My relationships/dates with Javanese girls have been more successful than those with Sundanese girls.I've never really noticed that they were more submissive, but they were less money-oriented and less childish.As I'm growing older I start to care less, so here I am giving you advice on whether it is best to date/marry a Javanese or a Sundanese girl.
It is also common to come across Bataknese (Medan), Betawi (pure Jakarta), Indonesian-Chinese, Manadonese (Manado) and Makassarese (Makassar).
It is said that due to their welcoming nature, the penetration of Islam among them was faster and easier compared to the Javanese.
For this reason, they are overall more religious compared to the Javanese.
On the contrary, Indonesians like to point at the differences between the people of each provinces.
They will give specific traits to some ethnicities, negative or positive, and based on these stereotypes they might deem that some mixed "race" couples are not desirable.
