I think the greater the gene pool the more likely the person is to be physically attractive.

So quit wasting your time and move on. It is her choice who she is attracted to.
Both of my nieces are mixed race and they are both quite beautiful.
As with anything else each individual is attracted to some and not to others, there is no blanket answer to your question.

You answered the question of this thread, in the affirmative.

Apparently, you believe one should be judged by their skin color?!?

Because of the fact that I am not white, she considers me unattractive. Is that logical? No!

True. But I also have a right to be attracted to her as well.

Just because I have dark skin, should not rule me out.

I do understand that she most likely wants someone who is fair, with blonde hair. If that is the case, I'm not sure what I should do!

You should quit while you're ahead. You're only asking for trouble by continuing to obsess over this.

Yes, it is logical.

People are attracted to some things, turned off by others.....that is natural.

Some might not like dark skin.....some might not like red hair.....some might prefer large eyes to small eyes.

She is entitled to her personal preference.....just as you are.

Many people are attracted to someone who is not attracted to them for whatever reason.....that's life.....move on.

What is your opinion, on this matter?

Do you share this, opinion; that people who are mixed-race are (physically) unattractive? Or do you have a more open-minded approach to this??

This is just a general question. I am not debating whether this is right or wrong. I am simply curious, to see what the general consensus is regarding this topic.

Thanks in advance for your feedback!

Best.
No ! It's the opposite. Mixed Breeds are more attractive and stand out more because they look more interesting than pure breeds.

I am mestiza and I stand out everywhere I go in the Philippines where people like mestizos and mestizas a lot.

My daughter and son are mixed breeds too. Honestly, my daughter was always being praised when we were still in Portugal before because everyone says she's very pretty. Well, I would always look at her and her friends and cousins as well and I can say she really looks more interesting than them.

There was once a poster here on CD who said, Mixed Breeds are God's Photoshop ". I actually agree on what he said.

I think attractiveness has nothing to do with race. There are mixed race people that are really attractive nd other people that are not. Just like with "full-blooded" people.

But there are plenty of people that being mixed automatically makes you attractive. This is problematic for many reasons.

My father is white, my mom is Hispanic. I would not call, that an oxymoron. See my picture, if you don't believe me.

I look mixed because I have most of my Moms features, yet I am not as dark as most Hispanics. That is how most know that I am mixed.

You would be amazed at how many people think, I look Asian, when I have no Asian background whatsoever. It can get very frustrating, because I know that the girl I like is not attracted to people who look Hispanic or Asian.
