In the dating game, it’s not enough to say that it’s Men versus Women. There are all kinds of other variables that come into play. Short versus tall, atheist versus religious, even Colts versus Patriots. And hopefully the race thing has been done enough that we don’t have to go there…we’re not talking black versus white or Pacific Islander versus sub-Saharan African. No need to be that guy.
The weird thing is, people keep bringing it up, like we’re gonna somehow forget where our ancestors came from. I don’t think there’s any bigger “us versus them” on the internet than in the realm of white guys versus Asian guys, especially when it comes to dating other girls.
I keep finding posts like that one that are all braggy, basically saying, “Haha! We steal your girls!” and the really funny thing is the posts are universally split down the middle: HaHa, we Asian guys take all your white girls! versus Yo, dude, we totally snagged all your Asian girls!
I’m no math major, but if the Asian guys are taking all the white girls, and the white guys are taking all the Asian girls…yeah. Did everyone just swap, or something?
(In the interest of full disclosure, I have to confess. As the proverbial white girl, I can tell you one of the best things about dating an Asian guy: I generally don’t have to tell him to CHANGE his clothes, let alone pick them up off the floor. That might be stereotyping right there. It’s also possible that I’ve just dated some real assholes, and as we all know, assholes come in every flavor.)
So while the white guys, white girls, Asian guys, and Asian girls all just play Date Me Roulette and take turns pairing off like the dance scene in West Side Story, there’s still one universal truth about dating…you just can’t trust a Patriots fan.
