He's Russian.. the guy that I like
From russia? Then its possible its cultural (westerns tend to be much more open to interracial relationships then other groups, though I don't know enough about this topic as it pertains to russians so I can't say for sure). Do you know if he actually is uninterested vs. just not sure if your interested vs. being shy?
I wouldn't say that's very true it's just cultural black women are told they should be with black men
@nerdybutlazy What do you mean? I'm refering to reason why white men wouldn't date a black girl, not why a black girl wouldn't date a white man. A lot of white guys are going to be concerned about the issue of race because quite frankly we are the punching bag for that (evil white men, that is how we are portrayed and no one wants to be with some one that sees them as inherently evil or responsible for wrongs simply because the color of their skin). It is true however that a lot of black women get descriminated against by black men and their families for dating white men. My friend is engaged to a black woman and well, her own father has implied she is a race traitor (what ever the hell that is suppose to mean (I mean loyalty to your skin color seems bizarre to me. Just because some one has white skin doesn't mean I can't think they are an asshole (their are a lot of white assholes out their I'm not going to pander to them just because of their skin color))). So I'm not saying that doesn't happen, just that this is not applicable to why white men would avoid dating non white women.
um okay go off
He's actually not
actually not from russia or actually not interested or what? Clarification is needed. I mean its entirely possible he isn't interested, but you stated he was russian which usually means from russia (I mean I'm irish and german, but no one would refer to me as such unless I was from one of those places generally speaking), hence my confusion. So what is the situation?
@nerdybutlazy I honestly have no idea what your talking about or trying to convey.
he's from russian and not interested
Okay so you know he isn't interested, how do you know that its because he is white and you are not? I mean it could be, but how do you know?
he's with a white girl, and he seems conservative
What does conservative have to do with it? Also what does dating a white girl have to do with it? I'm conservative and I have asked out black women, hispanic women and Asian women but I've only been in a relationship with a white woman (not for lack of trying on my part, things just didn't work out). My friend is white and conservative and he is engaged to a black woman. I don't think any of that has anything to do with your situation. I think you just need to find a guy who isn't in a relationship first, other then that I don't see this as much of an issue as you have no reason to presume that this guy (let alone most white guys) is not interetsed in you because of race, but more then likely because he is already in a relationship.
Then it may be more about cultural issues and/or xenophobia.
So? Maybe he's a racist Russian. Are you black or hispanic? Are you Arab? What is your ethnicity/nationality?

This guy that I like is Russian. I'm not white
What race are you?
Iranian is basically White. It's Caucasian/Aryan.
Yes... but it's not the same thing as russian, and definitely not in Europe
And where are you from?
He's Russian.. the guy that I like
Oh. Well has he given you any indication that he only dates white women?
He is with a white girl
Oh. So if he's with someone what difference does it make? Are you just thinking ahead for future guys?
Well I guess I could say I'm just heartbroken..
Ah. Wishing he had chosen you? I've been in that kind of situation. Maybe someday things will be different. I'm not sure if this is a racial preference he has or if he just happened to find her more suitable in a different way. I know that race can sometimes play a part in attraction, and that's beyond his control, but unless he's said something to that effect specifically, I wouldn't assume. As silly as it is in my mind, some people still think of it as culturally taboo to be in mixed relationships. I don't understand that, and I wish people had more sense than that, but not all of them do. I can give you the advice I give most of my heartbroken female friends if you'd like?
Sure, what's the advice? And he only was looking to sleep with me
My first advice to them is to forget about the guy and find a good woman. Women are better looking and generally more nurturing. If they refuse to find a woman, I make the point that all men are ugly anyway. Don't get hung up on some ugly fool that doesn't appreciate you. If the guy is going to be ugly no matter what, it only makes sense to find a guy that will treat you right. We men are easily replaced.
If the feelings not mutual, it's not worth it anyways. Also, Russians often get a wrap for being more racist. It doesn't mean he is, but if that is the case it's another reason for you to not be with him.
