    How likely would you date or marry outside your own race?

    This question isn't meant to put anyone on the spot. I am just curious how people feel about this subject in the 21st century

    It shouldn't matter on race as long as you love that person.

    My first marriage was outside of my race.
    I believe love is color blind.

    True love is not measured by color. When love is pure, the boudaries are endless.

    I'm already married to someone of the same race, but if I weren't, I'm likely to date outside my race but marrying is an entirely different question.

    It's about 50-50 because I only care if they respect,love me and treat me well.

    We restrict ourselves in many ways but a man's color isn't one of my restrictions. MY only restriction is gender,I will only date and marry a man,doesn't matter what color,ethnicity,or birth place.

    Love is where you find it!

    Ewww!!!   I can't even imagine it!   Such a waste of time.  Such head games.  Such bullshit.

    Oh - the race thing?  Couldn't care about that any less.  I think, actually, that when two people of different races/ethnicities/skin tones are romantically/sexually attracted to each other, it immediately lifts the excitement and subliminally delivers the message from each to the other that their mutual values are such that superficial bunk and (even in 2011!!!!) the possibility of public scrutiny (at least in some parts of the "yeee hawww, git along liddle dawgie!" United States doesn't matter one damned bit. 

    Before I "untwisted" my understanding of my own sexuality, I actually did have a relationship with a black girl from Piscataway, NJ. whom I met when our choirs got together during a tour my high school "Chamber Singers" was doing (Hanover, MA).

    It was rivetting, exciting - she was sensual and yes - even though I am gay ('splains a lot that I'll not get into here) - pretty damned hot.  She had an energy and allure and I an underclassman naivete that I thought the fact that she was older and from "Jersey", had such an absolutely irresistible "dangerousness" or "I can't believe I'm 'playing' so far out of my league!" - my words now at 39, not how I put it at 16 - quality to it.

    And yes, even now, I can appreciate that I thought she was just so satiny and sophisticated (and a damned f@#$ing hot-good alto - who could hit we tenors' mid-range notes with Etta James sultriness.  Hey - I was smitten, man!

    Anyway - the racial thing is irrelevant on the "bad side" and tantalizing on the good.  But - I haven't been on a date, or even stepped into "my kind of bar" in a gajillion years - and I don't miss it.  That's a long story, too.  No - not "scarred for life" by some trauma or rejection or whatever.  Just not interested anymore.  My health, my music, my writing, and how I feel about making life better for those folks I serve in my "day job" are plenty taxing and fulfilling.

    probably about 5-10% likely to interracial marry...Idk I'm just not as attracted to people who don't look somewhat like me. But who knows, personality kicks the crap out of looks any day

    I can honestly say I have stuck, 100%, with the human race! To be honest I can't envisage that changing in the near future!

    If I met and fell in love with someone outside my race, it wouldn't be an issue for me. It would depend on the person as I don't think that race would come into it. Love knows no boundaries.

    I think it doesnt make a difference. Religion seems to spark more controversy nowadays then race anyways.... But i'll leave elaborating on that subject alone, Lol

    I absolutely would marry outside of my race.

    There is a good as chance as there is for marrying one of my same race. All depends on chemistry, timing, personality and compatibleness

    I am a white guy (Native American and German descent) and I married an Asian woman.  There is only one race as far as I am concerned and that is the human race.
