Black women and dating 2016
They expect me to be dating an African American man and are taken aback when I state otherwise.
This is something that I have grown use to this last year with my boyfriend.
Sometimes this pairing leads to an awkward exchange.
This trend also makes Black People Meet, Soul Swipe and BAE (Before Anyone Else), a new dating app specifically made for people of color, absolutely necessary.
R&B singer Robin Thicke recently admitted during an interview with Essence Magazine that dating his African American wife Paula Patton for more than 18 years was one of the driving forces behind his successful music career.
Although Thicke’s wife Paula is bi-racial, he continued by confessing that he in fact has never dated a white woman.
Thicke also stated that he’s broken relationship with his mother and Paula’s with her father allows them to lean on each other (and their adorable son Julian Fuego who was born this past April) for love and support.
Paula, who is currently promoting her biggest role to date starring alongside Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible, Ghost Protocol, is not only known for her skills as an actress but her slamming body as well.
