    guess where I'm from/my ethnicity and where I can pass!

    hair: dark brown with copper undertones (they show up if I'm in the sun a lot), straight (I can't hold a curl)
    skin: light olive or yellowish/tan easily/don't burn/probably Fitzpatrick type III?
    eyes: dark brown

    Kurdish or North Iranian would be my first guess.

    Ah...well lets then move north through the Derbent ,as my next guess would be Caucasus and the planes north of it. You don't disclose whether you're mixed ethnically so I'll abstain from guesses for now (I ain't good at this game but always like participating). Let's wait for other opinions.

    In the pictures, you look "Armenian". A bit like Cher.

    i think Greeks tend to have more robust and fleshier features especially nose and mouth compared to other Mediterranean ppl. At least the ones I’ve met.

    ^^I agree. I would have said Spanish or Portuguese. Italian is ok as well, I guess, but not as good a fit. No, not Greece.

    The "dark" Welsh, especially the men, often have an Italianate look to me.










    Or they just look like Brits with dark hair.

    What do you think? Does young Cher bear a resemblance to you? I think she does.

    maybe a little? (I am flattered nontheless lol)

    But she is partially Native American and you can tell from her face structure.
