I used to actually struggle with this very thing despite doing relatively well with women in my youth. Played sports, developed early, lost virginity at 15 to a pale brunette who was two years my older, and had my fun. Not really sure if the way I went about it is the way to really go about it but it ended up working out well for me. Thought it makes sense for me to also share a bit about myself with y’all for all of this to really make any sense.
The story starts where I grew up, in a large suburb of a major southern city. Upper middle class type of crowd, keeping up with the joneses attitude, spoiled kids, big on high school sports, and very much an Orange County vibe if you are going by culture. Mostly white but a decent number of Asians, Indians, Persians, and some Latinos who were all well to do.
Ever since I could remember, my type has always been olive skinned brunettes or dark haired girls with lightly tanned skin, usually white. My first ever fap was to Shannon Elizabeth on American Pie who was also my first ever celebrity crush, pic below with complimentary gif…
They say familiarity breeds contempt and that describes my experience with my type in my youth. As a guy with black hair and tanned skin who gets told he looks like the current 49ers Quarterback Jimmy G a bit too often, I did great with blondes, pale girls, black girls, asian girls, and almost all types of women but my type. To make matters even more discouraging, I noticed all the good looking women of my type went with the blond haired Thad Castle All American types while guys like me ended up with blondes.
Time and time again, I got burned by my type and I had enough. After getting led on and teased hard by this Greek girl, I said enough was enough. I was not going to spend a second of my time going for my type if I get burned time and time again. I even spent time watching porn that had any kind of girl but my type in it. At the time I told myself that even if I do not ever fuck my type, I will still have lived a fulfilled life.
College came and I went for anything but my type, I still cannot decide if I was bitter or detached at the time. Laid an Asian, then a ginger, then a mixed girl, then a blonde, and then two pale brunettes. Life was just fine, I was getting laid and living the college experience, I was fulfilled.
Then it got to a point where my type became too hard to ignore, thanks to being in college I had to interact with them in classes, activities, events, and going out at night. Social circles are the lay of the land in college and some of the girls I fucked had my types in their social circles. I said to myself that I will just be detached by giving them one word answers and ending the interaction fast.
In my sophomore year, I met a girl a year ahead of me named Alexis in a philanthrophy I worked at. Alexis was an outspoken Arizona girl with a feisty temper who had the look for my type. She had black hair, high cheekbones, a tan, and looked fairly identical to Lezley Zenn (NSFW, pornstar). I act detached towards her at first but her domineering attitude was not having any of it, she called me out on it in front of others to where I had to warm up. We put our differences aside quick and after a couple months, ended up fucking and I even hit it raw, was the best sex I had to that date. Alexis and I would fuck throughout college and even a year after she graduated since she stuck around town.
After Alexis, I ran into a close friend of a blonde I used to fuck on the regular, it was this tall tanned Italian chick who had seen me in underwear with her friend. I took her home that same night I saw her a bar, what started as small talk turned into her feeling my biceps and then all I had to do was escalate.
A month after that, I met a raven haired tanned Romanian girl in class who was a part of some program, slipping my head at the time. We would talk in class but I never number closed and I was still keeping my mindset. I'd end the convos fast but noticed she was giving me attention with every class I had. One night I approach this redhead and find that it is her friend, end the night hitting it off more with the Romanian girl, we are making out but I cannot close. I meet up a week later for a date and it still doesn't happen. Get a text a few days later, I go over and smash.
I slowly started to take my type down from the pedestal but was meeting them through either friends of theirs or social activities. The first five girls I smashed of my type I never cold approached. My 6th was a milf in town who I did approach, she had an athletic body and was there for a sporting event. I take her to her hotel the same night and close, second place behind Alexis for the best sex I had and was my first ever milf.
Until the milf I had never approached my type but after her, I started doing it somewhat regularly.
In my freshman year, I had fucked no women of my type. In my sophomore year, it was 50/50. In my junior and senior years, I was only fucking my type. I usually met women through friends and through girls that were into me, social proof turns this shit into layups. At times when I needed my ego bruised because I was so high on life, I'd specifically approach my type hoping it be a rejection to humble me, it worked in my favor a good deal of times.
If I had to advice on it, I'd say.
- Prejudice and all that stuff is real, women care, and there is not much you can do about it
- Find fulfillment in your life first and promise yourself you'll be happy without your type
- Do well with the women you can do well with because women talk
- Find good reference points with your type that you can look back on positively
- If you do not have good reference points, get em, even if it means seeing an escort who has that look
- Approach women you actually feel comfortable approaching first
- Think less, do more, and be happy with whatever happens
Even if I was to have only ended up fucking blondes or pale girls, I'd have still been okay with it.
