I'm a black male and I am very attracted to Indian women. Unfortunately it seems that the majority of them want nothing to do with black men. I've experienced this online and in person. I also rarely ever see this relationship combination in the real world either. It doesn't bother me much, but I'm wondering if there's a culture issue? Do Indian women feel there is a negative stigma associated with all black men?

They will be very open, if they don't have to deal with the crap they have to put up with their family. The women themselves are not offenders, they just cannot sell a black man to the bigots back home.

Well there are indian women (indian descendents with similar culture) from trinidad and tobago, guyana (basicly central america), and other places in africa and mauritius who are more comfortable with black people since those countries are ethnically half black and half indian. In those countries its not uncommon to see mixed people. In america these women are mostly found in nyc area and florida. Ever see that movie mississippi masala? thats about denzel washington and an indian girl from africa who fall in love. But really man, don't expect to get anyone unless u guys are in love, I never though I would fall in love with a south american but I did, I always pictured myself with either white or indian. Indians are like Italians or hispanic, u have to be serious and mix good with their family or its hard. They don't believe so much in just dating which is what modern people like to do. Become a hindu or become vegetarian and it'll be easier.

Such a shame. So many beautiful Indian women around but they seem to only be interested in white men if they decide to date outside of other Indians.

Depends on where these Indian women are from. I'm sure I don't need to go into detail about the rigid caste system in that country, but if you think someone from a presumed "higher" social standing is going to marry the presumed "bottom feeders" and "untouchables", then you can forget about it. Indians with roots in Africa and the Caribbean are a whole different fiasco though, and the majority of BMIW couples that I know of (around 5 or so) involve Indian women with roots outside of India. Then again, you still get those Indian women raised away from home who are assimilated and go by the whole "race doesn't matter" mantra. No risk, no reward... go big Professor Griff or you will live the rest of your life in that "what if" stage.

Most of the Indian women I used to know only dated Indian men.

Yeah,it's a cultural thing.
I dated an Indian woman for a while,and she told me right up front that her parents would never accept me,because I was black.

But not Fiji though. Guyana is South, not Central America, btw.

I know a few black-Indian folks here in the Northeast, and I just yesterday saw a very dark-skinned Indian man with his Ethiopian girlfriend (who was lighter than he was) at a local bookstore.
