The Other Side

Since I am still trying to get that damn man out of my mind and heart, I don't think that I am gonna be dating anyone anytime soon.

But I do know that I will be dating sometime in the future. But what's been on my mind is that I think that when I do start again, I will probably open myself up to dating someone who is not of my own race. In my 28 years of life, this has never happened because I didn't want it to. I only wanted to date, have relationships with, fuck, be with Black men. It's not that I am prejudice (maybe I am), but it seems that I am only interested in Black men. But lately, I have been thinking that I should broaden my horizons and see what the others have to offer.

When I say that I will open myself to dating outside my race, it DOES NOT mean that I am giving up on Black men. Yes, I have had bad experiences, but I would never "give up" on black men. I think that the reason that I have never dated a person of another race is that I know that I want to spend my life with another Black man. So it seems kind of pointless to date a non-black person. I can't imagine being close to person who doesn't share my culture, traditions, and way of life.

But I also know that I don't want to be like one of those Black men who feels like they have to have a non-black person on their arm to feel complete or better than everyone else. And please don't deny that those people exist. I absolutely hate black men who refuse to date other black men. And I also hate those white men who only "date" black men. If I dated a dude of another race, I would always be wondering if he only wants me because I am Black.

You know what? I change my mind. I'm gonna stick to my Black brothas. I don't see a point in trying something else when I know what I really want. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Right?

Men are men. If you have a preference and desire a black brotha, then stick with what you know you want.

At least you seem willing to open the door for other options if they present itself

Well well, if u don't date anybody BECAUSE u have to get somebody out of ur mind, it probably ain't gonna work u know because... u're gonna be thinking about the fact that u have to forget about him which of course, will make u think about him, and... that's not what you want, or is it ?

Personally, I don't believe in " goin through hell to change people" to make a relationship work (people r usually ready to do somethin when THEY decide that it's time for them to do it, y would u sit around and wait ?).

But i dunno all the details about ur particular story so i say do what feels right for you bro but just try to think about u first... don't go through any unecessary pain...
