    So some of you may or may not know this, but OkCupid does data analysis on users of their website. It's interesting to look at. Three things I noticed:

    1) It gives credence to black women's complaint that black men (or men of any race for that matter) are chasing after women of other races and ignoring them. They have the lowest reply rate.

    2) Black men, both gay and straight, get replies at the lowest rate amongst men.

    3) White people, both gay and straight, are the most likely to strongly prefer to be in a relationship with someone of the same race.

    Y'all can check it out for yourselves:

    What turned you off so quickly? A unfortunate run of bad chats and/or dates? Lack of appealing prospects?

    It's not surprising.I am pretty sure if all the website did the same thing they would get the same results.

    Im not into the constant wasting of time that a lot of guys do on dating apps. Im abt actually meeting up, as opposed to constant pic exchanges.

    I met 1 guy who i clicked w initially, then he disappeared after the 2nd date. Then popped up a month later texting me. All w no explanation for wtf he disappeared to.

    I tried OKCupid the same time I tried Tinder. Either I wasn't "clean-cut" enough or I wasn't White enough, because I didn't get many serious responses on there. Based on the profiles I got the feeling that the black guys on there in Atlanta were looking for their Republican Congressman to marry. Got a lot of shirtless white dudes in other states hitting me up though. The more urban intellectual black men weren't really options on there for Atlanta, not like Jack'd...but they're all corrupted.

    I've had an OkCupid profile, on and off. I actually made a couple of really cool gay acquaintances. Haven't found a serious serious date at all though

    I thought about using it. I like the questions portion it gives a better assessment of people. I wish more online dating sites would include it. I've always wondered about OKcuip's stats on blacks qays/qeer/ lgbt demographic.
