If that's the case...it's very ironic considering how things are in India in terms of social stigma with regards to dating etc.

*shrugs* If there is a stereotype, it's of misogyny or nerdish asexuality, not curry.

However, it's a generational thing. I don't think the younger men are seen that way. They weren't when I was in my 20s, at any rate. As long as Sierra got me going on movies (and all four of the stars in Kama Sutra:A Tale of Love are gorgeous), rent [URL="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0433416/"]The Namesake[/URL]. That will explain a lot of it.

No I don't find him attractive as an Indian or an Italian. And trust me I'm a sucker for fair-to-medium skinned Caucasians with a lot of dark hair. Introducing the man in photo as Antonio or as Asok wouldn't make a difference at all.

I can understand this question from the perspective that he is Indian and is often mistaken for being Italian. I wouldn't be surprised if many people think he's Italian.

=D Awesome, I have only been with a Latina but we broke up, she was kinda violent and rowdy when it came to temper. She was calm when I met her, we started off hugging, ended with me dodging flying objects.

Now to those that posted on this thread:

I admire you guys for tolerating this thread but I did not believe I got my point across clearly. So let me get it across clearly:

Where I live in the US, Italians are seen as being attractive. Tell a woman you are Italian here (okay well tell a White woman you are Italian) and they will go nuts, tell em you are Indian and, well, you get the point.

The vibe in the area I live in and on some sites I post on is that an average Italian man is more attractive than David Beckham. According to this one site I posted on, a Bollywood actor would be considered below average in Italy when it comes down to looks.

So I posted this thread for well, opinions. Now that I got them, the mod can close this thread, or keep it running.

I would be surprised if they do. See another thing, talking to some Italians in my area, they say it is rare to see Italians with Black hair and tanned skin in most cases, they say majority of them look just like your average nordic European.

So stop trying to date white women. It really is that simple, why do so many people have such a hard time with this concept?

Wondering why the original question of comparison. To me, the man in the photo is very handsome. I have seen east Indian men equally handsome and they did not smell of curry....however their houses did!

Nonsense, White women are the national standard of beauty.

I find it funny though, as much trash as I hear from White women about Indian and Middle Eastern men both online and offline, in real life whenever Indian dudes date out it is with White girls.
