A friend sent this article to me and I am a black woman. Here is my response to her and everyone else:

I looked at it. All I can say is that yes, behind hidden walls, people’s true identities usually come out. We see a pretty high percentage of white women with all kinds of men, especially black men in real life (at least that’s how it seems walking down the street compared to everyone else). So while that data says that 45% of white women prefer their own men, I guess we must be seeing the 55% that are willing to date others in real life.

There is one thing you have to remember in particular. I learned it a long time ago in a communications class but I can’t remember the name for the phenomenon… Most people who respond to things like surveys online and in real life or anything that they have to give their opinion to are the people with the strongest opinions on both the positive side and negative side. Not the people who said, “you know what, I had a pretty good time, this event, this thing that happened in my life was decent.”

The people responding and initiating action at least 65% of the time and I wanna say closer to 95% of the time (but I can’t remember the actual statistics) are people who feel the need to either say “I had a GREAT time! This was one of the best experiences of my life” or the people who feel the need to say “WTF, this is the worse experience of my life!”

Online dating sites give you ambiguity and hopes and dreams for finding your perfect match
