40 and over interracial dating

Since Black women have been hesitant to date interracially for so long, I do consider it “progress” that many of them are discovering that different races of men are willing to love and cherish them. Candice: Something I’ve also noticed lately is that more of my Black female friends have begun to look outside their race specifically due to their frustrations with dating Black men.

We have layers, and like all women, we are complicated and splendid creatures.Learn more about Christelyn via her blog, Beyond Black & White, and check out her book, Swirling: How to Date, Mate, and Relate Mixing Race, Culture, and Creed.Nowadays more women prefer going out with older men than young guys and it’s not only because men over 40 are usually good providers.Candice: There seems to be a stronger reaction to Black men who date outside their race than Black women who do the same. But when men do the same, it’s often seen as a betrayal. Christelyn: Actually, I’ve experienced that in the reverse.Historically, Black men have been dating and marrying interracially at higher rates than Black women for the last 40 years.If she wants to be married, have children, etc., the numbers just aren’t in her favor to remain exclusive to Black men.

Why is it “problematic” to open yourself up to other men who might love you?Candice: Another question I get a lot from Black women who are looking to date outside their race is how can they put themselves in the position to meet a man?Even in my own experience I feel like men either assume that I don’t date outside my race or they have hangups about how they’d introduce me to their friends/family (which presents another issue).But how would you respond to women who feel this way?Christelyn: Black women have a unique set of challenges in the dating market.No one is suggesting Black women avoid black men altogether. We’ve been trying to “work through our issues” for over a century.
