Do you see Indian men or just brown men in general with White women in Southern California

Both. Seriously, not too many people here have hangups about interracial dating here... it happens across all lines and no one really cares one way or the other.

I live in the US. I think the interracial pairings are most common depending on where you live. In which state. In some states white women with black men are most common and in others asian women with white guys. However statistics here show that black hispanic women and native american women are most likely to be involved in interracial marriages in comparison to asian and white hispanic women which are decreasing.

In the US, apparently white men with asian women and black men with white women are the most common couples, the rest don't really exist. It is unheard of even in big cities here to see asian men with white women or to see white women dating anything other than white men (with a few dating black men).

Currently I am in Canada (only been here a few months) and I notice that I have seen a lot of Asian and Brown men dating White women here, it isn't like that in the USA at all. White man with Asian woman is still the most common though.

How about your country?

Oh and not to get off topic but why are east asian woman/white guy and black guy/white girl pairings so common? Is it driven by lust or love or are asian women whitewashed and the white girls curious to know what a black guy can offer sexually than a white guy? I have seen many white women be very forward with black men to the point it makes the black man uncomfortable as well as east asian women be forward with white men. It's interesting to see. I also have a feeling these pairings are instigated by the woman's beliefs in what that other race of man can offer them that their own race can't be it lust or more, or just stereotypes they like to believe.

Nationwide, the Finnish-Russian pairings are the most common ones. Wait, that isn't interracial. I suppose Finnish-Swedish isn't either. So then it would be Finnish-South Asian (Thai, Vietnamese). Finnish-Turkish and Finnish-Moroccan comes next. As we don't hold stats for race or ethnicity, we can only guess. These five mentioned are less than a fifth of all multicultural marriages, but we don't know what the country of origin the people are from. Ranges from Australian to Congolese, those five just seem to stand out.

From my own experience, people tend to couple up with other Europeans, mainly from the larger western nations. Of course due to studies and work. Italians, Spaniards, Brits and Germans. France and the Benelux countries seem to be a bit of a black hole. Americans are another bigger subject, but also Canadians and Australians, as the younger generations tend to visit their origins and fall in love in the process.

White people are seen as the 'default' in the Western world and due to the media, advertising and films in other countries as well. So women will typically have a crush on an American or British actor or pop star and that will form the template for their ideal partner. The popularity of Asian pop culture might be tempering that a bit, but I think being a white male or female is definitely a positive attribute in Asia.
