As someone who has worked with JT Tran of “ABCs of Attraction” for years, I speak from experience when I say I’ve come to know what it’s like for men in the dating scene.I’ll be the first to admit that, if dating happened in a textbook scenario, it’s actually fairly straightforward for women.Maybe you get in some witty banter or buy him a drink before he turns around and tells you that he doesn’t date “your kind” — whatever that kind may be. Something that you can’t change (or don’t even want to change). Unfortunately, this is an all-too common story for Asian men.Maybe he doesn’t date women in a certain age range. If it doesn’t hurt, I think you’re lying, because to not be accepted for who you are as a person is pretty crushing — especially when you’re trying to get to know them since there’s some sort of attraction there. JT Tran has stories galore, both personal and from his students, where an Asian woman turned him down because of his race.Recommended by 4 out of 5 people that recommend things. This year alone, we have SEVEN high profile engagements between billionaire men and what are supposedly (according to Western culture) the most undesirable women on earth—Black women.
About the author: Born at a very young age; self-made thousandaire. Still haven’t completed the civil war quest in Skyrim but I’m kind of okay with that. That’s toxic to Mark and their future relationship (and for the potential half-Asian sons they may have).Asian men aren’t crying “over the loss” of Lily May Mac.But Lily will most likely date and marry a White man. And if her comments (and her mother’s) reveal anything, it’s that those children will grow up HAPA in a world that already minimizes the injustices they feel and a home that offers no respite from it.That their Asian heritage comes second to their White ancestry, and that their Filipino blood isn’t something to be proud of.
They’re not sad that a young woman has deigned them unworthy of her affection. To most, it’s just another paper cut amongst the scars — it might have stung the first time they received one, but after a while they barely feel them anymore.
