How about a woman born in the United States to Korean, Japanese, or Chinese immigrants, who never learned her ancestral tongue and who is completely Americanized in outlook and customs and is Asian only genetically?

The proliferation of idiotic threads on CD is regrettable indeed.
LOL!! That about sums it right up....

Yea, I understand, American women generally know LESS about what's going on in the word, but at the same time, they want MORE of what all the world has to offer. I find that annoying.

The difference between american or foreign that I reckognize the most is simple, Foreign women remain WHO they are while bringing to the relationship what they can where they can to make the relationship work. American women tend to think they have to change too much or aren't willing to change at all to make a relationship work, they are too concerned about their rights, what they WANT to do, and are generally too self centered and high maintenance. Also American women demand equal pay yet don't generally work hard enough physically to understand a man's physical and emotional needs. Equality begins with teamwork so both sides understand each other's goals and needs. The rational couples out there aren't in sexism battles and don't care about how they look to the world, they are devoted to each other FIRST because that is love, and what the rest of the world thinks should be completely unimportant.

You're right. The guys who are the most vocal about wanting Asian women aren't really talking about an Oxford-educated financier from Hong Kong, they're talking about a Vietnamese peasant girl who can barely speak English and who would think that their $9/hour paycheck from Staples makes them a millionaire.

Hi fleettiebelle,

And we all know how relevant lip service is. It takes thousands of dollars to actually commence with such relationship. Anyone making $9 an hour is not generally going to have himself a peasant girl. Women don't care about men who work at staples. They care about men who consider 15K to be chump change looking outside the US. Detroit autoworkers were seen bashing Toyota for the same reason. The rule of commerce : Competition is a sin.

That's true. Poor guys can't afford to look abroad.

I only date Asian American/Asian Canadian women meaning they are Asian descent born in America/Canada and speak English without a FOB accent... I can have sex with a FOB but I can't have a relationship with one haha!

P.S. and I prefer East or Southeast Asians... not South Asians or Middle Easterners

WOW! This is just asking for trouble! Who does your best friend love??? Is simple as that!
I am a Asian Woman.
Personally white men tend to stick to their own at the end of the day. It is easier for the white to be comfortable to bring the white women home to his parents for marriage.

White women are really hot in my opinion and are quite young.
