    I'm Asian and I have never had a white friend. I went to multi cultural school/college/university, but I can look back and say I've never made a white friend. All my friends are Asian or black, I just don't seem to click with white people. Now that I've graduated and I've moved out of the city to where there is not many coloured people I'm finding it very hard to interact with them. I have tried making friends and socialising and have found some very interesting white people but they just don't seem to be interested in me? Does everyone prefer socialising with their own race? I would prefer not to as I can learn more and experience a different lifestyle with people of other cultures

    I am quite a closed off individual, but I do try to socialise. How can I come off as more interesting to others?

    Do they respond and seem interested in you? And do you ask most of the questions

    I initiate convo, but i get given one word answers and no questions asked back. And say if someone else were to approach the same person I'd notice they're a lot more likely to put effort in

    In all fairness, not all the time they're interested, I'm Asian too so you do get an odd look at times etc. But if persistent they will see that you are genuine and that you want to get to know them.
