Would you be offended if you were told that you would be the perfect boyfriend/ girlfriend if you were a different race?
Why would I care? A compliment is a compliment, and just because they aren't identical to me race-wise doesn't mean they can't be very attractive, or a very good+loving wife.
Well unless they were male, then they couldn't be a a loving wife.
How is it a compliment?
Oh wait I misread it, I thought it was talking about inter-racial relationships, not saying I should change my race XD
In that case, no, it isn't exactly a compliment.
Misread the question is all.
Not at all. I might be disappointed though. And even though I might not be perfect I am worth a try ;)
Offended that somebody let a monkey out of a zoo and let it mingle with me. Especially since it started flinging poop.
Top tier-b8, guaranteed replies XD
Okay isn't personality supposed to be the only factor when dating someone? I mean someone may look nice now but if they're your soulmate they won't look the same when they're a grandma
I'd be offended pretty much the same way id be with any other "why you've been rejected" statement.
No. Most have their own personal preference. Why would I want to be with someone who prefers not to be with me? I would simply find someone who loves me for who I am, & I her. That has been my privilege for over 30 years.
Back handed compliment, of sorts.
I would be appalled at your blatant racism and ignorance,but not offended.
People have preferences, I certainly have mine, and if they don't find me appealing because of my race then so be it. We don't have much control over the "type" of people we find attractive.
I usually don't get offended.
Nah, I don't take offense that easily. Be more like 'What?'
I would be offended, not personally, but for my race as a whole.
I guess I feel like there are so many odd things people use as artificial barriers for dating. Job, Education, Accent, Hair Color, Weight, Height, Religion, Style, Athletic ability, etc etc.
That I wouldn't be offended by race being my disqualifier anymore than anything else. I think being rejected on any criteria is telling of the person, but at the same time we all have preferences.
when I was younger I def would have been. however, luckily as I've gotten older I'm able to internalize other people's shortcomings less and less.
I hope you realize this is about them, not you, even though it was directed at you.
I definitely wouldn't associate with that person anymore. If my race isn't good enough for you to date then you're not good enough of a person for me to be friends with.
You mean as in a dog or a cat? Yeah I think I would be a little offended.
Whatever floats your goat...
Disappointed maybe, but not offended. Just another one not worth my time scratched off the list.
I was recently told this and at first I didn't take offense to it because I figured "to each his own" but then thinking about it if I am what your looking for with exception of color why would that matter.
That's crazy! I'd take you out in a heartbeat!
Ahh thanks jimi
That's unacceptable, and yes I'd be offended. I would limit my interaction with that person moving forward. They've revealed quite a bit about themselves with that statement.
