Korean men dating caucasian women
You know, there's obvious physical attraction of course. MIKE MIOCEVICH: It was in high school at a high school dance and basically the entire year was basically all mostly white people from like, you know, Perth, but there was one girl from South Africa who had come over, her family had come over so, yeah, went to the dance and, yeah, took her. MIKE MIOCEVICH: If I had any kind of reservations before I didn't have any after, so. Sophie Song, you're in South Korea visiting your Korean in-laws at the moment. SOPHIE SONG: I probably have always had more interest in darker haired, darker eyed people, and what I had found, you know, my experience of the Korean people I had met prior to meeting Han was that a lot of them, by their upbringing, are quite family oriented and that was something that very much appealed to me. SOPHIE SONG: We actually met at a pub, we both had gone with our respective friends and we were watching a football final and basically I met him briefly in the queue at the bar.I do find, as your guest I just find that I click a lot easier with, like Rudo that I do with other kind of women and"¦ JENNY BROCKIE: She's married by the way? So"¦ JENNY BROCKIE: So you went to the dance with the one black girl in the school? He just approached me and said hello, he introduced himself and then actually we parted ways but a little bit later in the night there was a guy at the bar who was quite persistently talking to me that I was trying to find a way out of the conversation and really struggling and it happened that Han walked past and I saw him and recognised his face and I thought well, here goes nothing and I grabbed his hand and I said to the other guy: "Hey, this is my boyfriend", and even though Han had quite limited English skills, he picked up what was going on in the moment and he, you know, he acted the part and he rescued me. Han, when this happened in the bar you didn't speak English, did you, very much?John specifically sought out an Asian woman for a partner because "Asian women treat western men better than a white woman might".Edelisa thought a western man would be "better than a Filipino husband" because they're more responsible and provide better for their children.The study found that race plays a big part in people's decisions about who they choose to contact and respond to online.It found that heterosexual men of all races respond to all women except for African-American, and that women of all races respond first to Caucasian men. He says "multi-ethnic coupling" will become increasingly more common as time goes by – it's an inevitable consequence of the proximity of so many races in the same place. JENNY BROCKIE: So is it purely physical or is it a mixture of a whole lot of things?
After three months of chatting online, John proposed to Edelisa – before they'd met in person.He also says there are evolutionary reasons why people of mixed-race would be seen as the most attractive. I've certainly been on dates with people of different races but I've just found that I had a better connection with people of Caucasian heritage. RUDO BANYA: I think I like the contrast, the difference in skin tone, the ebony and the ivory, I quite like contrast. RUDO BANYA: It's a mixture of a whole lot of things, it's not just physical and it's not just sexual.JENNY BROCKIE: Welcome everyone, good to have you with us tonight. RUDO BANYA: I really don't have a rational explanation as to why, I just am. I think personality wise as well, certain interests and things - I just tend to find that I connect better with Caucasian men. LINDA BENZ: Would be for darker men, African men predominantly is probably where I'm sort of more drawn to.I won't lose anything, it was just hi and then she was, she said hi back to me, very friendly, which I didn't expect at all. HAN SONG: Because I was, I grew up in Korea and in Korea, not many Caucasian people in Korea, even though there are some English teachers, I can't meet them personally so I thought they are very hard people to be with, especially as Asian.So"¦ JENNY BROCKIE: So you didn't expect to date a white woman? So I had a kind of fantasy that I want to date a Caucasian woman. JENNY BROCKIE: But you were going out during this time, yes? JENNY BROCKIE: So it begs the question of what kept you going during the six months then?JENNY BROCKIE: So when did this attraction start for you, how did it start? JENNY BROCKIE: Okay, I want you to explain to me a little bit more about what it is about black women that you find so attractive, are there qualities that you see that you find, is it physical, is it cultural, what is it? He had quite limited English when we first met but actually he was able to convey his personality and sense of humour really clearly, despite his language limitation, and I came to feel that we had quite similar, I guess, I guess complementing personalities.MIKE MIOCEVICH: Probably when I was quite young I used to read a lot of books about missionaries and stories of Africa and things like that and it just kind of got me interested. MIKE MIOCEVICH: It's kind of a mix of like the whole lot. But yeah, it's just a whole new, just a big mixing of the whole kind of thing. When did this attraction start do you think, I mean in terms of you actually dating someone? JENNY BROCKIE: Had you dated other Korean men before Han? JENNY BROCKIE: Okay, so had it been a preference for a long time or did you have a preference, or didn't it matter?Ida Harding migrated to Australia from Ghana at the age of four.Despite growing up and going to school with mostly white people, Ida has never dated someone from a different racial background.Oh, okay let's go, something like that, so"¦ JENNY BROCKIE: Okay, I just wonder the extent, Sophie, to which the physical, the sexual attraction kept you going during that time when you didn't have any language, so I'm just interested in how big the physical attraction was for both of you?SOPHIE SONG: Well, the thing is basically his language level was very limited, which obviously caused a lot of problems, but he still could convey humour and still could convey his personality which I think is quite unusual amongst people with quite limited English because of that warm humour, because of the good personality, I did find Han very handsome, very attractive person. You're originally from Indonesia, who do you prefer to date and why? At first I didn't expect to date Caucasian men as well, I always think oh, I'm going to go out with Asian men for the rest of my life. YULIANA SUNARTO: Because I thought they look so different than me and I don't understand how their mindset works and then I started to work at this global bank and there's a lot of people from the UK and then at that time I just broke up with my ex-partner and then it's time for a change and I got a lot of attention from them.
