Dark women dating

By continuing to use this website without changing your settings, you consent to our use of cookies.As I waited for my Tinder date to arrive, I got deeper and deeper into his social media.Once we had parted ways, I longed for something casual again. Once I got to swiping, I was reminded that casual didn’t mean simple.

Everything was going well until my date went from talking about previous relationships to mansplaining why historically Black colleges and universities were racist, and lamenting that there aren’t enough white dancehall artists.This was just one of the sobering experiences that made me realize that as a Black woman, Tinder had all the same issues I face walking through the world, just on a smaller screen.This manifests in many ways, from harsh stereotyping to hypersexualization and the policing of our appearance.It’s as if I had instantly been reduced to an instrument for sex, rather than a multi-dimensional person.In other online dating experiences, my blackness was reduced to a pickup line.
