To explore the changing patterns of interracial sexual relationships during the transition to adulthood, Joyner and her co-author, Grace Kao, associate professor of sociology at the University of Pennsylvania, analyzed data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health and the National Health and Social Life Survey, some of the first nationally representative surveys to collect information on sexual relationships."Studying trends in interracial sexual relationships is important because intimate relationships between different racial groups are viewed as an indicator of the social and geographic distance between racial groups, and a barometer of race relations," said Joyner.
Unlike other studies, which typically look at marriage or cohabitation and sometimes at current dating relationships, this study looked at trends in these relationships over a 10-year period.
I've left it up for those folks wanting to see what the site used to be like, and, for others still wanting to see what great interracial dating sites still exist.
(Hint, most have merged into bigger sites, like this one).
I've noticed some mentions that Interracial Singles offers memberships to gay and lesbian singles, but when I signed up the only options were: "I'm a man looking for a woman," and, "I'm a woman looking for a man".
However, once I finished filling out my profile, I could choose whether I was looking for gents or gals in my search preferences, but I still couldn't change my profile.
We also offer a live interracial counselor who is on call at any time of the day if you have any concerns or queries, or just need some relationship or advice on interracial dating.
