Dating a smart woman
" Running around with white girls comes across as a rejection of your blackness to the women in your family, even though that wasn't the case. The girls who showed me the most attention at school were white.The world made it complicated and assumed I had an ulterior motive, and it sucks, but I understand why.They were: "I met my partner Annie on Pink Sofa in August 2013.Since then we have moved in together, started our own business and gotten engaged. We are so very grateful to the Pink Sofa for bringing us together and can't believe our luck in finding the perfect partner.Sometimes white girls hid me from their family, especially their father. I had one girlfriend in high school who strictly forbade doorbell ringing. She was not going to go through the trouble of calling attention to the fact that she was going out with a black guy.I can't say that my own mother has never asked, "When are you going to bring home a girl who looks like me?The great thing about Pink is the diversity of women.Whether you're femme, butch, bi, trans, Christian, agnostic, professional, into dining out, running or discussing current affairs there's someone for everyone on Pink Sofa.
Skepticism towards black men/white women relationships is a longstanding and well-documented part of our cultural fabric in America. I'm not a "black man" who "dates white women." I'm a person.
It was frustrating, feeling like I just couldn't find anyone I liked... Support groups and lesbian communities were not well-publicized, and hard to find unless you knew who to talk to.
I kept looking for an easy solution, but there wasn't one. There just wasn't an easy way to be a part of the community.
And there's some features like chitchat and forums where you can actively discuss all kinds of topics or nothing at all. We make it easy for you to find each other and make contact.
And we even have a free trial so you can try it out and see what you think before you go any further. My own journey is a long story - ask me about it sometime, if you see me online - but I realized early on how difficult it was for lesbians to meet each other.
By middle school, and especially high school, those expectations were even more apparent.
