Arab dating chicago
Yet, it seems like a relatively common experience, even if you aren’t from a minority group.Amanda Chicago Lewis (who now works at Buzz Feed) wrote about her similar experience on Coffee Meets Bagel for LA Weekly : “I've been on the site for almost three months, and fewer than a third of my matches and I have had friends in common.And they have indeed analyzed the bizarre and somewhat disheartening information on what kinds of ethnicity preferences people have.In a blog post examining if the myth that Jewish men have a “thing” for Asian women, the company looked what the preferences for each race was (at the time, the app was 29% Asian and 55% white).Unlike other apps where you swipe through lots of people, this app sends you one “bagel” it thinks you might like each day at noon.
Which is to say, it kept suggesting men who appear to be Arabs or Muslim.
Despite that, she noticed that all the men she was being sent appeared to be Arab or Muslim (she based this on contextual clues in their profile such as their names and photos).
This frustrated her – she had hoped and expected to see lots of different types of men, but she was only being served potential matches that were outwardly apparent to be the same ethnicity.
Arab women on the app are a minority, and if there are Arab men who state that they prefer to only see Arab women, then it’s going to show them as many Arab women as it can, even if those women (like my friend) had chosen “no preference”.
Which mean if you are a member of a minority group, “no preference” may end up meaning you’ll disproportionately be matched with people from your own race.
