You shouldn't have a problem...I find there are women from all races that may want to date you. You just have to find her. When I was in college, I went out a couple times with an Indian guy...mind you, I'm African American. It was no big deal....

Southern Cali has so many different types of women, you'd be surprised at what you might stumble on

Did you see South Asian males going out with other ethnic groups too? My friends tell me Black women are very open minded there but White, Hispanic, Persian, and Asian women are really close minded and either prefer their own race, Black males, or White males (hear all women there love White men).

Like are most women in that part of the country like that?

Advantage...depends....do these other guys have great personalities, are they confident in knowing who they are, do they treat their girlfriend with respect and honesty, etc....

Any man can do that....some just do it better and it has nothing to do with their race, etc..

Well if that is the case I am going to love the area. Where I live, if you are not a White guy (or in some cases Black guy), you better stay with your own race. I live in Alabama.

White males enjoy the privilege of dating who they please but non-White males do not.

At the time, I lived in the Midwest (St. Louis area). There was a white girl I knew who married a Pakistani so I guess anything is possible. It was not unusual to see all types of women with these type of men even men from Dubai and other places.

If you tell a woman you are South Asian and she dumps you, consider that a blessing in disguise...you no longer have to waste your time on someone who doesn't care to know the real and genuine you.

Perhaps where you are right now, women don't know enough about your culture. Perhaps you should try to explain to people about the area's culture, food, people, religion, etc...that's how friendships are formed and can ensue into a relationship. You just never know.

No biggie...time to brush up on it...I find that people that are the most curious about other cultures will ask a lot of questions! LOL, my boyfriend is Nigerian but I was married to a Nigerian before....I think one of the points of attraction for my boyfriend is that I can kinda speak their slang language and I understand it fairly well which no American woman he has ever dated could do that..LOL!!!

I've got to run. Have an awesome day and I hope you meet that special someone soon!

No actually I think being more into my culture is going to create major disadvantages, repped you for helping me though.

Default Size Does Matter

Let's just skip all of the bull. I know what you are thinking, and yes, size does matter.
