I don't care about skin colour and there are millions of beautiful dark skinned girls, but the type of face I like most is just less common with black girls. that's just personal taste.
I also think that it's normal to be more attracted to the race you grew up and see every day.0
Dark skinned girls are sooo underrated. Most of them are even more beautiful than lighter skinned girls, especially when she excepts her complexion and gorgeous curly hair.
Strong willed dark skinned girls, who don't want to mold themselves in this manipulating society is the sexiest.
In the end of the day, a confident girl is the most beautiful – no matter what skin color.163
She doesn't even look dark skinned... she's pretty, but she definitely isn't dark skinned. At least not to me anyway. I think she's more of a lighter brown, but not full on light skinned girl. Here's what I consider dark skinned.
That girl blows me out of the water so I don't know why guys see it as an issue. That isn't to hate on myself (I love myself) but she's clearly a perfect 10.30
What Girls & Guys Said
That girl is bomb! ;-)
I'm into dark skinned women, and there are plenty that are! Some cultures do have a colorism aspect where "lighter is better", but those people are missing out. :-P70
The dark skin thing looks to me to be about racial elitism in black people, the lighter you are the better looking you are and the darker you are the more standard African you look which is apparently bad. The girl in the picture made me pause for a minute, I said to myself "GAHD DAYUM!"21
i love all kinds of girls! im brown myself i have fallen for a few light skinned girls, i dont actually like the brown ones much which some people think is odd but there was this one dark skinned girl... ah if only she felt the way i did she was so amazing in mind and body and spirit
definitely have not been attracted to anyone more physically than her =)0
That girl is hot!
And yeah guys are ridiculous
Most dudes who say that shit, have zero experience dating black girls40
I think all colours are beautiful... the only thing I don't find beautiful is when white people (myself included) get tans from the sun because let's face it cancer isn't sexy.20
that's not true I like light, medium and dark tones
what I can't stand is when bitches tan so much that they look orange
like just stay your natural color ffs50
Off topic, I'm obsessed with Justine. The girl is perfect... HOW?31
A lot of guys that say that they don't like dark skinned girls where I live are dark skinned. The light skinned guys where I live like dark skinned girls. Opposites seem to attract out here.10
What does it matter. There are better men that do like dark skin.21
Well it depends, some guys have told me they just like the colour white more... they buy more white shirts than black. It's not the race always
when I see a nice pair of white shoes... I sometimes can't stop looking... but if I see black shoes I think it's dull because of the colour
Like look at her armpits, it's got like a butthole colour. But I like black girls so I'm not one of those guys112
It's cultural or they are heavily influenced by their environment through media and upbringing. No way around it.20
Because dark skin is unattractive, just like very pale skin is unattractive. It's the same thing, on opposite ends of the spectrum. That girl is only pretty in that picture because she is wearing a shit load of makeup. She could be going to a wedding or something. The picture itself looks fake as well. A large part of my job requires editing pics in photoshop and I can tell a touched up picture when I see it. When you only look pretty when you are heavily dolled up in fake pictures, you are not pretty. And this being the best example you could find to show that dark-skinned girls are attractive, so what does that say? It's a tragedy that people are unattractive because of things they can't control but that's just how it is.8
She pretty, we love that smile :3 and so confident that purple hair nailed it20
It's just a personal preference. It's got nothing to do with your skin. Don't worry about it.0
Don't put words in my mouth.
The only reason I don't date black women is because I don't want to get cut by her family and friends or be blamed for all their problems.1
if you really want to show them dark skinned girls, dont show a girl with dyed hair, drawn eyebrows, fake lashes... etc
a real face would be better5
Well just to make an example of how skin color matters would you date a man who turned orange by eating too many carrots.2
Bc they're idiots and she's adorbez!50
I don't know anyone that ayas that but if they dont they probably don't even like girls. I like all types girls. Like ice cream With every flavour.2
It's about genetics. It's impossible to explain why because it's a subconscious thing. You wouldn't understand unless you were a guy.11

TL;DR; Short answer: It's a subconscious thing, much similiar to why people like hair color or eye color.
Some people like blonde, some people like brunette, some people like black hair. It's not racist to have types and I don't think I need to feel guilty about it either. People should be able to have a say in what they like and don't like and not force matches. My "type" tends to be more towards white people. I can't help it. It isn't my intention, but it is just what I find more attractive. Just as my preference tends to be towards white people, there are people who have preference towards Asian, towards black, towards latino, whatever. It's just a matter of perception.
On a subconsious level these 'types' could've been caused by anything from how the person grew up, to how societial pressures influenced them, to natural born genetics, to being attracted by a "hey, that person looks me, let's group together" concept, and so forth.
If you want to go into theories about what shapes attractivity, there was one psychologist who proposed that humans find what their attractive types are based on their parents. Like if you are a guy and your mother was blonde, you will be naturally attracted to blonde people more. If this theory has any scientific backing, then the reason people have skin preferences is because of their parent's skin color. Again, this is just some theory not fact.
All in all though, I don't think skin color plays a decisive role in decisions for what is attractive or not. While my type is white people, I still find the person attractive, black skin color or not. Again, it is like hair color (just maybe more important than hair color to some). While I may like black hair or blonde, if the person is a red head, I'm not going to automatically say they are ugly. This person in the picture has a great face which makes me consider her to be beautiful despite what I like more and whatnot.
Hope this cleared up some confusion and hopefully I didn't make you more confused xD
If you have any questions, just ask.
I'm trying to understand but I just can't wrap my head around preferring a certain skin tone. I'm genuinely not trying to be close minded. I guess I'm just not one to use skin color as a deciding factor in who I'm attracted to. To each his own.
I'm not trying to say you are being close minded, nor am I trying to be close minded myself. Skin color is not something I definitely use as a deciding factor. If someone is black, it does not mean I won't date them. It just means I have a less chance of being attracted to them which gives a less chance of me dating them. I don't really know how else to explain it. Sorry 😅
It really is all just subconscious stuff.
I'll agree it's a subconscious thing but it's not the same thing as liking a brunette or a blonde. If you say you prefer brunettes it doesn't mean you won't date blondes nor does it mean that the chances of you dating a brunette increases or not; it just means you have a thing for brunettes. The truth is, it's just a subconscious thing because we have grown up in a racist world so why wouldn't we be racist subconsciously? Doesn't really make us bad, just victims to a bad world. This doesn't make it right though.
That theory sounds like an offshoot of some Freudian Psychology of the Oedipus Complex. Just to put this out there though. I don't think it's true because non-white races disproportionately tend to find white's more attractive than their own race and it wouldn't explain why many dark haired men go for blondes.
