An oft-cited Ok Cupid study from 2014 backs this up.
"Eighty-two percent of non-black men on Ok Cupid show some bias against black women," Christian Rudder, co-founder of Ok Cupid, wrote in a blog post analyzing the data.
While it might seem like an easy way to get support and encouragement, it can be a turn-off for potential dates to Google your name and find all of your dirty laundry out for the world to see.
It’s ok to talk about your dating experiences, as long as you do it offline with trusted friends and confidantes!
"All I want is to date a respectable, professional man of any color who loves me with all my chocolate skin and rolls.
What bothers me the most is the fact that I'm not given a chance."Research on the subject highlights one unfortunate fact: Black women are the lowest on the online-dating totem pole.
When you fill out your online dating profile, mention if you’re hoping to find something serious, or are just looking for activity partners or flirting.
This will ensure that only the people who are looking for the same in a date will respond to you-for the most part.
My hope is that my friends let me play romantic roulette with their love lives because they think my job affords me some top-secret dating intel.
In reality, they probably just let me do it because of how much it fascinates me.
Our team is also standing by to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Black singles looking for love aren’t interested in material or superficial things for the most part.
You don’t need to make a lot of money or have the best of everything to be attractive to your date, and chances are they will appreciate you being yourself rather than trying to fake it.
Listening to her experiences makes me want to set something on fire.
