But how do you do it when the failsafe option – your local mothers’ group – doesn’t pan out?
Chinese girls throw themselves at Western men and even the ones that don't are very open to dating a Western man.But when you look around, how often do you see Asian men with white or foreign women?Like many other Asian women, Wong is sick of pickup lines which zero-in on race."The most disgusting set of phrases you could ever utter to me are ‘I love Asians,’ ‘I’m only attracted to Asians,’ ‘I had an Asian girlfriend once,’ or any other variant really," Wong writes.Watch all the documentaries online after they air on SBS On Demand.
You see it all the time; foreign men of every color with Chinese girls."If you’ve gotten to a point where all your suitors are coming at you because they’ve decided to stuff you into their ‘little Asian wife’ box, then it starts to hurt.A lot." "I’m Chinese, and if you think that dating, say, a Korean or Filipino person somehow ‘qualifies’ you to be my significant other, then you really have to pay more attention to anything you might’ve learned while being with that person at all," Wong writes.Being ‘into Asian chicks’ is a preference many guys don’t seem to have a problem expressing, with some even wearing it as a badge of pride.It’s a trend that has become so widespread it’s got its own slang term: ‘Yellow fever’.On the subject of dating, she told me "after 4 years without a relationship, I still don’t want a Chinese guy".
