This is something very different from the previous chart.
So minority guys are not on Ok Cupid to date different kinds of girls. White guys are still popular, but Middle Eastern are even more so.
Tinder revolutionized the dating world when it was launched five years ago.
The dating app’s unique design inspired a surge of location-based “swipe” apps which collectively morphed online dating from an odd, secretive habit into an acceptable way to meet partners.
The app’s data proves that black women and Asian men are the demographics on which the highest number of people swipe “left,” thereby rejecting them.
By distilling dates down to a profile picture and a swipe, Tinder encourages users to act on their knee-jerk reactions, and that lightning fast process lights up corners of our minds we haven’t fully grappled with as a society.
So, before reading this, please keep in mind that the majority of the users of Ok Cupid are US based.
As well as seeing that girls don’t reply to guys’ messages that often, you will notice a big disparity between different races. Indian males get replies from only 1 in 4.8 girls on the other hand. Indian men have the lowest response rate from Indian girls.
Black women and Asian men make up two demographics that have been long stigmatized as not-ideal sexual and romantic partners. It’s that the app compiles data on the quick preferences, and prejudices, of millions around the world, exposing an uncomfortable and racist reality.
Established in 2004, a whole six years prior to Tinder, the dating site OKCupid ensured its longevity when it sought help from Tinder in 2013 to implement the swipe into its own platform.
One of the comments in the original article said that minority girls choose Ok Cupid because they want to date guys of other ethnic groups. The least popular group is black women, to whom only 1 in 2.9 men reply.
According to that comment, they would go to other dating sites for specific races if they wanted to date guys of their own ethnicity. But I don’t think this is necessarily the case because minority guys respond to minority girls equally well. This is a big difference compared to Middle Eastern women. Are all the women secretly dating Middle Eastern guys?
It was a year later when OKCupid founder Christian Rudder published , a book which collects illustrated data visualizations with stats from OKC user profiles.
