On black women dating

14 Dec

Another of my male relatives brought home a woman for Christmas who seemed like a modern-day, socially progressive southern belle.

She was blonde, full figured, outgoing, and outspoken with a saucy southern accent and friendly, expressive manner.

Once, I was at a bar with friends when two white men approached me.

One was a guy who was interested in talking to me, and the other was acting as his wingman.

Shutterstock For some Black women, going on a date with a White man can be extremely nerve-wracking, especially if it’s their first time dating a white man. ” Well, in this case your best bet is to go into the date thinking that he’s just a normal guy, regardless of his race.

You might be wondering, “Will we have anything in common? Unfortunately, sometimes that plan fails miserably because some of these White men can’t help but keep reminding you that you are Black and they are White.

He kept touching my hair without my consent, was legitimately disappointed that I could not twerk, and called me “sassy” whenever I voiced an opinion that was different from his.

The wingman walked up to me as his friend stood beside him and screamed over the music, “You’re perfect!

My friend likes black girls, but he doesn’t like them too dark!

She was probably very nice; but I cannot say for sure.

She was shy and didn't talk much in what was likely an unfamiliar and perhaps overwhelming African American social setting.
