Evolutionary scientists are now challenging the common view that mate choices are evolutionarily “hardwired” in our brains.
Instead, they suggest that humans are programmed to respond to changing environments and norms with great flexibility.
First, they looked at cross-cultural research to compare the values in different countries around the world.
I guess there are mixed race women that go for black guys too but it seems rarer.
But i've never really seen clearly mixed race people both date each other.
In online dating, education tends to function as a “proxy for resources and future provision as it can represent economic advantages,” study co-author Stephen Whyte said in a statement.
He and Benno Torgler, both behavioral economists, collaborated on the research.
The researchers from Queensland University of Technology analyzed hundreds of thousands of online dating interactions from the Australian dating site RSVP, involving 41,000 individuals during a four-month period last year.
The participants ranged in age from 18 to 80 years old. #workhardplayhard HIS (U): My ideal woman is someone who is kind, caring, educated, nurturing, can walk in heels, great sense of humor, maker of great pancakes and lastly can love me as deeply as I would love her.

As you can tell by my long winded description I love thoughtful gifts. He is God’s reflection of love here on earth, a love that I can trust and reciprocate freely. He is also adventurous, like pick me up from work on a Friday with my bags packed and a plane ticket for a surprise weekend trip to go hiking or skydiving or to just relax because he knows we both could use a moment of peace from our busy schedules. Something thoughtful like the scene in Jason’s Lyric when Jason (Allen Payne) manages to ‘rent’ a public bus, the same bus his love interest Lyric (Jada Pinkett Smith) takes to and from work everyday. Once they make it to their destination he leads her up a flight of stairs.It seems, in areas where race is more clear, that mixed race people only date black or white people and usually seem to date white people, especially mixed race women.I would like to hear from mixed race people and their experiences of who they are attracted to, who their relatives date etc.The study, to be published in the upcoming April issue of the journal Personality and Individual Differences, shows that the importance of education levels is one factor that changes significantly with age.
