real lovers dating - East america women dating

The women I have dated understood that I desired equality within a relationship, that we would be partners. Nobody has ever said to me, “I’m not into Asian guys.” That said, actions speak louder than words, and I don’t match as often as I’d like on dating apps in Pittsburgh. I’m a pharmacist and I was engaged to someone who didn’t graduate college, and it created such a problem in my family.

I haven’t had to deal with Asian fetishization; I mean, how often have you heard women say, “Oh shit, I only date Asian guys! There’s this expectation that the man should have an equal or higher degree than the woman, and for me and my fiance, it obviously wasn’t the case.

It’s more of a reflection of them as opposed to me, and I owe it to myself to never internalize someone else’s poisonous opinion.

My mother is very adamant and not discreet in her disappointment that I have not yet found a nice Vietnamese man to date.

I got on it when I was bored and paid for an upgraded subscription that allowed me to move my location to Pyeongchang to see the pool of users there ― no shame. Bumble and OKC have been the best so far in terms of matches and responses.

However, I get the sense that not many women that make their way to Pittsburgh are looking for a guy who looks or thinks like me.

My first girlfriend was white, and when my mom found out I was dating a white woman, she kicked me out of the house for being gay, but not before saying, “Well, at least that b***h is white!

” I feel like Asians fall into that gray area of not being accepted as a person of color while being seen as a weird fetish.

For starters, online dating app users don’t necessarily favor Asians: One Ok Cupid study from 2014 found that Asian men have a harder time with online dating than people of any other race.

In a speed-dating study conducted at Columbia University in 2006, Asian men also had the most difficulty getting a second date.

As an Asian man, standing right next to him, dudes would just completely disregard me.

I thought that my chances of finding another guy were much lower, so I convinced myself that I needed this relationship more than my partner.

I’ve gone on dates with women who seemed great on dating apps, only to have them tell me, “I love ethnic girls.” Dating interracially, there have been times when the woman I am dating shows no interest whatsoever in my cultural background, just that I’m a “hot Asian.” It’s very rare for someone I’m dating to show any interest in the cultural customs I grew up with or my race.
