Dating interracial journal updating from a higher level

Multiculturalism is not akin to having little or no prejudice.

According to the Pew Research Center, 12% of new marriages and 6.3% of nuptials in 2013 were interracial.

Though not widely studied, recent research revealed that interracial daters are rated as more attractive than intraracial daters (findings I summarized here).

Results revealed that close to half (43.5%) of the men studied had been, at some point, in an interracial relationship.

In their initial explorations, the authors found that participants in their study demonstrated more intraracial, compared to interracial, attraction.

Some online dating services allow people to register for free, but making full use of the services available on the site often requires a monthly fee.

Some users have complained that the rules concerning fees are not clear, or that employees of the services fraudulently "flirt" with users as their subscriptions are about to end, encouraging them to renew.

Collectively, the authors’ findings offer insight into what may be driving evaluations of the attractiveness of another person.

As sexual racism has become a topic of conversation, and even the subject of a recent "Daily Show" segment, these findings are timely in that they help others understand factors that might deter from, or encourage, sexual racism.

In 2013, 12 percent of all new marriages were interracial, the Pew Research Center reported.

According to a 2015 Pew report on intermarriage, 37 percent of Americans agreed that having more people marrying different races was a good thing for society, up from 24 percent only four years earlier; 9 percent thought it was a bad thing.

A new study has examined some factors that might account for interracial, compared to intraracial, attraction in young, heterosexual men who are Black and White.
