I need to find the person that has been spreading this terrible rumor. Who is she, and what was she thinking. First of all Ethiopian MEN ARE BLACK MEN TOO. It is probably one of the most annoying things to hear when I hear people say “Ethiopian women only date Ethiopian men”. Who is spreading this rumor?
Maybe an Ethiopian Woman was trying to get out of talking to some weirdo that was approaching her and she told him Ethiopian women only date Ethiopian men. Maybe it was her escape out of a bad relationship. Either way the rumor has spread.
Who Knows what the reasons behind it is, but there is a presumption amongst most people that Ethiopian women are stuck up, snooty, think their better than everyone else, and won’t date anyone outside of their culture. In all seriousness, by limiting myself to one ethnicity out of an entire race is stupid. YES, I am open to any man of any race, of any ethnicity, of any cultural background. So long as I am 1. Attracted to him, 2. He treats me with the same respect, dignity, love, and care as my father has given me in my life (I believe a woman’s father sets the standard for her expectations of the man she marries, therefore my standards are pretty high), 3. I need him to support me, not financially but mentally and emotionally, and 4. I need to know that no matter what at the end of the day I’m the last thing on his mind and when the sun rises I’m the first thing he thinks about. I want real love. Love is not embedded in a person’s race, ethnicity, or cultural background. Love is about the persons character, spirit, and soul.
Do I have preferences? Of Course! Every Ethiopian Girl would probably say that ideally she wants to marry an Ethiopian boy. It would make a lot of things about merging lives so much easier. He would already be familiar with my culture, he would automatically love the Ethiopian food, he would understand my family’s native language, and I wouldn’t have to translate. What Ethiopian American Girl has not day dreamed about a Big Extravagant Ethiopian American Wedding day. But is this realistic? I have my doubts. I’m honestly pessimistic about the whole thing. Maybe I’ll meet Mr.EthipianAmericanboy and we’ll fall in love and live happily ever after. Until then………
So Dear Ethiopian Girl that is walking around saying Ethiopian Women only date Ethiopian Men, stop spreading this terrible rumor / lie, it’s untrue. And if it’s true for yourself, then just say that YOU as an individual person, not the representative of all Ethiopian women, do not date Black men.
Just another Ethiopian American Girl.
