My in-laws were relieved I wasn't black or hispanic, to tell the truth. I know for a fact my father-in-law would have forbid his daughter from dating a black or hispanic man. Further, he was happy I had dirty blonde hair and blue eyes.

Though it seems to be generational / fad-ish for how the men are perceived.

The guys over in Asia LOVE white women because, let's face it, they're curvy relatively speaking to their Asian sisters.

And multiple studies have shown (LOL!) that blonde haired women get more men to hit on them. Even races which didn't have naturally occurring blonde hair (e.g. black women) who had dyed their hair blonde got more men to hit on them.

I doubt so. Most of my guy friends would rather date back Asians (and even that, their own race) instead of an Asian of another race, or worse, a non-Asian. They would pass an American porn for Japanese porn any day.

East Asians generally prefer marrying with their own race to other races (some sort of "blood/race-purity tradition). Those who prefer whites or other races are generally exposed to Western culture or have been living in the West for a while now, or living in a cosmopolitan city like HK and Singapore where Western influence is significant. Native Southeast Asians are generally more relaxed on this view compared to East Asians.

Interesting, so you're saying most Malaysian guys would pass on a white girl?

Having lived in Australia my whole life it's what I was exposed to and what I'm used to, so it just seems natural. Having travelled in Asia, though, I think I've begun to appreciate Asian girls more, not that I ever thought they were inferior. I guess as one matures these things tend to become less important.

The fetish for Europeans seems biggest in Japan, I think.

I wouldn't say most, but many still prefer their own race. I cited pornography as an example since that criteria alone is enough to prove the racial preference (in sex) for a certain individual.

I guess Malays and Indian Malaysians are more accepting of other races (the "fairer is better" thinking still triumphs in Asian communities), and thus girls from any race that is fairer or whiter than their own are generally regarded as a desired partner (though they do have to fulfil their cultural/religious requirements, often demanding the girl to convert should the need arises).

Are Asian guys popular with White/Hispanic/Black girls in Australia in terms of relationship? Or do white girls generally prefer white guys (since it is still a lot rarer compared to White guys with Asian girls)? The lingering stereotype is that Asian guys are generally shorter, timid, nerdy, and less sexually appealing compared to White and Black men.

I know Japan has had this fascination with European culture since the Meiji Period (?), but I am not sure whether the fascination extends to seeing Europeans as a desired partner.

I've never really got into Japanese or other Asian pornography. Not that I watch a lot of porn. Most of the mainstream stuff is American and I guess I still prefer it because I'm used to it, and because in a lot of Japanese porn the woman seems like she is crying and in pain and I don't find that a turn-on. It might turn on Japanese guys though.

Interesting I would assume Malays would be the LEAST likely to date outside their race, and Indians and Chinese more likely. Also Malaysian Chinese often seem more westernised, well the ones that are, speaking English more, being more into western culture.

Yes some women - can't say the percentage - probably do rule out Asian guys. I've often wondered if that's been a factor in my lack of success with dating here. It seems when i go to Asia - anywhere in Asia, I get more attention so who knows. At this stage I'd be open to dating a gal from anywhere in the world.

Maybe they just want to experience the white lily before they settle down with a good Asian wife (although Japanese women are becoming more western), but I do know many girls from Western countries and Russia are popular as hostesses, dancers, strippers and escorts in Tokyo.

Haha I guess that's the general perception. Actually from my observation, Malays DO love fairer races, esp Chinese and Whites. But they don't actively pursue interracial relationship (most would only fantasize about them), hence people will think that they are not open to other races, and there's this rumour that Malays' penchant for non-Muslim races is to convert the non-Muslim partner to Islam so that they'll be rewarded heavily in the afterlife. And many Malay girls, esp the liberal urbanites as well as celebrities, love to dig White guys. Despite the anti-Western sentiments in Malay nationalism, they do worship whites as the standard of beauty and status. But if a Malay behaves or dresses like a White, he/she will invite scorns and insults. For example, if they see Angelina Jolie or Brad Pitt in the magazines, they will praise, "oh, so beautiful!" "oh, so hot!", but if a Malay were to dress like them (esp sexy dresses), they will hurl insults like "You should be ashamed of yourself!" "Oh what is happening to our Malay girls!" "Oh Allah! Sign of the end of the world!" etc. Amusing, huh?

Chinese are Westernized in their behaviour but most are still traditional when it comes to love (esp the choice of partners) and family.
