My thoughts, definitely yes, unless you have below average care in keeping yourself presentable and or socially adept.
I''m and Indian guy and my claim is that interracial dating definitely is easier for the average white man as compared to men of other races.
The past 10 days have been very eventful for me – no, scratch that- they have been momentous; I received some excellent news about my future, went on a wonderful business trip to the sunny state of California, and yesterday my (foreigner) best friend asked me to marry him. I am a Pakistani-American and he is a born and bred Caucasian American. Each of those things represents a lot of differences.
The funny thing about being in an interracial relationship is that in a world where everyone is always talking about race, that’s the last thing on my mind when I’m with C.

To get this out of the way: Karim is not a “Muslim name.” It is an Arabic name that Muslims name their children, since Karim is one of the 99 names of Allah, but the word and name predate Islam.
As for her reason to not date this Karim, obviously, since most Muslims don’t behead people or beat their wives, not wanting to associate with people like that is a bad reason to not want to date a Muslim.
There are some good reasons why this woman might want to walk away, though, that aren’t based on less-warranted stereotypes, reasons that have to do with the realities of the ways in which sexism, misogyny, sex-negativity, patriarchy, and purity culture manifest themselves Muslim-dominated cultures.
In short, mid-life crises come early and hit harder for non-practicing Muslim men.
