I am a black girl , and this is my second interracial relationship, and I notice that both men always have their hands on my leg, be it driving, sitting, in the movies. I don't want to bring it up, because I don't want my relationship feel like I am comparing him to another lover, or a black man. Can someone please explain?
Also, I get really uncomfortable when people stare at us, I mean it is 2016, this isn't uncommon. However, because of the constant staring and looks we get, I do not show very much affection in public. Also, I grew up in the caribbean and we are not use to having PDA's. He is a really sweet guy, I don't want him to feel like I am rejecting him in public, because he likes showing affection in public.
It is a sign of love, or affection! Simple as that! I'm a white guy who doesn't see color either. He is also telling other guys "your his woman! Back off!" Have pride your man feels that way. If you are not comfortable with public shows of affection, tell him so. Some women, and men just are not into that. But give him something to keep him there or he might be gone. I didn't think "hand on leg" was a racial, or cultural thing. ?
Because it's a sign of affection. If it bothers you, just tell him. He probably thinks you like it.
Dont take this as an offense but i have never seen a hot black person be it guy or girl with an attractive white person, almost every single interacial realtionship i've witnessed happened between an attractive white person and not so attractive black person and this is not even me pretty much everyone i know agrees on this, I don't know why it just happens, i am sure its different somewhere else but this happens to be the case in my situations , which could be the reason why people stare at you, maybe one of you is less attracrive ( it doesn't have to be you ) so they find it weird that you/him went through all the toubles to date each other when looks wise you dont match.
As for touching you... well why wouldn't i want to touch my gf?
I am a white male who has never been in a relationship, so I am as curious as you are. Also if you're not much of a public affection shower it isn't a big deal, just tell him why.
The hand on the leg is just casual affection, very ordinary for couples. Didn't know this had anything to do with race, just how comfortable you are with your partner. As for people looking at you guys, screw them. You don't need approval in love :)
