White, black, yellow – really, one’s ethnicity shouldn’t make a difference as we are all part of the human race. However, keep in mind that there are certain cultural differences that come to play that shape a person’s mentality, values, ideas of what a relationship dynamic should look like, and subsequently, their behaviour.
And because of this, sometimes, there is some truth to the cultural differences of people raised with diverse upbringings. When the dinner cheque arrives at the table, the Asian guy will swoop in like a properly trained ninja and attack the dinner cheque before you can even do that “reach” for your wallet. When it comes to alcohol consumption, according to research, the ‘Asian Flush’ occurs due to a deficiency in an enzyme called aldehyde dehydrogenase, which is part of a vital process that digests alcohol.

There are many myths and stereotypes when it comes to dating asian guys.
The Question:“Why do white guys go for Asian girls and vice-versa whereas white girls don’t go for Asian guys and vice-versa? There is, whether we want to admit it or not, a social fetish dealing with Asian women. But, compared to my many western friends here, I am not normal. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that having the beefy, hunky western male swagger up would just make an Asian woman’s day. In both western and Asian societies, for the most part, the man does the approaching. I think in Korean relationships a lot of different scenarios can play out in how two people meet, and the Korean man is not used to being so aggressive. So, instead she sits and waits and wonders why Romeo over there isn’t coming up to her. I’m not saying EVERYONE has this particular fetish, but it is fairly common. The stereotypical skinny, awkward and shy Asian man is not something most women find attractive. This is where the divide happens, and it can be seen on the video linked on the site. Unfortunately, the western girl is used to and expects, most of the time, the western approach. I am not sure how true this is outside Korea, but I cannot tell you the number of times I have heard this. I asked him, after we started dating, WHY he didn’t approach me. I was making eyes at him all night and even invited him to sit with me…four times. These three things combined, stereotypes or not, really help to explain the breakdown. Something about the Asian woman, be it the assumed submissiveness, her typical slim size or her ‘exotic’ features, attract men. Western men, are confident and secure that they can do this approach. In his words, and so many others, there is this idea in the Asian man’s mind that the western girl is JUST NOT INTERESTED. So, no matter how approachable, or interested, or excited the western girl is to meet the Asian guy, if it gets to that point, the man believes it’s not right. 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.Before you make any accusations of me making sweeping generalizations, note that my points here are completely biased according to my own sample size. White guys are much more laid back and are happy to carry on the conversation for another 30 minutes while the check is laying on the table; some are even willing to go dutch to further showcase their support towards gender equality. But, enzyme or no enzyme, don’t think this will deter an asian guy from schooling you in a drinking game though. Asian culture emphasizes family and collectivity, so it is quite the norm to take care of your parents while living under the same roof. There are many behaviours that are emphasized in a traditional asian culture.
