See. it 8767 s post like these that remind me why I knew from an early age that the chances of me ending up with a black guy were slim to none. I was made fun of bullied for the majority of the time I was in grade school for being too slim. I was always picked on for my looks. Being in a predominately black school I was that awkward skinny girl who kept her head in the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings books. Who would want to be with someone like that?
What are some of the best sites out there for black women open to interracial dating? Despite the negativity about black women dating out or being “unwanted,” there are men of all races who think we are divine. Let’s focus on where we are wanted! Here are a few we've found from the BB&W archives.
The first guy that ever took interest in me was a white guy in high school. I 8767 ve always grown up dealing with guys who were all about the booty and the miniature waist that can 8767 t fit any organs and the light-skin and the long hair. I was never the type of girl who was into what most kids in my neighborhood were into. And I didn 8767 t want a guy who couldn 8767 t at least appreciate my love of science fiction.
Steve wanted to make a special note of stating that black women are too often unfairly stereotyped about being aggressive or loud. "I don't think it is fair to them. Personally, I've never experienced it. Even when we argue, Tasha doesn't curse or get excited. She's about as soft as a woman can be made."
I started thinking about the media and asking myself what qualities I was actually attracted to in a man, specifically my boyfriend, versus what qualities I'd been taught to find attractive. Part of me used to envy how soft, straight, and blond his hair was. One of my favorite things to do was to play with his hair. He would lie with his head in my lap, and I would run my fingers through the blond strands. It was so effortless to do that, to just run my fingers through his hair. When I did that to my hair, my hand got stuck a quarter of the way through.
I couldn't stop repeating the first part of the Clutch headline over and over again in my head. Nobody cares. Nobody cares.
One n Only When you look at the divorce rates among black couples it 8767 s the highest among any demographic group now look at the divorce rate of BM in general and BM in IR marriages still the highest among any demographic group BUT look at the divorce rate among BW in general and BW in IR marriages it drops significantly for BW in IR marriages. Enough said.

It is our responsibility, however, to be true to ourselves and the ones we love. One response in the comment section on Tiya Miles' piece eloquently sums up what debates about interracial dating often miss:
Generally speaking, it’s not a good idea to get into a deep discussion about politics on a first date, but for some reason, White men will sometimes want to know what you think about certain popular issues concerning African Americans. Don’t take this the wrong way, it’s not that I mind discussing it, but I just feel like these issues shouldn’t be the first things you think of when we go for a first date. So all I remind you of is affirmative action, healthcare, and the Trayvon Martin case? There’s more to me than these Black issues.
