 Have you ever thought about dating out of your race but afraid of what your family and friends thought?What was your experience and did you decide to date them or not?

If you have never thought to date out of your race.How would you react if a family member brought someone home of another race?

Didn't care what my family thought. My family is very racist. But I found someone who fit everything I was looking for who was Arab. Their opinion didn't matter.

I would have had half of my family's support lol. My dads side has several biracial, homosexual, and non traditional families in it and I love it! My moms side is very traditional as in only white straight married couples that beloeve anything but a traditional union is wrong

Wow wish I had family and friends that were opened minded!It is nice to know there are people out there that are not so hung up on race.

I tried dating outside my race, but it just wasn't for me. My mom was quite shocked but I just didn't feel comfortable doing it. Glad I tried, the guy was nice but he wasn't for me.

My family wants me happy. And me being happy meant marring a mixed man :).

I've never been attracted to anybody outside of my race but my family would disown me if I did.

Depends on the guy.  If my sis was dating a guy like obama?  whatever.  if she brought home flavo flav or hawever you spell it... that would be an issue.

I haven't but I don't think it would phase my family much

My family wouldn't give 2 shits who I dated. Man, woman, black, brown, white, yellow and everything in between. As long as I was happy and safe
