I know this is a huge generalization but I mean generally speaking? For instance I have never heard a dark woman say about a man, "Oh he's too light" or "I don't like light skinned men."

Drama free.
 
Umm actually, you have 2 questions here:
 
- 'How come light women like dark men and dark women tend to like light men?' The answer is obvious. For some people .. opposites ATTRACT. That's why (outside of America) so many White guys are with Black woman and so many White women are with Black men. This is really very basic Psychology 101.
 
- ' ... I have never heard a dark woman say about a man, "Oh he's too light" or "I don't like light skinned men. ' Well, this is because in Black America - Black women are socialized to like darker men and Black men are socialized to like lighter women.
 
The above does not apply to everyone of course, but to a signifigant extent .. yes.

I agree with Becky that many of our preferences are caused by socialization. I don't agree with her that outside of the US, White men are flocking to Black women. The Black women in Western Europe have many of the same complaints as Black women in the US.

I think this is true.
My grandmother is light, grandfather is dark they had my father, who is light.
He married my mother, who is  a deep red brown. 
I am light and I much prefer dark men. My bf has the sexiest smooth dark brown skin Big smile.
 
My sister is dark... light or dark, she just likes men in general.

I like men period, no color preference. However, light brights hit on me a lot. My current bf is slightly lighter than I am and I'm yellow. But we kind of look like siblings. My parents did too.
 
This. My light ex and I always got mistaken for brother and sister. It pissed me off.

Yeah. I usually see dark skin men date light skinned women, or white women.

I'm brown....and the blacker he is the better. I met my SO in the summer and fell in love with his skin but when the tan goes away....meh.
 
Plus he's tall and I'm short...love it.
