Some musings on Morgan's dating life  
I saw this article on Cracked and it had some interesting points about things you see, not always, but quite often in entertainment. Well it occurred to me that point 5 might apply to Morgan.

Morgan has a, not just outrageously flirtatious, but genuinely tender relationship with Garcia. However, the only women he's shown in actual romantic relationships with are dark skinned women who fit the Hollywood standard of beauty, which is extra ironic because that standard is usually thought to apply more to Caucasian women than women of color. So could this be because Hollywood and maybe audiences as well are still not totally comfortable with interracial relationships?

And, I ship Morgan/Garcia with, but I can also see the view that Morgan/Reid slashers have. Morgan's relationship with Reid is somewhat flirtatious as well (he likes to call him "pretty boy"), so I could see where one might speculate that Morgan might be bisexual, and a bisexual male is something that most people are very uncomfortable with! I can't think of many instances when it's been done on TV except when the guy was a depraved villain or its in a prison setting so there's the implication of it being due to no other options (Chris Keller and Tobias Beecher from Oz).

Of course it may just be that Morgan's type is thin, dark skinned women. I'm not saying there's anything abnormal or wrong about that. Not at all.
These are just some things I've wondered about, and would like to hear options if anyone else cares to share theirs?

They could definitely apply to Morgan and Garcia
