Interracial dating study

Posted by Ria, 26 Mar 07

Is it true that white women prefer white men? Apparently the video dealt with online dating sites and the patterns they reveal in white women’s dating and mating behavior. 97% of white women’s replies to men’s profiles are to white men as the study shows. But the percentage of those that mix with non-white men are pegged on income. The higher the non-white male earns, the higher the income.

In other words, for a non-white male who wants to date a white female, or for him to get replies on his profile from dating sites $$$ talks – you have to be making an extraordinarily high income. The study also shows that economic security is an important factor in women's mating behavior. Reminds me of my favorite program Desperate Housewives when this dude Carlos said the soon to be ex-wife Gabrielle screams dollar signs when she’s coming “$$$$$ohhh$$$$$$!!!᾿ :lol:

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

One White woman referred to the "premium" as a "security deposit" remark considering the increased risks for the woman when dating outside her race. What risks? You wonder!!!

If these statistics are true, then it means most women marry for convenience and not love. Well I don’t want to agree with this. I have always believed in love. For me love comes first… we can build on economic stability together. But a pal of mine once told me, a woman can’t live on love alone – you gotta eat and shop till you drop. 8O Well… that’s her opinion. What’s yours?

    I met a wonderful loving man a year and a half ago. I met him on a different site. He wrote me first. He was a Phd. I gave him my number. He called me. We talked. I loved his voice...his enthusiasm and energy. I went back and looked at his picture. He was 61, bald, but, I loved his sweet face. I am a Flight Attendant so he ask me to meet him in Miami. He was coming from Santa Barbara. I was coming from Atlanta ( I am from California) We met at the airport, rented a car and drove to Boca Raton where he had business to take care of. We went out. He held my hand and looked at me like he thought I was the best thing ever. We had a great time getting to know each other for two days. I felt safe and totally trusted him. the way he touched me I felt like I had died and gone to heaven. The next month I was flying to Argentina. As it turned out he was going to be there for vacation with his cousin. I was arriving in Buenos Aires that morning. He was leaving that evening. After flying all nightI got to the hotel with the crew at 9 am, called him and he was on his way to my hotel by 10. we spent the day together walking, talking, people watching at a side walk cafe. We took a nap together. He left at 4pm to head back to his hotel. I decide this was the man for me. This was the first man I had ever met that I knew I could love forever and take care of no matter what. He was also the first white guy I had ever dated seriously. I was the first A/A woman he had dated. As it turned out he was not rich. I did not care. He had his own business and was concerned about the economy and his finances I tried to be sensitive and make it clear that I was not a shopper and spender and we could do all things free like walking, playing, parks, driving, etc. We spent holidays together. I fly for free so airfare did not cost him or me when I went to Santa Barbara. I met his family ( father, sister and brother in law). I liked them and think they liked me. We lasted a year and a half. His over whelmimg concern about money would not allow him the freedom to just enjoy "us". I did everything I could to assure him it did not matter to me. That we could move to Panama and live cheap or go where ever to live the lifestyle we both wanted. we attended an investment seminar together in las Vegas for a week and stayed at the Green Valley resort. I figured this ment we were definitely partners, a couple. We had a good time. Did not argue, fight or disagree on anything. After that week he did not call. I could really feel that the pressure of the seminar and his lack of wealth was working on him. There was 450 to 750 people there at any given time and he was sure he was the guy with no money. He said he felt like a fraud. I finally decided to let him get back to his passion...his business...so it ended. I had never been so happy with someone. But I am moving on. So... now money is an issue for me. Not because I am going to shop and spend, but, because I don't want to hear any excuses for why we can't be happy...none. If you don't have it or it is an issue I am not interested.

    Ok help me understand this one, if he is white and broke he doesn't need a security deposit? But if he is anything else he better be making some money to date her? Was it me or did she look broke? Gold diggers come in all forms, stupid is the usual form.

    Why would men think that women would not want a man who can prove them with security?? Pretty to beautiful women get more responses then average to unattractive women. Why does this surprise anyone??? Men seem to want to keep the thing the same but want women to change. One of the biggest casues of divorce is money. Give me a break but the good looking guy living under the bridge with all the personality in the world isnt going to get a date with me. I am honest enough to know where that is going. And truthfully why would a women give up giving being single if the guy doesnt offer something better???

    OK, WHY WOULD SOMEONE NEED ''AN EXTRA SECURITY DEPOSIT'' BEFORE THEY DATE SOMEONE OF A DIFFERENT RACE. THESE PEOPLE ARE THE DEFINITION OF STUPID. ANYONE WHO WOULD PUT A PRICE TAG ON RACE AND LOVE ARE USUALLY ALWAYS THE ONES WHO END UP IN REHAB, DEPRESSED, AND A SAD SUMBITCH

    I find this all very sad...Maybe coming from England i have a different outlook, but i personally think it's about the person and not the size of his wallet. Women like your friend also make me mad, maybe because i have a friend who is similar, what is wrong with a woman earning enough by herself to 'eat and shop till she drops' (although i personally have never seen the appeal in that) And maybe this is also more of an English thing, but where are the risks for a woman dating outside of her race? Did they ever think that if it's a risk for them, then it's probably also a risk for the man.....But then that's another issue entirely, where we start to discuss why people is this day and age of such multi-cultural societies still have race related problems

    I have a rich white male friend who used to have a profile on the dating website. He felt that he would get more responses if he were to disclose his very rich financial condition. Under normal circumstances he would be considered physically ugly. He would get many responses everyday from women looking for "love". He is living with one of these women now who is so much in "love" with him she has no problem spending his money. The women by the way is not white.

    A very interesting read. Unfortunately, I can believe this to be true very easily. Wish they'd have put the percentage of woman who won't date outside their race no matter what. Bet it would be high as well.

    It was sort of sad but not alarming to to hear the white lady state that she needed a little "extra security" (money!!!) when dating outside of her own race. But that may not hold true to allot of other white women who date "broke" men outside of their race. As for me...I don't care what race he is from, I do consider his income and market capability (amongst other things). However unlike the women of this study, I do not choose the race of my mate based on what I consider an acceptable income. That's pretty sad!
