I'm saying that there are women with a certain look you don't get in Asia (and I know there are exceptions):

Natural Blondes
Green/blue eyes
Big boobs, big butt
tall
long legs
black skin
white skin
etc...

There are a LOT of men who are not interested in east-Asians at all. I know a few. I also know some guys who love them. I don't know why you think that there can't be men who are not attracted to east-Asian women...it happens, everybody has their preferences. E.g. I don't think there's many women in Asia who represent Tiger Wood's (white women) or Robert DeNiro's tastes (black women).

In the US I've only ever lived in LA, and a lot of guys like them here, but I think that is because they represent a large proportion of the population. Guys will always find something to their tastes in a big city.

Another thing, a lot of the east-Asian women that many white guys like e.g Lucy Liu are not considered attractive by east-Asian people. My Chinese female friends think she is very average.

Another example, the Arizona white supremacist border guard JT Ready that recently commited a murder-suicide against his Hispanic girlfriend and her Hispanic children.

I happens all the time.
Yeah, I know that it's happened since time immemorial... it just makes not a lick of sense to me. But then, I don't harbor any racial prejudices, which I guess precludes it making any sense.

The people who find Lucy Liu (and her weird wonky, lazy eye) attractive tend to be the ones that have an Asian fetish.

Men can be strange...they may dislike certain ethnicity or religions, but a woman can change their mind! I've come across Hindu Indian guys who hate Muslim Pakistanis, but love their women! It's a bit of a "forbidden fruit" situation for them...

In short, many white girls are attracted to Asian-American men, but not many are attracted to fresh-off-the-boat from Asia men.
Same pertains to Indian guys...white (and east-Asian) American women don't go for FOB Indian guys, but they're fine with me. I was born and raised in UK. I've even had a few say to me,"If you were from India I wouldn't be interested in you, but you're not really 'Indian' so it's cool"

Lucy Liu has many of the most stereotypically "Asian" facial features that have been kicked around in Western imagery: she's slender, has high cheekbones, small almond-shaped eyes that are canted inwards, and her makeup is usually done to accentuate all of these features and make the bridge of her nose barely visible; that made her the go-to Asian woman for big-budget American films for the better part of a decade.

Although I don't necessarily think that she's unattractive, I have certainly seen (and dated) Asian women whom I find to be more attractive.

I've heard women say the same thing about guys from Russia; they'll meet some guy who's 6'4, muscular, blue eyes, blonde hair, and then find out his name is Vasily or Pavel and he has an accent, and they're not interested anymore. I think it's rooted in national stereotypes and also a sense of familiarity; a lot of guys who have a thing for Asian women would probably, at the end of the day, prefer to date a woman who's Asian-American or -European for shared cultural sensibilities, than a FOB woman who is mostly culturally foreign.

not saying guys don't like other girls, just saying the idea that most guys consider asian girls inferior is complete nonsense. especially in LA. and i am well aware of the differences in preference between asian men and western men.

There is a difference in Asian American women vs. Asian women though with western influence growing in Asia, we can see that things are changing already in this day and age. So i'm confused with the posts on here. Do you want Asian women or Asian American women?

I wasn't referring to LA..I live there and I know how it is there. I meant globally..e.g. a lot of European men are not into east-Asian women.

One criticism I've heard from guys about east-Asian women is that most of the have no boobs or butt.
