Yes I have and it was so super brief not many people knew. I wasn’t trying to hide him either. I have zero problems with dating outside of my race if the vibes are right. I have never been one to discriminate against it. All of my life I have made it clear I like cream in my coffee. I just never tasted enough cream in my coffee to make any waves. I understand some people’s issues with it and that’s their issue. So it was in college after the breakup of my college sweetheart aka my current husband. I did not go out seeking him either. He was white. He was in one of my core classes. He had a lot of the qualities I liked, tall, funny, beautiful spirit and good-looking. He had been giving me the sexy eyes for a minute and I denied him since I was in a relationship. He saw me in class with a hoody on looking all kinds of depressed and tor up. Yes tor up and sad. He swooped in with the what’s the matter talk and our conversation shifted since I was back on the market. We hung out, we studied but it never went any further because into our second official date, he stated he couldn’t date me because he was afraid of what his parents would think. He asked me to date him privately and that wasn’t then nor has that ever been my thing. So I let him go. I was upset but knew I had dodged a bullet.
I might have been able to go the distance in my mind with the college guy had he been open. But I have always been any one I dated cup of tea and I wasn’t about to turn down my melanin to suppress his dad’s preferences. So there you have it. Yes I dated outside of my race extremely briefly but I did it.
