Asian parents on interracial dating

For Asians, the gender pattern goes in the opposite direction: Asian women are much more likely than Asian men to marry someone of a different race.Among newlyweds in 2013, 37% of Asian women married someone who was not Asian, while 16% of Asian men married outside of their race.The statistics for White-Asian interracial marriages in the San Francisco Bay Area are even more extreme - something like a 4 to 1 ratio for White males versus Asian males.)As a result, the odds are against Asian males romantically.Not only are there fewer possible marriage prospects due to Asian women marrying outside the race, but trying to do likewise (date White females) is an uphill battle for Asian males. Once in a while, when meeting new people, I'll be surprised and taken aback by how friendly a lady is to me.

Women are slightly more likely to “marry out” than men in this group: 61% of American Indian female newlyweds married outside their race, compared with 54% of American Indian male newlyweds.Given the prior stats, you can see how this is unusual.When the majority of one's interactions with members of the opposite sex are devoid of romantic possibility, it's easy to internalize the perception that one is not sexually attractive. It can breed bitterness and frustration - accusations that Asian women are betraying the race, and racial epithets in their direction like 'banana' - yellow on the outside but white on the inside. I'm rooting for John Cho in the new ABC sitcom ' Selfie'.This will help balance the dating situation and move us towards that promised post-racial society.There are many myths and stereotypes when it comes to dating asian guys.It's frustrating and emasculating for Asian males.
