I'm an indian female living in a predominantly white city in Canada. I'm attractive, have a very toned body, light skinned and often get mistaken as a latina. I'm very flirtatious and when I'm into a guy i make it blatantly obvious that I'm into him. I'm very friendly, bubbly and sociable. But I never get approached or hit on by dudes like my white friends, although I'm just as attractive.
Lots of girls feel like they are avoided by guys, in this case it seems like the easiest reason to grab onto is the superficial differences between Caucasians and Asians (Indians).
For other girls, they wonder if it's because they are too fat, too skinny, too blonde, too brunette, too preppy, or too emo... Truth be told, getting asked out just isn't that common an occurrence for some girls and it's not just because of any one factor.
Maybe you're trying too hard. From what I see in American programmes and reality shows, Indians settled in the west are not as cool or laid back as the Indians in India. They run around , jump into everything, trying to get attention and so on. Well I don't know if all of them are like this. Try to be a bit less bubbly. White guys who visit India often fall in love with indian girls rather than the Indians settled in the west. Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi girls are precious. You're unique in looks and having good family skills. You don't have to try harder.
You're my ideal woman... I'd probably think you were taking. May or may not approach depending on circumstance. You approaching may put me on the right path to get the interest clues. But I do hear the really attractive women get hit on a lot less. P. S. Marry me?
I need picture to decide babe :) Being mistaken as Latina doesn't automatically make every guy think you're attractive though.
What is wrong with all the Indians here? If you don't get approached it's either the people around you don't find you attractive, or your personality turn them off. Nothing to do with you being Indian. I am Indian and have ZERO problem with guys (Asian, Black, Arab, Latin, White) so I really don't understand the dating problem that other Indians are facing. I've been approached by pretty much all races but of course not ALL of the men of these races find me attractive. You can't fit everyone's preference.
Sometimes guys are intimidated to approach girls they think will turn them down. You already said you have a high standard for men, have you developed a reputation of turning down offers perhaps? That would scare suitors away quickly.
"Often get mistaken as a Latina" is that a good or a bad thing? O. o
I'd say you probably just have high standards or maybe you haven't met someone who fits with your personality yet. Maybe (I doubt it's because of race) you come off as hard to approach, are you quiet, serious, have a resting bitch face etc?
