Dating outside the box

A friend of mine wanted to know if I had any tips for meeting and dating white guys.  I’ve been known to date men from many different ethnic backgrounds, while she has recently decided to date “other.” I honestly don’t do anything differently, though. I generally meet and date them the same as I do other men.

I have found that when you find people who share the same interests, you are likely to meet someone that sparks an interest, regardless of their background. That is when you sort of let things happen naturally.  I did encourage her to venture to different “scenes” and add some variety to her social calendar.

Do you find it hard to date outside your box? Do you think we should meet and date people from different backgrounds to increase our dating options?

When it comes to race, religion, or political beliefs, how different are you willing to date?

God did not tell us who not to fall in love with when it comes to race. I am only on page 2 so I am still catching up with today’s blog. My wifes name on here is Desert Butterfly not Letitia and she would not play those type of games.

Since we are slow in her today I’ll offer my thoughts on a few of the AJC Front page topics –

Pevert Nurse – Dayum how bad off do you have to be to fondle and molest patients under anethesia. Not only that but how incredibly dumb do you have to be to record it on your cell phone. We have another contestant for the bump bussing contest in prison.

Sneiderman – i believe based on what I’ve read that she had something to do with her husband getting offed. They playing it close to the vest BUT had that been Boomquisha she woulda been a prime suspect in the media from day 1.

Afternoon
I see we’re not on topic anymore, probably because it’s a no brainer.

ARed That dude at work got what he deserved. The whole “once you go black…” is so corny…just like the white dudes and good credit. He left himself wide open.

They playing it close to the vest BUT had that been Boomquisha she woulda been a prime suspect in the media from day 1.
WillieD You see she put her house up for sale for 1 mil. She’s got enough cash to lawyer up for a little while.

@swiss ~ you should be ashamed holding all that in and spouting at the rooftop in 3 secs (lol).

@Fion ~ sorry, but she’s doing the right thing. You see, the humanity of it all is you really expecting her to sit around until you showed up. :wink: Never underestimate the fiestiness of a Sag!…She said “Bunk this and bounced!” :lol: :lol:
