If I didn't see your screen name, I might have guessed middle eastern (Syrian?) but probably Hispanic.

I am from Spain. The thing is that I have an slightly darker shade of skin, so many times I've been asked if I am Middle Eastern, Latino...or even from Pakistan,lol. (well, things stop being funny when I got stopped by the cops for a random frisk and search every now and again, or women grab their purses tight when I am around...)

But other people say "nonsense, you are just brunette, but you look as local as anyone else". So I guess it's a very subjective stuff, all this "looks" thing.

I think there is Moor of a chance you might have another race in your lineage.

You do realize that the Moors ruled and/or had a presence on the Iberian Peninsula (Spain, Portugal and Catalonia) for approximately 700 years, right.

My first guess would be hispanic, mostly likely Cuban only because I was raised in Florida so I can sometimes tell the difference. Whatever he is, he's handsome.

So true! Not cuban to me. I would say he is from Syria or Iraq.

I know, but Arab looks are not common, it's just a minority. Spanish people look like Portuguese, Italian, Greek, etc. White skin, black hair, dark eyes. Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas could be good examples.
