Why do Indian guys not date outside? Like I see Indian girls date outside quite a bit but the guys don't. They always seem to want an Indian girl but the girls aren't as fussed.
As someone from this background, am frustrated with the guys attitude for this. There are other girls out there.

Well people in my community make my love life their business. This sort of thing always happens as much as I don't want it too. Its very easy to say what you said if you don't experience this/can't take a nuanced view of people's cultures.

Indian girls are more popular with white men than Indian guys are with with white women.

That's not true surely?
I'd say its the same but the problem lies with the guys attitude being closed minded; that's why it's less, the guys need to be more open-minded.

Could it be religious reasons? I’d assume most people would rather date someone who has similar religious beliefs to themselves especially if they want to raise kids of the same religion as them. Perhaps this is a thing guys care more about?

I've dated a few desi guys.
Many Indian guys do date women of other nationalities.

There are some families that are very religious, traditionalist or caste obsessed.
Those type of guys often don't date at all or will only date women with the same attitudes.

I am from a Middle Eastern background - I am not so fussy on the basis of race

i've dated a few Indian dudes and i'm pretty sure my Indian flatmate is interested in me right now. but India has a huge population so it obviously varies.

OP not sure why you're frustrated tho. why do you have an interest in Indian guys dating outside Indian women?

Some of it is based on religion.

I also feel quite a lot more guys struggle to find partners than females, but this is just an opinion based on my own personal observation and not any other justification. Another opinion I think is how indian men and their sexuality is portrayed in a negative way with regards to characterisation in movies and the media. Indian men are often portrayed as being "geeks", socially inept, "skinny" etc and this creates a sterotype which may not be attractive to some people.

My parents want me to marry an Indian girl, even from the same part of India, same religion and my parents must already know them -_- such bs.
But I'm sure I can convince them lmao because I've had a British gf for 2 years now 0.o
For my parents, it's more of a cultural thing rather than religion. As they were born in India and that's how they were raised.
I'm at least glad arranged marriage is not in the picture, they understand as they met in Indian equivalence of A level (true love at it's finest lol)

I'm in the exact same boat as you. I don't want to marry an indian girl but am being pressured by family.

My parents don’t care about who I date or marry. For me it’d be more of a compatibility thing. Obviously there will be more like Indian girls I’d be more compatible with in terms of culture, background etc. But like my parents, I don’t care. It’s whoever I meet and click with. (I’m 16), at this point in life I don’t think I can judge that clearly as to who would be good for me long term.

Indian guys actually marry out more than Indian women (whether you look at marriage statistics from the UK, USA, Canada, Aus or Singapore), not by a huge disparity like you get with East asian women/men and black men/black women.

Indian women are actually the least likely out of all groups to date out in Singapore.

If there are no white guys it is safe to say Indian women hardly ever date out but Indian guys actually marry other people of color in decent numbers as well such as East Asian women and Hispanic women.

South Asian men, in general, marry out more than their female counterparts. White guys and Indian women date more than Indian men and white female but if the relationship has no chance of ending in marriage I wouldn't count it as proper relationship.

tbh white women overall have a strong preference for white guys and are the least likely to date/marry out compared to all the other race + gender combo. Even the most radical left-wing white girl that preaches about equality only date a white guy.

The indian girl was rated the lowest not the Indian guy

No interracial marriage statistics and dating statistics are correlated

Indian men also date more white women than reverse too not just marry
