Posted on FiveThirtyEight this morning. Some interesting things to take away from this:
-White men appear to be the least racially motivated when it comes to online dating. Who knew?
-White women are looking waaaaaay more racist than their male counterparts.
-Black men have very little interest in dating black women.
-The article (not represented in this graphic though) talked about how women are more likely message someone who uses similar adjectives to describe themselves. So like, if a woman says she’s “creative and physically fit” she’s likely to message guys who describe themselves as “creative and psychically fit.” Men didn’t have that same tendency.
-Korean dudes are super into Korean girls.
The gap between black men’s interest in black women and vice versa (in dating and all sorts of other things) is pretty depressing, and it goes a long way towards explaining why What About Our Daughters is a thing.
The white guy isn’t too surprising, since in western societies (the ones that OKCupid, Eharmony, etc are culturally skewed to), they’re seen as the default, and are thus usually judged on individual merit rather than on race. The treatment received, then, seems to be the treatment doled back out. What this graph doesn’t show, however, is how likely folks are to respond to people of specific races.
this isn’t really surprising but it skews kind of differently than okcupid’s data set published a few years ago
I wonder if it’s because eharmony’s userbase tends to be older + has to pay
this is supposed to be hot but it looks like a man with a butt head who’s extremely dissatisfied with his life
I can’t stop laughing at this. Just when I finally stop laughing, I crack up again. Oh, sad butt man. Don’t cry. I don’t want to see what kind of tears you’d make.
When you ask for the full body massage I massage the whole body…every inch.
