Some asian parents favor own ethnic groups as their children's spouses. Some may look for potential spouses in Asia for their children.

If they cannot find a spouse in their country of residence, they would not consider other ethnic groups and would find someone in the asian country they or their parents came from, and try to ask that someone to move to where they live. For example there are many divorced chinese ,vietnamese and filipino men in western countries and also Chinese men in Japan and Singapore seeking new spouses from less wealthy asian countries . It may not work for South Korea, Singapore, Japan and HK where many women earn good money and western countries are not attractive to these women in terms of money and social welfare.

The 1st choice was because he wanted his oldest son to marry someone who he considered "having Korean blood", but would share the same American culture as him. As for the younger son, he said he could marry whoever he liked.

I think many guys would like some variety in their dating scene, but might still feel some parental or social pressure to marry someone with the same background. I think that's common for people from any background. That said, I've known a few older couples where the guy was Asian and the gal was Caucasian. Not many, but they exist.

In more recent years, I see more East Asian guys with Caucasian women, but still not as many as the reverse. I don't think Austin is really any different from Houston or Dallas in this regard ... although the younger social scene in Austin is more concentrated in the core there, so it might be easier to see different pairings.

You will change your mind once you are actually in India and ogled by the men there.

I know there are people like you. There are women of all races who only date Korean guys because of the arising K-pop popularity. Yep, everyone knows that. However, the vast majority of white women don't like us and it's been that way for a long time.

The irony is, most of my friends of different races and nationalities told me they prefer Asian women over their female counterparts. How irony is that? Seems like the so-called different stardards of beauty and cultural difference don't matter to them.

Or standards of beauty differ among the genders, so they do see Asians as more attractive and they are hoping the the stereotypical cultural differences are true

@seasoncb Many Vietnamese girls are very beautiful. To tell the truth, if a Vietnamese woman and an American woman I date Vietnamese women. In China Usually very few men like American women, Canadian women, India women and African women. ... This is not racism. If a man likes white women Usually like Russia and Ukraine.

The parents of one of my female friends in CA who is Taiwanese-American tried to convince her to let them help her meet a guy from mainland China that her aunts and uncles knew because she hadn't married by her late 20ís. Rich guy from Fujian, he flew out to LA to meet her and it was really cringey.
