College is about learning and experiencing new things. I've had plenty of women who aren't my ethnicity (which is hispanic) show some attraction towards me, which probably would have allowed me to date them had i put in the effort.
Granted though, i go to what might be the most socioeconimic and ethincally diverse university in the world. So take what i say with a grain of salt. My point is that there's plenty of people at college who want to date people they've never dated before, and have the freedom to do things there parents might forbid.
As long as you're fairly charming, you should have no trouble with dates.
