In Online Dating World, Asian Women Are Tops

World Journal, News Headline, Staff Posted: Apr 24, 2009

LOS ANGELES - According to a report by the University of California, Irvine, online dating habits have shown significant racial differentiation, the World Journal reports. In a multi-cultural society like the United States, Asian men and African-American women are less popular among other races, due to the stereotype created by the media.

The research is based on statistics gathered between 2004 and 2005 in four cities: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Atlanta. The sample is a group of Yahoo online matchmaking users ranging from 18 to 50 years old. The report shows that white men are more likely to look for Asian and Latino women as their mates, while white women will choose African-American and Latino men over Asians.

Researcher Cynthia Feliciano said most Internet users are influenced by television, movies, and music that gives them the ideas that Asian men are physically weaker and African-American women are very loud. The media tends to portray Asian women as more gentle and loving.

The research also shows that although interracial marriage is becoming more common, the rate remains low.
