    Just try to talk and approach them Priya.

    I'm an Indian guy and I've only dated Indian girls. So people like me do exist.

    Although ethnicity is not really important for me, but how much a girl values Hinduism definitely is.

    Because you sit around feeling sorry for yourself instead of making the first move.

    Have you considered making the first move? Because that's acceptable in 2017.
    Why does the girl have to make the first move all the time nowadays?

    Wtf? It's not racism it's called being honest...I don't know if u noticed but white women in general tend to marry white men...same with African people..and Indian people etc...it's just natural because u can relate more because you are from the same ethnic background..for gods sake I dislike people who call every little thing racism..stop misusing the word
    Being honest is nothing to do with this. Being honest about being racist doesn't make it any better.

    And how am I "misusing the word?"

    The dictionary definition is:

    "Prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior."

    Not estimating someone from another race as being good enough for consideration as a boyfriend , purely on racial grounds, not from any other assessment of character, is a textbook example of someone exactly meeting that definition.

    When did I ever say that my race is superior?? I didn't even hint it!!! What's wrong with u? U are taking offence for no reason...I was simply saying who I would be interested in because I would relate with them more because I am from the SAME CULTURE as them.::so calm down ...I never said anything about good enough either

      It's not racist to have a sexual preference. You can't decide who you're sexually attracted to.
      Yes, it is racist. Just because it is implicit (rather than something the racist 'decided' to discriminate against) doesn't reduce that fact.

        Nothing wrong with having a racial preference. It’s more about shared identity and norms than it is about feeling superior. Not at all comparable to actual discrimination or antagonism rooted in racism. I didn’t expect you to get so triggered over this.

        I am getting confused here.

        I replied to a poster called Mayflower, you (Tango) responded to that, and now are being defensive about my reply to something the original poster (Mayflower) said.

        Are you and Mayflower one and the same poster or something??

        Fair enough, that makes a lot of sense. I accept your point.

        So why is it that every single time a thread like this is made you get guys insisting the women to make the first move or approach first?

        No one’s insisting women make the first move. They’re just advising OP specifically that if she’s not getting approached for whatever reason, then there’s no shame in making the first move herself. No one owes OP a date; she’s not entitled to something just because of her sex. The same applies to guys who whine about not getting dates.
