Interracial dating white guy
I've mostly dated Haitian, Haitian American and African American males.I can't say that I've been against interracial dating but it just never seemed like an option for me.For various reasons, I've always thought dating interracially would be even more complicated.I went on my first date with a caucasian gentleman a few days ago.At the end of the day, I'm hoping that my family, my friends, my community are cheering me on to experience happiness with a man who treats me right and challenges me to be the best me, regardless of race.Or should I continue to hold out for a "perfect" Black man, when some of them have clearly gotten the memo years ago that they can date whoever they want? For now I'm enjoying getting to know Irish Jackson.These are generalizations, of course, but they are attitudes that I've personally encountered.Skepticism towards black men/white women relationships is a longstanding and well-documented part of our cultural fabric in America. I'm not a "black man" who "dates white women." I'm a person.
There's a sense of "betraying the race" that pervades my thinking in consideration of dating outside of my race.
These are women still holding out for the "perfect" Black man.
We grew up learning how to dress ourselves, cook and clean to please a Black man.
The biggest piece of chicken was set aside to feed our brown skin fathers.
Any fairytale ideas we had swimming through our minds of a man sweeping us off our feet, included characters of tall, strong Black men whose skin resembled that of our fathers.
Dating can be a strange phenomenon for me sometimes.
