The mixed-race advantage in online dating

The mixed-race advantage in online dating | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it
Over the past few years, there has been a great deal of research energy devoted to untangling the racial hierarchies in online dating, where white men and Asian women seem to come out the top. However, in a new study released yesterday, researchers say that in some cases multiracial daters are even more desirable than those of any single racial...

6 Tips for Interracial Couples Who Get Stares and Weird Comments

6 Tips for Interracial Couples Who Get Stares and Weird Comments | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

"There’s something to be said for switching the attention from “Oh, my God, I’m being scrutinized and victimized” to “Watch this lady trip all over herself to try to figure out what’s happening with our family."

Community Village Sites's insight:
There is one person at my daughter's school who has asked me three times on three different occasions how I met my wife. 
I'm not sure if she forgot the answer after the first two times or if she wanted more detail. The third time she asked I was finally annoyed and was about to say "Why do you want to know, and what difference does it make?" After the third time I answered I was less detailed. "At work.", I said. 

If people are not real friends or family, I'm not about to spend my time to satisfy their curiosity. Although, I could carry around a business card with a link to my blog article about it I suppose lol.

http://www.youngerolderdating.com - is the best site for Younger Women Older Men Dating . For 13 years, it have successfully helped people who celebrate age gap dating.No age gap is too wide if you both feel so right. Love is ageless and pure. Hence, having a big age gap in a relationship should never pose a problem.
Christina Papazaharias's curator insight, May 12, 2015 12:29 PM

Many online users place great importance and emphasis on users looks, their physical appearance, and how they present themselves. This is one of the negative outcomes of viewing others profiles. We tend to judge others who deviate from the norm, we want to look at profiles that are similar to us in order to find a relationship. Along with bullying, racist remarks can be made on online dating networkings. On a positive note, online dating websites allow for more similar people to connect with one another, decreasing the chance of running into people who don't share similar interests. 

Jarryn Skeete's curator insight, December 17, 2015 9:00 PM

This article is very interesting because it breaks down what types of people are most prefered when it comes to online dating. It also breaks down what types of people are attracted to other types of people. I think it is very interesting to see that in most cases people are attracted than something different than themselves. This information can be helfpul for someone who is trying online dating. It is good to know what types of people will be interested in you. However, this information can be hurtful if you aren't as desired as others or if the type of person you like is more likely to not like you.

How Your Race Affects The Messages You Get « OkTrends

How Your Race Affects The Messages You Get « OkTrends | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it
  • Black women write back the most. Whether it’s due to talkativeness, loneliness, or a sense of plain decency, black women are by far the most likely to respond to a first contact attempt. In many cases, their response rate is one and a half times the average, and, overall, black women reply about a quarter more often that other women.
  • White men get more responses. Whatever it is, white males just get more replies from almost every group. We were careful to preselect our data pool so that physical attractiveness (as measured by our site picture-rating utility) was roughly even across all the race/gender slices. For guys, we did likewise with height.
  • White women prefer white men to the exclusion of everyone else—and Asian and Hispanic women prefer them even more exclusively. These three types of women only respond well to white men. More significantly, these groups’ reply rates tonon-whites is terrible. Asian women write back non-white males at21.9%, Hispanic women at 22.9%, and white women at 23.0%. It’s here where things get interesting, for white women in particular. If you look at the match-by-race table before this one, the “should-look-like” one, you see that white women have an above-average compatibility with almost every group. Yet they only reply well to guys who look like them. There’s more data on this towards the end of the post.
