Of course, there’s no one guidebook that applies to every interracial relationship out there.
The challenges you’ll face, as well as their intensity, will depend on various factors: whether you grew up with similar socio-economic backgrounds, if you live in a big city or small town, and which races are involved.
But like for all great superheroes, there's a weakness or fear that causes some tension.
When black women date outside their race, it can be scary.
So, a black woman could be hesitant to date another race for fear of being judged even more. For those who still consider stereotypes to be fact, black women are framed as hypersexual, exotic women. But it can be specific at times, depending on the person who penetrates that circle of connectedness.
A black woman does not want disapproval from this circle just because she brought an “outsider” to join the ranks.
With 1 in 7 new marriages in the United States today being between people of different races or ethnicities, however, it’s quite possible you’ll find yourself dating someone of another race.Wedding Bells to be ringing soon :-D”Saleena: “I’m happily married to a coloured guy & wouldn't trade for the world.”Karen: “I have done and yes, would do – it seems odd to see this question considering where we are!?Race should not be a relationship issue.” Cecile: “Yes I have, and the question we all must ask ourselves is were you serious enough, so serious that u wouldn't mind taking him / her home to meet your parents.The data is labeled “unfortunate” in some respects, because there appear to be winners and losers, and those winners and losers seem to break down along racial lines.When it comes to mating, it seems that everyone doesn’t get to join hands and cross the finish line at the same time so that we all end up with equally-high self-esteem (I know; I was shocked too).
