Would you date interracially?

i find it hard to look at some girl (arab girls especially) and think of them as partners, and i mean not the girl herself, she might be beautiful, nice and great, but her parents and aquaitences might not deem me as a good pick for their daughter or hate me for being jewish and even might threaten me... anyone else has that feeling?

  • I am currently dating a guy who's not white, so a different race.
    His family seems cool with my being white. My family, mother specifically, doesn't seem to feel the same. Saying that she can't believe that I'd even think of dating someone who's not Catholic, or asking if I'm not bothered by the fact that potential children in the future won't be blonde haired, blue-eyed. (He's Asian.)

    I say whatever; I'm the one in the relationship, not my family. I'm not going to choose who I marry/have kids with based off of what kind of children I hope to have with him. As long as they're happy and healthy, that's what matters most, in addition to my getting along with the guy in question, of course.

  • I wouldn't refuse to date someone simply because of race. That being said, my preferences still apply and physical attraction is still important to me (along with emotional attraction, naturally).

    While my type tends to fall upon my own race more, I wouldn't exclude people outside of my race from being my type.

    I would suggest, in your case, that you date the girl for the girl she is. Rather, worry about the family later. You are dating her-- not her family.

    That being said, she may throw in rejection later on if she decides to pick family over you... But what if her family isn't like that? What if she was your life's best opportunity?
    The point is, the avoid regrets and live life to the fullest, I would go after the girl.

  • I know what you mean. And I don't think you are wrong.
    You're not rejecting her because she's Arab, you just think you couldn't date her because she's from a different culture. And that is a problem sometimes. You're just trying to avoid these issues.
    It doesn't mean you're racist.

    To answer your question, yes I would date interracially. The only concern I have is if his family didn't accept me or treated me badly.
    That would ruin the relationship.

  • Hmm, I think it's not that simple and that you're asking two different things.
    I would date interracially, but I wouldn't easily date arabian and indian people mainly due to their culture. You see what I mean?
    I am not a racist, but I have no wish of opening the Pandora box. And you being Jewish or someone having difficulties in accepting that is not a racial thing either.

  • I'd date interracially. You just have to be comfortable about their different cultures/ways of life. I guess it's natural to be uncomfortable around something you are unfamiliar with, but it's not necessarily racist unless you judge it.

  • I almost exclusively date interracially, and though meeting family can be daunting it usually isn't as bad as you think it will be. Of course. it depends on your SO's family and your behavior though.

  • I think I would be more confortable dating a fellow Arab and I am usually unconsciously almost exclusively crushing on them BUT I am absolutely open to date outside of my ethnicity.

  • I would be willing to. As far as her family accepting me or not, that's not something I can control or do anything about. Nor can her family do anything about us being in love. A family hating me for no good reason won't make for a good family future.

  • Of course I would I mean I have my own preferences but I am more then open to being with all races, in my opinion you only limit yourself and your chance at happiness by stick to only one race, you'd miss out on being with and meeting great people and you'd miss out on the learning portion of getting to know and understand their cultures and traditions. Plus said things can also be seen as tests as if you really cared about the girl or guy you wouldn't let cultural difficulties get in the way.

  • I'm not interested in girls outside of my race but I've thought about what it would be like. There's no way a girls family would be happy with her showing up at the house with a white guy in tow. Everybody hates white people and just never admit it. Fuck that for a laugh, buncha clowns staring around the room awkwardly coz your there. Give you the creeps.

  • I'd love to date interracially, I've seriously dated Asian girls most my life and a change would be nice. I try to look at people individually but I cannot deny the fact that different races and ethnicities do have different cultures which I love. I have dated interracially but it never got serious.

  • I personally prefer interracial so long as the woman is light skinned.
    White girls are adopting a ghetto attitude I just can't stand.

    You do you though. Don't let anyone call you racist or bigoted for being with who you choose to be.

  • I've dated a lot of women from 'many races' and probably pissed off more people because of it but I don't care. I love all women of all races. I don't see how or why some people discriminate but to each their own I guess.

    Plus my dick don't discriminate between the pale skin to dark skin spectrum.

  • I have a girlfriend but if it ever came to that, then I would happily date another race. The perfect girl for any guy comes in all packages and colors.

  • I agree completely.
    However I've dated interracial, and it's wonderful.
    You don't just get do discover things about another person but a whole other culture. I've never once been introduced to their family, and I suspect it's because of race (could be in my head). On the flip side, when my dumb family finds out I'm dating out side my race they ALWAYS find a way to make it at least a little uncomfortable. My personal favorite always starts the same way "So, where's Megan from?" "Kansas City" "No I mean where is she FROM?" "...*sigh&eyeroll* Kansas City" "...*longsilence*...*looks at feet*... Kansas or Missouri?"
