African men black women dating

I just wanted to be loved and have someone who treated me right.

Since middle school, I have always been the only African American girl in my school. He was white, and he was the first boy to show me attention. Did he forget that my father is a black man and that I am black?

I felt different quickly and felt no one really understood me. I would think white boys at my school would look beyond that. How could he say these things when I'm in the room?

The reasoning behind this is because those things shouldn't matter when you’re in love.

All that should matter is that you are happy and respected in a relationship.

I am a proud African American woman, but my last few relationships have been with white men. But at the end of the day, all that matters is that you are happy and remember your worth. We have enough racism in the world; we need to show more interracial dating.

I don't choose a man based on the color of his skin. That's what we should be focusing on, not what color, but how happy someone makes you. If you feel like someone is not treating you right because of your race, then you have to get out and find someone who will. And no matter what race he is, he will love me as the African American girl I am.

In shock, I lost all verbal filter and said, "I like bacon and I love Jesus." He continued to attempt to tell me my religion was no issue but he never addressed the bacon. I've taken a break from dating but know that one day my guy will find me.

Love is one of the most beautiful things that can be shared between two people. I didn't mention gender, religion, background, race or skin color.

All I could do was smile and throw shukrans, "thank you" in Arabic.

Before the end of date two, he went in for the kill with "I take you wife" in a serious tone.
