Why Men Prefer to Marry Asian Women

by admin on July 04, 2011
Marrying Asian women

Now it’s no secret that men seem to be attracted to Asian women, but the question still rises, why? Well, a lot of people have been trying to figure that exact question out for quite some time. Even women have started trying to adapt Asian fashion and make-up so that they can bank on this quite obvious attraction men have to the Asian persuasion.

If women are picking up on it and trying to adapt to it then there is a very obvious draw to the Asian women, but again, why? Well, here are a few reasons why men prefer to date or even marry Asian women:

#1. For all cultures an exotic look and feeling is always attractive. Now for non-Asians an Asian woman looks and acts very exotic. This immediately gives off a certain level of attraction. You can look at it like this, an Asian woman would find an American man exotic, a Russian woman may find an Englishman attractive, this is all based on what is exotic to them and their culture.

#2. Now for the obvious reason of uninhibited beauty. Asian women are naturally gorgeous with long black soft hair, smooth skin and petite frames. They move slower and walk in that sensual woman way that drives men nuts! The thing is that they usually don’t intend on doing that, it just kind of happens. American women seem to take more stern strides and have adapted to living in a man’s world, which makes them act somewhat masculine in that way. Asian women have always kept their grace and very feminine ways.

#3. The femininity of the Asian women is incredibly attractive to men. A lot of American women believe that if you are too feminine and take care of your man then you are weak and a smudge on the page of the women’s movement. That cannot be further from the truth! Asian women are NOT weak slaves, but rather very strong and smart they simply know what it means to care for the one you care about.

#4. For whatever reason the Asian women have amazing genetics and they age quite well. This means that you may see a gorgeous woman and think she is in her early twenties when in reality she’s in her mid-thirties! This is a huge attraction for guys because they want to know that after marriage they will still have the beautiful woman they fell for in the first place.

If you are one of the men that finds all these things attractive then you are not alone. But you may be asking where can I find these beautiful Asian women? You may have looked at your local pub or even in the grocery store. Have you had any luck yet? Maybe a nibble here and there but not REALLY what you are looking for.

This is pretty common so again don’t worry. You can find your dream Asian woman, she is out there.

Asian Beauties is a great site to check out if you are looking for Asian mail order brides or just someone for some casual chat.

    Um, I am an asian woman and this is bullshit. Its funny how this article never points out the personality. It just seems like its only about the physical appearance. why? Asian woman are incredibly materialistic and shallow. Like, most women. I would know. And there are plenty of ugly asian girls, trust me. Most of them are average at best. Most of them do NOT look like that picture up above. 

    • Dallas_Guy

      That’s honest. I grew up in SoCal with a large Asian community. I hope I don’t get any American embassies in Asia sacked, but few of my Asian friends’–and girlfriends’–moms were very nice people. I do find many Asian women beautiful and feminine in appearance, with excellent skin that ages well, but beware. The cultural differences are significant, and most American raised guys aren’t prepared.

      All that said, isn’t it pretty obvious that this article is an advertisement?

    • why bother

      Thanks for your honesty. Yes I found my Asian girlfriends and other Asian women in Southern California as very much material girls. So a relationship would not last with them. I am very much a hippie non-materialist but I thrive on capitalism.

      • Jason

        To why bother. Let me get this right. “A hippie non-materialist that thrives on capitalism”. Is that possible?
        Anyway my personal experience with Chinese women is that they are extremely materialistic and look down upon anyone with less money then themselves.Not to mention, not keen on work and love to sleep etc. I won’t marry one again.

        • why bother

          “Hippie non materialist capitalist” yes. Or you may prefer frugal capitalist as my label. I just don’t like to flash money. Too many gold diggers rip off wealthy guys.

  • Janc

    You must be smoking crack. My wife is Asian and she never stops complaining, is status hungry and in general fits the description of what American women are like. Don’t believe the stereotypes.

