But, by far, these are the most interesting (and controversial) statistics I’ve encountered lately.
I was initially writing this text as part of the next article but it became so lengthy that I decided to make it a separate post.
As well as seeing that girls don’t reply to guys’ messages that often, you will notice a big disparity between different races. Indian males get replies from only 1 in 4.8 girls on the other hand. Indian men have the lowest response rate from Indian girls.

- Feimal sex
It is very likely that race is the factor that affects the response rate.
(It’s still possible that there are other hidden factors though.) In fact, 45% of the white people (40% of men and 54% of women) on Ok Cupid explicitly say that they prefer dating exclusively other white people.
So minority guys are not on Ok Cupid to date different kinds of girls. White guys are still popular, but Middle Eastern are even more so.
They are definitely not there to date white girls (who are the majority) either. Indian and black guys are doing much better here even though they remain relatively unpopular. This is somewhat consistent with the girl-to-guy reply rate. Out of all the charts we have seen, this one shows the weakest preference in terms of race.
They analysed the message reply rate based on gender and race.
The results they came out with were very interesting to say the least.
Please note the sample size of Indian women is very small so the numbers are not that reliable. This is very different from the men-to-women reply rate.
Apparently, gays and lesbians are more colour-blind than straight people.
It’s also important to mention that black and native American women are very generous with their responses.
It would seem black girls are almost colour-blind if they weren’t so harsh towards black men.
However, the reply rate from Middle Eastern women to Asian men is 27%, which compares very well to the 28% reply rate of white guys, who are the champions of on-line dating.
