    Re: Would you marry someone from a different race ?

    I'm certainly not opposed to the idea. However, the decision would ultimately depend upon a number of different factors; ranging from intelligence, character, world view, and even physical attractiveness.

    While, admittedly, I have pretty much only been involved with women of my own race, I can say with some degree of certainly that I have met at least one person of every race appealing enough that I wouldn't mind becoming involved if the opportunity were to present itself.

    A different race, yes- I have dated women of a variety of races.

    A drastically different culture (regardless of race), probably not.

    So many factors enter into the equation, that it's difficult enough to find one person among thousands in the first place. It may just be that my standards are way too high, but even with those standards, I've met men of different cultures and skin colors throughout my adult lifetime that I found very appealing. I suspect it may be easier for women, than it is for some men, as men seem to often be much more visually stimulated, and more women seem to respond to emotional and intellectual stimuli more readily. And maybe I'm just talking out my ass, and don't have a clue, but that's the way it seems to me.

    I think you have a point here.

    And the only man I've met in many years that I was very attracted to for a variety of reasons happened to be of another race. Wasn't meant to be, sigh, but what a marvelous man.

    Yes, it's a funny thing what can attract us sometimes, and what makes someone marvelous in our eyes. For me, it isn't in skin color. It's their very being, and it has to resonate with me at a level other than conscious. There is no list of qualifications that can be met, and assure that I will be attracted. It's more than that.

    If I am ever to become single again, yes, I would marry a woman that isn't white if the situation presented itself.

    I can't see what race has to do with love and marriage (my way of saying "yes" without voting ) It just seems to be a way of calling out people

    just my opinion.

    I think if you truly love a person, their outer wrapping doesn't matter.

    Re: Would you marry someone from a different race ?

    I don't see anything wrong with interracial dating, but does anyone find it hard not to stare at the ones who look so mismatched based on appearances? There are some white guys(suit/briefcase/Wall Street looking) who you'd think would never date a black woman by looking their appearance, and there are some black women who look like they wouldn't date a white man based on their appearance(dreads/militant looking). So it's interesting to see the two together, lol