    • Jan

      I was married to an Asian woman for 9 years and I couldn’t agree more. The thing is, that’s what more feminine means: yes pretty graceful hot and all but also it also means that the bad sides are enhanced too…Nagging, complaining and PMSing LOL

      My new gf is Filipina and is a 1000% improvement

      PS – Like my ex, your wife is from HK right? :)

      • Janc

        She was from India. before and after marriage, 1000% difference. 

    • greggy1001

      I agree with Janc – not all asians are like that. My wife certainly isn’t and neither was her mother (I found out too late). I won’t stand for the s**t her mother handed out to her poor chinese dad, but my wife is still incredibly hard work, stubborn and to put it mildly, an emotional cripple.

      So not all asian women are demure and submissive like the stereotype. Perhaps Japanese women are and some Fillipino women, but not asians of chinese origin. They rule the roost and delight in quarreling with their man.

      Mine’s parents were emigres, left Canton at 15 & 16.

    • Paul

      If she is westernised, your fucked! Thats why i dont want kids, the corrupted media will brain wash them

  • MIKE

    It’s true that American women are not feminine and I don’t find them attractive. Their personalities and their thoughts are sick. Also American women have no idea about making love. They don’t know how to kiss and touch..PERIOD.. All they do is stupid flirts with other men and treat their men like a piece of shit. Well then whoever lives with an American women also a stupid since he accepts this treatment. 

    Also not only Asian women, all the women outside of America is feminine and they have a better understanding about relationship, being a woman, being feminine and being a lover…

    Try and see yourself. But most foreign born wouldn’t like American men when they see them acting “American either. No one needs crap, you know. 

    • LiSyo

      It take a special kind of stupidity to stereotype 150 million American women and then “all the women outside of America.” We’re not toys or dolls or cars off an assembly line.

  • Anonymous

    Asian women aren’t all that.  Very few look anything like the picture.

    The REAL solution is to just not get married at all.  Hook up when the opportunity arises but don’t stay with one girl for more than a year.  

    • David Kentat

      Still it’s a reasonable compromise if you are like 70 and she’s in her 20s and would like and appreciate you as a man and want to start a family with you – all of which white women are simply incapable of doing anymore even though she may be ugly!

  • sisterchristian

    hi my name is annie and im an asian sensation. the thing is not a lot of men like asian women, some are even repelled. i know a bunch of asian men who say stuff like they like white girls or white girls are hot, so there u go. that is the truth, white women are still the bread and butter or whatever u call it.
    u might like ur occasional chinese take out, but u will always go to ur steak and potatoes.

    u have made some correct points though, at my age i can pass off as 18, and if lose 10 lbs i can be younger. i dont mind doing household chores and with the right machines i’ll do it happily.

    i read up on how to give a great blow job, i spend time looking good and smelling good. i have 2 degrees. i speak 4 languages and have been traveling since i was 17.

    the thing you relly need to consider in marriage is in an article here “is ur gf a good wife material” that is really true. it still depends in your compatiblity though. 

    also its not true asian girls dont fight back..we fight back all the time, maybe even more. 

    • Jan

      Your post made me weak in the knees (especially the reading part) for a sec there and I’d love to see what you look like if I weren’t in a relationship. 

      This ties up to what I was saying about more feminine = hotter and prettier and all but also fighting back more…which is fine with me, heck anyone familiar with the term 港女 (“Gong loei or HK Girl”) will know what I mean.

      If you want a submissive asian girl, the japanese are making robots that look more and more like real girls but I’m not sure the blowjob function has been perfected yet and I, for one, will not be one of the test subjects.

      I like asian girls because of the way they look, their hair and faces and the more I see and am with, the more I’m sure of my tastes and I know what I’m speaking of. Call it yellow fever or anything else, hey I like it and I’ve succumbed to it long ago. 

      And I’m a guilo in Hong Kong !

  • sisterchristian

    as an asian woman i am repulsed by these comments below..really dont believe asian women dont nag or whine YES WE DO, my only beef is that men flirting and looking, i hate that. everything else is kosher. with regards to money, i can budget. i hate living above means.

    just marry someone who u think has great compatibility with you, in sex and stuff. someone ur attracted to. dont pigeonhole urself into getting it on w/ an asian girl just cause she can be ur sex object. 

