Most Helpful Guy
<-- green dinosaur (also, a white guy)
I dated an Indian American girl in high school and college who happened to be a good friend for over a year before we started dating. I was the one who first brought up getting more serious, but she shrugged it off until she finally called me while away at college and said she wanted to start dating. I have a suspicion that it was related to her hearing that I had started dating other girls, but we never really talked about why *then* and not before.
After her, I hooked up with an Asian American girl at college and wound up dating her for almost three years. She lived on my hall, but we had never talked before then. She threw herself at me out of the blue. There's really no better way to put it.
