Since my buddies kicked off this website, I’ve been more observant of SAM culture. This week I had a realization that I’d like to share. On Tuesday a female co-worker and I were joking about marriage. Then she asked me if I only wanted to marry a “nice Asian woman.” Her words. I said “not necessarily” because for me compatibility ranks much higher than race on my list of priorities.Funny thing is, it’s the second time a Caucasian woman has asked me that recently. Two months ago at a friend’s website company party, an Italian American woman asked me exactly the same thing. The last Asian guy she dated had broken things up because he had to marry Korean. I think we all know guys like this, even within our friends.
The realization: some women will assume that all Asian guys think like that. The unfortunate effect of this is that one SAM’s actions could kill my game. Previously I didn’t concern myself with the fact that some women I meet might make the assumption that I date “Asians only.” Now I know that it’s a common assumption, an urban myth about some Asian males.
It’s not a major problem though, the best solution is still to talk to the woman you are interested in and signal that you like her in a clear way. I’d love to take a poll of a 100 Caucasian women and see what they say. Any of you guys know what I’m talking about? – Elk SAM
