Actually, I find it rather unfair that it's ok for Asian girls to say "I only date white guys", but if a white girl says she would only date white guys then she's seen as racist even though it is not, I think everybody just has a type. In Britain, majority of British born Asians (male and female) would prefer dating white guys/girls. I think it's more of the fact that there aren't as many Oriental Asians in the UK, therefore all the Asians just grow up being attracted to white British much more than Asians.

But I'm glad you found a lovely girlfriend! Love is never about race!

If a person's "type" is based off stereotypes/preconceived notions of other races/cultures then I think it could certainly be pretty racist. I've actually been in a few interracial relationships and I'll admit even I have my share of stereotypes based off experience.

Well, there's the stereotype about Asian girls having the tightest... erm... private parts...

From my limited investigations into the matter, I'd say it's true.

Anybody who claims they will only date a certain race almost assuredly has some deep-seated race issues. No if, ands, or buts. The more unyielding they are about it, the more severe their problem.

Now why would you care what those kinds of people go about living their lives? Unless you have some of those same problems yourself?

Don't worry. If there is one thing Tyler Perry taught me is they get me; I get them.

I have no negative views on any kind of couple. White, black, asian, hispanic, straight, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, transexual etc etc any couple should be acceptable as long as they are happy and it is none of our business to have opinions on the matter.

I haven't read this entire thread, it seems to go on forever. but i will say this. there are many people who use the internet, good and bad.

Take your keyboard warriors for example, make any non politically correct comment and they will be all over your post before you can exhale.

then there are the trolls.
Trolls used to stay under bridges, hiding and only bother the occasional innocent passerby, but not any longer.. they have found some wonderful underpasses on the grand ol information super highway. Their favorite past time is to find any little thing that might offend you, and post it proudly. They love stirring up the keyboard warriors and hurting anyone who doesn't have as thick of a skin as they do.

believe it or not, there are many more people on here who are simply everyday normal human beings. but the noise from the above mentioned tends to drown them out.

what you see in real life is much more REAL than in a forum or on FB. chances are, if a man or woman looks you and your boyfriend up and down then moves on, its only because they are noticing the beautiful couple and took a moment to really look and admire.

now having said that.. I do know that all of my Asian friends' families had issues with them dating someone outside their race. this was very true when i (who honestly am euro-american indian heinz 57 melting pot welcome to the americas lol but lets go with 'white' - blonde and gray eyed) dated a Filipino man awhile back. my own parents had no issue with us dating. His family wanted him to date someone who was Filipino and made it very clear.

I do believe the internet feeds into that and the trolls boost the negativity exponentially.

so while yes, i do know that biases and bigotry still run rampant, I don't think it's as bad as the net would have you think. many more people accept and embrace than try to deny and refute.

I've seen this to be true based on personal experience. I know a very ugly white girl and an even uglier asian guy (my co-worker) that had the cutest kids. But they are still young and who knows how they will turn out as adults. BTW I'm not saying you are ugly or anything...

As for the OP question, it's just silly to judge anything based on race. Date whoever makes you happy or treats you well.

I have mostly White/Hispanic friends, which is weird in front of my family's eyes. I would say it's weird in my Asian Friend's eyes too, but I don't really have any.......which is even weirder. Cuz I'm Asian. And I have little to no Asian friends. And this is Southern California. The last Asian friend I made move to San Francisco and I never heard from her again.
Is it because I'm racist to myself? I honestly don't think so. It's just that most of the people I met that just happen to be Asian had nothing in common with me, and I with them. The friends I do have.....now, we have a lot in common. The Asian friend I made? We have a lot in common.....if only I knew what the hell happened to her.......
So, for all I can say for you is......don't limit yourself to one race. And don't let anyone, even family, relatives, make you think otherwise that whoever you are dating is wrong. The only time dating someone is wrong is if they try to physically or verbally hurt you in any way. And that can happen while dating any race.

Hi Tinyd0t.
I'm a white (British) guy and have been happily married to an asian (Japanese) girl for 15 years, we have two beautiful children and live in London. To be honest we've never experienced any issues in real life but I have seen an increasing number of articles about this on the internet, presumably mostly coming from the US. I'm no expert but here's what I think. Firstly there seems to be a lot of asian girls moving to the west for various reasons. Girls in China I'm guessing may feel under-valued as many families still maintain a preference for male children... In Japan where the age of consent is 13 and the sexualization of female youth is rampant many women must feel culturally exposed and uncomfortable. Unfortunately asian girls new to the west have a terrible radar for good and bad when it comes to men and seem to find it difficult to send out negative signals, even when they are saying no they seem to be saying yes with body language, smiles and softness. This I think is the key point because us white guys are simple creatures as I'm sure you know and generally like whoever appears to like us. It's also true I think that white girls have more expressive faces than asian girls so can say with an expression what an asian girl cannot. "Yellow fever" if such a thing even exists may be nothing more than the consequence of a cultural misunderstanding and the sexual and emotional naivety of some people with internet access. Look at it this way. Our grandparents generation were dropping bombs on each other, we're falling in love with each other.. that has to be an improvement no matter what anyone says.

If I were a happy interracial couple, I don't think I'd give a fuck about your "views." Sure, race exists, but I highly doubt what is said to have CAUSED it to exist is sound reasoning why a couple ought not be together. Before you flip them the bird, ask yourself what harm them being together could honestly do? Are you mad because it's UNFAMILIAR, or DESTRUCTIVE? Because if it's unfamiliar, how could you possibly know whether or not it is destructive? That's a legitimate question.

Interracial couples tend to be looked down upon by others. I find interracial dating/couples more enjoyable than your standard same race couples. Dare-to-be-different couples are always amazing to me.
