asking because some towns are still in 1940. And I didn't witness that until I moved, because I am from a major city In the north. That's why I asked the question, appreciate your outlook though.

  • Not really, no.
    In Brussels there are quite large Moroccan , Turkish and Congolese communities.
    (Moroccans are the largest group)

    -many Congolese stay in Matonge quarter
    -many Turkish stay in Schaerbeeck (some Sikhs too there)
    -A group of Roms from Hungaria, Romania and Bulgaria came after 1990.
    -Moroccans are a bit more all over the town in the less expensive neighborhoods.

    Of course, they'll meet in public schools (some HS have a high % of immigrants and a low % of local pupils)
    On the Brussels subway I hear many languages I can't even identify approximatively.
    The Brussels Midi market on Sunday is like a trip to another continent.

    Then there are people from 29 or so E. U. nationalities (diplomatic personnel). They run their own schools.

    There's not really a melting pot mix in Belgium: most stay with their own group, their own language. I don't see masses of interracial couples.
    Don't ask me about the night life.

  • I've seen them in Boston but in my small town which is super white you don't see it very much. I'm sure you would if there was more diversity though.

  • It's not that common here because most people are white. Big difference between this small town and the city.

  • When i was in Munich I would occasionally see a inter-racial couple, there are quite a few in Germany however I haven't paid much notice because I see them as any other couple.
    In Delhi it's too rare cause there are not many races living in India but sure once in a while I get to see some

  • Where I live there are a lot of foreigners, but still you rarely see interracial couples. It has nothing to do with racism. It's a cultural thing - most people don't want to mess with other cultures; you'll befriend them just fine, but being a part of their family is often asking for trouble.

    Oh, and I live in Europe by the way. So colored = foreigner, basically :)

  • Here in Glasgow, Scotland, I only see one of them in some occasions. Most people here seem to date within their races, including the minorities here.

  • Its very common amongst people my age in my area because i live in a predominantly white environment so there aren't many attractive black girls compared to the white girls

    • Yeah, it was like that in some parts of my city too.

    • These couples don't seem to last the distance, the ones that do are awesome but the ones that don't should of been more damn responsible!

  • Here in Thailand, oh hell yes. Tons of white guys-thai skanks running around. Some of the girls are so disgustingly clingy to the guys, who sometimes are like as old as their grandfathers.

  • Not really but that's more because 90% of the people here are white. You do see truly white girls with Moroccan and Turkish guys though.

  • In my county, yes... yes it is. Lots of white girls date black guys. They usually end up supporting their boyfriends. Its not pretty. I think its a pretty localized thing in TN though. I haven't seen it in other counties. Just mine.
