1) Yes
2) It's just so happened that every relationship I've been in has been one...so I guess you can say for 6 years.
3) The reaction is mostly good, but erring on the side of caution at times.
4) I don't know about how it's like in Dallas, but in NYC it's viewed like any other couple. Of course people will stare for longer because it looks "different" but otherwise I haven't thought of it as a big deal.

Do you date interracially? Yes
How long have you dated interracially? for about 15 years
Has your family's reaction been good, bad, or ugly? Who Cares!! It's my life
If you've lived/worked in other places, is Dallas like most other places in terms of the reception you get when you appear together as a couple? I and hopefully my counterpart could care less about what others think, or say or the look. The best way to deal with these people who have personal problems is to glance at them, and smile.. They don't know how to handle this.

Yes I do from my very first boyfriend.

Family's reaction is? If your happy, that's all that matters.

I have worked with alot of racist people, and I have so to speak had to grin and bear it. But with that being said NO ONE has ever confronted me or more or less talked about my children being mixed or my relationship in front of me that would cause me discomfort.

I am the type of person if you stare at me that is your problem I am not going to shove it down your throat but staring is not nice so I may give you something to stare at....LOL

I am not bothered by what "SOCIETY" thinks it's my life and I live it Day for Day.....

Yes, I have for 15 years now, and since I am a self-supporting, mature adult over the age of 21, I don't give a damn what ANYONE thinks about my choices except ME!

I don't... but it's not because of race or society, as the gentlemen stated above. It's my preference and what I'm physically attracted to.

We all have our own preferences of what we are attracted to and what we look for in a person we want to date.

In simple words, yes.

I see no reason to deny feelings for another person just because they are a different skin color, now if the have a tail or flippers its off. I only date humans.

Why would you care what others think about you and someone of another race, color, or creed, for that matter?

You define your significance.

Skin tone alone is the only thing that gives away differing ethnic groups,I've seen some very albino A.A's yet I could tell where their roots where by other features (i.e. hair type...). I believe there's more to an ethnic group than the color of their skin and that may be why some women don't want A.A men (or Whitre men or asians..so on and so forth).

Wow...that's some list of questions

Yes ,I have dated quite a few men who were not black.Actually I am more attracted to white men for some reason....lol

In regards to my families reaction...my family is very diverse sooo that was never an issue(except with my dad...who is fine with it now)

As far as your question about the reaction others have and if Dallas is any different than those places......I have visited many states and a few countries and since I have gotten here I have actually noticed that it is still kind of behind the times.But personally I don't care I think someone should date whomever makes them happy regardless of skin color

I've only dated interracially. There's just something about white men..hmmm :) I tend to have more interactions and similar interests with white men, opposed to most black men.

Race was never an issue in my family. My family is very diverse, with almost every racial group you can think of. lol. Some people can overlook race and other's can't. Everyone has preferences regarding food, clothes, etc., and interracial dating is just that....a preference!

If the Lord wanted us to date inerracially he would have made one race ? Interesting play on words, seeing as how the term interracial means more then one race which God made and I do not recall anywhere in the Bible that it says to stick with your own color. If you choose not to have a relationship with sm one outside of your race that is your prefarance but lets not put words in the Lord's mouth.

actually there is one reference to interracial dating in bible. moses' sister and brother objected to his interracial marriage to a midianite, and God gave her leprosy and removed the brother from his office as pastor until they repented of their prejudice and sin and accepted his wife. kind of clear that God don't play the 'race' card.

Thank you for clearing that up. I did forget about that verse, I guess only because he is for and not against is the point I was going for. But, none the less If people want to make remarks on what God thinks they nd to be aware. Again Thanks !

Yes I do date out side of my race BUT that does NOT mean I date any one from any race. The assumption many white men make is all that matters to me is they are white. I am sorry he has to have a bit more going for himself than the fact he is white. AND no all white men arent good looking. IN fact there a great number who are dog ugly. If I am attracted to a man then yes... BUT if all he is white NO not happening.
