  • Yes, because either a person is the same ethnicity with you or not does not change the fact that s/he is another human being; thus, having both good and bad characteristic in them.

    I am an Asian in a relationship with a European and everything goes just the same as if we dated someone from our respective ethnicities or countries.

    However intercultural and international relationships can be more difficult to handle if you're going to be serious like getting married. Getting married with a person from different country is administratively complicated, not to count the technical matters of two families living in different countries, financing the whole marriage/wedding things, etc.. IF the marriage doesn't work, the divorce would also be a pain in the ass, especially if there are children involved.

    So, I'm totally in for it but one really should proceed with cautions.

  • First off, I am black, and below you will find my viewpoints:

    -Love has no color. If you want to date someone of a different race, that is totally fine!

    ___________

    However, you have to ask yourself, is it for the right reasons? In the black community, there is a lot of self-hatred, for example. A lot of black people are starting to date interacially, because they want to produce non-black babies or they have given up on the opposite gender. See the following videos for examples of what I mean:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=se0mrRhcA74https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJbuQRJBqsIhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZ_IaibrH6Q

    And then, on TV, they are glorifying interacial couples, so it makes them seem much more appealing than dating within your race.

    If you are dating outside your race because you have "given up" on your race or you want your babies to look "beautiful", then you are WRONG, and I don't support that.
    ___________

    Now, if you date interacially because you just randomly met someone who is of a different race and you fell for them, I totally support that.
    ___________

    Personally, I don't really date interacially. I tried it. I'm not against it. I would totally do it again. Yet, I want to date someone who has similar tastes to me.

    Most women of other races don't understand what it means to be black, or they don't understand black music, or black TV shows, or black culture. So, when I try to talk to them about it, there is a disconnect there. I want to date someone who understands those kinds of things and gets what I'm talking about.

    Now, don't get me wrong - I have dated interacially and met women who get the black culture and it makes it easier to talk to them, but not all do. The only type of person who would understand what it means to be black is a black woman. It is for that reason I prefer black women, but I am still open to dating other races.

  • Out of so mamy people on POF, the one girl that really clicked with me was black. A shame so many girls said "no black guys" cause for me Id reject them as well just for saying that. I still would talk to her to this day if she messaged me. But I deleted kik.

  • I only date girls of different races. It's not that I think there is anything noble about it, it's just that I am tired of girls of my own race. It's more exciting and interesting to try something different. In spite of the politically correct claptrap there ARE differences between races. The cultures are different, and obviously there are physical differences, that's how race is defined. To me that is what makes it exciting. Call it kinky.

  • I've been in 2 of them already.

    Look if you like a girl and she's not race date her, if you like a girl and she is part of you race date her.

    At the end of the day it's whether you like someone or not as an individual that matters not what colour they are.

  • It's a good experience to get to know different cultures around the world and become more open minded. In fact, I'd prefer an interracial relationship because I have bad memories of my country of birth and I wouldn't want to date someone from there. Interracial relationships can be difficult due to cultural differences, but if both partners try to solve these issues it wouldn't be a big bump in the road.

  • Were I single, and I had a chance with a woman of color that I liked, I'd have taken that chance. That said, the opportunity never arose.

    I see interracial couples in the same light as any other marginalized couple: if they are attacked for their love, then they must be defended. Otherwise, I see them in the same light as any other couple.

  • All of my relationships were interracial. I have no problem with them but a lot of people do, and being harassed is common. Funny thing is, we can be different races, but people only care if you have vastly different skin colors

  • My view is that interracial relationships are wrong on every possible level. They will lead to the extinction of my race through miscegenation, which will plunge the planet into a dark age of decline back to the Stone Age.

  • dont mind it , however you must be careful there if you do end up dating someone from another color, race or culture in my honest opinion you should focus on finding someone you truly want so it ends in marriage because a lot of people wouldn't want to date a person who dated interracially.

    So basically do it if you want but make sure you marry that person cause finding someone from your own background will be harder if you break up with your lover.

  • If it makes the couple happy then it's great. The point is to find a partner you feel comfortable with. And they feel the same about you. The rest is none of our business.
