The original article dates back to 2009 so it’s not exactly fresh, but I think it’s still valid.
The chart below shows how likely you will be to get replies from girls based on race. They are particularly popular with Indian, Asian, Latin and white women.
This is particularly interesting because their male equivalents are the most popular. All the guys, except black guys, respond well to the girls of their own race.This is something very different from the previous chart.It is very likely that race is the factor that affects the response rate.(It’s still possible that there are other hidden factors though.) In fact, 45% of the white people (40% of men and 54% of women) on Ok Cupid explicitly say that they prefer dating exclusively other white people.I don’t know why they almost seem to avoid black guys.
One of the comments in the original article said that minority girls choose Ok Cupid because they want to date guys of other ethnic groups. The least popular group is black women, to whom only 1 in 2.9 men reply.
But, by far, these are the most interesting (and controversial) statistics I’ve encountered lately.
I was initially writing this text as part of the next article but it became so lengthy that I decided to make it a separate post.
Please note the sample size of Indian women is very small so the numbers are not that reliable. This is very different from the men-to-women reply rate.
Apparently, gays and lesbians are more colour-blind than straight people.
It’s also important to mention that black and native American women are very generous with their responses.
