However, if you can embrace these differences, then your romance can flourish. Fetish assumes that you are turned on by certain characteristics or things, such as people with a fetish for pantyhose or scat or whatever. It is a bit difficult to define the difference between a fetish and attraction.
You might even learn something too by stepping outside your cultural norms. We can’t help it if we have a preference for one type of look, such as one guy being attracted to skinny women with blond hair whereas another prefers curvy women with darker tones.
If you are willing to deal with these hurdles, you might also find that there are many benefits to interracial dating too.
Our society likes to promote some sort of colorblind model as a cure for racism.
For example, one interracial couple in Houston said they stopped going to country music concerts together.
A fetish is purely sexual and the person will be attracted to ALL people of that race/appearance regardless of the person.
And, yes, it still happens to interracial couples today.
The fact that the term “interracial dating” exists just proves that it is an issue to date outside your race.
Or, depending on your race, a white girl, Asian girl, Latina girl…
Dating is hard enough without stepping outside what is considered “normal” by society’s standards of what couples should look like.
In its effort to show we are all equal, it has done its best to ignore the fact that . This can also be seen in feminism, in which some feminists are so gung-ho about proving that they can do anything a man can do (there are even devices which let women pee standing up) that they ignore significant differences like that women’s bodies are built for childbearing, hormonal differences, and body structure differences.
