Sauce, OkCupid. http://blog.okcupid.com/index.php/race-attraction-2009-2014/


-- Women get three times the responses that men do
-- Men are more interested in dating outside their race than women
-- All women except black women are most drawn to white men
-- Men of all races prefer Asian women
-- Black women respond the most
-- White men get more replies from almost every group.
-- White women prefer white men; Asian and Latina women prefer them "even more exclusively"








What do you lovely people think? I think this is great stuff. People say they will go out with anyone or some other political correct answer, but this proves otherwise. I have no problem with it though, people are allowed to have any preference they want. The only reason why someone would get mad is if that preference rules them out (like how some White girls use the term 'Yellow Fever', a shaming tactic directed towards men, when really they're just jealous of Asian girls) and I have experienced this. I guess it's the same when a Black man chooses a White women over a Black women, the Black women might get mad but I don't have experience with that.

I also find it interesting that over time, the attraction for White women seems to have fallen, (thanks feminism?).

Either way though there is a definitive pattern here, so I guess all's fair in love and war.

I think it's the influence of our media and our culture.

You'd probably get radically different statistics in various different countries.

Well it's from OkCupid, so it's mainly the US/UK which are the most popular here in the west so it's still a huge scale as other countries except Asia follow somewhat close to us.

As a vanilla male, I prefer cookies and cream or caramel. Though none of it really matters since I don't date anyways.

A lot of Asian women from where I'm from just like other Asian men. Western guys are sort of a novelty and there's a cultural taboo against them. It seems there's a popular belief that they only keep the Asian women from the bottom of the pile or something like that.

This isn't a statistic, but I do think these kinds of attitudes are alive and well and aren't going away anytime soon.

I noticed that whenever I have crushes on people, it's always on the same race group that have the certain physical features or personality that I find attractive/sexuality attractive.

Also, I seen a video on this months ago

I knew all of this stuff! Of course black men are the least desirable, have you seen their portrayal... Anywhere? It's all really negative, but this of course benefits the other races more, so not everyone is upset about it.

Politically correct answers like the ones you mentioned are annoying, lol, but it must be said that I have a bias for black men, it's probably from growing up in the south, but I "prefer" them, but I do indeed(or would) date outside of that. I'm Asian, but I wouldn't say whites are my least favorite.... Okay, I would, but that's not as bad as it sounds.

Generally not bothered by race, but I know the Irish accent with women gets me all hot under the collar

I don't find most black women attractive don't know why just don't. Same goes for asian women, just don't find most of them attractive. I find it crazy Latina's didn't do better because Latin women are hot af.

I'm more attracted to familiarity, which means light skin, among other things, but if a black girl's eyes, nose, mouth or jawline falls within my range of familiarity, and has a personality that I find pleasant, then I'm most likely going to be attracted to that girl.

I'm much less attracted to Asian women now, than I was before, because my ex-girlfriend was one, and it ended in misery, so I project her onto most Asian women to some extent regardless of conscious baring.

In other words. I'm attracted to what I trust, and that's pretty much how all humans work.

Black women don't trust white men? White women don't trust black men? It's hardly news. Women pretty much don't trust anyone, unless it's their brother, and a lot of the time they don't even trust their brother (edited: probably for a good reason, too).

The video that gynocentric woman produced falls in line with it too. Although some things are slightly different.

From what I've seen people tend to stick to their own race when dating, which is somewhat understandable
