    Interesting topic - hm, I kind of have a preference and then again, I kind of don't. I should explain huh! Since I came out, I lived in LA for a while, went out with different types of guys (ranging from White/Aussie to Latino/Mexicans, Asian/Chinese, Multi-racial, mixed Black guys). First guy I slept with was Chinese, then dated an Aussie guy, screw around with an Argentinean, then now I'm with an Italian (and many more cute guys in between). Lol icon_cool.gif I find all these guys to be attractive/hot in their own ways - but they all have one thing in common - a Penis lol. icon_biggrin.gif So now, I have a preference: (on personality)

    1/ Nice/stable Guys
    2/ Business type guys
    3/ Nerdy/Shy guys
    4/ Chill/Relaxed guys
    5/ Maybe bad boy/bad types

    Based on looks alone - since I'm reading/viewing a lot of Fashion magazines. (in my humble opinions).

    1/ Brazilian/South American guys are the hottest / great skin tone/bone structure.
    2/ Japanese/Asian-mixed guys came in 2nd.
    3/ Euro/White/Mixed/Mutil-racial/Black / they look great too.

    I don't/wouldn't "racially" date anyone, so that is a bit mind-boggling. I date people, not races. A novel concept, I'm sure.

    You might not realize that whites makes up a little less than 50% of the Brazilian population. Though the white poplution is more concentrated in southern Brazil. My roommate is Brazilian (Italian/German background) and he gets annoyed when people tell him "But you don't look Brazilian".

    I hardly date anyone nowadays. Most my sexual encounter are , just hook up or probably some old sex buddy that I been sharing bed with for years (one of them for almost 15 years ),. However a few guy that I go to dinner , share converstion (if you call that dating )before sex are mostly fellow Asian. Where I live they hardly any white, latino or black guy here , let alone the gay one.

    Any way I always find people of my own kind attactive (you know brown skin, spoke same language, same height etc) . There a large population of foreign Asian worker in my country , so I have been with a lot of them Indonesian, Singaporean, Japanese, Filipino , etc, though I dont really consider that dating .

    Back in my college days in United States I date a lot of white guys , latino (all kind, Pueto Rico, Brazil, Mexican) and a few black guy.

    KidnapMyAffection saidI have no preference and believe there should be none.

    True Love knows no race.


    Great statement!

    I don't play into the overly idealistic belief of not having a preference. I too am well aware that we all simply date people, doesn't mean that one phenotype doesn't do it for us better than another.

    Me personally: German
    Polish
    Italian
    Puerto Rican
    Middle eastern
    African American
    And all those wonderful halfbreeds in between

    are usually the ones that get my attention very quick. If the chemistry is right, any race will do, but statistics show that these are the people naturally bred to turn me on.

    Definitely no dating preference, but visually what turns me on tend to be:

    swarthy mediterranean types, black or mulatto, celtic types, middle eastern, east asian.

    Dating a guy is more than visual for me. Personality, intellect, and culture are the main determinants, a really good match can be from any racial group.

    I don't see color or race as having any reference to my preference in dating... I love all people equally, except fat ones, those I don't like icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    I love Malaysian Belacan (tough to find though). Asian guys tell me it is rare for a white guy to like it.

    This sounds more like some exotic dish you tried. It sucks the way you treating them like a rare zoo animal instead of human beings.

    Although I have a penchant for Asian men, I have and will continue to date men of all races and ages. The qualities I seek can be find in many.... it is NOT about race, but the quality of the individual person that matters.

    What are you talking about? How do I treat asians like a rare zoo animal? Is this going to be the new forum topics about having a racial perference. Not only are you rasict towards those you don't prefer, but now you are treating those you do prefer like "rare zoo animals" and not human beings?

    I am assume the "zoo animal" statement is because I went into details which asians I find more attractive. I am sure even guys into white guys have sub-preferences. I guess if someone prefers the Swedish blond blue eye look among whites he is treating Swedish guys as exotic Zoo animals?

    I stand by it. I never said that preferences are racist. If a black guy is only into black guys, cool for him. If you prefer Asians and latinos, hey go for it. I don't give a damn who you like.

    However, I said that you are treating these guys like a rare zoo animal the same way that people treat the rare white tiger. That is like me saying, "I love camel hump meat (tough to find) or I love these Lotus Seed Moonpies (tough to find)."

    Do you not see the "hard to find" like you are hunting for a rare breed of animal?

    Are you referring to this statement:
    "I love Malaysian Belacan (tough to find though)."

    Belacan is a spicy shrimp paste common in Malaysian cuisine. It is tough to find Belacan in the U.S.

    Not a big deal. I was just like WTF is he attacking me on. Then I realized you were taking "Malaysian Belacan" as a racial group.

    Carry on icon_wink.gif

    Yeah, I have to work on that reading the whole post. The post on the majority of these threads are essays, and there is no way in hell that I am going to read all of them.
