This is largely due to the fact that we first started our service with a group of 200 young, urban professionals (our own friends!
I first heard about “yellow fever” during elementary school after a few guys mentioned it.
To me, it was just another form of teasing that I threw into my sizable trashcan of forgotten terms, lying dormant all these years—until now.
After spending half of my twenties living and working in Hong Kong and South Korea, I returned to North America last summer, at 30, with a reputation as a White Guy Who Dates Asian Girls.
Some of the behavior I have encountered has been so distasteful that I’ve been shocked as it was happening. But if you want to seem on top of things on a date with an Asian girl, please avoid doing these things.
I assumed we would all know better by now than to draw outrageous stereotypes or make racist statements, but I’ve been proven wrong many times.
What’s more, Asian women are typically interested in purely aesthetic aspects of White men, such as pale skin and large, light-colored eyes.
While I’d like to believe that every member of our community is a shining Adonis, at least some us must still be working on it.
In contrast, Asian girls are portrayed as traditional, virtuous, and loyal.
I’d like to show why regardless of the validity of these claims, dating Asians is bad for you and very bad for your children. It’s true, technically, that the average Asian women would rather date a White guy than an Asian guy.
I’ve been bowed to on a date and people have commented on the flatness of my face.
“Men only like younger women” “White men like Asian women” “When people say they are 5’6″, they really mean they are 5’4″” … 13 months ago, we started CMB with a simple idea: what if we created a dating site that used your own social network to help you find love? ), and we’ve helped connect thousands of singles across the nation!
This is the same way my friends use it while teasing me now—they’re not accusing me of fetishizing my current or past girlfriends.
