It is well known that these types of relationships were often considered taboo on many different levels in many different cultures throughout history.Interracial personals or Interracial personal ads are personal advertisements intended to find romantic partners or friends of other races.Interracial personals are a fast-growing niche among internet dating sites.An example of this type of niche dating site is Cupid Virtual.The definition of interracial dating is as simple as it sounds: the formation of a romantic relationship between two individuals of different races.An online survey conducted in October 2001 found that 49% of students said they had dated someone of a different race. According to one news report, there were 117,000 black wife-white husband couples in the United States in 2006, an increase from 95,000 such couples in 2000. Online interracial dating services assist such people by making it easier for them to find other people interested in interracial relationships.The use of a site with interracial personals, as opposed to a general internet dating site, can save a person considerable time and effort.
A recent study of Google Ad Sense ads that appeared on interracial dating sites indicated that many of the larger dating sites are trying to cater to this market as well, and some even claim to be interracial dating sites, but users often find themselves sifting through profiles on the major sites such as or Yahoo!Personals trying to find people who are looking to date outside their race.Some online dating services allow people to register for free, but making full use of the services available on the site often requires a monthly fee.Some users have complained that the rules concerning fees are not clear, or that employees of the services fraudulently "flirt" with users as their subscriptions are about to end, encouraging them to renew.
Some interracial dating sites, such as Interracial Oasis have avoided such complaints by charging no fees.Another growing niche that deals with Interracial personals are the dating sites that cater to people who are looking for romance in "exotic" countries such as users from U. A and Europe looking for romance in countries in Latin America, Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe.
