    Wow, racial stereotypes AND evaluating women only in terms of their ability to be a "good" sexual partner. A+ great thread.

    As for the original question, no ethnicity has a homogenous personality, that's insane. East Asian women do not all have similar personalities, so making statements about them being "well mannered" or "mysterious" or "slutty" (congratulations, casual racism and sexism in two syllables, you win the "concise bigot" award) is...wrong. And even if all East Asian women DID have similar personalities - and we've already established that they don't - then different people find different personality traits attractive; "men" are not one homogenous mass either, and broad statements about what men do/don't like are misguided.
    Well no, but there are legitimate broad statements. For example, "Americans are more loud and brash than Chinese people". I'm sure there are plenty of loud Chinese people, and plenty of shy and introverted Americans, but as a group overall, you can clearly see a difference in the way they carry themselves. I don't think many people belief Chinese people are ethnically programmed to act in a more reserved manner, rather it comes from their cultural background- Confuscious and all that.

    What is it about oriental womens personalities that is so attractive to men?

    Do they give them the distance and space a guy needs?

    I have been told its something to do with their culture...
    Statistically, a guy with an oriental gf/wife has a better chance of having a partner who is shorter than he is.
    Perhaps insecure men find this appealing?
