I hope this isn’t a sensitive topic, but I think it is a real issue. My last question was pretty vague. I’m pretty much a minority ethnicity in the area that I live in. The majority ethnicity probably comprising about 85-90% of the population. When I visit areas where people are of the same race as me, or even where the area is more multi-cultural, I find it pretty easy to attract women. Most of them think I’m really good looking even if they don’t want to date me or they do want to date me. I have been pretty much raised color blind, and I have lots of friends of different races. But when it comes to dating where I live, most women tend to ignore me. I think I may comee off as intimidating or something, but I don’t know. Is it just the area I live in? I’ve never dated outside of my race except for once, but I’d like to explore more – it’s just so much harder to date multi-culturally then it to date within the same culture. Is it just the area I live in? Do I need to move?
Race and ethnicity is one of those while elephants in the From everyone see but no one wants to mention. Because if someone was to say they didn’t like to date this or that, they could be mistaken as being a racist. And no one wants to be considered a racist. But as it showed in a recent TV news show. Many people will go into matchmaking and dating Web sites and say they are open to other races, yet only a small percent actually have the moxie to follow through. Unless the annual income of the other person is many 10s of thousands to 100s of thousands more than the usual guy of the usual race they would date. Some are truly color blind, and some Euro women actually like men of ethnic background. But those who are really true to that are far between. Many think of IF it goes to the point of having kids that the kids would suffer by being in between races, and not fully accepted by any. Being in an area where there is one major race like 85% or better. I do not believe they really know or believe who the person really is because they still in the back of their mind rely on stereotypes.
