Would you date someone outside of your own race?

If you were single, would you date someone outside of your race. Is this your own personal preference or would it be based off of other people's influence/judgement?
IMO, I look at the person for themselves and not for their race. Just thought I ask to get other women opinion on the subject.

  • If they're smart, very funny, reasonably attractive to me and we have certain ideas or tastes in common, HECK YEAH. I haven't gone out of my way to date people of other races, but I also have never considered a person's race in whether or not to date them. Half my serious relationships have been non-white, and all of them were good experiences. I married one of them, and he's my soul mate. I can't imagine thinking, Too bad he's Puerto Rican. I'd have missed out on the love of my life and the amazing family we have together.

  • Though my mother did (she's African-American, my dad is Trinidadian Indian,) I haven't. And since I'm married, my dating days are over! LOL! I was never averse to dating outside of my race, I just never met anyone I was THAT into who wasn't of my race.

  • Oh yes I definately would. I prefer to date guys who aren't (I mean no offence with my comment) mostly white. I find them a little bland and boring.. I'm loving the Lebanese men I'm hanging out with .. yummy =)

  • Yep, my dh was a different race than I am. I have 2 beautiful mixed race children to show for it. I don't care what race a person is, its who they are that matter.
