Is race something you'd consider before dating someone?

And no I don't mean the ethnicity, nor their culture, but their race. Race and culture can be mutually exclusive. Please do not confuse both. Many people seem do this.

  • Obviously I consider it as it's pretty hard to not realize that someone I'm into has completely different features, skin colour, etc. than what's most common in my own race. Before I got with my (Asian) boyfriend, I was honestly more concerned with how surprised my friends would be versus having any issues with it myself. As expected, I did get a fair share of 'OH! ... your boyfriend is Asian? You should've told me!' but I learned to just let it slide. The worst was my own mom asking me if I'm not bothered that (potential) children with him would not be blonde haired/blue-eyed.

    Reactions like that of others make it tougher but I personally never saw race as a straight up deterrent and being with him has made me much better at shrugging off the judgements of others which are probably inevitable anyway, whichever way you go.

  • Not a bit. As a multi-ethnic person, I'm a melting pot, I love a little diversity, and I'm happy to date whoever as long as I'm treated well and the guy is a good person.

  • The race alone? Not that important, however different races have different features (physically) and some of them I'm *usually* not attracted to. But other than that, I don't care about races at all. If I was attracted to the person, the only thing I'd be worried would be their ethnicity/culture.

  • I guess it is for me because initially i'm just the most attracted to super pale white guys, always have been. But if I really got to know someone and liked them then it wouldn't be much of an issue, since knowing someone's personality makes them more attractive to me normally.

  • i think the first thing i notice is a sense of attraction, if it is with a white guy great, if its with a black guy, great too, any other race is fine but i don't think it should be the first thing you look at

  • Well I come from a 99% white country so chances are I will never make friends with a person from another race, let alone date them. With that in mind, I wouldn't date one. I'm attracted to all humans but I would want to be only with my own race.

  • The race itself is of no concern to me unless it's tied to something or a culture I'd rather not be part of or can't due to religious reasons. Otherwise it never crosses my mind.
