You know they say white guys dating asian girls
STEP ONE: Finding an Asian Asian girls typically hang out at one of three places: the mall, the library, or Pinkberry. If, by the end of the night, she giggles into her napkin/hand fan, you've got yourself a second date.
When you get there, look around: the best Asian girl to pick up will be the one wearing a hoodie and heels (there is always one). As she takes out her phone to tell you, you should make a nice comment about her phone flair (Asian girls always have some bedazzled jank hanging off our phones, usually a cartoon duck or a jade tiger). Asian girls will go on a date with anyone if she can tell a cutesy story about it later: "And then, after he saw my Keroppi keychain, he asked me out at Pinkberry! " STEP TWO: The First Date It doesn't matter where you take an Asian girl on a first date as long as you stick to the following topics of conversation: food, fashion, and making fun of other Asians ("So, your friends just stayed in and did math problems? However, no matter what you do, don't step on the yellow-fever land mine that is acknowledging the Asian fetish.
But while many see no issue with it, more than a few Asian women find it deeply frustrating.
In a recent article titled ‘I hope you die from yellow fever’, Caressa Wong pulls no punches.
I first heard about “yellow fever” during elementary school after a few guys mentioned it.
Back then, the term was shorthand for someone white who had a crush on someone Asian, and at our school, it applied to the girls as much as it did the boys.
But go to Google — or just look around — and realize that some other kind of “yellow fever” is infecting people to an unsettling degree.
STEP THREE: The Relationship If you get to the point now where you're dating an Asian girl, you better understand where she's coming from.
After spending half of my twenties living and working in Hong Kong and South Korea, I returned to North America last summer, at 30, with a reputation as a White Guy Who Dates Asian Girls.
Friends are once again teasing me for having “yellow fever,” and as far as facts are concerned, I can’t argue with the designation: My current partner is Chinese-American, while my most recent ex-girlfriend is Vietnamese-Canadian. I can dismiss their playful ribbing the same way I dismissed most name-calling during elementary school—after all, there’s nothing wrong with dating women of Asian descent—but “yellow fever” isn’t an innocuous, empty label. Friends may just be having fun, but to my ears, I’m being called a deviant. Google “yellow fever,” and you’ll see that many Asian women have taken back the term to shame white men who fetishize them based on racial stereotypes.
But in order to arrive at an acceptable hypothesis, the need to examine all possible variables surrounding the idea must not be overlooked.
Let’s take the account of Chinese writer Yuan Ren, who defined yellow fever as the “acute sexual preference” of Caucasian men for East Asian women.
