That’s right folks, I’m finally ready to do it……
Date outside my race.
Surprised? Me too. I really never thought I would get to this point.
So what changed? Well, a couple of things. First, I started thinking….while I love my Black men, what if the man that’s meant for me isn’t Black? What if I met him two years ago but wasn’t paying attention because he wasn’t Black? Is it fair to myself to close myself off to other opportunities? Second, Black men aren’t waiting around for me, so why am I waiting around for them? I don’t think I know any Black men who date Black women exclusively. And third, even if it doesn’t work out, at least I meet some new people and move in some different circles.
All in all, it doesn’t seem like a bad idea….
Oh, and I have a date on Friday, with a Black guy.
