White women only dating
It might have been down to a variety of reasons, but experience told her that it’s because he didn’t want to date an Indian girl - or, indeed, any girl who was radically different from himself. A new study by OKCupid suggests that such behaviour is more prevelant than ever.
The website looked at research from five years ago - which showed most people prefer to date within their own race - and compared it to current data. According to OKCupid, Asian and black men receive fewer messages than white men, while black women receive the fewest messages of all users.
Christian Rudder, the site’s co-founder, says: “OKCupid users are certainly no more open-minded than they used to be.
If anything, racial bias has intensified a bit.” A close friend, Sarah, is living proof of this.

It might start with an innocent "did you get a haircut" right after you wash your hair and there is shrinkage--but it does not end... From moisturizing, to protecting with a satin cap, there is always a new and interesting thing for your guy to discover.