  • Guest

    Some white men may find Asian women to be substantially less attractive aesthetically than their white counterparts.  Some Asian women can also be *more*, not less aggressive than their white counterparts, as well…have personally seen this in action.

  • John

    My brother married a Chinese woman some years ago. She is the laziest person I have ever met and I’ve travelled extensively. She is ignorant, loud, rude, childish, always putting my brother down in public, creates tension and embarassment wherever she goes, has terrible social skills, never learns from her mistakes, has only one friend in this country and that friend is a criminal, doesn’t understand ethics of any kind or seem to be possessed of any ethics….

    However, she is very pretty and a good cook.

    • David Kentat

      lol you hit the nail on the head! …and that’s where the white woman fails!!! “pretty and good cook!” and possibly a family person I’d add as opposed to a self-centred bit**!

    • Jason

      Yep. That sounds like my ex-chinese wife. Cultural.

  • Tom95

    yeah, asian women are hot for a minute but in truth they age the worse!

    White Women Don’t Cut Off Men’s Privates

    “Thanks to Kieu Becker and her penis-severing, garbage disposal-grinding ways, I have to make a list about 9 instances of men’s penises getting chopped off and the circumstances under which it occurred. If I don’t list the reason for the attack, it was anger over being cheated on. I didn’t want to be repetitive. As you go down the list, realize that if you are planning on cheating on your wife, don’t pick an older Chinese woman. Because she WILL cut your penis off if she finds out. Which is weird, because it’s a chopstick culture. Huh.”

      Well, once upon time in 1993, there was this couple named John and Lorena Bobbit…

      • Jesus Christ Saves

        Loreena Gallo Bobbitt is hispanic.

      • Jesus Christ Saves

        It’s common practice in East Asia. But not in the West.

    • why bother

      Like Sean said, Lorena Bobbit is white. She was the first in the headlines to do this. Two years ago two Or three women in the U.S. mispdwest glued a man’s private to his belly. All former girlfriends. Midwest, so most likely white women.

      Jodi Arias in Phoenix supposedly shot and repeatedly stabbed her lover while he was in the shower. Not Asian.

      In any case, the lesson seems to be saying: never sleep with your girlfriend. Have your midnight rendezvous then go home to your place with your key and never give her your key.

  • Ex-wife

    My ex-husband’s girlfriend is Filipina and extremely insecure. Yes, she is pretty and thin, and she brags that she gives him sex five times a day. But she gets crazy jealous at the least provocation. I had to tell her repeatedly that I didn’t want him anymore!
    But she’d resort to violence against him, calling the police on him when he hadn’t done anything to her, or just screaming at him for hours on end for the least little thing.

    • Dallas_Guy

      That’s the Latin.

    • Eric

      Violence against him? I’ve read similar comments a couple of times, but I just don’t get it. How would a man let a woman physically attack him? How would a woman dare to do that? Domestic violence is a bad thing and a man should not beat a woman, but you can’t let a woman beat you?? I don’t understand how this can happen.

  • Mendoza

    Asian women aren’t big horses and huge bony faces and hands like the big fat american women, and they don’t have the snappy fingers and attitudes either (unless they’ve been americanized).

  • ifthetruthhurtsthansuckitup

    Why would i want an Asian women??? As soon as they come to American and hang around with American women that Asian beauty will change fast adn she will be just like the American women aka bitching, complaining, giving you excuses not to have sex with you and thelist goes on. So do I want an Asian Women, not at all…only for a short relationship as soon as ask for a green card, I will break up with her.

    • Alex

      I personaly think the Western women are a better person(in general) then the Chinese women. Certainly easier to live with.

