I'm talking of what I know, Parisian women are extremely snobbish, the creed or skin color doesn't play a role as long is he is well dressed (that is a prerequisite) has a higher social level (wouldn't date a working class guy) and of course a lot of $$$$ (or € rather). The difference with the US women is that they don't like mscular men but only "metrosexuals".

A fair number of women in the US do this, too.

True, but European relationships seem more intellectually-based.

Well that is the biggest load of crap I have ever read on this forum. A guy who looks like that would have tons of women all over him in any part of the US.

American women and European women have fairly similar tastes in men as far as appearances go. I'd say the biggest difference are more along the lines of how men dress. A trendy/stylish man will do a bit better in Europe, while a more rugged looking man will do a bit better in America.

The guy in that picture is very attractive. He looks like a model. Models are typically attractive. Most men don't look like models period. You should show a picture of a regular everyday guy.

To the OP, I live in Australia which is very Anglicised and that guy would have no problem finding dates here, women would be swimming over him. Lmao. No matter what race/culture you are, if you're good looking, you'll attract people.

Anyway, I'll answer your question. I think Europeans are less hung up about race than Americans and tend to judge more on culture. Just an observation I've made. I know an American Asian guy who spent two years in Europe and while, derogatory Asian stereotypes are quite prevalent in the Western world, and they don't seem to be as common in Europe, and in Europe, girls found him interesting and exotic, in America, they did not.

The problem for you is that somehow Indians, who swarmed the Silicon Valley, managed to make a bad impression. At least on girls you tried to date.

Things are likely to be different in some other place in America. Unless you happen to approach snobbish girls, fixed on ethnicity
