After a nine-month not to give birth in secret hiatus from Rome, an opportunity arose that was convincing enough for me to return to a city that I do not love. After living in the city on and off since AprilRome has failed to make me fall in love with her. Aside from a lack of places that I enjoy hanging out in, living in Rome Italian men looking for black women a black person can be a very unpleasant experience, an unpleasantness that smacked me in my face upon my return to this fine city.

What I did not immediately remember was that seeing a black woman walking down the street, for many Italians, seemingly, is similar to a unicorn citing. So I suppose, me, dressed for my job at the UN, may seem very strange to people who conceptualize black women as sex workers. My feeling of being a unicorn is further colored by stares of children on densely packed trains, similar to my experience in Japan, and groups of people turning and staring at me when I run past them during my weekend runs in the city.

To be fair, my ex-boyfriend is Italian, but he is the least Italian, Italian that I know. Perhaps she is making me feel uncomfortable because I do not often have pleasant things to say about her. Whatever it Italian men looking for black women I can tell you this, living in Rome as a professional black woman is not something to be desired. While I love Italy for its food, wine and beautiful countryside, I think it is safe to say, and most black women in a similar position would agree with me, Rome is a great place to visit, but no place to live.

Now that I have got that out, all future posts on Rome will be positive! Thank you for your honesty. I've found that many women of color sugarcoat their experiences living abroad and I guess it's because they don't want to discourage those of us looking to make that move. Straight, no chaser. It is the only way to make an informed decision about a huge life choice.

So again. My hope for you is that Rome convinces you to like her more even if you never "fall in love" with her. Thank you for reading.

I do not sugarcoat anything so if you ever have questions about living or traveling abroad let me know. I think that those of us that are able to travel have to share our experiences with others and encourage them to go out and have their own.

I am going to start dating Italian men looking for black women in these last couple of weeks before Christmas. I am really trying to love her! Hey, loved reading this post! I am currently thinking about traveling to Bologna for a summer mission trip where I would be the only African America. A few friends brought it to my attention that I may face some discrimination.

I am from the south so I have experienced a little, but not too much. This trip is for 5 weeks and I want to make sure I know what I am getting into before I go? Was is livable? Did you feel like you needed to get away from Rome as soon as possible? Or were you able to continue to push through it and it got easier? I look forward to hearing from you! Thanks for reaching out. I lived in Rome for two years and it was mostly a great experience.

I can not advise on Bologna as I did not live there and every city in Italy is different. I do not think that you should let the possibility of discrimination deter you from doing anything in life. Because if that were the case, as a black person you should probably never leave your house. I think that you should take the opportunity to go to Bologna for five weeks and experience it for yourself! A young black women along, should I be worried or should I attempt to pack a bag and go with her.

I think your daughter will be fine! I am sure Italian men looking for black women she will love the city. Strangely I relate to this, the only difference being that nobody wants me for anything, certainly not sex, and I get the freak treatment and stares from people wherever I go in the world.

There is no place on this planet where I am comfortable or accepted. Exotic otherness and fantasy object would be a ificant step up from where I live every day. Probably good for folks with means to experience this kind of thing, get an idea of what it's like for those who have no way to escape, in order to understand what they live with every day, and must often endure their entire lives. I Imagine such experiences would, to some extent, be healthy for everyone to have, at least in small doses. It makes people think, promotes empathy, and builds character. Great points. The most important is the promotion and building of empathy.

I feel like humans are losing their empathy. Thanks for reading! As far as the first part of your statement, you have to first be comfortable and accept yourself.

It isn't easy but I realize a huge change came in my life when I realized that i do not need external validation because I am enough. I Italian men looking for black women a similar experience to this when I visited Brussels. The stares, masculine aggression, subtle hints that I was an outsider.

To be honest, it hurt for the first few days. I think it is important to share these experiences, however I knew to not let it get me down. Some countries are worse than others India, I'm looking at youbut in the greater scheme of things I believe living abroad takes work and pushes you outside of your comfort zone. Kudos to you for sticking it through! People stared with blank, unkind looks on their faces, and specifically in France sitting in a packed train, I'd frequently make eye contact with someone looking straight at me, and I'd immediately flash a good 'ol Southern hospitality smile, but I get NOTHING in return.

My boyfriend and I would walk holding hands and the stares would get worse, to the point that we decided that it's best to not show affection to prevent calling even more attention to ourselves. One night at dinner, a family and their children were sitting across from our table and once again, the stares didn't stop from the parents or the kids……we couldn't even enjoy our dinner without being confronted with blank relentless stares and after so many months of this, we finally snapped and gave the family a piece of our mind.

Yes, they're used to seeing us in their country working low paying jobs or haggling for whatever around train stations, but they're not used to us as professionals or tourists. Thanks for sharing. It is unfortunate when things like that happen, especially when it causes you to change YOUR behavior. I am sad for your experience in Paris. I haven't yet experienced that. Paris serves as a refuge for me when I want to get out of Rome. I am sorry you had that experience in Paris.

My family wife who is white and three mixed kids and I went to France this year and had a great experience. Everyone was nice and welcoming. No bad experiences. I have darker skin and as we are planning to move to France was worried about being a mixed couple. The funny thing is I saw far more mixed couples there than I have ever seen at home Los Angeles.

I hope your future travels go better for you. Thanks for all the dialogue. I think Paris is great for black Africans and mixed people, but it can be a challenge for North Africans and those who are visibly Muslim. So many black Italian men looking for black women and intellectuals have sought refuge in Paris from the racism in America. Rome just sucks. Thanks for sharing your experience. Many people like to believe that Europe is this magically progressive place, when in fact racism and sexism are rampart and not that far from the surface. I was wondering if you have travelled to any nordic countries — like Sweden and Norway.

They have an almost sterling reputation for their progressive social policies, and I wonder if that translates into not staring or being blatantly "curious" about people of color, or if their good graces are only reserved for other nordic folks. Also, have you been to Osteria del Sostegno in Rome? It's by the Pantheon, and a delicious little restaurant. Thanks for commenting. I have been to Sweden and I had a great time. I also have a black friend who grew up in Sweden and she feels that it is completely integrated.

I must say, the friends that I have from the Nordic countries are quite progressive in their thinking. I'll be moving to Rome in September and will for looking into an internship at the UN headquarters here in the near future. Any advice on how to snag that job? The best way to get an internship at FAO which is where I worked is to find the subject matter or projects that you are interested Italian men looking for black women and just send s to the responsible officers. Try to meet them for coffee and hopefully you can turn that into an internship.

Good luck! I lived in Rome for almost a year. I just returned back to NYC last month. I never had any issues with racism. They were trying to pick me up, my asian friends, my Australian friends etc…Personally I think the people are oversexed, men and women. I never had stares, there are so many foreign people living there I am surprised they were all staring at you.

Anyway I am going back in Jan for about a month. I have so many friends there that Italian men looking for black women miss. It's a beautiful place to visit but definitely not to live. The economy is in bad shape and I think Rome is to BC, not advanced enough for me.

Sorry for the delayed response, I somehow missed this. I am glad to hear that you didn't experience racism in Rome. That is a beautiful thing.
