To the OP: Sorry if you're getting rejected by the women you want to date. I doubt if it has anything to do with your ancestry or ethnicity. Most likely has something to do with your attitude about women and dating.

Most accurate post on this thread.

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.
This is the most disappointing, self-hating thing I've read all day. Lol!

And this is why I voted no. I just KNEW you were THAT type. People who like to compare races usually are.

Me either. A section of the small city I live in has a lot of Middle Easterners. I've never heard anyone criticize their looks. They have a unique look while the Pakistanis have a more blended look (I assume with Iranian influence). But most of them have polished appearances and handsome faces and a certain graciousness. I think many like to wear spicy and woodsy fragrance oils but I've never noticed "curry".

But I don't believe that Italians are stallions, either, and I grew up in a community with a lot of Italians.

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 hate to agree but it is true. I am an Asian woman in America and this is the "definition" of beauty, at least the message is trying to convince younger (and different ethnicity) people like me. If you are trying to find answers to encourage you, then you'll get tons of mix messages from women (and men). Some people find Indian men to be attractive. Some don't. Some people find White women (or Italian men) to be attractive, some do not. It doesn't matter to me. As long as you are attractive (in my eyes so not everyone is attractive) and you have a good heart, I'm all for it.

Lets compare the guy to the Italian soccer team. Here is a better picture.

Do you ask girls you go out with what ethnicity they are?

By your logic, or perhaps lack of it, I could also be Latino, or Greek.

You have the kind of look that could be anything from Spanish ( from Spain ) to Scandinavian even. i say that because I am Swedish but NOBODY believes me. I have tan skin , hazel eyes and have brown,long straight hair. I do not look like a stereotypical Swede. You definitely are European!

Before I go anywhere with them yes I do try to find out more about them including ethnicity, then again down south people aren't politically correct about the words race or ethnicity.

PS: Dead thread is dead thread, why are you people still keeping it going?

It's obvious to everyone reading this thread that this thread is all about your personal life, or lack thereof. I'm sorry that you're not enjoying dating success.

As for me, I'm a married woman, very comfortable in my own skin, and have experienced many, many, many minutes of pleasure with my husband. But thanks for your concern.