  • peter

    The above story is crap. Get the stars out of your eyes and hang around the type of people you are inerested in. Me, I like Asian women, but the main thing is to get into a situation that is going to work for you and the other person. Good luck to all.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002478681658 Sean Millon

    Haha, the comments from all the super-serious people are as entertaining as the article itself. Of course it’s bullshit, it’s a blatant advertisement for a dating website.

    Though I will admit, dating an Asian woman who is actually from a Pacific Rim country can be very refreshing if the right woman is found. Just being able to talk to a someone who wasn’t preprogrammed by feminism, and therefore can think for herself, is liberating in its own right.

  • JoJo

    If only white women felt the same way towards asian men…the I guess the chain goes, black men go after white women, white men go after asian women, asian men gets dominated by black women…

    • Jenny Rietta

      Not to be rude, but Black women aren’t dominating Asian men. Most Black women don’t date out of their race because we know how other races feel about us and generalize us all based on the hoodrat hoochies they have seen on television. I know a lot of BW who think AM are very cute.

  • TrueBeautyInnerBeauty

    This is so offensive! I mean, not only is everyone branding stereotypes here but the fact that you’re all so judgemental is crazy! Asian people are exactly like everyone else in the world, they still have feelings and PMS and emotions because that’s part of the deal of being a HUMAN. Why would you want someone who is totally submissive? That’s no relationship. I understand that not all Asian women are nice but hey, neither are all Americans or English. Every race has certain individuals who aren’t attractive. But you shouldn’t be defined by your race – you should be defined by your personality. Heck, who cares about how they flipping AGE? If you marry one of them and are too superficial to see beyond the exterior of a person – it just proves how shallow you are. I’m sorry for the rant but I’m so proud to be Asian and you cannot judge others without giving them a chance. It would be like me saying all Americans are obese, dumb or psychotic. You can’t generalise here, whether it’s positive or negative. It really does depend on the individual.

    • Bill

      No. Impossible.They are not the same as everyone else in the world. The culture permeates their personality and then they have their own individual traits. This also applies to any culture including my own.
      As you have pointed out that it is not correct to say that all Americans are obese however it is also becomming a cultural trait for this to eventuate.
      They will have their individual traits as well as the cultural traits.

  • AkuAndoryū Tru-Dru Harrison

    I thought that according to the world Black Women were considered unattractive, undesirable, and not worthy of Marriage so why don’t we be Technical– if that was the case why are so many Western Men chasing down Asian Women to buy for Marriage? or Selecting Asian Women to be with? I bet many of you all don’t even have a Clue of where the Aboriginal Asians come from. After 400 Years of Oppressing A Nation they still cannot resist the beautiful Africans that now are the Asians (Orientals such as Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, etc) are the same Africans that were despised by the slavemasters..it is time to accept the true greatness that is a Black Woman go to this link: http://www.trinicenter.com/FirstChinese.htm remember the Chinese are the first Asians, and the other Asians such as Japanese, Vietnamese, etc are descended from them. So to the Western Men that cannot resist the best of the best thanks for proving the slavemasters wrong about who is superior, and loving our women. I’ am not ashamed to say that I love any women, or people of any colour because Racism is ridiculous. It is not wrong for anyone to love anyone of different backgrounds. Bless up, and thanks for helping to repopulate the Alkebulan nation!

    • Jenny Rietta

      Don’t spam the white guy into liking Black Women. They have already generalized us all as “desperate and unfeminine”. I gave up on white men a long time ago after reading the racist garbage views about Black women on the internet.

      Let them date Asian girls. Btw Asian women are very pretty and sweet. Just remember to love the person you are with for who they are not what race they are! Take Care!

      • Andrewmag166

        Well don’t generalize, I actually dated a great black lady, I very much loved her. She was separated and hiding from her Puerto Rican cop husband who probably would have killed me, she was fitting me in while her black boyfriend was in other states she was straight with me though. She was a great lady but she wouldn’t commit to me till I left, then she’s calling come back we will live together. I think many black women are beautiful, then there’s the whole slave issue, only a few whites owned slaves, I sure wasn’t alive then but I have to feel guilty. Does this black women hate me and want to knock me out? There’s a lot less baggage with asian women they are positive toward white men and it makes it easy for us to find one we want. I married the Asian lady I love.

