The data showed that Asian women are the most preferred by all men except Asian men – who prefer Hispanic women.
Asian, Hispanic and Caucasian women prefer Caucasian men while Caucasian men are more likely to respond to everyone but Caucasian women.
Caucasian women are twice as likely to respond to Caucasian men than African-American men.
African-American men are more likely to respond to women of different races but receive three times more responses from African-American women than a non-black woman.
African-American women prefer all races over Caucasian men but are the least likely to get a response from all men.
Irene LaCota, spokesperson for matchmaking service Its Just Lunch backed up Fischer’s data. “We have seen a trend with younger men being more open to dating different ethnicities,” she said via email. “For example, young asian men are requesting to be matched with caucasian women.”
“For some singles ethnicity is extremely important and a deal breaker." said LaCota. “Our matchmakers will encourage our clients to be open-minded and not paint such a 'tight picture' of who they want to date."
LaCota did have some positive words of advice however. “ Chemistry trumps all when it comes to getting to the second date,“ she said.
