Dating a non christian guy
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.
Our father-daughter relationship was more like a typical father-son relationship. I was also a dancer and heavily involved in the performing arts which attracts a wide variety of characters.
I don’t ever feel racialized or stereotyped around Adam or his friends (I’ve read quite a few articles with other girls claiming this) – but that could just be because Toronto is such a multicultural place, and our generation is much more accepting than the generation before us.
I had a lot of attention growing up being the baby and all, but my main source of affection came from my Dad.
