I’m a guy of east-Indian origin. In fact, I am an Indian national. I am also single, and living in Sweden.
Now, where I come from, arranged marriage is the norm. But I dont think that will be the right way for me to go and I would like to meet someone on my own. But the fact of the matter is that where I grew up, we were never taught how to interact and court someone of the opposite sex; on the contrary, we were actively discouraged from doing so, and warned of dire consequences.
That being said, I’ve been working on growing out of this conditioning of mine and been trying to meet someone here in Scandinavia. I’ve had good feedback from women (unavailable ones) that I am charming, handsome and funny. Well, thanks for that, but in reality, I feel invisible to the women here. When compared to European guys, for some reason, I feel less entitled and that the women here prefer men with a local background more.
I hope I’m wrong about what I’ve written above. I’d appreciate any advice regarding how I can increase my chances of meeting someone here. I also think it would be great if it came from women, since I’ve only been talking to men mostly, and it clearly hasn’t worked so far…

I lived in Pakistan and Bahrain where arranged marriage was the norm too. My ex was Pakistani. Those men didn't care about their upbringing they will stare u down like they own ur soul until u say "mujse shaadi karogi?" Lol
Umm u need to look at women see if she's alone or with someone. Make a chance to say hi. Trust that a lot of women want the guy to make the first move. Sometimes joining a dating site helps or using social media. However if you're trying to meet someone outside of the World Wide Web, you have to go by your instinct and approach a girl. If a few ignore u or give u negative feedback, that's not the rest of the fish in the sea. That's only a few in the ocean. The only way you will meet someone is if you try. That being said good luck0
