    Uh, but I don't. Why would I have to sell that?

    Look, I know some guys have "yellow fever." But some Asian women have... I dunno... "white heat." haha

    Besides, if anything I have a secular fetish. haha
    Well, I near ya about information sinking in. The student will learn when his mind is open to the lesson. Most of us have to hear lessons several times before they resonate and we internalize them.

    In the general world of white guys seeking Asian women, I think you DO have an advantage because you are not there for the usual Yellow Fever reasons (you guys used that phrase, I was not gonna use it!) so sell yourself!

    you arent there for the petite beauty of sterotypical Asian women. In fact, you may have a hard time finding attraction with that population.

    The first time I tried sparkling water I was utterly disgusted.

    The second time I fell in love with that fizzy H2O!

    Perhaps the same can be said about women with petite physiques.

    So on online dating sites I have gotten flirts and likes from black women. Then I get a message like: "I take the flirt back. You are an atheist." or "I liked you based on your looks. Then I read your profile. Not interested anymore." or "We'll never be a match! I love Jesus! And you don't even know him."

    But so far Asian women have been very receptive. It is like night and day. Buddhists seem to be mellow and non-evangelical. So that is pretty cool too.

    well you probably do need to date a better personality match. meh I don't wish to deal in racial stereotypes here especially as it probably depends on region of the country, age, etc. etc.. I take it you don't like white women either? Although what race was your ex-wife?
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    True!

    Also true! But... sure, a woman from the Philippines is likely to be Xian -- probably Catholic. Though a woman from Thailand is likely to be Buddhist or secular. A woman from Vietnam is probably secular, same for China or Japan.

    I like white women; it ought to go without saying.

    And I have asked many out over the years. They tend to decline, or if we go on a date we quickly realize we're not a match. I am not sure why. Essentially though, white women tend to ignore my messages on dating sites at a much higher rate than black women.

    But also, when I went to college and I was suddenly around black women all the time. I just noticed they gravitated toward me. Not sure why. One woman did try to explain her theory of why to me. She said: "You look at black women like we are just as attractive as another other race or ethnicity. You talk and flirt with us like you really mean it, you listen to us."

    She is white. She was a very unique woman though -- and we met when I was 21 and she was 19. And to be honest, I bet if she and I met today she would not even look my way for a second.
