Dating is an incredible art that requires thoughtfulness and consideration of the people involved. In order to date successfully, you need to be able to think outside of yourself and understand the person you are dating on a more meaningful level. However, when you are dating a person of a different race, there are a few things you should keep in mind. We are not generalizing or stereotyping the type of black women you might encounter. Still, instead, we are making you aware of the social differences that occur in black communities that alter the way they date.

If you've never been part of an interracial relationship or have never dated a strong black woman, then there are certain things you need to know that will probably change the way you build relationships. As always, there are exceptions to the rule and there will be women who do not fit into these categories, but it is up to you to decide what is appropriate or not.


When dating someone of a different race for the first time, many people become highly nervous on dates because they are worried about offending their partner. It is good to be considerate of your partner, especially in the United States, where discrimination against the black community and other minorities is still widespread. However, overdoing it will put you in an unfavorable position. You may appear nervous, uninterested, or it may seem like all you see when dating this woman is her skin color. Relax, talk to her like a normal human being and think before you speak.

Attitudes of other people

Everyone has an opinion and loves to share it, so you need to be prepared for insensitive comments about your relationship. Many people seem to think that someone of their race is the only one they should date, so you may receive many negative comments and jokes about your couple. You can let it go and continue to enjoy the company of your lovely partner, or you can let it affect your relationship and ultimately lose someone you appreciate.

Be yourself

It might sound like the oldest dating cliche, but that's because it works! People find out when you are fake and don't want to date someone who can't be open about their opinions. You don't need to 'act black' or behave a certain way to attract a strong, independent black woman as most of the time, they will think you are an idiot for thinking that you had to act that way to attract them in the first place.

Be considerate

As with any date, understand that you are going in blind and that you do not know anything about your potential partner. No matter how much you've texted before you go on your date, you're never going to have complete confidence from the start. Understand that if you are going to mention race on your date, you are playing with fire as you don't know what they have struggled with in their life or how they have been treated due to the color of their skin. You don't need to be her mother, but keep a thoughtful and sensitive approach when discussing sensitive topics.

Focus on your future

Many African American women tend to come from more socially conservative, religious, and family-oriented homes, which means that they have grown up in a social circle that has emphasized planning for the future. Showing the woman that you love that you are prepared to think about your future TOGETHER and that you are taking steps to integrate your life with others can be incredibly attractive to a black woman.


Although many black women hope they can plan their lives with their partners, they still need their space and time to be the wonderful person they are. Understand that a strong, independent black woman doesn't require you all the time and that they are happy to do their thing and be their own person.


Any successful relationship needs good communication skills as a foundation, but it is more than that for many black women. Your ability to communicate your feelings, ambitions, passions, and what you see for the future of your relationship is crucial to a passionate black woman. This shows her that you care about the state of your relationships and are ready to fight for their continuation. 

Use our tips as a guide for your dating experience! However, you should understand that you have to adapt to your woman's needs and desires if you are going to be able to date successfully. Treat your woman with respect, kindness, and love, and soon you will find yourself in a beautiful relationship with an amazing black woman.
