the Black Lives Matter movement

The Black Lives Matter (BLM) social justice movement has caused people around the world – especially in North America – to build awareness around individual and systemic racism in America. And singles were no exception to the awakening.

In the 3 months since the killing of George Floyd & the national response through the BLM social movement, 24% of singles are now more open to dating people of a different race or ethnicity than they were before.

values matter

59% of singles want to know if their date supports the black lives matter movement.

64% of singles say they cannot have a relationship with someone who has a very different view about racial equality; with women feeling more strongly than men (72% of women vs. 59% of men).

And while we’re on the subject of interracial dating: There’s been a 58% decrease in singles not being open to dating someone of a different ethnicity in the past 10 years.
