I have been a part of this community since February of this year but I haven't made an intro for myself. So, I'll make one.
I'm a Hispanic male living in the bay area (I am also from the East Bay like Winston). I am in college right now (community college) studying to an engineer. As with many guys here, my dating and party life here sucks. I have had one girl (a white-american girl) but like most girls in the US, she's full of shit. I am tired of the bullshit people here give, always being fake, never giving value to true things, women being so dam ugly and thinking they deserve some guy who looks and has the same wallet like Brad Pitt, the hypocrisy of the people, and of the boringness and lack of life people have. My parents are from Mexico, so I have been exposed to more things than what many people here in the US have been and I have actually lived in Mexico for a bit.
I am the type of guy who is into more into Mediterranean looking girls (Iberian, Italian, Turkish, Israeli, etc), as the girl I was into most was from Spain (didn't work though as she's in Europe and I'm here). If you're curious about my look, I have a psuedo-arab look, as I have been told I can pass as an Egyptian or any other North-African guy, and even as Indian from India.
Here's my picture (edited parts of it to hide my more distinctive features):
Well, that's all I can say, as I am not the type of guy who just rants on and on. I like to keep things short.
you're too americanized....
I often find that only Americans in their teens and twenties, or foreigners who have been exposed to the american culture, care about race/skin/phenotypes and so on..... with foreigners those things dont even register!!!
drop all those labels, stop calling yourself a hispanic because as soon as u set foot in latin america, everyone will call u AMERICAN...... and simply educate yourself so u can get outta the USA, because it sucks.
World traveler, questions about women from a certain country? Ask!!! I can help
It sounds like you'd do well with some North European or Eastern Europeans. Med women are a tough nut to crack i'd go more for women with that look in Poland or something. Your ambiguous almost middle eastern looks could be problematic but probably not that serious as long as you establish you're an American. Montreal might be good for you too since some francophone women love Spanish speaking dudes.
Welcome and glad you were able to think outside that cultural bubble. These days I don't even bother telling people of my experiences or travel abroad in the u.s. because it almost always elicits negativity or judgmental attitudes.
Welcome to HappierAbroad! I also grew up in the Bay, and have been around the East Bay a lot too.
I believe you'd enjoy Latin America and southern Europe very much. I know Eurobrat can certainly vouch for Italy.
I've read in another one of your posts that you're from Jalisco. I've been there a few times, and have also been to the neighboring states of Sinaloa, Guanajuato, and Michoacan. In fact, I had a really good gf from Michoacan with really "ambiguous" Mediterranean looks too.
when I'm among Americans, I identify as Hispanic or Mexican-American (I never say that I'm brown or things like that).
And I know what I am called in Latin-America (I have lived in Mexico and I have been to Mexico so many times that I have lost count). Amongst Mexicans, I identify as either American or Jaliscience (person from Jalisco, since both of my parents are from Jalisco).
well, I could go to Mexico and marry a Mexican girl (I speak good Spanish, I have lived in Mexico for a time when I was a kid and I have been to Mexico more times than I can count off the top of my head). the problem is, I just don't want to get married to a Mexican girl (I have been around Mexicans my whole life and I just want something different. And I would be down for girls that Mediterranean looking, as that's the type that I have been most into.
I would be down for Eastern European girls but with Northern European, things change because I am not into girls that are too pale.
very true, but I think I'll try the challenge. at least they're a million times better than american women.
I always say that I'm Mexican, it makes things much better, since if I say I'm American, it only brings in more questions.
for as bad as a lot of american men have it bad with the american women, a lot of them deserve it for being such morons or self-righteous assholes.[/quote]
you already know then how hard the scene is here.
latin-america is good, but I want to see other places.
my parents are from Jalisco, while I'm from the east-bay. I am glad you have been to those places, as not many asians go there, and don't see just how much potential they can do.
