My girlfriend is Asian and I'm mid eastern/caucasian. She basically told me she is not attracted to East Asian/Oriental guys at all and is only attracted to European looking or kind of the half mid eastern european type. Obviously not the #1 thing in choosing someone, but yeah. Some people in areas like SE Asia, India, China, etc are actually weirdly obsessed with having lighter skin. I have a friend from India who even showed me a lotion type of product that will make you appear lighter. I know my girlfriend has friends who are in the same boat, but others who aren't. It all depends on what you've been exposed to in the end, but yes the infatuation and whatever does exist out there. No idea how big though.

Yeah skin lightening is nothing new in much of Asia, and yes there are women everywhere who are not attracted to their own 'people', sometimes because they think other races offer something better. What does that say about how they view themselves?

this video proves that not all asian women are after caucasian men
there has been a generational mindset in the youth of many asian countries.....lets say 90s generation found caucaisian men to be attractive....now a new generation no longer has that mindset

I also notice when an asian woman marries another race or ethnicity she always adopts the man's culture / religion, foods, traditions, etc

my sister married a different race / culture and she totally gave up her asian culture and speaks the man's foreign language fluently, she pretty much adapted to the man's religion, culture , language, everything

According to the translation of comments* posted by Chinese netizens, yes the Chinese girls actively seek out foreign guys:

*Assuming the translations are actually accurate.

I think the answer to this question is there are segments here depending on the person

a) you have a segment who views marrying a "westerner" as a ticket out of poverty, obviously most common in the poorer group of Asian countries or among impoverished people of wealthier Asian countries

b) a segment who uses marrying a westerner as a way of removing themselves from many of the cultural constraints of Asian society. I think this is particularly common in Japan and Taiwan, which tend to be less progressive toward women than some of the other countries (Japan the most, Taiwan less so)

c) a group fascinated with western culture; maybe they grew up liking US/EU celebrities, or watching English language TV, but have some kind of connection with a country not their own. I think this is to a certain degree a common reason why people will marry people from another country; for some reason they will feel a connection to the place where their partner may come from

d) a segment with a very strong sexual attraction/curiosity to people outside of their race/culture

Obviously there could be more than one of these factors. Sometimes you can't ignore a simple "serendipity" argument; sometimes couples end up together just because the cards end up falling a certain way and there aren't necessarily strong preconceived reasons behind it. But often some of these reasons manifest themselves or develop even if the meeting is relatively serendipitous.
