In the US that is.

Usually all stereotypes of White males are positive. In movies they are the Prince Charmings, the Superheros, the hard working doctors, the bright scientists, and the cool guys. Women see them as being "safe" and such. Girls from other backgrounds assume they are rich and view them as royalty.

I am of South Asian descent myself and I have been told from family members that usually if a South Asian woman does not marry a guy from her own background, she would marry a White guy because they are viewed as royalty.

I want to hear your experiences with this.

Blacks, Arabs and Hispanics are often considered "exotic" and black males are rumored to be well endowed (and the vast masses of women tend to cling on to modern myths in an almost hysteric manner, just look the exercise forum what some women worry about..."Will I accidently pack on 50 lbs of lean muscle if I lift way too light weights to accomplish anything in a million years and do that once a week?, my mom had big bones." lmao)

Many Asian men may be at a disadvantaged because of cultural differences.

I've said ad nauseum that despite being white, I don't do well with women.

MAYBE white people are, idk, "glorified" in media and whatnot, but being white won't make up for being overweight, ugly or milquetoast.

In some situations yes, in others no. I'd say on the whole that it's a wash.

Yes: There seems to be a large number of east and southeast asian girls that find white guys appealing. With this particular demographic I feel that white guys have a slight edge over other races.

No: White guys do not seem to appeal much to black or hispanic girls. I have only infrequently observed such couples. To compare, I have known many black guy/white girl couples.

I would also note that "white" isn't really homogeneous: there are your very pale Scandinavian looking men and your much swarthier southern European men. The latter group definitely seems to have more cross-racial appeal, at least in my casual observations.

Why does the same guy post the same thread question almost every other week?

The search function might be helpful to search the forums to see if this question has been answered.

I know this question has been answered about as many times in as many different ways as it has been asked.

Depends on who you are asking. For instance, dating White men never had much appeal to me. I love Spanish and Black guys. Ask someone else, and they may say that all they date is White men.
