In addition, buy into disparaging stereotypical comments made about yourself or your relationship either.Statements like “Oh, she’s the type that would date Black men.” or “You’re the type of Black woman that White men wouldn’t like.” is just projected negativity.

People who make such statements have some sort of issue with other people being happy, even though it is masked as “wisdom” and advice.

Everyone has the right to the pursuit of happiness, and also to be free to define what “happiness” means to them!

Are you dating Asian men because you want smart children? When you are dating, it is especially important to determine how the other person sees you.

Both notions are incredibly foolish and dismissive of the deep and true qualities of romantic relationships. Are you being seen as a potential mate, or as this person’s next adventure?

Interracial couples also have to examine the stereotypes that they hold between each other. Today’s society is a “pick and choose” type of place where we are use to having lots of options.

Did you hook up with a Black man because of his sexual prowess? Well this type of attitude does not translate very well over into the romantic arena, and yet, many people approach their love life like shopping in a mall.No one demonized my grandmother for this, because she was born and raised in a country where 90% of the population was Black.Here in the United States, yes, we are blessed to have a diverse society with large, vibrant communities of different cultures. 5 years ago, I automatically saw anyone else who was dating interracially as my ally…or at least a kindred spirit. While I’m not sure if this is bred by jealously or insecurity, the end result is ongoing challenges to the integrity of your own relationship. Other Black women who date interracially (including my BF’s ex), seem quick to make judgement calls on the quality of our relationship (in spite of having very limited information available).People who imply this, usually have serious issues with my next pitfall. In regular conversation, I’ve been known to freely state that “I hate stereotypes”. In addition, stereotypes exist in that they are important in regards to social learning and the assessment of others.Well this is not untrue…but it also doesn’t tell the entire story. So what I really have an issue with is the improper application and use of stereotypes.And what unites us…as human beings…is the longing to find a mate, and be fully accepted by them.
