I don’t need to see all the dating statistics to be convinced that Asian men have it worst when it comes to dating. I have more than enough evidence from experience, living in Australia for the past 16 years as an Asian man.

The fact is plain and simple. We are stereotyped, perceived as lower status and less desirable by all women — yes, including Asian women. This phenomenon is so ubiquitous that Columbia University was able to put a dollar figure on the attractiveness gap between Asian and White men. With all other factors normalized (e.g. physical attractiveness), an Asian man would have to earn an additional $247,000 (USD) to stand on equal footing with his White counterpart.
