It has been said that the United Kingdom has the highest rate of interracial relationships — ten times that of the European average.We decided to put this theory to the test and analyzed over 1.8 million online dating interactions in the UK to discover the likelihood of users to contact other users based on race. It’s apparent that online daters in the UK prefer to date outside of their own ethnicity.In my teens I used to go to mainly black clubs as a white woman with friends for the music that was played and never issues. Interacial couples are very common in most of the UK, we are a multicultural nation and by and large race relations are good, especially compared to a huge amount of other places in the world including the US. interracial couples are not common in the south west so this story was interesting to hear-it happened in London, the guy was a Londoner who later moved to the south west. Its a part of human nature and affects every demographic and community, even in the South West.The story is completely irrelevant to the question and even if it was, is not representative of any wider whole. Furthermore, maybe outsiders and American's refer to 'interracial relationships'- British people who use that term to describe someone's relationship are usually of a generation when they didn't know any better.This trend is also true for the United States — across the pond, U. daters most preferred Asian women, except for Asian men.
Until the news came out that he’d reportedly proposed to his singer girlfriend. I had my first taste of this racism – because that’s what it is, no matter how subtly or politely it’s disclosed – when I was 18. It was delivered in a jokey way and we laughed it off, but there was always that sense that being with someone of the same race was the "right" thing to do. Seven years on and I still have problems with my current boyfriend, a white New Zealander.
This is mainly due to a sense of community rather than general disapproval as Londoners as a whole are 'progressive minded' and liberal and Brits in general regard it as impolite to 'get involved' in another's private life and their choices unless they are friends or relatives.
Good to see that other people on this forum realise that not all environments are conducive for interracial couples.
I just wonder if things have got better or worse in those 30 years?
