Black women on interracial dating
Women of contact black women online often exoticize them.
Women who do go on dates with those men sometimes find out that they’re more interested in dating a skin color or a stereotype than getting to know them as a person.
White men are most numerous on mainstream dating sites like OKCupid and and that’s where daters go to look for them.
Black women looking to date interracially are up for some stiff competition.
Since Black women have been hesitant to date interracially for so long, I do consider it “progress” that many of them are discovering that different races of men are willing to love and cherish them. Candice: Something I’ve also noticed lately is that more of my Black female friends have begun to look outside their race specifically due to their frustrations with dating Black men.
I feel like this approach could be a bit problematic (because I don’t believe race determines the quality of man).
When I started dating my husband back in 1999, there was absolutely no place, discussion or support for Black women who were dating and/or married interracially.
Marriageable Black women outnumber marriageable Black men by the millions.
Christelyn: I have tremendous respect for Shonda Rhimes. Neither of those characters are the caricature of a Black woman.
We have layers, and like all women, we are complicated and splendid creatures.
Unlike other dating experts, hers is a success story. Here’s what she had to say: Candice: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you’ve become an advocate for interracial couples?
Christelyn: As with most advocacy, my motivation comes from having my own experiences.
