Is race a big factor in a relationship?
What Guys Said 40
It doesn't matter because MY DICK GETS HARD EITHER WAY YAY!!! i1127.photobucket.com/.../...2f51dad-602887537.gif + I might be #shallow but even I can look past someone's skin color ^_^7
Skin color isn't that big of a deal. I don't like people because of their race/nationality; but because of them as a person.12
It is a HUGE factor only if you care about it.
For me, I am only attracted to white women. Maybe I could go for a latino that is more white looking.
I am not against inter-racial couples in any way.
I just am not attracted to any others. not something I control.3
Of course the MHO must be the most hypocrite answer of them all. ''We are all people who cares about skin colour.'' Well guess what, 1st off race is not just skin color. 2nd off each race has its own culture, characteristics and abilities unique to them. In other words YES race play a major factor in a relationship especially when it comes to white people who are being taught to think it is immoral to feel pride for what they are.4
I love women of all races and ethnicities, there's so much beauty in each one :)
Besides it would be hypocritical of me, at least in my eyes, to be like "I only date white/black/Asian/Latina women" when I'm mixed of several different things (Puerto Rican, Cuban, Italian, Chinese, Spanish, and Hebrew).0
Of course race matters. Everything matters!
The reality is, not everyone is attracted to people of different races. I'm a big, bulky white guy, so Asian girls aren't into me. I get tons of interest from Latinas, though. My race has everything to do with who's attracted to me.0
Hasn't been an issue any time in the last ten months. Hasn't even merited discussion. I feel like things such as this can only be a problem if someone involved wants it to be.2
Yes we all do have little choices in our selection for future husband/wife... Ultimately at the end its the person whom we have a compatibility with or whom we fall in love with... Color is not a major factor in a relationship though. We might have a preference for color but again if you don't have the compatibility with the person then it will not work... in case you have a preference then may be try searching for one with whom you have compatibility.0
I am white and I prefer Asian girls. Why? who knows. I like their noses soooo freaking much. Their attitude is less "douchy", less stuck up.
I think most are accepting of who you are and not who you should be, like David Beckham.0
Probably white girls but in saying that there were a few black girls in the past that I have been with and made a tral connection with. I don't think race comes into it. You know when you know.1
It is more about culture, than race.
Every ethnicity / race (especially in America ), has developed its own culture, and day-to-day marriage and how to raise children are HIGHLY based on culture.0
I have dated women several parts of the world. I have learned that race is not and issue. The issue is that people choose to make it an issue.
I hear people say stuff about cultural differences but that really isn't it. Take a Brazilian guy and a Japanese girl and people talk about cultural differences. Take an English guy and a Russian girl and suddenly nobody talks about cultural differences. So I think that this statement is often misused. Those cultural differences can make the relationship interesting.
Another overused one is the "We have to keep the races pure"... Why should we do that? Trust me, we'll live.
Ultimately what is important if the two people involved can live with each other and all the rest of us should just leave them alone.0
Yes, for me it is. I prefer white and East Asian girls for various reasons, both racially and culturally.0
yes. depending on your family's view, it could be a problem. not saying you shouldn't, just that it might be difficult.0
I don't really care about the race
It's rather more interesting to get to know new cultures0
Race doesn't matter to me. It's most about if we can get along and if I find her beautiful.0
It doesn't matter to me but its for sure a big factor in a lot of peoples mind0
It doesn't matter to me. As long as we love each other, nothing else matters.0

I personally think that color shouldn't/doesn't necessarily have a big impact... but there are some instances where "culture" plays a significant role... and in some cases, the different cultural background includes a different color of the skin-- making it seem synonymous or something. But anyways, culture usually has big impact if the two people aren't culturally partial0
The answer lies in researching what goes on when visiting their home life & vice versa, for that's where one will run for advice & comfort when things get rocky with each other. Some families meld well and others are "out there", thinking they are gods and the rest are odd.
Not just race but also research ALL potential land mines ahead that could help destroy your love connection.0
Zero fucks given about race when it comes to who I like. .3.8
Race and ethnicity wouldn't stop me from dating someone.
That said, I'm white, but for some reason I'm not as attracted to white guys as I am to mixed race guys. But that's not to say that I don't like white guys.2
I don't think it matters at all - the only thing that might get into the way sometimes might be a different culture if your partner is from a very different country to yours but even that shouldn't be a big issue if you reall love each other.0
i think that what really matters would be the two persons happy with each other but to each their own.. some people might just prefer to go for similar race than them2
Personally I don't understand how people have the mentality of only going out with their own race. I understand that it might just happen that you usually fall for someone of the same race, but I don't think you should actively seek people only from your race and not even taste the rainbow a little bit. My first real boyfriend was black mixed with something else (can't remember) and my second real boyfriend was white as hell. I've mostly dated (not serious, but casual) guys of a different race. It's not because I actively seek to be with a white guy, but I live in a mainly white community where black guys choose to ignore black girls and only date white girls so I'm kind of forced into interracial dating in a way. It doesn't matter to me. I'll date any race. I have had a crush on almost all races in my lifetime. Personality is what truly matters. I honestly don't see color.3
Honestly, where do you people come from? Are you grown like little hate-filled radishes or something? The race-baiting just doesn't compute.1
Race shouldn't matter
people make things too difficult in this world
Does it even matter? You are going to b dead someday. Just love who you love. No excuses.0
I'm biracial, I'm Puerto Rican and Jamaican race isn't a huge issue for me but I do have a preference. If I could say who I find the most attractive of all races it would probably be blacks, secondly Asians (specifically Japanese) and Native Americans. Every other race is about the same. My boyfriend is black and I find him so beautiful to look at. I love everything from his facial features, to how deep his skin is, I love his beautiful hair, his voice, and how muscular he is so naturally. I just think black people are really beautiful lol. It's okay to have a preference, but I don't think someone should exclusively be into anything. It just filters out so many wonderful people you know? :)0
It's not really about the colour but whether their beliefs and culture clashes with mine. There needs to be a common ground.0
race has never been an issue with me. i don't have a type lol0
Well im German, Lebanese and Mexican. I prefer being with someone within that realm. I wouldn't date a white or black guy.0
I don't really care about race...
It's all the same to me if I love them.0
I prefer to date outside my race, its a preference. People don't respect it, but hey whatcha gonna do.0
Race does matter to some people when it comes to relationships I don't know why people think the way they do but I have seen black women on here say they only will date a white man and want mixed kids and I have seen white women say they only date black men. I have seen black men online talk shit about black women and say they only date white women and I have seen white men talk shit about black women and say they only date white women. In some cases I'll even see white men talk down on white women and say they want a exotic looking mixed girl0
I know it is for a lot of people (though that may just be my area), but it doesn't bother me.0
I think interracial dating is pretty much a norm.1
it doesn't matter to me at all..1
I am White and prefer White men. Preferably WASPs0
