Latin men and black women dating
Disclaimer: my answer's based on my personal lived experience, for what it's worth.
My specific Latina-ness happens to be Mexican, so that may color my observations.
“Puppy Dog” eyes is what the teacher would say as he would pout at her, as he did when he hoped to get a pass for incomplete homework, and it sometimes worked.
Brown, liquid, eyes, hovered beneath dark eye lashes and full dimples in his cheek when he smiled.
My male cousins also tend to primarily date and/or have married other Hispanic women.
Aside from one male cousin who makes it a habit to date Filipino ladies and myself, everyone in my generation in my family has been clannish and stuck with being with other Hispanics.
I knew we were doomed back in first grade, though, when I tore out a page from my favorite coloring book to give to him, and he happily took it and then commenced to color the entire thing black.
Since I don’t recall anything Earth shattering as I write this now, I presume life moved on after the coloring book incident, and I survived second grade without too much of a hitch.I know someone who goes out of her way to only date Black men, because they're her type, and I know others who only date white dudes.A close friend of mine happens to love Asian men, and my friends have joked that my type is penis because when it comes to my dating preferences, all it seems I care about is that they happen to be male.Short Answer: Some do, some don't, varies lady by lady.
Long Answer: In the more traditional families I know, there's a strong impetus to date within the Latino community, because as relatives are wont to remind you, it's important to be with someone who "gets us." It'd be ideal to be with someone with some sort of Mexican roots, but anyone who is Latino is considered a fine runner-up because the assumption is they'll at least understand Spanish and be familiar with the food and culture.Later on we would talk about what would become of us, grown, in high school and away from these halls that echoed when you spoke.
