True. It is just physical characteristics. Who cares if someone prefers tall, short, stocky, slender? Or if they prefer blond and fair or brunette.

Some people prefer people who are more like themselves, or their family members, others prefer to find their opposites -- sometimes you see tall with tall and short with short but other times you see very tall with very short.

No. I'm not an ass. What I mean is I don't have skin preference or height preference (okay, if you're a midget then I don't know). This isn't open admissions though. My "preferences": straight teeth, good hygiene and no dirt under fingernails. Is that better?

I myself have dated women of various backgrounds(Jamaican, Nigerian, Chinese, Malaysian, Italian, Scottish, German, and Native American) I think mutual interest, physical attraction and environment is what counts. As a side note I have a buddy who wasn't into asian women but then he went to asia for a month. Now all he checks out is asian girls I guess he got caught by the Asian Persuasian....lol

It seems like men are open to other races but not women?

It seems like black chicks are pretty hung up on not going outside their race.

I think I have based on appearence, some based on culture...but I won't say what race or ethnicity.

But generally in my own defense, I tend to have a specific look that I like with certain ethnicities. Otherwise its a no go. Unfortunately physical attraction is just as important as social chemistry. It's extremely difficult for me to find someone completely attractive without the two of them

Negative. Many have always been as interested as BM are--the difference is that most talk themselves out of it due to bad experiences or rejection in the past from non-BM. It's discourages them from openly admitting it and causes them to be preemptively defensive. It's a way of saying "I'm going to reject and hurt you...before you can hurt and reject me." If they don't openly admit that they have found non-BM attractive it sort of leaves them less vulnerable to objectional opinions from those same men.

Well in general people like to date within their own ethnicity because they have more in common.
