Like the title suggests, I'm a black woman. I'm very aware of the social stigmas regarding how black woman and Asian men supposedly fare on dating sites but, nontheless I don't consider myself to be ugly at all. I also am aware that there are indeed black women who do excellent with online dating. But honestly, what's the deal with it? I tried 3 dating apps as an experiment and compared my results with an acquaintance of min who isn't black and she also noticed that I did poorly to averagely. She's beautiful and I understand why she's getting so many responses but I don't think I'm that bad in the looks department. It frustrated me so to the point that I deleted all the apps and didn't continue with the experiment. It's not as of all black women are unattractive or look the same. I'd love to hear some feedback and responses from all directions.

Those girls are getting more responses because they have better pictures. Look at your dp... you're pretty but your picture is so cringe.
Take photos like these. You have a smartphone? Try to use a bit on instagram editting to compliment your photos. You can take better photos and you'll have more success this way.

Statistical trends are out there that say black women may have a disadvantage in the interracial dating scene, so your race may play a role unfortunately. I dunno why people deny that. It may not even be a pure physical thing, the stereotypes against black women suck. But, even with that, it doesn't dictate much. You will still have guys who are interested in you. Since race is something you cannot control and since you are a pretty girl... like some others said, just work on your profile and taking a nicer photo to share. You're the same girl regardless of photo, but I mean, just to give you your best chance... try something that's more universally pleasant as the main photo so that it's not intimidating and is pleasantly eye catching. Good luck!2
