I'm actually attracted to different skin tones. I'm very light and love the sight of a dark skinned woman up against me.

Whats good about it is the color contrast, and the fact people are being open and accepting. Whats bad about it is... well nothing is bad about it unless your just prejudice i'd think...

I'm in an interracial relationship (I'm white, he's black, in the most simplest terms), and there are no different upsides in comparison to dating someone of your same skin color. But, there is a downside... background. My significant other and I have differences in how we were brought up, and it's more extreme than someone who's lived in a different state. Different cultures leads to different worldviews and different outlooks, which leads to very different ideas on how to live, eat, and breathe. It can be nervewrecking at times, but you work through it, just like you work through every difference between two people in a relationship.

Oh, and, another downside is possible prejudice from others. I've received some nasty looks and remarks (from both sides of the racial divide) on dating a black man.

I've never been in an interracial relationship so until recently I didn't realize there are still so many people opposed to these relationships. Just recently I read an article about a poll in Mississippi where 46% of Republicans and 18% of Democrats in the state think interracial marriages should be illegal. For both groups 14% said they didn't know and you just know at least a few of these people were thinking that it should be illegal but they didn't want to sound racist.

I'm sorry that you still have to put up with this in 2011.

I don't really think this should be a pro/con thing. Skin color shouldn't be factor. If there were more accepting people in this world, it wouldn't be. Love is love, no matter what. There shouldn't be any limitations to this. Personally , I do not see a difference, we are all human. Just like any type of relationship there is always going to be good and bad, advantage or disadvantage.

My SO and I have a similar situation. I grew up and remained middle to upper middle-class, she was raised with fewer advantages and always feels a need to be frugal. She is caucasian, I am half asian/half hispanic. Although we have the situational and race differences, they pale to the age difference of 20+ years. For us, none of these are an issue, and in fact, we find that some of our differences are actually an advantage - I have more life experience and can help her through new situations, she is more aware of new things and can help me understand new stuff, I earn more and can provide more financial security than she has previously experienced, etc. However, the issue that we seem to deal with most often, is other's reaction to our age difference...

Technically there is nothing wrong with it, and if you love them go for it, but the down fall is the stigma that some people in the community place on those that they see in an interracial dating situation. Other draw backs might be cultural issues and traditions that could pose a problem for the couple and their families.

O man really? Not liking it is one thing but wanting it to be illegal is too much! I've only dated white guys but i've been attracted to a few people of color. What matters most is personality not skin color or race

I'm all for interracial dating. Love is love. I REALLY wish people would live and let live, though. It's a shame that people out there still care so much.

One of the best things about it to me is to see the skin contrast. I think it's a beautiful thing...
Also, it's like we're endlessly fascinated with one another. We couldn't be more different, yet alike at the same time.

The only bad thing about it is when these girls give me violent looks in public just because I'm with him.

I'm all for interracial dating becasue I'm not close minded. I think people should be able to love or like who they want. I live in STL and it is very segregated. I rarely see interracial couples and if I do it's mainly black men with white women. I would like to move somewhere were people don't see color which I know will be nearly impossible. Some postives of interracial dating would be the blending of two races, and all the learning experiences that goes with it. Family rejection is a con and constant stares is an issue but other than that interracial dating isn;t any different than dating inside ones race.

I agree, I also like the contrast between my SO skin color and my own.
