I think that's just what you want. We all have our preferences when it comes to dating. I like men who are smart, educated, who are professional, and who are respecful to women. I am an equal oppurtunist though when it comes to race, because I don't want to limit myself. If you want to date a certain race more power to you.
I dont think having a racial preference is racist, it is just about your own personal choice,I am black/caribbean i prefer black ,white and Hispanic men, that does not mean i would not date a man from another race other than the ones i mentioned it is just id rather go out with them,i am more so attracted to this specific group..
To give my shallow version of an answer, I'm attracted to "womanly" (and I use that term loosely) body parts... breasts, hips, butt, thighs, etc. Certain races are more prone to have certain body types, but for me... if I like what I see and we match personality-wise, then I don't see why race should be an issue.
I am weird in that I don't tend to prefer my own race it seems. I have never dated someone caucasian. My past relationships look like a tour of the UN, and not the European section either. I like all cultures and have no problem dating someone of a different race or religion. I have nothing against dating caucasian guys. Just haven't found one I want to date yet.
I have a GENIUS for a son who has a white father and an very bright black mother!! If someone makes you happy go for it! I wasn't looking to date a white guy and I am not actively seeking one out now. In fact, I am leaning towards dating a black man only because I know the difficulties of inter-racial dating/marriage. So I don't feel it makes me a racist, do you?
Can you tell some of the genetic problems with interracial children, I havw never heard of any except for having ignorant relatives. Does that count as one. I worked in a hospital nursery for 11 years and never saw a baby born with genetic problems because of race...
Race doesn't enter into my dating equation. For others it's a preference like anything else. Some who might otherwise date interracially choose not to do so because this is America, and large segments of the population are still stuck in the stone age and they don't want to endure the potential problems associated with a society that has yet to come to terms with its racial diversity.
As for "slimmer nubile young nymphettes," I don't think the first question they ask a man is "Why do you like slimmer nubile young nymphettes?"
Racist is a term that's got some really bad connotations with it but, if you look at it from a different angle, then if you prefer the opposite sex for dating, you're sexist. If you have an age preference, then you're agist. If you prefer no children then... you're kiddist (haha I made that one up) but you get the gist. I hope.
If you have a particular preference for a particular race and don't hate the race you are ommitting from your preferences, then you're not racist. You just have certain tastes that's all.
I find that most of the other dating sites are really weight-ist, i.e. you can't be overweight or obese because if you are, your profile gathers dust and cobwebs. Pity. There's a lot of us cuddly ladies (and men) out there with super personalities being overlooked for the slimmer nubile young nymphettes (that in twenty years time might be in my situation LOL )

I have three, smart; funny; gorgeous and HEALTHY interracial kids who are my life. Okay fine......is talking back a genetic defect? LMAO
Well some ethnic lines suffer from certain illnesses and diseases more than others so maybe thats what they were refering to
Athsma, diabetes etc... some groups are more likely to have it vs whites
I am half 1/4 russian/3/4 mexican so I guess I am a ticking time bomb! lol
I like certain looks and for some reason I am attracted to red heads blue/green eyes and soft pale skin ....far from my medium brown, black hair, brown eyed relatives....but who knows how that happened....opposites attract maybe?
Do I date hispanic women? Black women? Asian women? If I find them attractive and nice I wouldnt hesitate because race wasnt a factor in my dating decisions
But I will say, dating a black girl in Maryland was the most interesting experience of my life --- being the only mexican in a 10+ mile radius made for quite the evening stroll on our dates....guess they thought I was white???
I think that regardless of the racial or cultural difference of the couple, the main thing that it boils down to is whether either person is willing to put their happiness over what their family wants.
When I hear people say that they don't date outside their race because they may lose their family, I feel really sorry for them. I like to think that my family respects my life decisions and respects my judgement on what makes me happy. Why is it that your happiness is less important than what they feel about someone of another race?
I do not believe in trying to force someone to believe as I believe, neither am I interested in not doing something just because others don't like it. I also felt that if my loved ones wanted to give me grief about finally finding someone who loves me the way that I need and want to be loved, then my so-called loved ones did not really love me. Fortunately, no one in my family had to be tested on that. Everyone loves my honey and is happy for me. And I love them even more for loving me enough to want to see me happy despite their own personal beliefs.
This has been an interesting forum. I also think it's all about preference. I grew up in a city where the majority of the city was white when i first moved away I had a culture shock. Although I dont prefer to date out of my race I am not against it my brother married a white woman and i was her maid of honor. And if you were to talk to me on the phone you would swear I was white. My only nephew is bi-racial and I love him to death. People need to let the race thing go and love a person for who they are.
I am actually American, yeah! I've lived in Glasgow for about or soon to be 3 years now. I do have one friend here though that is Scottish and part native american as well (and looks more like it than I do) which I found interesting.
I've only ever been through Perth once on my way up to Inverness, and once near Loch Tay to check out the Crainnog (sp) which is pretty nifty. Should check it out sometime!
The invite works both ways as well, if you're ever in Glasgow gimme a shout.
