In my life, I've often encountered a certain type of Western guy who was attracted to Asian women. I wanted to know why, so I set out to make a documentary.
What emerged five years later, after hundreds of hours of research, including interviews with men and women who posted ads for Asian women on sites like Craigslist and Asiafriendfinder, was "Seeking Asian Female", an eccentric, tender and at-times uncomfortable love story between a 60-year-old American man and his 30-year-old Chinese fiancée.
They can be loyal and faithful spouses for a lifetime, and bring greater levels of joy and fulfillment to your life on a day to day basis.
Girls in China, Vietnam, and the rest of Asia grow up in a culture that still places an enormous amount of importance on being a good wife.
There are innumerable Asian ladies who are beautiful, talented, and really want to marry a Western man.
Asia is a huge area that covers nearly 30% of the he world's total land mass.
So I’m here today to dispel (or confirm) some of those myths, but only according to my own experience. This swift technique is an ancient move passed on by his ancestors – a learned behavior through many many years watching his parents challenge their opponents to who gets to the cheque first. Headache, red flushing, even itchiness will occur after a few sips of alcohol. Many asians brought up in a traditional upbringing (both men and women) choose to live at home with their parents until they get married.
Indeed, in 1980 interracial marriage was fairly rare in the United States, with only 7% of all marriages occurring between people of different races.
Nowadays, the intermarriage rate is 15% overall, but it is 36% among Asian females.
I'm also creating a companion project, "They're All So Beautiful," an online video series and forum to discuss the nuances of race, romance and "yellow fever."Though the concept dates back centuries, dating Asian women, or, more accurately, the idea of dating Asian women, has officially gone mainstream.
While I spoke to a lot of aging white men, I also spoke with young hipsters, black men and Latinos who desire Asian women.
