If you want to dive deeper on a particular online dating topic, it’s easy to customise this survey template with your own questions.To create a survey using the Online Dating survey template, just sign up or sign in to Survey Monkey.In a survey published Tuesday by dating app Tinder, people who date online — and on Tinder specifically — say such services make them more open-minded about dating someone outside their own race or ethnicity. According to the survey of more than 4,000 people ages 24 to 45, carried out by marketing analytics firm Morar HPI, 72% of people who used dating apps thought Tinder was the most diverse app.(Tinder doesn’t ask users to specify their race when they sign up, so they have no way of knowing the actual racial breakdown of their user base.)The survey is part of a campaign by the company petitioning the Unicode Consortium to include interracial couple emojis.But I’ve noticed that when I mention my bipolar disorder things change. And my highs mean I want to go out and can be hyper sexual with a lot of PDA. Violence is something that most with bipolar never exhibit (Not that it doesn’t happen, but statistics show that it is unlikely to happen). The conversation changes, and that is because the very mention of bipolar brings up a whole host of stigmas. More often you are going to deal with isolation on lows and sometimes highs.
The company looked at the dating data again in 2014, and found it was pretty much the same — yet in a survey, the percent of people who said they preferred to date in their own race had dropped.
In the first conversation because if they can’t deal with it then they can’t deal with me — and why should I waste my time?
Because they’ve dated someone else with a mental illness, and maybe they do. My lows normally mean isolation, so having someone normally helps that.
So basically, people’s opinions about interracial dating became more enlightened, but their actual dating habits weren't.
Ok Cupid’s founder, Christian Rudder, wrote in 2014 that dating preferences don’t necessarily make a person racist, but “the trend — that fact that race is a sexual factor for so many individuals, and in such a consistent way — says something about race’s role in our society.”And simply dating someone from another race or ethnicity doesn’t automatically mean a person has transcended all forms of subtle racism.
But Tinder’s survey is about what people say they think about interracial dating; the actual truth of how people behave is a different story.
