For me, Asians (Indonesia, Philippines, and China) and Mexico seem to come easy. I don't know why, but I find them to be easier to talk to than the average American girl online. I can tease them, and they don't care, and tend to play along more easier. I am not trying to b***h about a nationality, but just something I have found. Have you found this?

I lack the flirting genes, but in general conversation I default to the commonwealth nations because of the common language.

I too find Hispanics particularly easy to get along with, though I don't know any Asians.

I recall reading in college that after WWII, the Japanese became fanatical about baseball. A particular treat for the Japanese was when a professional US team would visit to play for the locals. Well, players didn't like playing in Japan at all. The reason was that the Japanese were much more quiet and subdued in their applause and encouragement. The American ball players perceived this as a seemingly tepid response as disapproval, and thought it indicated they weren't welcome. It's a complex thing.

I'm Asian and I will close the chat window if anyone tries to flirt.
I'm fine with almost anything else though.

My wife is from the Philippines. Half of my co-workers are from Viet Nam. My physician is from Korea (South) and his nurse is from Thailand.

I get along better with them than with any person of African or European ancestry.

I find Ukrainians to be a warm and friendly people. I used to tutor ESL students, mostly Ukrainians.

I have found a high level of acceptance among groups deemed minorities (e.g., jewish, african-american) in the US.

Black and Asian girls for sure.

Black girls are often more amenable to my style of over-the-top, antisocial humor as part of flirting. Asian girls bring out the quiet, shy, kind side of me, which mirrors them.

I seem to get along great with those of East Asian descent as well as African descent. I still can't figure out why maybe because their cultures don't believe the BS that little eye contact means you are lying.

I was bullied severely in school but even though the scariest dudes were two black males they generally didn't have an issue with me and surprisingly never did a thing to me even though just about everyone was scared of them.

I find Ukrainians and people of African descent easier to talk to.
People of similar European decent are the most difficult.
I have considered that those who have been oppressed in some way socially are easier to communicate with.

I have an easy time talking to girls (and just anyone) from Europe, and Russia. I think it's because I always want to know more about the culture an society of the countries they come from, and a female friend of mine from Russia finds my weirdness and interest in her country entertaining.

Because a lot of them are interested in your green card.

Most peple living where I live are Irish, andd I wouldnt really be interested in dating soemone who wasnt Irish. I dont get much oportunity to interact wth a whoel lot of other types of nationalities or races then; Ive traveled before, and maed some acquaintnces in other cuontries, and from my experince with othre people, I get along best wth Texans and southwestern Germans. I visited Texas years ago, so maybbe it has changed, but thy were soem of the friendliest and moost hospitalble people I ever met. The Germans I kno werent as open, more staid, but they aer still very hospitablle people and easy to talk to (if you know the languge). I also lieked Romanians, thuogh seems they may onl be very open if yuo have somone they alredy trust to introduce you, and yuo had to watch out for pickpockets. In general, northeastern and far westrn caucasian americans were probaly the most unfrindly people I have met.

As a westernised Asian, I get along quite well with all nationalities, although I do admit sometimes I struggle to communicate well to people from more extraverted nationalities (e.g. Australia, England, Greece, Lebanon), mainly because I struggle to articulate my thoughts and feelings correctly.

What if you are online an you didn't know the nationality of the other person. would that make a difference? I've only sent my pic to 3 people here. 2 of which remarked that they weren't expecting me to be what I am. :shrug: :shrug:

I get along with other cultures better because they automatically excuse me for being an Afrikaner. They assume I should be different so I tend to get away with a lot :D Social mistakes, that is. But if I was to try that in my own culture I get ignored.
