Notes:
* Each search was intentionally specific because every dating site has a cap of how many members they are willing to show you at once. In order not to exceed these caps which would prevent us from providing inaccurate information, we chose to limit our searches, thereby providing a more accurate snapshot of how each site serves different ethnic groups.

* Since Lavalife has 3 membership bases that each cater to members interested in different types of relationships, we had to run all our searches on one membership base in order to remain consistent. We chose the Intimate membership base since it is the most popular section of Lavalife.
