Emasculation and asexuality
In the mid 1800 Chinese laboreres were given an emasculated image due to the physical appearance of these laborers and the fact that they did what Westerners considered to be "women's work." The Chinese workers sported long braids (a queue) and sometimes wore long silk gowns. Because Chinese men were seen as an economic threat to the white workforce, laws were passed that barred the Chinese from many "male" labour intensive-industries, the only jobs available to the Chinese of the time were jobs that whites deemed "women's work" (i.e., laundry, cooking, and childcare). It has been noted by some that Hollywood stereotypes Asian men as supergeeks or asexual martial artists who have no love interest in films. The character of Long Duk Dong in the 1984 cult classic "Sixteen Candles", is still vilified for being offensive, even though he did get the girl. Roger Ebert, however, defended him, writing that Gedde Watanabe "elevates his role from a potentially offensive stereotype to high comedy". In the documentary The Slanted Screen, Gene Cajayon, the Filipino American director of the 2001 film "The Debut," the first Fil-Am movie to be released nationwide in the United States, talks about the revised ending for the action movie "Romeo Must Die," a retelling of "Romeo and Juliet" where the R&B star Aaliyah plays Juliet to the Chinese actor Jet Li's Romeo. The original ending had Aaliyah kissing Li, which would have explained the title of Romeo, a scenario that didn't test well with an "urban audience."  So the studio changed it. The new ending had Trish (Aaliyah) giving Han (Jet Li) a tight hug. According to Cajayon, "Mainstream America, for the most part, gets uncomfortable with seeing an Asian man portrayed in a sexual light." [

Which explains why all those english-speaking white westerner women in Shanghai do not want to go out with young handsome Chinese men.
Those english-speaking white westerner women have been taught to believe all the bad negative stereotypes against Chinese men.
On the other hand, I met a nice young italian-speaking white Italian woman who had been learning to speak Mandarin at university. That Italian women is fascinated by Chinese culture and that Italian woman had been dreaming about falling in love with a nice handsome Chinese man.
That white Italian woman has met many handsome Chinese men. She has gone out with many young Chinese men, and she is so happy living in China with so many young handsome Chinese men available.
