Also, I made a resolution to actually date more this year as a lot of people have remarked that I haven't seriously dated in three years! So here goes, I guess?

Oct 26, 8, Circa ish, I used to absolutely dominate online dating.
I went on a new date whenever I wanted ie: could afford. My keys to success back then were simple. I never asked for a picture. I wrote a personalized introduction for each girl I was interested in.
I asked questions outside of what was on our compatibility test. These were what was the last book you read, CD you bought, movie you watched at the theater, and concert you attended.
Instant engagement. Anyway, one of my favorite things about blind dates was having no idea what she was going to look like. Fat, skinny, black, white, hot, ugly, whatever. It was the connection on paper that was always my jumping off point. My requirements were that she have a job, college education, non smoker, and have her own car.
I let the rest of the chips fall where they may. I think a lot of people fall through the cracks in this environment. Btw, the site I used was called Sparkmatch. It was free back then, but later became OkCupid. Sakujou Banned. i would say, online dating in general simply sucks.

Nah, not wanting to date someone outside of your race sounds fucked up tbh. And also thanks to our cultural conditioning, their men are NOT a sexual competitor at all, so these ones are GREAT wife material.

As an Indian guy it truly is hell, but I don't think racism has anything to do with it. Like I really doubt many of the girls who claim to only like white guys on tinder or whatever would be swiping left on Zayn Malik or Toni Mahfud. The sad truth is that white men on average are just significantly better looking than men of any other race.
Just step into any college campus and this becomes instantly evident. A better more realistic solution would be to have a government subsidized plastic surgery program for ethnic males. Getting an average ethnic male to surgically ascend his looks rating by two points might allow him to compete on a level playing field with the average white male.
I know I'd be the first one to sign up. BuBu Jenkins said:. Had a discussion with my black friend and he came to the conclusion that white people being propped up so high for beauty standards is due to the much higher variety of potential features that minorities simply lack. white people can be natural blondes, redheads, brunettes, and black hair while having natural green eyes, blue eyes, brown eyes and assortment of physical features that are attractive to all races.

The last half of your first sentence and you second sentence contradict one another. Cross race bias is exactly the kind of thing that results in racial generalization regarding appearance and thus disregarding racial groups, but it's not founded in racism, or so scholarly papers seem to conclude.
Thus the insinuations that it is racist seem unfounded when based purely upon the fact that such a preference exist while knowing nothing else about the person. PancakeFlip Member. Oct 26, 6, It doesn't. It doesn't explain a disregard for specific other groups, ie "I'm white and don't find black people attractive". Not to mention most studies on it mostly pertain to identification, not really attraction so to speak.
No, it does actually. And you kind of point out why.

For those of you who don't know, Match asks you about your preferences in an SO. One of these preferences includes racial background. This wouldn't be so bad if I could filter out those people by either taking them out of the equation entirely or letting me see people who are only interested in black people, but nah that's not an option for some reason.
Hell, OKCupid at least had an option to filter out those kinds of people, although you had to pay to enable that. Then there are people who are interested in black dudes but only for the sex. Like, that's cool and all if that's your thing, but I'd rather not be your fetish if I'm actually looking for a partner. I said POC in the title, but I honestly don't know how it is for any other non-black people out there.

Don't let online dating be a crutch, though. Mix it up with other methods--Meetups, Speed dating, your own network.

Never heard of that term before. Is that just a general term for non white or does it only refer to African Americans? atomsk eater Member. Oct 25, 3, I feel like I lucked out, as a black woman dating online is supposed to be particularly hard but I found a really great guy in a chat that wasn't even about hooking up. Pretty stupid match doesn't have a way to remove people who aren't interested in your race from searches.

Nov 2, 3, I knew it would be this way, long before articles started popping up regarding the phenomenon, which is why I've stayed far away.
Not only does the very notion of online dating annoy me, but it can both wreck your confidence and give you a false impression of what your potential spectrum for partners are. As a black male, I've dated a lot of women outside my race - white women in particular - and in most cases, I'm usually the first black guy they've been with.
I've literally been with women that told me they'd never considered being with a black guy before. That's because, yeah, while they might hold bigoted views and preconceived notions about POC, and tell themselves they wouldn't date outside their race - most times, it just takes being approached by the right type of guy in the real world for them to open their minds up to it.
They are bad, and they're ruining dating for a lot of people. This includes people who can get a lot of dates.
