Do you have a dating preference?

Do you guys find yourselves seeing your own race as most attractive or another race? Does race/ethnicity matter at all?

  • I live in the USA in Southern California, which is a diverse area ethnically.

    For me it is about culture more than race, so I've been into and dated many ethnicities.

    There is no ethnic group that I would say an absolute "no" to dating; I'm not a stereotyping racist

    • I also live in an ethnically diverse area that doesn't mean that you can't develop preferences. I was mainly curious about how people feel about people of their same ethnic background as opposed to another background.

    • You will be surprised how often people see someone if said ethnicity, and make sweeping generating statements about that person's personality and character.

      As a black American that has lived in the USA his whole life, I can personally tell u this has happened to me before. Some ponder me and think of every stereotype the media portrays about black men, before even getting to know me for even a few minutes!

    • Well as an afro- Latina I definitely know what your talking about. When it comes to dating, those are clearly the people to stay away from. Too bad it isn't possible to stay away from these people for daily living purposes.

  • I'm biracial but I would honestly date any race/ethnicity. Because anyone from any ethnicity can be attractive in my eyes. However, I'm still more attracted to white guys for example than other races. But I'd still date someone no matter their race.

  • It really depends, cuz every race is different. For example, Korean girls tend to have eyes, and small faces with pronounced jawlines. White girls are normally the stereotype, and everything just depends on preference.

  • I think it definitely matters even though it's taboo to say so. It's hard to be with people who don't share your culture especially if you are deeply engrained in your own.

    Personally I don't mind dating most races but some I'm not attracted to as much overall. I don't see myself having to be with someone of my ethnicity.

  • Preference comes down to personality for me. A physical appearance limits too much, and may change over time anyway. Racial preference is out the window, so much as that they can internally keep up.

  • Being a biracial product, I am not a very choosy person. I've dated most of the various races. In the end, it's what the heart desires, and what her life goals are. There are different cultures in everyone to explore.
    I'm not dark like an African, nor as pale as a Caucasian. I'm the best of both worlds~

  • I find my own race attractive because of the similar upbringing can be relatable and possibly more likely to share the same views because of it, but when it comes down to it, I actually haven't dated someone the same race as my own.

  • I'm a white guy, but I've never been able to attract white girls, so I've just become more interested in Asian and Indian girls, since they give me the time of day.

    • Not sure why but that was very funny.

    • Show All
    • Why do you think that they don't want you and why are the Asian girls interested in you?

    • I never could figure it out.

  • Asian-American women. All 3 exes have been Asian-American. I am a tall white man for comparison.

  • Everyone is implicitly racist, whether they like to admit it or not. We all have a dating preference, and it isn't wrong to have one. Race is tied to culture and success. That is why African Americans are generally the least preferred race and Caucasians are generally the most preferred in the US of A. African Americans have a culture that is much different than the American societal norm (the norm being Caucasian), and African Americans are generally the least successful. I don't like the facts, myself, but these are the sad facts. There are some people who do prefer African American men and Asian men though, even though they are the least preferred nationally. This is very likely to someone having a fascination with black culture (you might notice that a white or Asian girl assimilated into African American culture from her youth might prefer African American men).

    • I'm sorry but having a dating preference is NOT racist. You're not discriminating a "race" by preferring a type of "culture" that is relative to some communities.

      Saying African Americans are least preferred is absolutely bs. That's completely relative to each individual. If you are uncomfortable with someone else's culture, it's OKAY. As long as you respect it.

      Not only cultural background but simple physical traits. The person I'm dating has blue eyes because I don't and 1) it's an attractive trait to me 2) i don't have that trait and 3) i probably unconsciously wish that trait to pass onto my children.

      Having a dating preference is NOT. Something that is nationally preferred or such. It's very VERY individual. You wanna stick with white chicks? Because you have the same beliefs and culture and habits. If i date an Asian man, perhaps I'd be attracted to traits that are uncommon in my life or culturally interesting, compared to mine.

      Anyway. Rant done.

    • CULTURE is what matters in dating, not race.

      That's the issue with America in terms of the issue of race.

      We stereotype one's cultural aspects WAY too much based on race.

      It's so lazy to pre-emptively judge someone's morale and personality makeup based on how someone looks.

    • @TheOnlyAriii You have twisted logic. Fine, perhaps I am racist for simply stating a statistical fact and not making an assumption about a group of people. You don't read definitions right. There are 2 parts to the definition. It is not one *and* the other. It is one *or* the other.

      Again I direct you to point #3 in the webster dictionary. 3. "racial prejudice or discrimination".
      And I direct you to the definition of "prejudice": "preconceived judgment or opinion". By assuming that a black person is of a specific culture, are you not making a preconceived judgement or opinion about someone's race? Based on the definitions I gave you is that not racist? If racism is making a racial preconceived judgement or opinion about someone, again I point to the definitions, and you prefer one race over another because of your preconceived judgment or opinions of the two races, is that not racism.

      Be logical. Read the definitions. Definitions are definitions.

  • I've dated many different races but my preferance is anything but white girls.

  • I do tend to mostly date white girls. I've had sex with a couple chinese girls. Once I dated a black girl, and she was a lot of fun. Sex with her was good.
    It's not a matter of attraction so much as it is the community. The vast majority of people are white so that's who I meet. It's not a matter of attraction, its simply just access.
    I know most the females think men from India are creeps. Statisticly speaking, men from India have the smallest penises in the world. Don't believe me? google it!

    • You know you just made a racist comment right?

    • @Nicholashq The small penises is just a fact. 5 inches is small. Smallest average size in the world.
      Most of the women do feel that way out here. (Seattle)
