Everyone loves the feel good story, even if it's just an anecdote versus statistics. You can see who likes you even if you didn't match them back or even if they haven't shown up in your queue yet. But yes, I totally understand why women would have reservations about dating another race and tbh I would probably pass on me too based on just a picture and profile if I were a white girl. Whats your dating history look like? I mean I understand why the snarky jokes and dismissals happen.
