That’s like choosing a new boyfriend based off your ex.
“I like Mark because he’s not like Dan, he doesn’t leave the toilet seat up like Dan does, he opens my car door but Dan wouldn’t…” All it really sounds like is that this hypothetical Asian woman is REALLY obsessed with DAN (Asian men) but doesn’t actually like Mark (White men) for who he is.
We just wait around until a guy asks us out, and then we decide if we’re going to let it happen.
Now I know that it doesn’t always happen that way, but that’s the way society has long since defined dating, and plenty of women still get asked out to this day.
So the real question is not whether white men have a preference for Asian women, but why? Some argue that it’s because Asian women are more docile, submissive, and tame than their raucous and outgoing Caucasian counterparts.
Others claim that it’s a harmless preference on the basis of physical appearance, no different than a preference for blondes or girls with tattoos.
Since when do we have to compare men to one another when choosing a partner?As someone who has worked with JT Tran of “ABCs of Attraction” for years, I speak from experience when I say I’ve come to know what it’s like for men in the dating scene.I’ll be the first to admit that, if dating happened in a textbook scenario, it’s actually fairly straightforward for women.As such, the man still feels responsible for doing the bulk of the asking.Now imagine being expected to do this in order to find a romantic partner, then try walking up to that really, really cute guy.They’re not sad that a young woman has deigned them unworthy of her affection. To most, it’s just another paper cut amongst the scars — it might have stung the first time they received one, but after a while they barely feel them anymore.