Why are they racist?
Russians and Italians have a wrap for being more racist than other Europeans. Doesn't mean all are, but it's more common. Russia is more uniformed than other countries and generally has less diversity. Countries like this can be less accepting.
Well you in luck, I'm Russian too and similar age to you.What race, country are you or your ancestors are from?What country are you in now?How long he is in this country?Just to give closer view on your situation, if you don't want my view just ignore this comment.
I'm Persian, in Canada. He's been here for a while I think
I'm white Russian, live in UK for ~20 years.A I'm still do not have too much interaction with Persian people I would put them together with all Muslim people and would find it not very likely to date or anything more with a Persian woman as I was brought up as Catholic only now not religious.Yes, I know that there are different religions there too and I would need to know it soon enough, do not use it as a flag just let me know. As some women even not being Muslim wearing a lot of their attributes, who are from there.I would like to date Persian woman and don't care what would others say, but for it to go any further we would need to be compatible.As I heard that Canada is very multicultural and it should not be an issue for any person who lived there for a while.In my case I would like to know that she likes me and then decide what to do with it, rather then never know. And hints or any other games never work, just talk and preferably without group of people as I could suggest, that it could be prank or pressure to give my decision and you would get automatic rejection, even in case I had a crush on you.Just ask, 'What would you think, if I would like you more then friend?' or something of this sort.Again, that would work on me and I know nothing about him and I presume you asking bout marrying one eventually, not just one night thing as that would be different story and probably not me telling it.
Oh... yeah I have no idea how things are in Russia ofc...
He's Russian, the guy that I like
I dont really know anything about Russian men, sorry :(
Then I’d say ask him out. You have nothing to lose.
He's russian, the guy that I like
I'm trying to say why won't they consider girls that are not white, like them to date
Oh okay ^^ I don't know, I don't have anything against non-white girls.
He's Russian.. the guy I like
Preference is always one of the key factors
i would give you a shot. have to get to know each other 1st though.
Its not you, men are moving away from relationships because they cost us a lot more then they cost women and quite frankly with the modern system that we have now, men don't get much if anything out of relationships. So you want him to stick around you need to show him its worth it (currently he can get sex easily enough that this isn't enough to get a man to stick around, a lot of women however are only offering that and nothing else so their is no reason to spend all that time, energy, and money on a woman if you can get that one thing for cheaper elsewhere).
Not true I'm South Asian and married to white guy
He's russian.. the guy that I like
That's cute 😊
He's Russian.. the guy I like
😂😂😂 that’s exactly what I’mThinkin but is it not true
@kellsher With some white guys yes, but others love certain non-white girls for their personalities not their race.
I believe that
I don't care about race I'll date any race
@veral I don't know what that emoji means lol
How (if you don't mind me asking) have you determined he won't date outside of his race?
Cause he's with a white girl
Lol. Most recently my. last relationship was with a woman of the same race as me but even she knew That I am extremely attracted to women outside my race. You can't simply determine who a person likes or doesn't like by their current lover. There is so much more to a person than what us easily glimpsed from the outside. I hope this helps you.. 😊
Oh, hecc.I don't know about Russian dudes. I haven’t been with one.You never know, tho. He may like you, too. So, go for it. 💜In the end, we are all human. 🤷🏾♀️If he doesn’t like you, then whatever. You will find someone better. 💜💜
Yes maybe now more common but that mindset still exists that they prefer their own kind..
Some do and some don't. I'm sure that you've encounter white guys that Love Asian women or Black women. I have a friend who likes black women but he always seems to end up with a white girl. Maybe its lack of access to meet?
Why only Asian & black?
its not, i just mentioned them as an example
Has he shown interest?
No he didn't
He might not be interested.
Why only Asians?
You said non-white Asian is POC. I gues Hispanic and white as well
A lot of others also said Asians. Why is what I'm wondering.. there are so many other races
Go for it then. i like the russians
He doesn't like me
Well that's not so good, I feel your pain though
Have you tried asking him out?
