Thirteen years of dating boys outside my race and it took sitting down to write this essay to have the first, real conversation with my parents about interracial dating.I used to say I didn't have a type, but if we go off consistency, I do.I've dated other races aside from black men—my first and only boyfriend of two years was Korean. "My parents, I should say, have never forbidden me from dating black men, or a man of any race, but their silence, more so my mother's, has been felt—it rendered each guy invisible.But I've never dated someone of my own ethnicity: Mexican. And I would say Colombian, but that courtship never blossomed into much after he came over my house and serenaded me with his acoustic guitar. Time and again, after being introduced to a black guy I was dating, my mother either let out heavy sighs or foretold my future under her breath. My dad used his seasonal, strictly temporary passport for work and came to Arizona to pick fruit.With both my sister and daughter it was not about money, status, race, it was about who the person was and how they were loved and could give the love back. She actually prefers this type of man because she has been deeply hurt by boys/man of her own race. From the way I was raised and what I have witnessed in my family these two actually seem to be doing better than most ......I have been in 2 relationships and they were both of my same ethnic group.While I've dated other races, I'm mostly attracted to black men.
He has a son, and my daughter is helping to raise him. She told me Mom he is good to me, he treats me right, the way I want and need to be treated.
The things that lead to separation I would never wish on anyone. I can honestly say that the Mexican (not sure about Latino/Hispanic) they refer themselves as "Mexican" men I have met where I am all have been totally respectable, nice, loving and supportive to me.
I had never imagined myself with anyone other than my race. It seems they try harder and want to be more pleasing.
Several of my friends have encouraged me to "give it a chance"....
I have contemplated it..I know in my heart of hearts what I want. And from all my observations, I can honestly say, that I do believe that I am OK with it and if it comes down to do, I'd do it in a heartbeat.
A white woman marries a Latino /Mexican/Hispanic man. Or will there always been some sort of boxing match in the ring? Here is a story of a white woman whose "fiance" was brutally beat while her sister was walking down the road with him. have two stories that are personal to me and my experience. My sister and her husband have loved this girl unconditionally!
