The Pros & Cons: Dating White Men
Everything You've Ever Wanted to Know About Interracial Dating as a Black Woman
Let's face it--black women often experience unique challenges when it comes to dating. We statistically have the lowest marriage rates and the highest divorce rates. And when it comes to interracial dating, we're often in uncharted territory. According to the latest Pew Research, black women are the least likely to marry interracially (12 percent) while our counterparts swirl at twice the rate (24 - 30 percent).
Some of this can be explained. Black women face social consequences that have held them back, and often feel guilt about dating men of other races--particularly white men. There are misconceptions and hesitation on both sides, with white men often believing that black women aren't interested in dating them, and fear from black women that white men's romantic interest is somehow worthy of suspicion.
But here's the truth: there are TONS of white men dating and marrying black women, more so than any time in our history. In fact, the rates of intermarriage has increased 33% since I started my research for my book, Swirling: How to Date, Mate & Relate, Mixing Race, Culture & Creed. What is more, stats reflect that marriages between black women and white men last longer than ANY other intermarriage combination!
If you've always been curious about interracial dating but have been plagued by doubts, this course is for you. If you're new to interracial dating and need tips on how to best maximize your options, this course is for you. If you're in serious relationship with a white man and contemplating marriage, again--this course is for you.
