Let’s Be Real About “Race”

When it comes to dating and attraction, we do tend to be more attracted to certain “races” and physical features than others.  We don’t always verbalize these preferences because it might offend people, but it’s true.  I won’t lie – I am attracted to guys of certain racial backgrounds more so than others because of the physical features that go with it.  When I am walking on the street, certain guys catch my eye more than others.

I am not claiming that certain races/ethnic backgrounds are more attractive, but that I have certain personal preferences.  I am not racist.  I believe every individual is deserving of equal civil rights.  I treat everyone fairly and with respect.  I just can’t help who I am attracted to.

This doesn’t mean that I completely eliminate the possibility of dating guys outside my type.  I’m sure most of us are aware of the fact that 9 times out of 10, people end up falling in love with those who weren’t their “types”.  I would never not date a guy solely because of his race and look, provided he was nice and there was good chemistry between us.

I just wanted to make a point that it is okay to be more attracted to certain physical features than others, even if those physical appearances are overlapped with racial backgrounds.  I think a lot of people are made to feel guilty for not largely being attracted to certain groups in favor of others.  Just remember that it is also okay to give your “non-types” a chance.
