Would you date me because I look and sound exotic, and where I come from, you think we still live in zinc houses and speak a foreign language (that can be made fun of). Or, for my personality?
Maybe the mainstream media has us believe that the ideal beauty is a man with perfect aquiline nose, sparkly blue eyes, spotlessly shaved/trimmed face and a megawatt smile. Maybe that is why us ethnic minorities seem to fare much less than Caucasians?
JayQueer, I don't think that South Indians fare any worst than East or South East Asians to be honest. I've had less luck getting hit on than my British Indian friend when we go out.
