and do guys prefer tan or white skin?

In the west being tan shows that you have time to lay around in the sun or you can afford to go out to an area where you can get sun.
In the east being more pale means you're closer to being western (yay colonialism) and that you have a better indoor job. So it's all cultural.
The best thing to do is just live your life how YOU want to and don't worry about what other people think or may or may not like.8
