Interracial Dating

How do you feel about interracial dating?

I know I have the experiences when seeing a good looking black man with a white woman it does tend to make me feel uneasy. And most of my girlfirends feel the same way. I feel jilted in a way. Like what was wrong with dating a sister. And I'll admit...when he's not so good looking I have no thoughts. Shallow? Perhaps...but unfortunately we live in a shallow world....does that make it right or wrong...there is no right or wrong in this I think.....it's just how one feels about the situation....I really think we aren't, can't, won't look beyond race in this ...that perhaps it's just that connection we get when we like someone of the same race.

I see more and more black women dating outside their race. And I have yet to formulate any thoughts about it. I guess because even I have considered it. Now it's not that I don't want a black man...it's just that I'm having trouble finding (or he's having trouble finding me) a black man that I can connect with.

It is time to step out of the box and try something new and different?
