i think you would find that vast vast majority (99% i'm sure) like and date ethiopian men. I have kissed a girl (now woman since I'm older) that was of ethiopian background, but we're talking about someone who was raised in a North American envirnoment and context. It's not that I at the age of 15 had money, it's that there are a lot of me (white people are about 81% of the Canadian population) here, and I am the face that you see in the media.

To elaborate on this point, consider how many figures in entertainment you see that are white, also taking into consideration that most people in popular entertainment are attractive.

Annecdotally, there are women in the diaspora and Ethiopia proper that like white men, but it's surely not a majority, or else you would see more interracial dating in the diaspora community. It's there, but it's not that common. There are other reasons that people could come up with, and money is one. Another is the (untrue) perceptions that white men are more faithful, less likely to strike their women (that's a culture wide phenomena not limited to white people in european and eurpean offshoot nations). The best way to find out for yourself is start with the diaspora in your area, and ask them who has dated a white person, and who prefers a white person to an ethiopian. I suspect that you'll find that even of thos who have dated white (say 1/10 - 1/20), you'll find that most of them will still say they prefer dating in their culture, or have no preference, because we are all taught the importance of our own communities as children, and it sticks.

To complete my annecdote from earlier, that girl I kissed has dated nothing but ethiopian men (2 to be precise) since the end of high school, so her dating or experimenting with people like me ended when she had access to more ethiopian people.

you might be right because there are some Ethiopian ladies who married whites and live good life, but I believe in other way Whites like Ethiopian women because of their BEAUTY.

You can find beauty in any ethnicity in any place. We are all so similar that its only sensible that the beautiful among us are beautiful to many of us.

I certainly adore how ethiopian women look but thats just me. I would imagine that most white people married to ethiopians, regardless of gender, occur from members of the Diaspora community because of the simple fact that there are more Diaspora ethiopians in European and Europeanesque countries than the other way around (there's no flood of say Belgians migrating to Addis Abeba). I would further add that income is not the factor in most of these associations, simple exposure has much more to do with it. In my experience in this city, those that are Ethiopian and have gravitated towards the rest of the community in the city date exclusively other ethiopians, while those that have been dropped isolated into white or mixed ethnicity communities, intermingle more freely.

This is true. they think that they have to much money. what a shame! these most beautiful girls should try to be strong and look for another alternative to get money and improve their lives. The sad thing is that it is not the poor who is looking after the´father dady but those who has better life and access to meet the old dogs. Aye emama Ethiopia....Ayatochachin aysmu...

It is true that Ethiopia women like white men because they are very stupid

Again, you guys aren't citing any evidence to suggestyour claim is true. If most ethiopian women were dating white men, there would be 20-40 million gay men in ethiopia (because that would be the only option). Since that's not the case you have t reexamine the entire premise. Of the very small number of ethiopian women that do date europeans, what are their motivations. I'm sure some really do marry for only economic reasons and make it work. I know of one personally (through someone else, so I know of them rather than know them). And I can't really fault that woman for making that decision because it is clearly an enviable option in comparison to certain other eventualities. However, I would propose again that most ethiopian women who do date white men do so in the context of already living in a mostly white country where there are a lot of white men around, and consequently, date these men. Again though, I would imagine thatmost you see still date within their own culture because of the strength of ethiopian culture and society.

It's worth remembering that Ethiopia has a much different history with the "west" than other african nations due to its resistance to colonialism and conquest, save for the fascist Italian occupation of 1937-41. While it has seen Europeans as occupiers, it has also seen them as liberators, and in no way can the experience bee seen as in bitter terms as the people of the Belgian Congo or West African Coast do (or pick any other country). I think with less mistrust there, the lack of historical animosity makes it easier somewhat for that cultural exchange to happen.

One could argue that the grinding poverty in the rest of africa, allows for desparate people to conclude that white people make good mates (if you don't know history, you can't be angered by it), I think that the relative stability and integrity of Ethiopia, as well as it's natural evolution as a nation state (I am aware of the cultural unrest between groups, so this isn't a catch-all), lends itself to people making relationships with outsiders more out of a position of self confidence than any other country on the continent, include the Arabs of North Africa.

I have always thought the opposite was true. Most of the time when I see habeshoch in interracial relationship it is nech set ena habesha wond. I can count with one hand the times I have seen the reverse, maybe its a regional thing.

Who knows/who cares and honestly the habesha men (myself included) do the same thing and date other ethnicities so one can't just scorn the women. There are 75million of us so obviously there will be some that are attracted to other races and that is normal. But like other posters mentioned, the majority in the end like to be with someone from their own country and that can be said with any group of people not just ethiopians.

...yes this is because you reside in ethiopia. the white males get a little nervous if they walk around with ethiopian females on ethiopian soil. but when they are on teir territory they can walk around with ethiopian females without having this insecurity...ethiopian females indeed have a lust for white males...I observed that too. but often they are als into blacks. i think that is natural that women don't care whom they marry when they are out of their country. since ethiopians are not muslims they cant force them to stick with their own :)

99% of Abesha ladies go out with Abesha guys. Ethiopians/Eritreans don't mix well with others. There is no statistics and is basically anecdotal. I have seen lots of Abesha ladies with a lot of African American men, specially with educated and well to do black men. Hell even my wife told me she liked African American men, made me feel useless. I told her it was not funny.

I have seen some Abesha ladies with whites and Abesha guys with white, African American, Asian and Hispanic women.

I dated lots of white, Asian, African American and Hispanic prostitutes but that's besides the point.

As far as, we are concerned why bother with a chicken wing, while you can have the whole chick.........hahahahah...get it as to the reason why we stay away from KFC