      • kenyanna

        Did you ever think of dating white European men instead of Americans? I am married to a wonderful blue-eyed German, I am African. But like its been mentioned severally, it’s all about compatibility.

  • Jamie

    I am Jamie from UK. I am an International contractor that deals with the construction of roads and bridges. I am new into this dating site stuffs, am looking for a nice asian woman i will love forever because i am a man that knows how to make a woman smile.

    I believe in long distance relationship because it needs a lot of strength and courage. With due respect, i will like you to write to me through my email so that we can start expressing our feelings together. My id is (jamie.smith147@yahoo.com)

    Thanks and hope to hear from you.

    Love from Jamie

  • LiSho

    In other words, they don’t want to put up with the realities that women have to age and will value her less if she starts looking old or less attractive. The fact that the majority of things here were about attraction really only tells us that the man who wrote it is just looking for a live in sex doll and doesn’t really value the qualities necessary for a relationship. Or he’s incredibly young and doesn’t even KNOW the qualities necessary for a relationship. According to this author, all you need to have a successful marriage is a youthful LOOKING, exotic LOOKING, feminine LOOKING woman. Rather shallow, and doomed to fail.

  • Sally
  • why bother

    I have a craving for Asian women and dated a few of course. Their looks and intelligence are attractive. But I also read that after a certain age, like 50, they get old looking fast. Read that if you want a woman who stays beautiful longest, a part black, part white woman is what you need.

  • Darren

    I think the people need to go beyond the exterior and take time to see if they could live with one of them. I could not and i would be one of the easy going Western male’s, so i have been told.
    Too much hard work or as they say “high matainence”.
    If only the personality matched the looks.

  • andy

    they are not pretty! come on!! flat noses..flat boobs! flat butts! thats why they keep their bodies!! because they have nothing !!!

  • Andrewmag166

    As a white man married to an Asian, I can’t believe how much ignorance is around this issue. I married my wife because I love her. There are many beautiful women of all races so it’s not appearance. for me Asians from Asia are much more positive toward white men, white women and black women hate white men and blame us for everything that ever went wrong in the history of the world and just waiting to blame us for anything wrong in their life. Asian women value intelligence education hard work. Where western women want a thug gangsta, so I’m much more compatible with Asian women on values.

  • Guest

    That photo looks nothing like a natural Asian woman. That’s the result of plastic surgery, to look younger and more Western. They call it the Bagel Girl look.

    Ba = baby face (Strangely enough, a Western baby face. Not an Eastern baby face.)

    Gel = glamour (Strangely enough, a Western body with big boobs, big hips and long legs. Not an Eastern body with small boobs, wide waist, small hips and short legs.)

    BaGel Girl. The Far East has a Lolita complex that is taboo to the West. Watch out for the Japanese perverts targeting White women who visit Japan.

    Desire for Flawless and Light-Colored Skin Drives the Skin Lighteners Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.
    PRWeb

    Skin lightening is a relatively smaller market in the West when compared to Asia. In the West, Skin Lighteners are primarily marketed as anti-aging products that are intended to deliver benefits such as reduction of freckles and spots. In countries such as the US and the UK, rising demand for skin whiteners is attributed to the increase in immigration and the resulting expansion in the base of ethnic groups.

    As stated by the new market research report on Skin Lighteners, Japan represents the largest market worldwide. Consumers in Japan, especially women, are known to spend more on skin lightening products than women in other countries.

    Yearning for Lightness

    Ashikari finds through observations of 777 women at several sites in Osaka during 1996-1997 that 97.4 percent of women in public wore what she calls “white face,” that is, makeup that “makes their faces look whiter than they really are.”

    A perusal of displays of Japanese cosmetics and skin care products shows that most, even those not explicitly stated to be whitening products, carry names that contain the word “white,” for example, facial masks labeled “Clear Turn White” or “Pure White.”

