    Yes, fresh of the boat so to say. I suppose it is because you have less in common with them. To be honest I can understand it.
    I see :lol:

    Each to their own I suppose. I know people who have gone to India to get married, probably more common for the Men to do this, but I also know a few Women who have done the same thing.

    Well, my last girlfriend was a Japanese exchange student so I guess I just don't have the same problem with cultural differences as the OP. I just think that there are more important critereon to a relationship than having been brought up in the same country :dontknow:
    I know I'm being a little facetious but I'm sure you understand where I'm coming from. I, for example, spent from just after my birth until around 14 years old in a variety of different countries and didn't actually spend more than a few weeks holiday in the UK but I am very much British even without having been here the majority of my life.

    What, would you say, makes you very much British as opposed to anything else?

    I don't think not being brought up in the same country is as much of a problem than just not understanding the norms and values of someone from somewhere else. If someone can understand and appreciate then it's all good.

    I expect no buses at all then 3 at a time :yep:

    Sarcasm, maybe?

    Probably the fact that my family is British and when we went to a new country we always introduced ourselves as British. It's been my identity through my childhood. My dad was also always representing Britain wherever we went so I guess that counts too.

    She's Indian from what I gather and therefore probably means FOTB brown asians. I guess the generalisations are that they're using you to try and get a passport, they tend to have 'backward' views of women and are apparently overprotective (like prevents their girlfriends going out to clubs and partying and whatnot) because of the society they lived in, etc.

    I don't think British Asians have an issue with other races being from other nations

    I think it's specifically other Asians being fresh off the boat.

    if an Asian guy was from Australia and an Asian girl was from England I doubt it would be viewed in the same way.

    To answer your question though, I cannot give you an exact location of where all the handsome Asian men are.
    That's only because I don't post my address on the Internet.

    She probably means an Indian Hindu rather than Asian. Don't even bother with oriental Asians.

    You're Asian? :zomg: I didn't imagine you being Asian. :lol:

    OP, agree with what someone said above about keeping your mind open, of course you're entitled to having tastes and preferences but that may limit you. To answer your question though, I cannot give you an exact location of where all the handsome Asian men are.
    I can understand the surprise, my friends say I act 'white'
    i dont have many 'asian' characteristics other than my skin colour... and taking my shoes off when i walk inside someones/my house :pierre:

    They're right, I thought you were white. I imagined you as a ginger white guy so...I was pretty far off I'm guessing. :lol:

    Yes of course, I shall imagine you as Asian George Clooney.
