Interracial attraction

Posted by Ria, 19 Mar 07

Does dating out of your own race have anything to do with physical preference of that particular race or is it more than that? Are you physically attracted to a particular race? Apparently some people may not be attracted to some races since their physical characteristics fall outside of what they find attractive.

Physical attraction plays a major role in relationships. It is how our bodies are wired. There is this notion that some people - in the same way they're not attracted to blonde hair, freckles or people of a certain height or weight- are not attracted to a particular race. One blogger said “just like I can't MAKE myself attracted to a fat woman, I can't MAKE myself attracted to a woman who isn't Caucasian᾿

Well am not sure how true this is but I am yet to find out from you people. Are you in an interracial relationship simply because you want your kid to genetically acquire some physical trait that people in your own race don’t possess? How does it work for you?

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

    I like how I read different posts and people still say...this race or that race when there is only one race and that's the human race! Hell I'm attracted to women. If I'm attracted to ya that means the chemistry is there and I want you in my arms plain and simple. Peace In ~~~Crosseye~~~

    For me, I'm attracted to every race save a few exceptions (mostly because personalities and cultures clash). I want what I want, when I want it. If my eye draws a black man, then that's what it is. If my eye lingers on the Irish man with green eyes, then that's what it is. I must say that I love the contrast of skin tones but this could be the difference between a caucasian'skin tone and mine, a latino's skin tone and mine, a black man's skin tone and mine, an Indian's skin tone and mine, etc. My late husband is latino and we had a beautiful child. He looks just like me. I certainly did not pursue my relationship with him because of the "mixed child" we would make. Beauty can be find in everyone no matter the race. No one should be ashamed of finding more beauty in one over another unless its is personal misconception to think one race is more beautiful than your own. All races are flavor to me and I don't mind trying them all. I'll end up with who I end up with because of the person themselves. Attraction is merely the starting point.

    Curiosity can be the main factor why people have interracial dating.This is real life with everyday people.People from all races,customs,and culitures is going through some form of negativity.What is people searching for? Happiness and security.Its a good feeling to wake up everyday next to the one who truly loves you. Love,if we think about that word for a moment can we find negativity in it? Love your neighbor as you would yourself.To all people of the world in every nation find your interracial partner and be happy.....

    Sexual attraction is clearly a chemical thing which is reenforced with a person's social conditioniong. I can't explain why I am not attracted to overweight women or why I like women with long hair or why I prefer healthy breasts. In this world however, I have found that all of the key physical characteristics that work for me can be found in virtually every racial group. This is especially true in a multi-cultural society such as ours where there is a growing number of people of mixed race. That is why I think interracial dating and marriage is likely to rise even more in the coming decades.

    Well, I just find certain physical characteristics sexually attractive. I love ginger hair, dark hair, short guys, tall guys, tubby guys, athletic guys, guys with dark eyes or green eyes, guys with glasses and as a result that means i like white guys, black guys, asian guys.... but I like such a variety of things that I feel I should just look where I can for love cos love is everywhere.... its the personality that wins hands downin the end!

    Joe you nearly made me bust a gut. I dont know exactly if its a "big dick" phobia, but you did make a valid point. Women in general grow up just as men do in their 30's, not just black women or men..ALL women and men.

    I don't have a physical preference for white men. I am a black woman and it would be crazy for me to say that I don't find black men attractive..also untrue. It just happens that usually white men ask me out. As for children. If you are dating outside because you want a child that has"certain qualities"..you might be sorely disappointed. Genetics are a crazy thing!

    I guess we all have a type of person that attracts us. In my case, I would say that its always been an attraction more toward certain women but not necessarily limited to one ethniticty or race. It certainly has nothing to do with what I think children would look like from a certain combination. A very interesting topic, Rita. The responses should be good!

    I am free, I can date a person of another race (with cooperation) just as easily as a man of the same race. I am a black woman strongly attracted to tall, fair skinned (caucasion) men with dark hair and green eyes. Athletic, slim and muscular build. However, currently I am very much head over heals crazy about a Black guy that I have know for three years now. We are not dating but I would love us to be. I was looking for a white guy. Then one day at a party, after not seeing him for a year, we were huging and holding each other. It felt so great. Later someone saw all of this and asked if he was my boyfriend, and I thought wow that would be great if he were. We may not get together as lovers but that interaction helped free me. I understand other peoples preference and I respect it, but I am comfortable this way. I feel less pressure because my type mentioned above does not approach me at all. Whereas, Black men approach me everyday. I wish everyone was free too.

    I do NOT agree with this. I think two of a kind are beautiful, moreso than different races often times. I certainly don't date just to be "diverse". I take my relationships serious and I have to have feelings for that person.

    Hmmm...great question. For me, I am more physically attracted to a particular race. And yes, since some races do fall outside of what I am attracted to, they are automatically put out of the picture. Seems a little shallow at first because you would think that personality should mean soemthing. But the truth of the matter is if I have to wake up with this person every day (after marriage) it would behove me to be attracted to him. Oh, and about the children. I never gave thought to think I wanted my children to look a certain way other than like me. I am proud of my appearance and would love for my children to look like me. Just because I am attracted to a certain type of man does not mean I don't find myself to be attractive...besides I am not trying to marry my clone. lol

    I dont think anyone should get into an interartial realationship to get a "highbreed". One should marry someone whether in their own race or otherwise because of love.

    In my opinion interracial relationships make things more diversified for many reasons. For me seeing two of a kind looks strange, such as a white couple or black couple or latin couple or ......... The couples would look much better if they were mixed.
