The guy in the first pic looks masculine and that is attractive to a straight woman.
I agree with you but "white" southern sorority girls in college still flock to the boy band look until they get a little bit older and wiser. The "bisexual" is fun at parties and will stop at third base. The guy in the first pic might not take no for an answer!!!

Your friend has a more flattering hairstyle, and his eyebrows have not been "shaped". So, of course he will be seen as more attractive.

IMHO, you both have lips that have too much shape, and eyes that are too 'expressive'. I personally like men who look more stoic. You have a better neck than does he.

Slender men of Mediterranean heritage, to me, need long hair and beards, to look good.

Anyway, your friend has a very underdeveloped body. Bodies are vastly more important than faces. If you work out, you will soon eclipse him where attractiveness goes. And if he loses his hair, nobody will look at him twice.

My sons aren't white, either. And even though DH and I have little ski-slope bunnyrabbit noses, our kids turned out with very substantial noses. But they have huge, hulking bodies (growing up in a fitness-obsessed family has its rewards). Their bad coloring has not been an impediment. They do have bamabangs, though, which work quite well. They only sleep with blondes, and only with blondes in good degree programs and from good families. They are attractive enough to be able to not even consider girls who wear makeup or have skanky painted fingernails. They chose schools out here, partly because they thought that girls in the South looked like a bunch of hookers (the makeup... the pink toenails... ).

So yes!!! You CAN be more attractive than your friend. It's just about putting in the gym-time and packaging yourself right.

and yes I do think a guy who is ethnic and takes care of himself should have a fair shot at dating all races, including White women

do you feel animosity towards darker men that date White females?
What is your ethnicity?

My numbers are not correct but my point is remaining youthful does not equate to attractiveness or remaining attractive. Ugly is ugly even if it is youthful. That being said, non white does not equal ugly. No correlation at all. The thing is, if you are initially attracted to someone with light pigmentation and stay with them past 30 years of age and beyond, it doesn't matter if they age more than they would have if they had darker pigmentation because you are still attracted to them regardless of aging.

Now if i were lining up and picking 10 non whites and 10 whites at 90 years of age...
ok, but typically what I've observed is, without the botox, those with very pale skin tend to begin aging in their 30s. I notice that even white women with darker complexions tend to remain youthful far longer than the Nordic pale-blond-blue type women.

"They have huge, hulking bodies and they only sleep with blondes in good degree programs and from good families and do not consider girls who wear make up or have "skanky" painted fingernails because they look like hookers?" Good thing these blonde sluts from good schools and families overlook your sons' bad coloring!

"Bodies are vastly more important than faces?" Yes, if your a pack mule.

"Bamabangs"???

However, I have dated the whitest of white in Atlanta and elsewhere because I am easy going, educated and well rounded and sincerely interested in other people.

You are holding yourself back and perhaps these "white" women can see right through you. I imagine any woman worth her salt that has real options would see right through you as well. Until you drop your own self insecurities and self interests you are going to keep getting struck down by quality women regardless of which city you are in.
Italian is white, and hispanics are not discriminated against as much by white women in terms of dating.

He is correct that is is rare to see white women with asian, Indian, Arab, etc.

I can't speak to Asian, but Arab men are obsessed with white women, especially blonde. I think that Indian men are too.

We are a status symbol.

SO, if you are seeking status symbols, you cannot complain that white women are too, and Indian is not it.

You are hot, though, and when you get older it will be easier imo no matter where you are, but at your age, yeah, somewhere other than the south/southwest.

You are good looking. Maybe you should consider living in a different part of the country.

I think where the OP went wrong is going to a college that has a huge Greek social life, when with a bit of research beforehand he might have learned that his community college background was going to keep him from participating.
I don't care for his movies but, Robert Pattison is attractive (in my opinion). He kind of reminds me of Jason Priestly from the 90210 show (way back when). I wasn't sure who Zac Efron is, so I googled him. He has a metro/bi sexual look, and that's a huge turn off to me. But I guess some college aged girls have very different opinions.
