    Default First Thoughts on Interracial Relationships?

    What is your first reaction or thought when seeing an interracial couple? Does that thought last for a long time or does it go away quickly?

    I really give no thought to interracial couples except when someone I know is planning to introduce me to their partner and I assume they're of the same race. This happened when visiting my father's friend, the man is afram, during the visit he kept calling for his wife to hurry up and greet us. I was kind of assuming that she would also be afram but turns out she is blonde,blue eyed and pale.

    For a bit I had the "wasn't expecting that" thought but it went away in about a minute. It's funny how they have a biracial son and I hear talk of many others classifying biracials as simply black, when this guy clearly looks biracial. The son also has a white girlfriend, though when it comes to the younger generation I'm not surprised at all by interracial dating.

    my mom's friend is from India and her daughter is going to marry an African man, lets just say the Indian family didnt take it so well and dont want her marrying a black person, i ended up meeting her boyfriend but i wasnt expecting her to marry a black person, i was very surprise cause Indians tend to be racist against blacks

    Indian woman with black man is such a rare relationship to me

    I don't care about other people's lives... I won't be travelling abroad and in my social circles everyone looks the same, so I won't have any interracial relationship and therefore it's not something I'm usually thinking about.

    have you ever seen rare interracial couples?

    like my mom's friends kids
    one is Indian getting married to an African man (which the family hates)
    and then their other daughter is getting married to an East Asian man (which their family doesnt like either but they like him more than the African)

    where my parents live, theres an East Asian/White couple, you would expect it to be a white man with an asian chica but its an Asian man with a white chica

    Actually here in the Bay Area, there are a ton of different combinations. I think I might have the oddest ones, I've dated a black woman whose parents are from South Africa and a Russian who still held onto her culture(her parents don't speak english). What's weird is that I didn't get too many stares when out with the russian(if anything just smiles) but when with the african girl we were constantly getting unfriendly glares(they seemed to concentrate their stare at her but she didn't notice). Family wise, the russians didn't like me(well more like they were prejudiced against mexicans cause they expected me to be low class when in fact my family blows them out of the water when it comes to status ), the african family was cool(one of the brothers used to play for the NFL).

    The only people who seem to get stared over here is a black person with a non-black. Another rare couple I know is a Filipino man with a Russian woman.

    thats whats cool about living in big cities, you get to experience different cultures, thats cool about dating a South African and a Russian, pretty exotic if you ask me hahaha, i have this one friend (havent talked to him in years) but hes also from Northern California, hes mexican-american of many generations and he dated an Ethiopian, he is also pred Amerindian, that to me right there is exotic haha i wonder how their kids wouldve looked, my friend is like in the indo-mestizo range

    i guess the most exotic ive dated has been my current girlfriend who is of Suriname, Dutch and some other shit, my past girlfriends have been mexican, one of my ex girlfriend is Mexican of Italian heritage (we had sex like some weeks ago and shes probably pregnant and if she is then the Italian blood line in my family will continue hahaha), i guess she can be the next "exotic" thing ive dated cause finding Mexicans of Italian ancestry is hard here in California, the rest have been mexican mestizas

    ps: Russian chicas are so sexy (the darker ones)
