From our good friend Eathan at IDateWhite.com. I have met a few black women who do frequent and enjoy sport bars (and not just to meet guys) … but I definitely feel him on this one.
On a side note … the Thursday Feature Suggestion Box is drying up. I know there are plenty of bloggers out there with good stuff the already wrote. Why not let your old thoughts be reborne … email me at [email protected] with links to your old posts. And don’t just tell me your site … specific stuff that you liked!
Since I met ZC22 two weeks ago, I’ve noticed some major social differences between black women and white women. ZC22 held a lot of promise when I originally met her. Besides the normal things that I look for in a woman, she just seemed really cool. We’ve been texting back and forth several times. We can’t seem to find enough common ground for a date. It seems that we are on the opposite side of the social world. She wants to do 1 of 2 things. Go dancing or go to dinner. I don’t mind doing either one of those things, but not immediately. Not on the 1st date. I want to do something totally different. I want to go out for drinks (happy hour), or possibly go out to watch the game.
This started a conversation among a group of my friends ( men and women). I’ve come to realize something that I’ve never paid any attention to before. Black women don’t go out to the sports bar to watch football. I’ve asked several people from different parts of the country and they all agree. It’s not a regular practice among black women. Most of them will watch the game at home or at some one’s house. I can’t believe I never noticed it.
Over the years, I regularly watch sports at a sports bar/restaurant. I watch football, basketball, hockey and UFC. I’ve noticed there are plenty of black men there. I’ve always noticed the white women there, but I didn’t realize there are very few black women. One of my good friends mentioned, they would rather go shopping. I’m not sure if he’s right. I know they’re not cheering where I watch the game.
The one thing I’m starting to realize is this is one of the reasons I began to date white women. I’m a pub type of guy. I enjoy going out to watch the game. I enjoy eating wings, burgers, french fries and having a cold beer. I have fun screaming at the TV with 200 other strangers. I enjoy running around the room giving hi-five to anyone around when the Cowboys score a touch down. That’s what I enjoy during football season and the NBA playoffs. Of course, the women that I see when I’m out watching sports are white women.
I’ve always heard women wonder why black men date interracial, this is a good place to look. It starts with something as simple as your social scene. The black women aren’t doing some of the things their white counterparts are doing.
Why do you think there is such a big difference? Is it because they are cheap and don’t want to spend the money? Am I the only one that has noticed this in the past?
