I recently joined an online dating service.
Hello, my name is Angie in Texas and I date online.
The experience overall has been really positive. I've met a few men who are interesting, smart, funny, good-looking, etc. I have even gone on a few dates with these men. And how do I know they're good-looking? Because many of these sites (I use only one in particular) allow you to post photos of yourself and actually encourage you to do so - you generate more interest with photos . . .
The problem is that the photos are a dead give-away that I am Asian. (There's a place to denote your ethnicity on your profile, but it's the photos that do it, I think . . .) I have no issue with the fact that I am Asian. I know it. My family knows it. Even my friends know it.
The problem lies in the responding interested parties.
Like: Asian Fetish Man.
Asian Fetish Man is the man who says "ni how" or "an yeoung" at the bookstore. Asian Fetish Man is the guy you dated who on your first date wanted to know ALL about your "Asian-ess" or worse, kept talking about his experience with Asia, the people and the culture . . . Asian Fetish Man is also the creppy guy who you *just KNOW* has that demoralizing fantasy of "oh me so horny" sexiness or complete submission.
Have you run into Asian Fetish Man? And now that you're a MILF, do you still?
