Every so often, I get messages sent to me via the contact form. Some of those messages deal with the ethnicity of the people who I date or the person I’m with now. Some of these messages are just looking for information (curiosity) and some of them are less-than-kind (from gay men).
My dating pool has always been big, meaning that I don’t prefer anybody over another based on their culture, skin colour, religion, or something like that. I just like good people and I believe there are good people all over the world. I know there are terrible people all over the world too and a few bad ones exist. I’d be really dumb if I believed that a whole group of people are bad because of the actions of a few.
My partner isn’t my partner because he’s Indian. He’s my partner because he’s awesome. If there was an awesome white Australian guy that came along before him, then that guy would be my partner. If he was an awesome Mexican-American guy, great. It just doesn’t matter to me.
Some people don’t like the fact that I would date anybody and honestly, I don’t really get it. I knew people who totally flipped out when they found out that I’m with who I am with not. I don’t talk to them much (or at all) anymore.
Personally, I don’t understand people who only focus on one ethnic group, including their own. But I guess people have their own preferences of who they want to date, and though I find that limiting, I guess it’s none of my business. Personally, it’s just not for me.
There’s so much I could say here, but I will keep it short and sweet. Just read the first bolded text if you want to know how I think. Apologies to anybody who were misled by the title! Haha.
