Are Asian men the most undesirable partners when it comes to dating? The online dating website "Are You Interested" recently surveyed more than 2.4 million interactions on its site and confirmed: Asian men are in absolute low demand. As someone put it, "Asian men, along with black women, are probably the least desirable people."


Cultural stereotypes of Asian men may make them less attractive to women of all races, including Asians. A 2007 study conducted by researchers at Columbia University, which surveyed a group of over400 students who participated orchestrated "speed dating" sessions, showed that African-American and white women said "yes" 65% less often to the prospect of dating Asian men in comparison of men of their own race, while Hispanic women said yes 50% less frequently.


Despite iconic masculine Asian role models like Bruce Lee, Asian men are often portrayed as scrawny males who spend more time studying than lifting weights in the gym, appearing in popular culture as soft-spoken, reserved types who rarely take part in activities that people qualify as "masculine" like professional football or construction work, as characters played for laughs.


When it comes to dating the rules aren't always black and white. And when you add race into the equation things can become even more complicated. But are Asian men doomed undateable? Do you think the stereotype mentioned above is a bias towards them? How are your Asian friends like?

I see many Asian men dating Australian women in Australia
Stan, you're holding a gun to God's head. I can't think of a metaphor that's better than this.

the title should be "are Asian men undatable to western girls?" the answer is 100% right!

Asian men are attractive to Asian girls, vice versa.
