    Nothing offensive or racist just something I feel people can't open about it because they get labelled racist really quick. I know everyone has preferences but when it comes to actually dating them or even marry them does the race still play huge part? It's just from what I have seen personality just doesn't play a huge part for everyone. Some of my white mates have said that they would prefer dating a white girl. What are your thoughts on this?

    Once again, nothing racist just want to know actual opinions of people without them feeling that they are being judged for their opinion.

    I'm not too fussed about it. I mean if I like him then I like him.
    But I'm Chinese so my parents would prefer if I dated someone the same race as me.

    Well most people date fellow white people.

    Oriental women are hot though. I'll be marrying and breeding with a fellow white girl though.

    Many white guys have a perverted fetish for oriental girls.

    Majority date white people, though white man/Asian woman is an increasingly prevalent trend and a minority of working class white women date black men.

    White man/Black woman couples are also in this season.

    The best real world data on this probably come from OK cupid, the dating site founded by mathematicians who analyse their data. The long and short of it: people do have quite noticeable racial patterns when dating:

    men
    – non-black men applied a penalty to black women
    – while black men showed little racial preference either way
    women
    – all women preferred men of their own race
    – but they otherwise penalized both Asian and black men

    So some white guys, date other races for fun but when it comes to settling down and taking her to your mum you would chose a white girl? Why is that?
