I’m often befuddled by the fact that BB&W has almost 1,000 You Tube subscribers, and I wonder who the heck are all these people watching. Imagine how tickled I was when I got this note today. (italics and emphasis are mine–put there so you don’t miss it!)
I am a 33 year old european guy from The Netherlands and I stumbled upon you YouTube videos a few days ago, and just want to say that I enjoy watching your videos. I ordered the book “Swirling: How to Date, Mate, and Relate Mixing Race, Culture, and Creed” a few days before finding your channel, so it was funny to find out you were one of the writers. Because I was like “I want that book they talk about in the videos”, and then “hey, but didn’t I order that already” lol 🙂 It arrived today, and started reading it immediately. It looks more aimed at black women, but I like to read it anyway. So, I know more about it from their perspective too. I started (online) dating black women about a year ago, but I was much longer attracted to black women, only I didn’t act on it I guess because I would be the first in my family to date a black woman/man. I started using AfroRomance and had contact with a couple of nice women, one of them for about 7 months. She was living in Uganda and I tried to get her a visa to visit my country, but that was denied and the appeal too. So, not so long ago we decided to stop and stay friends. Now I am trying to find black women in my area, that makes it much easier to meet each other. The more I see black women, the more beautiful I think they are, and I am at a point that I think about dating only black women (with the intend of getting married some day). I hope a lot of women will read your book, so they will notice that sweet IT guy who is talking with them at the copy machine lol 😉
One thing that stood out is that this European man has always been attracted to black women, but had some reservations because he would be the first in his family to explore these types of relationships. He joined AfroRomance.com so that he could readily meet black women in his area who might be interested in him. The last thing is that the more he’s opened his mind to interracial dating, the more beautiful he finds black women who are now his primary preference.
Rest assured, this phenomenon is happening more and more and non-black men get the memo that black women are open to dating them. Contrary to what the naysayers want you to believe, many, many, many non-black men haven’t necessarily thought black women were romantically interested in them, and now that they do, they’re doing their information gathering and buying books like “Swirling.”
So ladies and gents, DO NOT SLEEP ON SWIRLING! Not only is it an excellent source on all things swirling related, we have an “in” at AfroRomance (and who knows? you might run in to Mr. Netherlands). Buy a copy of “Swirling” and you’ll get three months free with DateWhoYouWant.com, a subsidiary of AfroRomance and InterracialDatingCentral.
So…what are you waiting for? Buy it already, and get your interracial mack on! 😉
