View Poll Results: Is This Your First Interracial Relationship?
I have dated black men, exclusively, since I was 18. Had I not allowed myself to follow behind racist folks, just to be accepted, during my teenage years, I have no doubt that I would have been with black men my entire life. But, hey, everything happens for a purpose.
And as far as serious relationships go, the relationship I am in now is my first serious one.
They slipped briskly into an intimacy from which they never recovered.

This is my second serious relationship. I also have 1 bi-racial daughter. I am white and my first relationship was with an African. This relationship is with a Lakota Sioux Indian. I love my man and race isn't a issue for me.
this is my first interracial relationship, although it's not an issue at all. I was with my childhood sweetheart for 4 and a half years before him, he was english and he completely broke my heart, my fiance is kurdish and has shown me more respect and makes me feel more loved than i ever have done before.
Yes this is my first ir relationship ever and he is the man of my dreams! i never loved any man as much as i love him. there is no other for me he is the one. we are getting married and im so excited and i cant wait to have beautiful children with him.
This isn't my first interracial relationship. I've only every had 2 serious interracial relationship. Hopefully this will be my last. Wait who am I kidding? This is goin to be my last relationship ever! Lol
This is my first interracial relationship. I am white and my boyfriend is black. My family is somewhat ok with me dating outside my race but they do not know yet that my man is facing up to 7 years in federal prison. My family lives in Indiana while I live in Florida, which has made it a little easier to keep the detail of him being in prison from them. I'm terrified of what my family will do or say when I tell them. I don't think they will be supportive of my decision to stand by him the whole way through his sentence. I just don't think they will understand. They have never met him but sooner or later they will come to Florida to visit and want to meet him.
