Where do people welcome White Americans, rather than view them with suspicion?
Where would it be easiest to make friends who would invite you into their homes, or to a party where there are girls?
Here's a couple of comments from another thread that got me thinking about this question:

Nowhere in Europe is the place, even Moldova and the poorest fringes of Eastern Europe and the Baltics. People have their own lives, their own trouble. If they find you interesting, they would be curious and connect to you.eurobrat wrote:
Social circles are everywhere, but it doesn't mean a society is open to meeting foreigners. Italy is a place where they don't care to meet foreigners or immigrants, in fact they're despised.
Now I know someone will pipe up and say "know the language before you go". Wrong. I know English damn well, and making friends in the USA is still hard. So language is not the be-all. Second, noone knew English when they came to America before World War Two. Noone. (Except the Irish). They learned in-country. Besides, language school in country is cheaper and comes with benefits like a place to stay and a visa.eurobrat wrote:You fail to tell everyone those are people who cultivated relationships that took 2,4,5 years to when you're able to invite them over. You can't just rush things and make friendships as easily as other countries.publicduende wrote:
At least in Italy, it's not about the size and quality of the house, but the quality of the people (and, why not, the food and wine too) that matter.
So let's assume you have your average HA egghead, over-literate from the internet, White or can pass, American-born, not rich, can scratch out a living online to start, hopes for integration in to the local economy later, owns and dabbles in a Pimsleur language course.
I am not asking where the panties will drop fastest. I am asking where I can make friends easiest.
