I would say the majority of Americans in America are pretty indifferent although Thai and Vietnamese food seem to have gotten fairly popular.
Personally I can't wait to go back, one more semester and I'll be a college graduate.

I know some White guys here in San Francisco who mostly prefer to date Asian women. But I have NEVER met a White woman who mostly prefers to date Asian men. I have met some White women who are open to dating Asian men but they are not obsessed with Asian men, meaning they don't have Asian fever.

Asian fever is an overwhelmingly White male thing.

My guess is that since heavy is seen as rich, both heavy men and women have a better chance here than they would back home. So at least in the Philippines, American women and men seem to be desired and thought of positively for the most part.

Now as a side to that, I have found for the most part that many of rich Filipinos do not want us westerners here and definitely do not want any of us trying to tell them how to fix their country.
Most Filipino men are short and most Western White women make a huge deal about height when it comes to dating. So I don't think Filipino men will ever become sex symbols in the eyes of Western White women.

Do you think a 5 foot 3 Filipino male immigrant in the U.S or Australia for example would be able to attract a lot of White women ? I don't think he would. He would get an extremely high amount of rejections from White women before eventually finding a White woman who does not care about height.

And among White women who do not care about height at all when it comes to potential romance, most of them are ugly. Meaning they are more likely to look like Honey Boo Boo's mother than they are to look like Scarlett Johansson.

White women who are very ugly can not be so picky about a man's height, because they themselves do not have too many options in the dating scene.

Where someone who looks like Scarlett Johansson for example can be picky and say she will not date any man who is shorter than 5 foot 9 for example. Her hotness gives her the privilege to be more picky when it comes to a man's height.

I remember the Australian representative for Miss Universe 1994, Michelle Van Eimeren was once married to a Filipino, Ogie Alcasid and he's a short guy & they got 2 daughters.

& even Mangyan tribe Filipino is married to White American missionary. I guess not all western women check any physical difference or looks but it's rare though I think.

Actually Mongolians are shorter than N.Chinese and Koreans, and Inuit aren't particularly tall. I think the tallest people in China actually live in Shandong. The people there are known for being tall.

In my experience in Asia (from tallest to shortest):

Beijing/Tianjin
Xian
Fuzhou/Taipei
Singapore/Hong Kong/Bangkok
Kuala Lumpur
Hanoi/Sri Lanka
Ho Chi Minh City/Bali

Its uncommon in Indonesia too, usually they don't really care about look and they marries Indonesian men that by the local average wouldn't be considered attractive. A lot of them seems to be shorter than the wife, but they don't care about it that much.
