I’ve never made much of the fact that I’m an equal opportunity dater; that is; I date men of all races and ethnicities. This isn’t lip service. This is my reality.
I’ve had this blog for less than 2 years. In that time, I’ve written about a lot of dates, a lot of guys. I’m a white girl, and so I guess some of my readers have been assuming that all of my dates are white, too. That would be an incorrect assumption. I frequently date white guys, yes. But not exclusively.
What I don’t do is mention, here on the blog, that the man I’m dating happens to be black, or asian, or whatever. Because, frankly, I don’t think race is the most useful way to categorize and define people. And when I’m thinking of a guy, I tend to think of him as shy or tall or outgoing or arrogant. Not black or white.
Anyway, all that said, I know that I’m not the only person who frequently dates people of other races/backgrounds. But I also know there are plenty of people who don’t. Won’t. And I figure people have the right to do what they want to do. I’m not judging.
I am, as always, curious.
So let’s take a poll (and it will be, as always, unscientific, as my readers are not representative of the general population).
Now, I know this is a complicated issue. It’s not black and white, so to speak. But let’s see if we can talk about this like adults.
