I am trying to make this more about features rather than race.

I have heard it consistently, Blonde hair and blue eyes are beautiful. As a man with Black hair, olive (or light brown) skin, and brown eyes, I feel kind of a bit pushed aside. I am certain that people have their tastes, that is a given fact of life, yet I also believe that the more people you can win over just by features alone, the easier time you would have.

Thing is, I have a friend who is a Blonde guy with blue eyes, he is thought of as very attractive. Now he is fit and cut, I am getting there, but I feel that no matter what I do, having Black hair, brown eyes, and olive skin will stop me from being viewed as an attractive guy.

Now I always thought "tall dark and handsome" applied but I guess it doesn't here in the USA (at least not in the bible belt). What has been your experience?

I think you have nothing to worry about before you hear "tall, BLOND, and handsome"!

Blonde hair and blue eyes is boring. So is brown hair and brown eyes.

I perfer something more along the lines of dark hair with blue eyes or brown hair and green eyes.

Well, I have blonde hair, and blue eyes...so...what should I say here?!

It seems regional to me, and it is changing. I think more "exotic" looking women are appealing, who are mixed race. Same with men.

I prefer dark hair and dark eyes over anything else. On top of that, if the man has a nice smile...swoon.

Now, now... Not all of us want to dye hair or wear contacts, so we'll have to be boring and disgustingly common and mediocre.

Once I met a woman from Lybia - black hair & green eyes! She was so beautiful! I asked her if that was common coloring there and she said it was. Her whole family was like that.

The fact that 4% of the white population is blond and over 1/3 of women dye their hair blond should answer your question. Besides, everyone should know that they are faking it and few seem to care.

How long have you lived in the United States?

Everybody has their own taste in what is considered attractive and what they like.
