We all have different ideas on what we find attractive. Some people prefer short folks or people with blue eyes. Other people like a particular ethnicity or race. Take my friend, who we'll call Erin. She's Korean-American, and adamantly refuses to marry a non-Korean because she wants her parents and future boyfriend to be able to communicate.
But since we met 3 years ago, Erin has only gone for black guys. All of her recent boyfriends have been black. And she has flat-out told me that she doesn't like Korean guys.
My father is another example. When I was debating on what to major in, I asked him how he chose his Asian History major. His response? Because he liked Asian girls
. In retrospect, I didn't really need or want to know that about my father. But my mother is Japanese, so I guess it worked out for him.
Since I'm half-Japanese, people often ask me if I like Asian guys, and I do. My sister, however, hates them. We think it's because she's 5'7 and I barely scrape 5'4.
Japanese guys, on the whole, are kind of feminine. They're skinny, don't really work out, and have delicate features. They also average about my sister's height. So, while I find them feminine, they're still a few inches taller than me so I think they're cute. But they're too girly for my sister
That said, I don't prefer Asian guys, or any other race for that matter. At least, I don't think. I've hooked up with people all over the spectrum. But then again, all of my boyfriends have been Hispanic, so maybe I do have a pattern.Do you have a ethnic/racial preference in romantic or sexual partners?
