Dating site OK Cupid has carved out a nice little sideline in blogging about the statistics of their more successful users, to try to help people along the way, busting myths about what does and does constitute a good profile photo and whether eating oatmeal correlates with people you'll like or drinking beer correlates with sex on the first date.
But noting trends is not the same as endorsing them - and some trends are simply disturbing.
I'm hopeful this app will secure a nice place for people who don't have any gripes about "race," subconscious or not, to come and connect. I'm sure if I invested some more time I could find other issues, but that's not my job.

It's a lot like most swipe-based dating apps, but the interracial aspect is cool. However, there are some glaring problems that keep me from enjoying using it. Nearby sometimes still shows people 1,000 miles away, which is fine if it's what you're looking for. I've asked a question and haven't gotten an answer yet.
I've looked online for an FAQ, but haven't found one that answers my question. I don't know if reporting blocks, but I don't want to report anyone when I just personally don't want to be contacted by them, anymore.You get these gems: 'Black women are repulsive' 'Asian women are gold diggers' 'Latin women are loyal' It's pretty depressing stuff.Admittedly, the dating game is not equal and it is not kind.According to his results, in some cases it may be fear of rejection playing a part in that reluctance.And that in its turn may be because some people online have had bad experiences with feeling fetishised when someone contacts them: a real chicken-and-egg situation.
