I also went to Hong Kong last summer, and it really opened my eyes to my Chinese heritage.

There is a difference between having yellow fever and simply being attracted to the physical features of people from a certain culture.

I love him for who he is, not for the colour of his skin. if you liked this post, you might like this post on awkward phases I had as a Toronto kid.

It’s time to have an honest, open discussion about interracial relationships.

No, I don’t mean gabbing about the latest drama between Olivia and Fitz.

As my boyfriend (who is a white male himself) puts it, “Every white guy wants to have sex with an Asian girl, but not all of them want to date one.” We all know the popular slang term “yellow fever”, which describes a (usually) white male who fetishizes Asian women.

On the other hand, there are also plenty of Asian women who fetishize white guys just as much.

I’m proud to be Asian, and I’m working on learning Cantonese and Vietnamese (at least the basics).

Dating Adam doesn’t “upgrade” me in any way – we’re both equals.Age is the crucial factor with those in their 20s and 30s more than twice as likely to be living with someone from another background as those over 65, reflecting a less rigid approach to identity over time.But the figures also shows marked differences in attitudes to outsiders within different communities – often reflected in the whether people are married or cohabiting.We once overheard a comment from a stranger saying “where do I get myself a hot Asian girl?” but he was obviously from a very different generation.I felt like I was sort of “upgrading” in a way by moving away from my heritage. Adam and I have been dating for over a year, and I’ve learned that we are very much alike.
