Dating between black women
Did I really want to contribute to businesses that felt they had no choice but to cater to people’s racial biases to stay afloat? I’ve logged off from the handful of sites and apps I had been using.
But I have not lost hope in the online-dating industry.
I don't choose a man based on the color of his skin. That's what we should be focusing on, not what color, but how happy someone makes you. If you feel like someone is not treating you right because of your race, then you have to get out and find someone who will. And no matter what race he is, he will love me as the African American girl I am.
I don't even understand why race is such a problem in the dating world, anyway. I kept thinking that because I was black no guy would love me, but I had to learn that guys in my past couldn't handle me.
I wanted to be in a relationship with a guy who loved me and treated me like I was his number one.
I need to have a strong guy who can stick up for me and be proud dating a black girl.
A few clicks put online dating in the rear-view mirror. Regardless of the type of app or site, online dating works better for some than others — a lot better, in fact.
Chief among them was that I did not want to participate in platforms where users are given tools to discriminate based on race.
Proud not only in front of his family and friends but also in front of the world.
I just wanted to be loved and have someone who treated me right.
