Have not read the thread. Intoxicated. Work with Indian engineers. Studied with Indian nerds in Col. -Indians are friendly social people, but men like you can be very concerned about "stuff" and not with emotions and bullshit that girls enjoy. Just think about this when talking to girls. They don't weigh cause/effect, priorities, structure ect like we do. Lots of Indian guys are very friendly and personable people, but this one thing is holding them back from girls. -I'm sorry, but elephant in the room, limit your curry intake to 1 meal 3 times a week at MOST, and use a sauna/steam room regularly, and drink lots of water. With cologne , anything more than 2 sprays is excessive, arguably more than 1. I'm not trying to be mean with any of this, but I have worked in a gym during col and know how things get when just a minuscule amount of body odor is emitted by some Americanized Indians. I've known Indian guys who were very Americanized but unknowingly walled in by this shit. -Hang out with non-indian guys, and be proactive in making it happen. Some of the most Americanized Indian guys will buddy up with other Indian guys, hang out with them 24/7, and get depressed about not getting any girls before marriage. I mean...really. -Be stupid, necklace, dangerous, and do things that will bring you great shame when you look back. You are still young at 26. You still have a few years left. Just fucking do it. -Confidence. Indians have a lot on their side because they are of a race that can be attractive to women of many races. Even a bit of accent can be more on the exotic side than nerdy. Their ethnic facial features still retain a universal masculine appeal. Lots of Indian guys are awkward around girls, but your looks are almost never a problem. Knowing this should at lest get your foot in the door with talking to girls. -Hire a prostitute. There is no downside to this. Use protection. No one will ever know about it. It will suprise you how much it has helped you and how much it never happened.
