Ok.. lets give this age Issue a rest for a while.
Next thing on my mind is the bi-nationality trend in dating/marriage.
No... I don't mean Malay marry Chinese, Or Indian dating Malay that kind of thing. But the surge in multi-NATIONAL couples. For instance, Singaporean man with Vietnamese/Chinese National woman.... or Caucasian man with Singaporean woman.
I think that we all have our reasons for being attracted to different nationalities. If other people are distressed by your choices, that's their own fault, not yours.
There’s a running generalization now in our community that the most successful and most beautiful Asian women (and cheap sluts, haha) prefer to date White. We assume this after observing countless instances of successful, beautiful Asian women marrying White men. In our male-dominant male-centric tradition, we blame the Asian woman for the phenomenon.
Personally, I think... for a number of reasons, Asian men have lost the confidence to approach the particular Asian woman they want to date. Any woman they perceive as even remotely possibly maybe out of their league... they will simply walk the other way and admire from afar. While men of other races, especially White men, pursue them left and right. It thus makes statistical sense that these women would date White men, because they’re not pursued by any promising candidates from the Asian race.
In addition, Asian women who, if I may put it delicately enough, are less than conventionally appealing to the typical Asian man (maybe she talks about sex on her blog, or is too tanned, or will bust some balls), will still find avid fans among White men. (Btw, the Asian fetish issue is beyond the scope of this post).
I'm sure men who date women from other nationalities have their reasons too.
If you have a gripe about Singapore girls or men hooking up with men/women of different Nationalities... Your problem is that there is a whole world of independent, dexterous individuals who are actually just not interested in you.
[Ok... this may be the alcohol talking because I just came back from a great champagne and wine and beer type BBQ. But it is a phenomena worth discussing I think!]
So singaporean marry ang moh.
and 3rd world country marry singaporeans is a level up for them
I've been traveling across Asia for many years and I've always noticed that the most successful and beautiful Asian women are with Asian men.
I've noted that in Japan, Korea, Thailand and Hong Kong. Can't say about Singapore though as I don't know Singapore well enough. Ya really think Singaporean men don't have enough "confidence to approach the particular Asian woman they want to date"?
I'm Asian and I travel most of the time with a couple of Caucasian friends (we're about 30 years old) who back in Europe were very successful with women, more than me. Here in Asia my friends can tell you that Asian women are more attracted to me than to them.
I do agree with your point when you say that lots of Asian women that are not considered to be appealing by Asian men will still find avid fans among Caucasians
Dated white guys before but personally I don't find them as attractive as Asian men.
That said, I don't find Singaporean men attractive at all.
Been here a long time but have yet to find one Singaporean guy that really attracts me.
After all, it's your choice, and people never fail to judge. But why let their judgment bother you? Its your life to lead and live anyway!
I can vouch that if a Singaporean man pursue a woman left and right, he is deemed as "despo", "don't know when to give up", "stalker", "disgusting lor".
But because its a while guy who does the exact same thing, he is "confident", "romantic". They travel half across the globe to come here so when they go all out, local women feel "special".
Its like, if a local girl throw herself at any men regardless of race or nationalities, "shes a slut". If a white girl does that, shes "hot, sexy" and we feel "lucky". You know?
