America dating men
Once again, age-old stereotypes of Asian women as being submissive, docile, and sexually exotic play a role.
But it's also true that Asian women have long been cast alongside white men in movies, television, and even the nightly news.
Unless, women can actually sit down and have real interactions with Asian men, America will continue to perpetuate these same, sad caricatures of the Asian man. The reason I don't and haven't dated Asian men is because Asian men will almost always succumb to their Asian cultural pressures.
Statistically, Asian men rank lowest compared to other men when it comes to receiving matches and messages from women on dating sites.
So, unless it’s the second meeting and your date presents you with the wedding “mood board” she’s been working on since she was seven, try not to recoil at her forthrightness.
At least this way you’ll quickly identify whether you want the same things.
Just ask yourself, when was the last time you saw an Asian-American male anchor with a white female co-anchor?
Blogger, fashion photographer, and social critic Eliza Romero goes even further by calling out Asian women on this popular subtopic of the White Male/Asian Female (WM/AF) dynamic in her recent blog, To further complicate the problem, as online dating becomes more the norm than the exception, the image of the Asian man as emasculated, lacking confidence, nerdy, and asexual will be heightened.
