What does swirling actually mean?

Swirling dating is a phrase that is used to describe a relationship between 2 people of different ethnicities. It is commonly used in the African American community when a black person dates a white man or woman. The phrase isn’t strictly limited to black and white dating only.  It also applies when a black person dates a Latino or even Asian. So basically, like the swirl on an ice cream of different colors, swirling just means interracial dating.

In today’s culture, more and more singles are “getting their swirl on” if you would like to put it that way. As a matter of fact, more black women are doing it. People are embracing the culture of finding love despite race. And as the numbers of interracial couples increase so is the acceptance of mixed love.

Yes and No.

Sadly, there are people who still see this type of dating as controversial. Couples do get harassed or are given harsh stares by those that still live with the “stone age mentality”.  However, all is not lost. Everyone is allowed to have their own dating preferences and choices. Plus, if your goal is to find someone who loves and respects you, then the ethnicity shouldn’t really matter. We cant choose whom we fall in love with or whom we are attracted to.

So why has swirling become important lately?

Interracial dating has its perks. People are being connected beyond ethnic borders hence promoting racial cohesion. Won’t it be nice to know that you are living in a world where we can all just get along? It’s a beautiful thing.

This kind of mixing of cultures is also a great learning experience. You get to enjoy different foods, music, and traditions in the process.

With the rise in interracial dating sites, this type of dating increases people’s dating pool. The chances of meeting the love of your life have increased. So you no longer have to limit yourself to men or women of your own race. Love comes in different colors these days.

How can you increase the chances of success?

Always approach dating with an open mind. It is meant to be fun. Don’t pay attention to people’s stereotypes about people of other races. Let your goal be to make meaningful connections with great individuals.

Don’t approach mixed dating as an experiment. Potential mates will read right through it and reject you. Always steer clear of making race comments about your mate.

Remember, for swirling dating to work, be with a person you can form a genuine connection with, real love and respect.