    The fierce Samurai warriors of Japan feared no-one and lived in the hope of dying as heroes in battle.

    But in the end they were done for by… make-up.

    Tamiji Nakashima of Japan’s University of Occupational and Environmental Health studied the bones of Samurai children and adults to discover their cause of death.

    Based on chemical and X-ray analysis, the bones of the children in the study contained levels of lead dozens of times higher than both the male and female adults, the researchers told Germany‘s Der Spiegel magazine.

    White facial powder used by the women was the cause. ‘During the Edo period, cosmetics became popular and the vogue was usually introduced by actors, courtesans and geisha, through prints and popular literature, and by beauticians who helped establish fashions,’ the researchers said.

    ‘The white face powders used in those days were made from mercury chloride and white lead. Lead levels in the bones of adult women were roughly double those of men in the study.

    ‘And their breast milk was likely highly-contaminated, leading to the very severe lead levels in the youngest children.

    ‘The high lead concentrations in the samurai children of the Edo period may have left them intellectually incapable of dealing with the final political crisis between 1853–1867, resulting in the downfall of the Shogunate.’

    Dr. Nakashima’s team studied the bones of children who lived as far back as 400 years ago during Japan’s Edo period, when the country was ruled by a series of shoguns who presided over a feudal system upheld by the Samurai caste.

    With global lead pollution much lower before the beginning of the industrial revolution, Dr. Nakashima’s researchers surmised that the contamination must have been caused by the make-up worn by women of the Samurai caste.

    His study showed that the women of the era had far higher levels of lead in their bones than men, and this contamination was passed on to youngsters while nursing.

    ‘We assume that facial cosmetics were one of the main sources of lead exposure among the samurai class because they were luxuries at that time,’ Dr. Nakashima told LiveScience.

    ‘The lower class people (farmers and fishermen) did not have the luxury of using cosmetics and the laws strictly prohibited [them] from using cosmetics because they were workers.’

    Kabuki Makeup
    by Fuyu

    My sensei (kabuki dance) trained with professional kabuki performers in Tokyo and uses the same makeup which she has taught her students to use.

    Kabuki makeup is surprisingly durable and I have performed in very hot weather with my face dripping and the makeup remained unmoved.

    Unlike Geisha makeup, Kabuki makeup should go right to the hairline with no bare skin showing. Be sure to cover the ears, neck, and shoulders (a little further than the kimono will be showing). Also, in kabuki, all bare flesh is white, so you will need to do your arms and hands. If you are doing a male part, the legs and feet will need to be white, as well. I recommend doing the hands last when everything else is already applied.

    Political Cosmetics: KOREAN Skin Bleaching
    by Luigina Webb

    99% of Korean moisturisers appear to contain some kind of whitening agent. Without even noticing (much) my skin color has CHANGED (slightly) FREAKISHLY.

    Clearly, the skin pigment has changed SOMEHOW due to skin bleaching chemicals in the face-wash or moisturisers that are being sold in Korea. I almost look TRANSPARENT. AND YES, I do in fact check the labels on products I buy (mostly).

    There are really not that many varying shades if you want to buy cosmetics in Korea, and most brands only stock two colors (if that); WHITE, and WHITER (not kidding).

    Skin Whitening in Asia
    To Asia Travel & Leisure Magazine

    If you want to buy some body lotion, for females or men, you’re going to find it very difficult to get one that doesn’t have some form of whitening agent in it and that’s even in all the local 7/11 stores. I was once looking for some facial cream similar to Nivea to sooth on my face after shaving. Sure I found some and after applying it after my morning shave I looked in the mirror and instead of the tanned skin I had before after some serious beach relaxing, wham… Casper the friendly ghost was looking at me in the mirror! My face had a pale look of artificial white that made me look like I was at deaths door. Sure enough after inspecting the normal looking small blue Nivea tub, for all to see written on the side was the added ingredient and guaranteed whitening affect statement.

