Behaviour on dating sites can be measured in terms of (a) whom daters initiate a conversation with, but, even better, (b) to whom they respond.
On this second measure, used by Lin & Lundquist (2013), daters are less restrictive than on the first measure. So although a White man might say he doesn’t want to date mixed race women, he may still reply when he gets a message from one.
, aired in the UK in July 2017, argues that in the media lighter skinned black women are used much more than darker skinned ones.
One possible psychological explanation for this is that the facial features of mixed race people with a White heritage can often be more similar to White features, compared with the features of say Black or Asian people.
You can head to the romantic garden rooftop cafeteria, the ‘Met,’ in the evenings on Fridays or Saturdays.
So, take your black partner to one of the rooftop bistros and dine above the streets in the city.
It’s a controversial term that I’ll discuss in more detail in my next blog post.
