Personally... it's not at all a race thing with me. There ARE skin tones that I seem to naturally find more appealing... much the same as color of eyes, hair, body type, etc. To me... it's a package deal. Any one thing isn't a deal breaker for sure... regardless of what it is (unless your personality sucks... then that person can hit the bricks!).
If you're a darker complected woman... I wouldn't let that bother you. I have several friends who really do believe that saying "the darker the berry, the sweeter the juice"... and the darker the woman the sexier they find them! So no worries... it's not keeping you from getting a man.
The colour of your skin should never reflect on someones physical attractiveness! I am sure it is an issue for some people but for many it isn't. Focus on the guys that are attracted to you, not the ones that arn't :P. I would deffinitly not be turned off by a darker girl!
I def have racial preference and I actually generally turned off by a girl being to white. my general rule is the darker the better. some guys are turned off black girls but it def not the case with everyone, some guys don't generally find black girls attractive at all
Most of the guys I know are obsessed with dark chicks-maybe cause they're really pale so it's exotic to them,but yeah,guys love dark girls.Also as a straight girl I would only go gay for black chicks-Scary Spice in ''if you wanna be my lover'' was my first girl crush,and now I'm sort of in love with Shingai Shoniwa.
i get turned on or off depending on the personality and style and how they carry themselves, like I used to have a crush on my art teacher he was african american and omg he was so hot all the girls of all skin colors had a crush on him because he was very intelligent and artsy and mature and had a charm about himself, he didn't have an accent or anything nor acted gangster, he dressed up like he was from GQ magazine and he was just mad hot ahhh haha
so no skin color alone doesn't determine attractiveness, it really comes down to how to you carry yourself and your overall persona and style as well, I know tons of white guys who are obsessed with rihanna and beyonce and I watch gossip girl and the new character Raina played by tika sumpter is very gorgeous. I personally really love and admire tyra banks she's so chic and just inspiring.
