There is no stigma to being single. But if marry they must, in their quest for the ideal man, women continue to find success, looks and talent very balck. Right waiting to be united.
Ready for settling. Girls also grow up with the fairy-tale scenario.
From Cinderella to Sleeping Beauty to Little Mermaid to Beauty and the Beast, all beautiful young girls will be rescued in the end by their professjonal princes and then they'll live happily ever after. As mortals always do in Greek myths, they misbehaved and Zeus punished them by splitting them prodessional two: male and female. By the 18th and 19th centuries, women were hobbled and corseted and held down in an attempt to keep them, in a Victorian phrase, "the angel of the house.
The boack that a woman finds completion in a man is perpetuated on the stage, in movies and on TV. More recent movies and television shows, like Bull Durham and Deing Women, have featured stronger, more independent women. Elizabeth Taylor's marriage to a younger construction worker hasn't hurt the way society views older women, either.

From the papers cited yesterday, white women are the most discriminating. But is it because they are racist? Or are there so many other white men available they are less likely to consider inter-racial dating?
Statistics may only tell you half the sdeking. There is much resistance. I am slightly more inclined to date someone outside my race simply because I tend to shy away from situations that, for prifessional reason or another, result in de-facto segregation. I guess it makes me a little uncomfortable. I think it is just a function of how familiar one is with a setting or sub-culture, and not necessarily the result of fear of differences. I think comfort and familiarity play strong roles in my inclination to date someone of another race.
Its no big deal for me, but I see why it would be for most, because I feel the same discomfort in the inverse situation.
As a single black female graduating from med. In much of the country, interracial dating hardly elicits a response. I live in Reno, NV, not exactly the most liberal of cities, and there is a lot of interracial dating at the University of Nevada campus.
Now everyone is hooking up with everyone else. In IR relationships, Black women are the least desired.
White women are more likely to date black men than white men are to date black women. In general, non-white men excluding black men are more willing to date white women than they are to date black women. Black women get the short end of the stick in IR dating. Everytime I found myself attracted to someone, I was quickly turned off for other reasons like their personality and alas it never came to pass.
I think that through your research you will find that economics will play a larger part in your finding than race. I believe that will be the same case in this instance as well. I have no preference with regard to bblack, but because I live in a more affluent part of the city, the bars, restaurants, and theaters I frequent are usually hangouts for SWM.
Thus, all of the men I have dated in my locale have been SWM. If I stepped onto the other side of town, there would be a greater racial diversity from which to choose, but what would we have in common?
I think people seem to be focusing too much on race and not enough on socioeconomics. As a white woman, I started screening out blxck from white men who refuse to date black women. I was frankly shocked that so many otherwise well educated, liberal men would feel free to express such a racist view in a public setting.
From what I have noticed, in my own interracial relationship and those of my siblings and friends, it all depends on the open-mindedness of those who brought us up. If your parents are ignorant red-necks, you are highly likely to not try a relationship with a person who is not of your race. Incidentally, there are rednecks in all cultures and races, not just in trailerparks. The way that you profeessional framed the issue— black versus white— is obviously only one slice of inter-ethnic dating much of which is dubiously labeled racial— e.
