In a speed-dating study conducted at Columbia University in , Asian men also had the most difficulty getting a second date. My parents grew up financially unstable in China. They look back at it and laugh now, but my mother recalls having to share one bowl of rice for dinner with all her siblings. Whenever the rice got too low in the bowl, they would add water to make the illusion that there was more food. Everything I want, I get on my own. Like my mother, I am resilient and I am a go-getter.

There was so much hype about this movie that I had to see it. It makes me believe these sappy stories happen in my backyard. Then I was browsing my Twitter and I saw a post from novelist, Celeste Ng sharing her essay in The Cut about being harassed for marrying a non-Asian man. However, her efforts are futile as the damage has been done , creating a further divide within the Asian community. I am a Chinese-Canadian woman married to a Chinese-Canadian man and we have a daughter.
I know I cannot control how society evolves as polarized as it may become. What I can do is to continue sharing stories that illustrate the journey of how I came to embrace my Chinese-Canadian culture, promoting the good I see in my culture and encouraging the next generation to be proud of where they came from, something I think Celeste struggled to articulate. And among the million reasons why I love this man and why I married him, there are 4 that are related to our shared ethnicity.

Not long after actress and writer Diane Farr exchanged her first “I love you” with her now-husband, Seung Yong Chung, he gave her some.
A heartbreaking video has recently surfaced depicting a Chinese father telling his daughter that Blacks and Indians are not suitable marriage partners, and that White people would be preferred instead. Perhaps wanting to drive the discussion in a certain direction, the Redditor pressed her father. When asked why, her father seemed unsure at first. There is not a good impression. Not pleased with the answer, OP persisted. Her father clarified his position. The video then cuts to another portion of the conversation.
My daughter wants to date outside our race…
When I was in my second year of university, a stranger approached a friend and me on the streets of Melbourne, asking to photograph us for his website about interracial couples. A little taken aback, we told him we weren’t together but had friends that might fit the bill. He went on to explain that many of his friends were Asian men who thought Anglo-Australian women just weren’t interested in dating them. His website was his way of showing this wasn’t true. After a fittingly awkward goodbye, I never saw that man or, concerningly, his website again, but the unusual encounter stayed with me.
It was the first time someone had given voice to an insecurity I held but had never felt comfortable communicating.

When I think of what it means to be “all-American,” I imagine a prototypical white male — physically well-built, outgoing, charismatic, liked by everyone.

They want you to strive for perfection in every single avenue. This may have, at one time, mostly applied to grades. My father, who not so coincidentally works in the IT field, probably wants me to be with someone as career-driven as himself, someone who can provide for a family of five like he has. The thing is, I am not my parents. I have no plans to move to a mostly white, affluent suburb in Middle America.
My current partner, Adam, is someone who mostly gets me. But meet they did. The wedding was in San Francisco, and I was in the bridal party. My parents flew in from Ohio. Whether they were ready or not, Adam and my parents were going to meet and even spend some quality time together. I spent much of the drive up having minor freakouts. What if it turns out to be completely awkward? What if they have nothing to talk about?
Bringing Home the Wrong Race
Finally, there are moviemakers and writers who can debunk these racist stereotypes. The camera lingers on him and his fitness-app abs for a few seconds longer than normal, his shirtless body objectified just as thoroughly as actresses have been for decades.

However, one challenge that Western spouses point out about their Chinese husbands is communication. If something is wrong, such as a problem at work, he won’t talk about it.
She said compared to men from the West, her husband is very quiet and works much more. But the fact that he’s not saying anything bothers me,” she said.
