Online dating with indian girls

The one thing we do all agree on is that it comes down to society.In Western culture, there is still a 'white' beauty standard.

Christian Rudder, the site’s co-founder, says: “OKCupid users are certainly no more open-minded than they used to be.

If anything, racial bias has intensified a bit.” A close friend, Sarah, is living proof of this.

It might have been down to a variety of reasons, but experience told her that it’s because he didn’t want to date an Indian girl - or, indeed, any girl who was radically different from himself. A new study by OKCupid suggests that such behaviour is more prevelant than ever.

The website looked at research from five years ago - which showed most people prefer to date within their own race - and compared it to current data. According to OKCupid, Asian and black men receive fewer messages than white men, while black women receive the fewest messages of all users.

You’ll also get the odd comment from racists who just want to tell you how much they don’t like your skin.

One of the most telling incidents occured more than a year ago when a friend was using online dating site OKCupid.

They’re just following suit.” That’s more understandable – after all it’s been going on for centuries.

But there does seem to be a difference between making cultural assumptions, and people claiming they’re just not attracted to certain races, or fetishising them.

They’re just making judgements based on your looks.” Is that OK?
