    So I don’t discriminate when it comes to dating. As a girl that comes from a mixed background, I’ve had the term “exotic” used time after time to describe me.
    I’m curious to hear some of my fellow SB’s thoughts on it?

    Have you been called exotic before? How do you feel about the word? How do you feel about the word?

    Yes, i had been called exotic many times. Because this i also use the therm on the heading part at my profile. Im brazilian but i have european, asian, african and brazilian natives in my bloodline. Im brunette, olive skin tone who look like are always tanned. I understand exotic as something different and unique, sexy… you know what i mean!?
    So, dress up your exoticity with pride.

    I don’t mind. Exotic really just means from another land or something different than what you are used to seeing. Being different and beautiful is a good thing, as far as I see it. I have had many men tell me I look Caribbean but surprise surprise. My parents are both West African and I am born and raised here. Ive never even been to the Caribbean.

    Idk, i have mixed feeling about men who use the word “Exotic”. It makes me question whether they have a fetish or something. And while I’m more okay with certain fetishes that doesn’t mean I want the complexion of my skin and the way my features are to be fetishized. That’s similar to the comments men give many black girls/women saying “your pretty for a black girl/woman” I think it’s disrespectful because we should just be beautiful women not a beautiful woman for the color of our skin.

    I think the term can be taken either way. In one sense, it is a compliment of many things, like speaking of unique features, but in another sense its pointing us out as if we are so different its still unusual.

    Yes! I got that a lot , I especially get a lot of comments on my eyes 🤣. I’m actually really flattered that they think my eyes are exotic/unique looking, to me it means that my looks stand out to them and that makes me feel special.

    I’m called exotic all of the time. I’m constantly asked what race am I and or what am I mixed with. I’m not bothered by it at all. I actually enjoy looking different than everyone else.

    Most people take the word exotic as a compliment. But the truth is that they are saying “how beautiful you are to be a non-white woman”
    Caucasian and Eurocentric beauty is seen by society as the patron and all people of other races who, contradicting this pattern, dare to be undoubtedly beautiful even to their racist eyes, then they are called “different” and a new word was invented to define them “exotic”.
    That is why it is not a compliment, a beautiful woman is independent of her ethnicity and period, we know that we are not so unique compared to other people of our same ethnicity to feel praised with such an affirmation.
    Although it is also true that people who call us exotic do not pretend to be racist nor do they intend to offend, but when someone tells me this I always distrust their social and racial prejudices as well as their fetishes.
