I look mixed because I have most of my Moms features, yet I am not as dark as most Hispanics. That is how most know that I am mixed.

You would be amazed at how many people think, I look Asian, when I have no Asian background whatsoever. It can get very frustrating, because I know that the girl I like is not attracted to people who look Hispanic or Asian.
Do you look like a Filipino ? Many Mexicans look like Filipinos

I don't think so. My family does not think so.

See my profile pic and decide for yourself.

PS: I hope not, because I know that she is not attracted to any men who look Asian.

If you are half Mexican or Puerto Rican,you actually might have some Asian backround via the Aztecs or Taino.

You said you look Asian. Filipinos are the only Asians similar to Latinos as they are Asian Hispanics.

And there is nothing you can do about that......quit torturing yourself and move on.

For a relationship to work.....there has to be MUTUAL attraction.

I don't believe that I look Asian. However, Many others have said I do.

I can honestly state that I have no knowledge of any Asian background, nor does my parents.

I don't understand why everyone assumes that I am Filipino or Chinese, when I am Hispanic?

Filipinos look very similar to Mexicans as Philippines was ruled by Mexico for 250 years during the Spanish occupation of the Philippines.

None of that really matters as far as this girl is concerned.

It doesn't really matter why she isn't attracted to you.....she isn't and that is all there is to it.

Believe me.....being attracted to someone who isn't attracted to you.....has happened to ALL OF US.

I am 60 years old. I have been attracted to many men in my life who never gave me a second glance.....because, for whatever reason.....they were not attracted to me. There have been men who were attracted to me.....and I felt no attraction to them at all. That is just the way it goes.

The trick is to find someone who you are attracted to, who also finds you attractive. That has also happened to me........and it will happen to you too.

How can any one make a general statement that mixed race people are unattractive?? I am an old man and have seen many attractive people of different race and mixed race.

You have missed my point completely, you know she is not attracted to you yet you continue to waste your time wondering how to pursue her and make her yours.

It is not going to happen because she is not going to allow it.

You are very handsome and I see nothing unattractive about you however, you are the same age as my nieces and a couple of my grandchildren so my opinion may not count since I'm much older.

You need to be with a woman who is going to love you for all of you not just the color of your skin.
Someone who wants to share her life with all of you.

I personally don't think anyone should be ruled out because of the color of their skin but the reality of the world and humans is that you are at times ruled out because of the color of skin color, eye color, hair color, too thin, not thin enough, too tall, too short, not enough hair, too much hair, etc. etc.

If you continue to want someone who does not want you it will keep you stressed and frustrated all the time, not just part of the time and your own self worth and well being will be affected tremendously.

Why would you voluntarily do that to yourself? Trust me there is not one human on this planet worth all of that aggrivation.

Since you are still young you should not be focusing on one female anyway, you should be out enjoying life.
When the right woman comes along you will know it and you will forget all about this one.
She will become part of a distant memory and you will be greatful she rejected you because the one you find will LOVE ALL OF YOU.
