Hello all,

I a few of my friends have Asian girlfriends, but are not Asian themselves. I've wanted to ask them why they took up such an arrangement, but I didn't want to prompt offense if taken the wrong way. At my campus I've noticed that quite a few people are in such relationships (much more than any other interracial match-ups).

So I'm asking you guys and gals why are interracial (Asian/non-Asian) relationships so appealing?

I think many people in interracial relationships don't think about it that way. To them it's about what they like in a woman. Some people might like the looks of a man/woman of a certain race and therefore go out with them more.

I think it is because Asian girls are very pretty. Although I almost always seem to see Asian preferring Asian. Many guys can fall under the spell of a pretty Asian girl. When I was visiting a brother in Korea, I mentioned that there were many pretty Korean girls there. My brother warned me against getting "Yellow Fever." I asked what it was. He said that many military men fall for a pretty, young Korean girl and get married to them. He then asked, "But when a woman gets older, she changes. Now look around and tell me how many pretty, older Asian women do you see?" It may sound offensive, but in a way, its sort of true, and not very often do you see an attractive, older Asian woman(he was referring to the 40-50 plus age range, but then again, there aren't too many women that ever look good at that age lol)

For me, personally, match-ups of any race are fine, except black and white interracial relationships. Not that I am prejudiced or anything like that, but its just something that I don't agree with. Perhaps there was something with the way I was brought up. I have a few black friends, and they agree the same way. My friend Ben said that he does not find white women attractive anyway. I have been accused of being prejudiced before because I will simply say that I don't agree with that kind of match-up. If I were prejudiced, I would have a problem with all interracial relationships, black/white, white/asian, black/latino, white/latino, black/asian, white/asian, latino/asian, etc, etc. I have no doubt that if a black man and white girl/black girl and white guy were together that they could not live a content life and family, but its just something that I personally just don't agree with. I will say that biracial children do have it harder growing up than others.

Thats just my own personal outlook on it.

Well I am half asian - and I am married to a blonde Caucasian woman from the Mediterranean.

Why did we originally get together?
We love each other - it is as simple as that.

Where there is a high population of Asian people and Caucasian people then most likely quite a few of them will take up with one of the other.

Actually, it's always seemed to me that Asian women (and black women too) don't age as visibly as white women do. They tend to hold their looks longer.

My first ex´s aunt living in Berlin (she came from the Philippines), is in her late 50s, but still has the shape of a 18 year old. I wouldn´t consider her to be ugly.

Exactly. Though not technically 'Asian' in the way Flybyguy intented it, I'm a result of two successive marriages between 'Asian' and non-Asian people.

And I haven't ever to thought to ask any of them why, but I suspect they saw and fell for the person, not the anatomy.

Of course, there's bound to be a considerable number of relationships resulting from being drawn to someone 'exotic' or looking for someone different. But it's not always the case.

I think it is also a thing of mentality and culture. I can´t imagine being married or living together with somebody from my own cultural group. I imagine it to be extremely boring. On the other hand I found out during my second marriage to a woman from West Africa from a poor background that cultural differences and expectations can be too big as well (if she came e.g. from a similar educational group as a black American or European I think it might have worked out).
I´m very happy with my Filipino-Chinese girlfriend, who has a very professional attitude towards her job and an experimental outlook towards life, means she tries new things and is not too much fixed on traditions, while keeping her own culture. Don´t forget that in many aspects us Europeans are just as exotic and strange to them as they are sometimes to us. I also noticed that, at least in the beginning of our relationship, she came under pressure from friends and family to please look for some nice Filipino guy and to drop this German, but by now the fact that we are together since several years has been accepted by her family. Probably for her and me the differences between Filipino and German culture are just enough to make life interesting, while not being so strong as to cause trouble.

Actually I have to disagree with you there. I have seen many asian (regarding the Asian continent) women age quite gracefully. On the other hand I've seen many caucasian women look horribly wrinkled in their 50s. I think a lot of it has to do with skin pigmentation. Since caucasians have less melanin, their skin takes more of a beating from the sun and other rays over the person's lifetime.

Maybe that is it, MD11Eng. Similar cultural value systems and similar lifestyles with interesting twists. The girls my friends are dating are mostly daughters of entrepreneurial/professional parents. My friend's parents are teachers, professors, lawyers and dentists. Not to mention that they all go to the same school. So I guess similar life experiences can overcome racial differences in interracial relationships.

Presumably, very large differences in background can become burdensome in any relationship.

Good old Yellow Fever! Once you get it, there is no cure.

A few reasons off the top of my head:
- Different cultures
- Different values
- Exotic looking
- Asian women age much slower than western women.
- Asian women hardly get fat

My wife is Japanese and we are about to celebrate our 3rd anniversary and we are more in love than ever. The cultural differences cause stress sometimes but also those differences enhance our relatioship because we get to see things from a different perspective.

There is a lot of Caucasian men who love that Asian love! You can see it everywhere but one thing is for sure, You don't see many Asian men with Caucasian women. In fact, I would go to say that East Asian women are more attractive than East Asian men. East Asian women have a nice compact body for the most part, and that is very attractive to men. But because East Asian men are generally smaller in size, they tend to not be as attractive since most like the "Tall dark and handsome" look.

I find Asian women extremely attractive. I have just never seen an attractive 50 yr old Asian woman. Now, thats just my opinion, and I made that assumption while walking the streets of Korea. Who knows, maybe it was the smell of kimchee that was doing it. Boy, that stuff could gag a buzzard. Once again, my opinion.

Since Asian women are on average smaller in height and girth than most Western/Euro women, that may appeal to many men. There is the 'difference' factor too, as to race/culture, a look that was exotic to a Westerner. Many men like thin, smaller women, although I hope that the appeal isn't wanting someone who looks like a child. Also, to some extent in the past, Asian women were quite 'subservent' to men and some wanted to marry non-Asian men to get out of their countries.

It's probably because in most asian cultures the women are submissive...and we like being dominant, and western chicks are way more 'dominant' due to woman's liberation etc. Personally I have only done a couple of Filipino Chicks, they were fun, but I don't think I could get in a long term relationship with one.

And how many caucasian women have you slept with that were bad? On the inside its all the same. Just like saying after you have sex with a woman who's no good in the sack that your going to be gay.

One reason white men probably go for Asian women is they see and hear things about them being very flexable. Think about it.
