Interracial Dating: The New Enlightenment Less than a century ago, interracial dating was something you didn’t talk about, and something to hide if you did prefer a person of a different color.
There were few places you could go to safely without causing some sort of scandal, and even fewer people who were willing to listen with understanding.
In many areas, especially regions that historically disapproved of mixed race dating, there may no longer be taboos, but the cultural clash still exists.
The family, and even your date, might have stereotypical views of your personal tastes and behaviors.
Today, seven percent of the population claims a mixed race heritage.
Along with the social networking and online communication aspects, these apps had also made it possible for the users to find dates and romance among its other members through friends of friends, in-app suggested users, groups and other newly added features.
Such a possibility doesn’t come as a surprise at all considering the number of individuals who are active in various social networking apps.
Facebook users can simply create a separate dating profile and indicate his/her interests to be shared with others.
The service then allows the users to contact each other.
