When it comes to dating, race/ethnicity has never mattered to me. If I am attracted to you, I am attracted to you. In fact, I have only ever dated guys who are not in my own ethnic group. I don’t purposely seek out guys who have a different ethnicity than mine; it just naturally happens. I wouldn’t ever let someone’s ethnicity stop them from becoming a possible partner. If I went by the bird-of-a-feather effect, I wouldn’t have dated my current boyfriend. I would be missing out on a shit ton if I didn’t choose to date him just because he isn’t from the same ethnic group as me. Honestly, it doesn’t sound fair and it is extremely limiting. But hey, if you feel more comfortable dating someone of your own race then you do you.
Thankfully, I haven’t encountered any difficulties with my family, friends, or the general public for having a bi-racial relationship. Nowadays, bi-racial couples aren’t that rare and I feel like people are generally more open-minded about it or they just don’t really care. As along as my significant other is kind, loving, and respectful then my family couldn’t care less about ethnicity. My current boyfriend is all of those things. In other words, he’s a keeper.
