I’m a bit surprised at men’s openness to interracial dating.
Ok Cupid, a well-known online dating website, showed black men look outside of their own racial group when looking for a significant other.
From match scores in 2014, black men are 2 percent more likely to look for an Asian mate, 1 percent more likely to look for a black mate, 2 percent more likely to look for a Hispanic mate and -6 percent less likely to choose a white mate.
“The researchers realize that their results can be depressing, but they also agree with the many readers who caution against reading too much into the preferences of online daters and speed daters. I married a black man, who I am now (17 years later) divorcing, but the point is that I think the world is FULL of potential, why limit yourself?
Yes, these daters clearly discriminate by race and height and looks and other superficial qualities, but they also temper these biases once they get to know one another.” People who are terribly picky in choosing partners online will relax their standards if they spend just three or four minutes talking to someone at a speed dating session.
