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.
Is race something you'd consider before dating someone?

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.1
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.1
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.1
If s/he's hot, s/he's hot. The color or nationality won't change anything.1
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.1
no, considering i'm from a place with mostly black people... i know a couple of Portuguese guys but they tend to stick with their own1
I don't think so, since I am dating someone of another race and I didn't give much thought to it before jumping in lol1
Um well that is not what I thought about before I started dating my black boyfriend... It was more like is he an ass or a nice guy?1
My mom is a racist bitch so anybody who isn't white, she hates.
I just don't give a shit. White, black, brown, whatever as long as we're happy2
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 at1
Yes because i simply feel more attracted to white guy´s. Not that i wouldn´t date someone of another race but how should i put it... i like what i like.1
To a very very small degree. Different races have different cultures and different levels of kinks.1
I'm dating a white guy. I'm black/white hispanic. I don't care about the color of his skin. I care about his personality and if we are compatible or not.0
you take someone as they are1
For me no. I like diversity1
not really but in general i'm not attracted to arabic and black guy so i tend to avoid them0
More cultural background then race1
No, I wouldn't. If I'm not open minded that way, I wouldn't expect someone else to be open minded for me anyway.1
No race means nothing to go against what you feel.1

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.2
Yeah I only tend to find white girls attractive, I don't feel any attraction at all towards girls of any other race.2
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.1
Yes but not in relation to skin color but in relation to difference in cultures.1
i feel you can not pick the person you love all you know is you love them2
Nope, I consider hotness and sexiness (the two aren't the same for me), then similarities.
We have to like the same things and get along well.1
Not at all.1
I do not go outside my race.1
Nahh, if I like you then that's all that matters.1
I truly don't care1
Never had a problem with race, will date who I feel like dating Black, White, Asian or Other.1
I do not like white women.1
I dont date out of my race.0
Not because of any discrimination. My body just isn't attracted to every race.0
Nice to see all the hitlers here...1
