Dating between black women
I don't choose a man based on the color of his skin. That's what we should be focusing on, not what color, but how happy someone makes you. If you feel like someone is not treating you right because of your race, then you have to get out and find someone who will. And no matter what race he is, he will love me as the African American girl I am. I don't even understand why race is such a problem in the dating world, anyway. I kept thinking that because I was black no guy would love me, but I had to learn that guys in my past couldn't handle me. Everything that's happening in the world today isn't helping us either. Last time I checked, when you fall in love, you fall in love with the person, not the color. But not everyone is open to how couples are being formed, more specifically, interracial couples. Dating is already hard in the world today, and interracial dating can be even harder. I am a proud African American woman, but my last few relationships have been with white men. But at the end of the day, all that matters is that you are happy and remember your worth. We have enough racism in the world; we need to show more interracial dating. All my friends were being flirted with and always gained attention from boys. My mother talked to me and told me that when it comes to dating white boys it’s difficult because I need to have a strong one.I need to have a strong guy who can stick up for me and be proud dating a black girl.In a chilling account discussed on the podcast, a Dating Ring user, upon receiving the name and phone number of a match, was said to have replied: “I hope that’s a typo, because that name doesn’t sound white to me.” Whenever someone tells me that discussing online dating is a waste of time, I refer to that anecdote and two sad truths about the online dating industry that Dating Ring’s founders discovered: First, giving people the tools to act on racial bias is profitable; and second, it is not fair to users who are discriminated against to be matched with people who are biased against their racial group and, as a result, will dismiss them as potential matches.
I was a bit confused why he couldn't tell me his answer, but I was patient. He could have rejected me normally, I can handle that, but he had to bring my race into it. I survived bullying, have dealt with depression and being betrayed, but hearing that my race is the reason a guy wouldn't date me was just too much to handle. If it just happens that it's only white guys, so be it. The biggest reality of interracial dating I had to face was with my recent college crush on a white guy. He was my best friend, and we were both falling for each other.
I wanted to be in a relationship with a guy who loved me and treated me like I was his number one.
When I dreamed of my perfect guy, I never thought of what color or race he would be.
Did I really want to contribute to businesses that felt they had no choice but to cater to people’s racial biases to stay afloat? I’ve logged off from the handful of sites and apps I had been using.
But I have not lost hope in the online-dating industry.
