Race is a touchy subject in dating and attraction. How much does it really impact your desirability? Anywhere from +19% to -30%, it turns out.
We’ve talked about race off and on at Girls Chase. My usual advice is to not worry about it too much, because you can’t change it; there are so many attraction factors you can focus on that it’s effectively not that relevant most of the time. And if you get your fundamentals tight enough, you transcend race (or negative racial effects become bonuses – “Oh! I didn’t know X race guys could be like him!”).
William talked about race here: “Everything I Know About Race and Dating
Girls”, and Jerome discussed it (with a few thoughts by me)
here: “Asian Guys and White Girls: The Secret to
Success.” And I called out guys who focus on race (or other
subjects) to the exclusion of all else here: “I Can’t Get Girls Because Girls Only Want
At the risk of opening up a can of worms (i.e., the “my race has a negative impact, therefore I shouldn’t even try” worm can), I’d like to look at some of the actual data on racial preferences... As well as how these change with time.
