Online dating america americans and whites
Growing up in Japan my parents were really strict and so I didn’t get an opportunity to start going on dates until after I graduated from high school.I did have a Japanese boyfriend but I ended things with him to go to school in California.Most daters on mainstream sites like OKCupid, Tinder and are white.And the statistics say that most of those white men are looking to date someone who “share their racial background.” That means that, for the most part, black women’s profiles are passed by.
Until mainstream online dating sites catch up on colorblindness, many experts say that black women have more success on sites like Meld, Black People Meet or other sites designed for black people and the people interested in dating them.
If OKCupid’s studies are anything to go by, black men gave black women the cold shoulder too and vice versa.
A recent study found that black people of all ages were 10 times more likely to initiate contact with white people than other black people.
Unlike Japan, California is a true melting pot of cultures but since I had so little dating experience back home, I was nervous about getting into the dating scene in America.
Mostly because I had no idea how the American dating culture worked.
In America, it really depends on the person but I have never experienced this type of initiation.
