Interracial datingcentral awkward stages dating
The internet has been an absolute boon for people who are open to dating interracially.
Places online like Interracial Dating allows for men and women to take all the guess work out of wondering whether or not a non-Black person is open to them.
I also advocate because Black women are at a unique dating disadvantage in America.
Marriageable Black women outnumber marriageable Black men by the millions.
I mean actual, real-life interracial relationships. Despite its higher representation on TV and in pop culture, this is still a taboo subject, and one that is often met with a range of emotions that are not always positive.
So I decided to talk to interracial relationship expert, Christelyn Karazin, Brand Ambassador for Interracial Dating Central.com, who gave her thoughts on the subject and why she is an interracial dating advocate particularly for Black women.
If she wants to be married, have children, etc., the numbers just aren’t in her favor to remain exclusive to Black men.
No, I don’t mean gabbing about the latest drama between Olivia and Fitz.
I’ve often been called by my critics, “The Chief Bed Wench,” because I’m seen at the forefront of this issue. But many Black women are sensitive to that kind of insult and outright disapproval. We want the people in our lives to approve of the men we bring home. It comes down to what makes you happy and what makes your heart feel like it’s found its home.
It kind of throws a damper on the inclination to explore interracial dating if you know your parents said they would disown you if you ever brought home a white boy. I’m seeing more and more Black women finding their bliss with the men who love and accept them, regardless of race. If you’re lonely and sad, but your entire peer group (including family) approves of the idea of never dating a non-Black man even if he was utterly kick-ass amazing, can you really say those people in your life want the best for you?
But how would you respond to women who feel this way?
Christelyn: Black women have a unique set of challenges in the dating market.
