Sex and dating between white men and black women
Hmmm…Very timely topic as I’ve recently decided to try online dating. 1) Even though my listed target ages are 38-53, men well below that target are contacting me.However, if I like a man’s picture, I respect the age preference listed in his profile, and if I see my age is outside their target, I move on. To be fair to myself though, no guy has made enough money for me to deem him good looking if my initial thought was that he wasn’t.Add this to the annals of studies that confirm things we already know anecdotally.A piece in Time Magazine cites numbers from the Are You Interested Facebook app that concludes that, among 35,942 users ages 30 to 49, a woman was five times more likely to show interest in a man who was five years her junior, rather than one who was five years older.OTOH, if they have no income and aren’t good looking, then they may be doomed to perpetual disappointment in online dating, unless they’re willing to date women who are at or below their league in looks and/or older than their stated age preferences. So in additon to lying about height and probably income (if listed), they’re lying about their age, too?
So assuming the women here are serious about relationships, she has to pay to find it.
The result of this, in both cases, is a severe gender imbalance– a “marriage squeeze”, if you will.
There are plenty of great black men out there, but not for all the college-educated, professional black women.
Not sure that sits well with my desire for honesty in a partner if I can’t exhibit it myself. I’ve had a few dates with men stating they’re 5-7 to 6-6. So now I’m not considering guys under 6′, because he’s probably really 5-9, which I do find appealing.
It seems that the under-6-ft guys are definitely adding several inches to their height. 6) So men with average to sub-par looks aren’t listing their income, which could potentially offset their lack of looks or age, are sending me generic cut & paste intro messages, which shows me they really didn’t bother reading my profile. They need to know their league and/or up their online game if they want to play out of their league.
