Challenge him to a game of Pai Gow or Big 2 and he’ll drink you under the table. Also, living with a romantic partner pre-marriage is generally looked down upon, which is another reason why many asians wait until marriage to move out. With a big emphasis on “taking care” of those around you.For example, at the dinner table, it is a blasphemy to serve yourself food first and immediately start eating. Unfortunately, we are influenced by what we see in the media whether we are conscious of it or not.The online dating website "Are You Interested" recently surveyed more than 2.4 million interactions on its site and confirmed what many of us suspect: America loves Asian women.In fact, Asian female users are more likely to get messages, including inappropriate ones, from male users of any race other than Asian."While growing up in a homogeneous white town, it was a standard perception that Asian men just weren't attractive," Sarah Shaw acknowledged in a post for earlier this year.Whether this line of thought will change depends on the media's openness to promote more traditionally or differentially masculine Asian figures, and the willingness of Asian men to tackle existing media stereotypes of us head-on.This trend, popularly dubbed "yellow fever," is not a new phenomenon, springing instead from an attraction to what some observers say is the exotic appeal of Asian women, and a self-indulging fantasy of being with women who are seen as docile and submissive.
