"Hang out in places near colleges and downtown areas, which will have the highest concentration of educated and multiracial folks."
I totally agree with this one. I have hung out in Detroit. I have hung out in Ann Arbor (very educated, diverse, and multiracial). The difference is light day and night.

Dude... you like what you like. You are attracted to what you are attracted to. Are you limiting yourself? Arent we all "limited" by our preferences? Also, ALL women have their guard up for awhile before they begin to date. Seek what you want and dont settle. If that doesnt seem to be a fruitful search in a time frame you are hoping for, well, then you can always settle I suppose. Personally, I would rather seek what I seek and NOT settle.

The sanctions for doing so have loosened and in most cases disappeared so what is to stop anyone from making that choice? "
Which is a huge part of why we are seeing this "explosion" of people feeling free to now pursue interests that they may have been reluctant to pursue in the past.

I am not sure that is a reason to specifically date someone of a certain race. I just think that you are attracted to what you are attracted to and you like what you like.
Corporate America again flipping off haters and doing with their checkbook... they know where their bread is buttered and how the changing face of America is the one that buys their products. LOVE IT. The world is changing one couple, one young person, one commercial at a time...

"But it’s just painfully obvious, you only need to look into those
eyes to see all you want is for your passion, loyalty, dedication, fire

life, because you’re giving so much of yourself to him. I could think of
Very well articulated... and I co-sign this totally.... I can not think of anything better, either.

@TotallyNotGangster"Why wouldn't nonblack men be disturbed by the way black men treat their women?"
I know I am very disturbed when I see that. Although, I am disturbed when I see ANY men mistreat ANY women. I just dont get it.

Without this turning into a matchmaking service.... my son (the same age) would be delighted to meet this young lady. SixteenOnSeventeen.... get my email address from Christelyn (I hear she is good at matchmaking anyway...) and I will give yours to my son CJ - if you are interested.
And you sound like you are one fantastic young lady.... I would encourage you to continue to follow your dreams.

@dippedingodiva"he stated that naturally white men/boys flirt differently; however, when
it's with a Black woman specifically they are extra careful (not
wanting to say or do the wrong thing to give off the idea that they just
want to "hit it and quit it" or experimenting with a Black woman)."
I totally agree with your boyfriend on this one.
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Lesson: Black Chicks Need to Know When Non-Black Men are Hitting on Them!
As always, Christelyn's advice is right on point. White men express interest and/or flirt differently. We just do. Very much more subtle. Much more carefully and cautiously. And look for feedback at each step before we take the next baby step.

@onmywayup @markhaaseth @18andlegal "live in the metro-Detroit area. Yes, it's racially polarized...but I definitely see BW/WM couples from time to time. "
I agree with that. Detroit itself was bad and some of the metro areas are still bad... like Downriver... but Western Wayne is decent. I suspect Macomb and Oakland counties are OK. I live out in Washtenaw and Ann Arbor is very swirl friendly, no surprise at that though. We need to start a Detroit area BBW group...

@kia " A woman that is attractive and healthy, has an education, a job, is a good cook, gives good sex regularly, can have a good conversation. Did I miss anything. Isn't that what most men look for in a wife. Love to hear from the men on this one."
Sweet and loving too....and.... ah....all of those are what I look for in a mate....
@kia "Black men complain that BW think that just because they earn a good living, can cook, and sexes them down on the regular that they deserve a ring. LOL,most men of any race except DBR's would love to have a wife like that that's smart enough to earn a decent living, and loves to cook and sex. "
Damn, honey, do you HAVE to go to work again? Why the hell did you cook that nice meal when I wanted frozen chicken nuggets and tater tots? And do we HAVE to? I am getting tired of that stuff.... and I have a headache...
