    ye it's a stereotype because it's been around a long ass time and they don't apply to everyone. I can make the same vids with my personal thoughts on any ethnicity doesn't mean it's true for everyone. It's just generalising.

    Especially because the world is so globalised now. Those asian / white relationship stereotypes would have held more wait before we were born but countries are way more mixed now.

    I was made fun of for looking asian l already said that in my other posts.
    right so if youve been made fun of for looking asian then this whole conversation was pointless because it means eurasianwriter was right.

    Well yea those were just his personal accounts as he openly admits it's his personal experiences. The thing is, millions of other half asians have shared his sentiments so idk why you're not but ok. You don't, that's fine, but I'm sure there's some things you and him would agree on lol But I expected you to not agree with the parent thing because, why, you have white/Asian parents and it would only be disgraceful even if it's brutally honest to tell a stranger on a public forum that it might be true about your own parents. I didn't even expect you to respond tbh but I still wanted to share it with ya.

    Because it doesn't apply to my parents? :laugh:

    My mum was from a really rich family and my dad lived with her in the phillipines before they decided to have kids. They had a better life there than in UK. They just came here because it's a better future for me and my sister to be educated in the UK because the degrees are worth more in this country. They're probably going back to the phillipines once I have a job and they can retire.

    My dad never had a problem getting girlfriends. Seen his photos when he was a teenager and he was good looking lol. His mother is racist and hates us though.

    And they're always doing lovey dovey stuff and saying how much they love each other.

    The rest of my mums family are all asian-asian mums n dads.

    Yup quite a bit, people would just randomly call me names and insulting my looks while I'm walking on the street. they'd call me pussy, they'd call me a *****, they'd call me scrawny. I had enough, I fuelled all my anger into the gym. Pain, sweat, tears, all of it, thinking about those moments made me stronger, every time I went in I gave it my all 100%. 18 months later, I was stronger. I was ready. I kept walking down the same street in the off chance I see them again. Then one day, it happened. I saw them just sitting at the bus stop, my heart beating 100x faster, shortness if breath, mental images of those times came flooding into my mind. I didn't forget them and I made damn sure they'd never forget me ever again.

      Started receding pretty early (had longer hair back then though so never noticed until about 18) so had a lot of jokes and comments about that. Can't say i cared though since i got tonnes more women than most of my friends.
