White guy dating asian

A little over a year later, Maltempo married a woman he met on the site.

But dating — online or off — was hardly a smooth experience.

“Even if you give them a little bit of room in terms of looks, that still leaves a really high bar for Asian men to be considered attractive at all.” To improve his success rate on Match.com, Maltempo created a rule for himself.

Rather than cast a wide net, he would message just one woman per week.

Compared with black, white and Latino men, Asian men receive fewer matches and messages from women on the dating site.

That’s not to say online dating can’t work for Asian men.

“It makes it seem like there’s a dialogue going on from the very beginning,” he said.

Part of the problem, she says, is that the white American man has become the standard for what is attractive. There are few Asian American male leads in Hollywood, and only recently have more Asian characters been cast as love interests.

He was “looking for a person who he wanted to spend a lifetime together with,” Jiang said, “instead of playing around.” READ MORE: Sexting is widespread.

Being ‘into Asian chicks’ is a preference many guys don’t seem to have a problem expressing, with some even wearing it as a badge of pride.

The TV shows “Master of None” and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” for example, stand out for pairing Asian men with white women.

“I know sometimes Asian men are not considered attractive, just because we don’t have many examples of Asian men in the media to be considered attractive,” Maltempo said.

It just means they often find themselves making an effort to improve their chances.
