Tips For Online Interracial Dating

Interracial online dating is popular and successful. A unique challenge in interracial dating is not how the two people of different ethnicities feel about each other, but how others react to the couple. Clearly, introducing a new boyfriend or girlfriend of a different race or ethnicity introduces another dimension. Talk openly and honestly with each other from the beginning about what you may be facing as a couple in terms of friends' and families’ reactions. There is no easy solution to prepare for prejudices. However, an honest and mutually supportive dialogue can help a couple feel they are working together as a team to deal with these challenges. Here are the important tip for interracial dating online.

• Guard your identity. Remain anonymous until you feel safe and ready to explore other options. Don't include your real name or city of residence within your email address, username or interracial personals profile.

• Go slow. Take your time getting comfortable talking online. When you are ready, move to phone conversations providing only.

your first name and cell phone number. Don't let anyone rush you into meeting or giving out more information than you want to share.

• Don't use a sexy name. It will get attention, but not the type you'd like.

• Trust your instincts. If something doesn't feel right, or you feel threatened, immediately end all contact with the person.

• Block any member who behaves in a harassing or offensive manner and report the behavior to the Dating Site.

• Ask for a photograph.

• Use separate e-mail and IM accounts for online dating.
