Dating different races of women
Though any two people could be compatible, the study found some remarkable racial and ethnic dynamics: In a later post, OKCupid released findings from an analysis of their members who are lesbian, bisexual, or gay.
It seems that some of the same patterns emerged among LGB people, but they were less prevalent.
This can translate into a number of things, including greater difficulty finding romantic sexual partners and possibly “lowering” one’s standards for potential partners.
In that earlier post, I referenced a study on gay and bisexual men and other men who have sex with men (MSM), who do not identify as gay/bisexual.
For example, if an African-American man grew up with salespeople following him around stores as though he might steal something, do you think that affected his opinions and beliefs about how the world works? On the flip side, a white man raised in the suburbs probably didn’t have to think about race every single day, so racial issues aren’t likely at the forefront of his mind as an adult.
