Okay, not fishing for compliments or anything, I'm kind of ranting. I am a dark skinned indian girl and when I was younger I was even bullied by my indian 'friends' who had grown up in the UK like me. It kind of left me feeling conscious of my skin colour and I know I will never feel pretty because in my society skin colour is all they care about. For example, my cousin showed a picture of his girlfriend to my family. First thing his mum said was 'oh, she's a bit dark.' It's just so frustrating! When I go back to India all the sales people are trying to sell me bleaching creams and I'm like, why do I want to bleach and get reduce my body's ability to protect me from the sun? I kind of look like this girl (Anchal Joseph fron ANTM) with similar features, hair and body type.
And, my parents only let me date indian guys, which is annoying as they seem to be the most judgmental about this.

If you look anything like her, then you're gorgeous :) I'm a dark skinned Indian girl too! I was bullied when I was younger, but those people shouldn't matter and those who matter wouldn't care. And boys who're judgmental of your skin colour, will never be the right person for you. Don't try to change what yourself, you're beautiful just the way you are :)1