    Luckily I don’t think this was a particularly strong formula as it washed off as soon as I cleaned my face with normal soap, phew…

    The following day I went back to the same 7/11 store to see if there were any other similar creams without any whitening agent in them, but no, all had this in them and it was not until I found some in a pharmacy that I could eventually feel comfortable in applying cream to my face after shaving.

    The Great White Pressure
    Dawn

    I’m in Singapore with a friend of mine – a 38-year-old Philippino man. Yesterday we decided to go shopping in a vast shopping area called Orchard Road.

    We decide to go shopping in one of the many malls. I needed some toothpaste so went into a sort of chemist / make up / toiletries shop run by Philippino women.

    As I browsed the shop we noticed everything – body lotions, face creams, face washes, hair removers, even toilet roll – had skin whitening ingredients in them.

    Shelves were stacked with armpit and bikini lightening cream.

    The Dark Side Of Skin-Whitening Cream
    The Guardian

    In Thailand most TV ads show men and women who are abnormally and quite blatantly touched-up to look lighter.

    In most places in Thailand, I couldn’t actually buy facial products for men without skin-whitening agents.

    I’m living in Vietnam, and it is nearly impossible to find moisturizers, deodorants, shower gel or make-up without skin whiteners. It is so expected that you would want to whiten your skin that there isn’t really an option not to.

    DiosaBellissima:

    As far as BB cream, I’ve yet to find anything I’m wowed by. Maybe I’ll try the Missha kind– does it have skin whiteners in it? I know that’s the big issue with ordering Asian BB creams, that they tend to have hidden bleach products in ‘em.

    Ripoff Report Complaint Review: ChnLove.com
    Reported By: Mark — Niwot, Colorado, USA

    China Love dating agency.
    Fake letters, fake photos and fake correspondence.
    Over three months time, they conned me for over a thousand dollars.

    I spent three months in contact with what I thought was a Chinese woman that was seriously interested in me. Over that time, I noticed inconsistencies in the stories and letters. I also saw photos of the woman over that time, transformed from a beautiful woman that looked half her age, into an unattractive, frumpy, middle-aged, overweight woman. It became obvious to me, that I had been swindled and they had pulled a bait and switch. The experience cost me in excess of 1000 dollars, before I figured it out and pulled the plug.

    I later went to China on other business and met the lady. While there, I visited with the woman for a full day and have since had email conversations with her.

    I got the entire truth. This is what I know as fact and can prove with photos, documents and letters.

    The matching agencies use Chnlove.com as an umbrella/shield to present their stable of women to the gullible public.

    The women do not write to you and your letters are not being read by the ladies. You are talking, flirting and falling in love and discussing your deepest secrets with a translator who is trained on how to pull the heart strings of a love sick western man. I don’t want to make you puke, but there is a good chance that she is a he and has a hairy chest and a pot belly. The lady who they are representing has very little knowledge of the correspondence between you and the agency. But they are aware of the tactics and dishonesty that are taking place on their behalf.

    They (translator) discourage direct communications of any kind, as it will end their revenue stream generated by translating letters between the two of you. Some excuses you may hear are: “I don’t have a computer”, “I am not computer literate”, “I can’t afford a cell phone or we could talk”, “My English is terrible and I feel much more comfortable using the agencies’ translators for our communications”. You will hear many stories and excuses that directly contradict each other.

    Let me say this, computers are very accessible to everyone in China. You can go to an internet cafe and use the computer for an hour for 5 RMB (that’s less than a buck). Most everyone under 50 years old is computer literate. The computer game QQ Farm is a national pastime in China. And can’t afford a cell phone. What a load of crap. You can’t sling a dead cat in China, without hitting someone trying to sell you a used/stolen cell phone for pennies on the dollar. I once saw a decrepit old man riding a cart pulled by a water buffalo, while talking on his cell phone.

