It is because growing up, I have always had issues with my appearance and feeling/being perceived as "unattractive." My confidence was challenged every time the beauty that was praised in my favorite magazine was not reflected in the mirror, every time I went to the drug store to scout out foundation that never matched my skin complexion, every time I went to the hair salon to get my hair chemically processed.
One might say that the demographics on 'OKCupid' is specific in its nature, but Rudder effectively shuts that idea down in the article, stating, "all the dating data I’ve seen fits the website's [Ok Cupid] pattern" and that Date Hookup, another dating site with their own distinct bases, "reflects the same basic biases."In , yet another massive study of online dating conducted by authors Cynthia Feliciano, Belinda Robnett, and Golnaz Komaie, found that, "Over 90% of white women who state a racial preference prefer not to date East Indians, Middle Easterners, Asians, and blacks.
White men with stated racial preferences, in contrast, only prefer not to date one group at levels above 90 percent: black women."So what is the explanation?
I am easily enthralled by a variation of style, discussion, culture and cuisine, to name the broad.
I like to think that I am this way because I am a naturally curious individual, with an ability to catch the beauty in everything and everyone.
Perhaps it is a collection of all these existences and more.
These articles with their statistics and factual data did little to none to surprise me.
Employing questionnaires of 381 college students, this study examines the reasons why Latinos, Asians, and whites choose to include or exclude blacks as potential dates.
First, we find that past structural explanations for low rates of interracial intimacy explain current disparities less among young people today.
Thus, persistent racial ideology continues to drive the social distance between blacks and non-blacks, particularly toward black females.
If I were to describe myself to another person, I would simply say that I am a woman of various taste.
Where most women have to lay out in the sun to win a glowing tan, I did not, as I already possessed such a tone year around.
