You live in the South right?
It is generally tougher to meet people in conservative states regardless of your looks, personality, or confidence.
Try socializing near college towns or other cities in your state and see if you come up with different results.

and yet most people refuse to acknowledge that racism is bigger in certain areas than others

What is handsome to one, is ugly to another. And most women do not go around telling men how handsome they are, or how ugly they are.

There is an old saying, "Beauty Is In The Eyes Of The Beholder".

That is why you see so many really good looking women, married to very far less than handsome men.

Or, maybe she's materialistic and he's got money.

Or, maybe he's charming with a good sense of humor.

Or, maybe she is getting it righteously every night.

Or - fill in the blank. I think the point is that women are attracted to men for myriad reasons. Lucky for all of us that we don't all want the same in life, huh?

Guys get complimented on their looks all the time. Or has that not been your experience?

You probably spend too much time asking your dates how good-looking they think you are. Stop that right now.

Hmm. This poster sounds an awful lot like bluemoonpie, that person who claimed to be a dark-skinned black woman who couldn't get any attention because of her skin color.

But yeah, I've known a few guys who didn't believe they were handsome when they heard it. They were usually guys who had been fat or gangly as kids and grew into their looks in late adolescence and young adulthood. So, it's not like your case where you think you're good-looking but no one says that to you.

I'm a young black female who's spent considerable time in many regions of this country, including the deep south, and I get comments from people of all ethnic backgrounds. If people think you're attractive and worth approaching, they will let you know it no matter what color you are.

This describes me to a T. I'm fabulously gorgeous and hardly seem to know it myself.

1) You seem to be very inexperienced so you may only see "You're really hot/sexy/handsome" as a compliment. You probably don't notice the smiling or the way they stand or when they touch your shoulder or why they are talking to you or any of the other signs of flirting. Just because someone hasn't offered to **** you doesn't mean that they are not interested in you.

2) You probably aren't attractive if you don't see it or see any results. But only posting a picture can get a clearer answer.

We are going to pretend that a asian guy will be treated the same way in the south as he will in the west, you guys lack so much life experience.