    The photos. My god the photos. You have never see such beautiful women in your life. Only trouble is, they are fake. fake. fake. They start with a professional photo session, with tons of makeup and then they photoshop the image into someone that you would not recognize if she were staring you in the face. When you finally realize this beautiful, young woman is pushing 40-50 years old and can’t possibly look this good, you ask for more everyday “normal” photos. Well, they knew you would ask and they have those waiting for you, prepared in advance just for you. And heavily photoshopped.

    Don’t think that you can outsmart them or detect a scam from the real thing. They have thought of everything and know their business. No slur intended, but the Chinese have had thousands of years of practice separating you from your money.

    I strongly advise you to stay away from Chinese marriage agencies that use this marketing technique. They are nothing more than organized crime with a very good store front.

    Asianbeauties is a massive scam. I can’t believe I was so naïve and carried on paying their credits. I joined 6 months ago and spent over 3500 dollars…Yes I know, I’m such a fool. They are taking advantage of honest guys looking for a serious relation with an Asian girl. A few months ago I chatted with a girl who’s profile was very attractive, she was very nice and we had a great contact. I spent a fortune chatting with her until she admitted she could no longer do this to me…She admitted she was not the lady on the pictures but just an interpreter forced by her agency to chat with guys in order to make them spent money. She said she couldn’t do it anymore because I was such a nice guy and she was such ashamed. We managed to exchange email during this last chat (which I can’t explain because there is always someone spying your chat to be sure you don’t exchange personal details) so she sent me a mail with her picture and telling me she was falling for me…This picture was far away from the sexy lady I was chatting with. An ugly middle-aged Chinese woman! I complained to the site, they said they were taking the case seriously and came back to me saying the lady really exist and that I had nothing to complain about. Bunch of crooks!

    I decided I was just not lucky. So I bought some more credits and guess what, it happened again! Exactly the same thing! “Oh you’r such a nice guy, I have to admit….I’m not the lady but the translator, but I have a profile on the site if you want to check….And yes I checked! Again an older fat ugly Lady! That’s another couple hundred dollars gone!

    I don’t know why it took me so long to realize, but I tell you guys all the profile pictures are fake, studio pictures and totally modified. Absolutely nothing to do with the lady herself. Even the 40 year old ladies look like they are 20! I asked all the ladies I was communicating by letter to send me a natural picture, a picture of them in reality, the way they are. Not a single one looked like the lady on the profile. All ugly, I mean really ugly.

    There is one of them for who I spent a fortune because again we had a great contact. She sent me an “ok”picture of her but not really clear. She said it’s all she had. So I decided to order a call (100 credits plus 10 credits/minute!) I spent around 40 minutes on the ph0ne with an interpreter who’s English was less than my Chinese! In that time she has not even been able to translate my ph0ne number or communicate my email to the lady! I asked her contact details, again all I can hear from far away is 2 ladies speaking Chinese! And the line was so bad with echoes and cuts between sentences, a real headache! At the end nothing! A real waste of time and money. I complained again and the customer service lady said she was going to find out what happened and ask the lady’s agency for her ph0ne number. They came back with a fake number in China. As I still had a few credits left , right after this complete farce I chatted with her to ask what had happened. There she had connected her cam so I paid the 2 credits per minute to see, and guess what again, she was not even close to the picture she sent me with her letter. Again an horrible overweight lady full of pimples with an ugly fat nose and greasy hair. I ask her what she had in mind and told her what I thought about her. She told me that it was a picture from when she was in high school and asked me if I still liked her!!

    Guys, please spread this on every forum you can, we can’t let these crooks act like this. This is a big big scam.

    DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT SUBSCRIBING TO ASIAN BEAUTIES, IT’S A MASSIVE HUGE CLEVER AND WELL ORGANISED SCAM!!

    NO! the reason is Asian WOMEN need US Visa or Green card so they trick American men to marry.,…….simple as it should be ..hahaaaaa

  • I am an Asian woman

    …I also think this is an advertisement. People are the same all over the world, every race has their hot people, ugly people and average people. And obviously if our exposure to a race or culture is only from one source either through personal experience or the media or etc.. we are going to paint that race or culture with whatever experience we were exposed to.
