Dating a japanese american guy
A study conducted by China Daily interviewed a cross-section of people to see if they said “I love you” to their parents. When it comes to marriage prospects, Asian guys take into consideration the advice of his parents.
Many people interviewed had never said those three words, and one 56-year old commenting “Saying it aloud is embarrassing for me.” Of course, even in an upbringing where being emotionally expressive is not encouraged, one can still learn how to communicate feelings despite the odds. Sure, an Asian guy will think bubble tea is a perfectly acceptable venue for a first date. Asian guys will almost always say “Yes” to dessert as a date spot. It’s more common for a Caucasian male to independently pursue his desires without asking for anyone else’s approval. Although Asian guys might take awhile to confess their undying love, but that’s only because they like to take it slow.
Multiple articles and studies discuss how cultural stereotypes of Asian men may make them less attractive to women of all races, including Asians. On another website, one Asian male expresses: “It’s definitely harder for an Asian male to date a white female than for Asian females to date white males.
In the book Freakonomics, one study showed that single Asians (male) had to make 7,000 more annually to receive the same response rate as White men on online dating sites. Asian males are not portrayed as masculine, whereas Asian females are stereotyped as submissive, exotic.” What gives?!
No wonder why American men gravitate towards Asian women!
So, why do Japanese women prefer to date American men?
Theories explain that this dates back to the nature of Confucian teaching – where displaying one’s emotions publicly is not encouraged.
Whereas in the 19th century, Asian men were portrayed at the other extreme in the 19th century: sexually dangerous and desirable.
Let’s take a quick look at some of the reasons American men seem to be the preferred choice for Japanese women.
If you have spent any time in Japan, whether it be working there or for an extended vacation you cannot help but notice all of the sleepy salary men who ride the trains each and every day.
After all, over the past 10 years American women tend to be heavier than they should be!
Conversely the women of Japan have very small frames and an exotic look about them.
