The figures were similar for biracial daters, with over 87% indicating that they were willing to date someone outside their own racial/ethnic group.
Again the overwhelming majority indicated that they were seeking partners who were white (92%), followed closely by respondents who reported they were willing to date Hispanics (81%) and 'others' (71%).
A new study examines for the first time how both biracial and monoracial daters really feel about dating someone with a different background to theirs.
The research suggests that, in the US at least, a person's race still plays a big role in who might ask them out for dinner. Mc Grath of Vanderbilt University, and her colleagues, studied the profiles and racial preferences of 1,200 men and women on the US version of the dating site

As Mc Grath and her colleagues explain: "Daters essentially 'trade' in personal, social, and cultural capital to find a romantic partner with characteristics that they believe will fulfil their own needs and desires.
