Addressing Feedback on Interracial Dating Blog Post

I received a little feedback in regards to my last blog post which is what I expected to happen.  One person in particular who shall remain nameless had a very strong reaction to my newfound curiosity to want to date outside of my race.

Interracial Dating: I Am Curious

I have always been a little curious as to what it would be like to date outside my race.  It is not taboo or uncommon anymore, but I just never took the plunge and now I am seriously considering it.  Growing up I didn't interact with a lot of people that were of different races.  From elementary through high school the schools that I attended were predominately black and I graduated from a historically black university (SCSU, Go Bulldogs!).

Happily Ever After

When I was younger every well known fairy tale that I read ended with...and they lived happily ever after.  Then, as I got older and interested in movies I noticed the happily ever after theme became all too common.  I have often heard people scoff at the very idea of a couple actually living a "happily ever after" type life.  Why is the mere notion of a real happily ever after relationship such a foreign concept in today's society?  I think people have the wrong idea of what one is.

Love: Feeling Or Choice?

When I was younger I thought loving someone was based on feelings, but now that I am older I believe that love is a choice.  I don't think it's a choice like I think I will have Chipotle today for lunch, but more so a subconscious act. 

Feelings are like water on the seashore, the tide comes in and goes back out again.  Unstable and fleeting.  If we, as people, only loved each other based on our feelings their would be less love in this world than it is already.  There are some instances when a person may experience choosing to love someone who may not choose to reciprocate that love.  That sucks.

Patient, Prepare and Wait

Not that I have any current prospects, but when the day comes I would like to venture into another relationship again that hopefully this time will lead down the aisle to marriage.  I will admit that I have a little trepidation about the thought of entering into another relationship.  I am fearful of investing time and it not work out the way I want.  I guess everyone feels that way to a certain extent.  Most people enter relationships with an expectation and mines is marriage.
