And if by some chance you are a member of the cougar chaser club and according to your rules I am a cougar, please don’t tell me.
I get that I’m 14 years older than this dude, but I’M NOT A COUGAR DAMMIT!
If you ask a woman the type of man she is willing to date or get into a relationship with, she’ll answer with something like: “I want a NICE GUY who comes from a good family… Women choose the men that they feel attracted to, but not necessarily the men that are good for them.
Racial fetishism has been theorized in academic discourse in relation to Freudian sexual fetishism and Marx's notion of commodity fetishism.
The term has not been largely discussed in academia, however, because Freud's theories of sexual fetishism have become so influential since the late 19th century.

This can include having strong racial preferences in dating, for example, fetishization of East Asian, Southeast Asian and to some extent South Asian women in Australasia, North America and Scandinavia is quite prevalent.
Racial fetishism also often includes the fetishization of white women, black men and women, and latino people.
“I’m open to dating women of all backgrounds,” he tells me.
