Dating other races

A+ A-

So i have a question on whether it will feel right to date someone from a different race say black or say a Christian coz for me i really dont mind, what about you guys?
Coz i have noticed you revolve around this muslem and Arabic world here, have you ever thought of stepping out of this comfort zone?

    I personally am attracted to personality and humor first and foremost! But a lot of others do have specific types/comfort zones, etc. I am all for people reaching out of their racial and cultural bubbles to find friendship and love.

    I personally like getting to know people from different backgrounds. All I ask is that the person is attractive inside AND out.

    I personally wouldn't mind, as long as I get along well with that person then it's ok, what matters for me is to have a good connection and be compatible

    I personally don’t think that love has a race nor a gender, therefore I believe that if you come across someone with all your criteria and instant match you wouldn’t mind their race or culture or background...

    I agree when love strikes it won't matter what race or religion your match belong to. Yet sometimes racial and religious differences complicate things which usually doesn't have to do anything with the couple and everything with their context however since our situation here is already complicated

  • Basically all of you can date out of your races and religion but no one has done it yet which means it remains to be an opinion untill it's put in place

    I did date an American Christian woman for a while (I'm Egyptian and atheist). It didn't work out at the end, but it had nothing to do with our different backgrounds, religions or anything like that. We were simply incompatible. So, yeah, I don't personally mind dating people from other races, nationalities, religions, etc. What matters is that we get along and genuinely like each other, anything else doesn't matter.

      You do realize that being American isn't a race right??

      Yeah, I'm well aware of that! That's why I mentioned nationalities... I believe this discussion is about people from different backgrounds, cultures, and anything that could constitute a fundamental difference, and not strictly about race and/or religion!

    Experience

    I am currently with a girl who is of a different race and religion. It doesn’t bother me one bit. We respect each other’s religion, customs and well, everything. It never felt weird or different. There were some culture shock moments but nothing too major and it’s always interesting to learn about things I don’t know.
