Q: Do foreign women also get "Yellow Fever"?

A lot is said about foreign men with Yellow Fever who come to Asia just to find women. But I have met one or two foreign women who were equally obsessed about finding a Chinese boyfriend. Therefore, it's not really fair to portray Yellow Fever as something only foreign men suffer from. As a matter of interest, do an of you know foreign women with yellow fever?

im not sure about that, but if someone did travel half way across the world just to find a chinese gf, id say thats quiet desperate, i mean you can find chinese girls back at home, or maybe their is a different motive for choosing girls in china

Hmm. Although I don't totally condone the use of the term "yellow fever" (which I believe is usually just the acceptance of Asian partners, perceived as abnormal by people that don't accept Asian partners for whatever reason), I think the answer to your question is yes, foreign women get "yellow fever" too. It's just not as common, again for whatever reason.

 

I've also noticed foreign women with the so-called fever tend to be more interested in Chinese culture and language in general, and are less likely to be accused of purely sexual interest.

I've seen women who hook up with Chinese guys...but it certainly doesn't seem to be at the level that it is for guys who hook up with Chinese girls.

 

Personally I think the whole "yellow fever" thing is simply nothing more than the fact that guys are normally very horny. put them around nothing but asian girls and suddenly they will be attracted to asian girls.......  put a guy around nothing but women over the age of 50 and I bet you'd see guys getting "old women fever" as well Smile.  Basically, guys seem to end up getting physically attracted to whatever they have access to....... hell i've seen plenty of prison documentaries/tv shows where guys say they aren't gay but bang other guys just because thats all there is.

I rather cringe at the term "Yellow Fever" or "Jungle Fever" or any other variant of it, as for me I find it disrespectful towards the couple.

 

Having said that,  and in answer to your question, yes, I do know of many girls in the US who find Asian men attractive. They like the slim build, the eyes, etc.

Yes but......the western women in China are far far pickier than western dudes.

There is a big difference between a second or third generation Chinese man from the west and a born and raised Chinese man (I will not generalize but ya'll know what I mean...and it's not what you are thinking).

I don't dispute it happens but think about the percentage compared to men here.

I think there are plenty of girls all over the world attracted to Asian guys. However, there are more obstacles to dating one. Women are less likely to move to Asia, even for teaching, than men. Asian guys are less likely to ask a non-Asian girl on a date, and I think a lot of girls expect a guy to make the first move.  Add in the fact that outside of large cities, Asian populations are rather low in many Western countries. I think the main reason that you don't see many non-Asian women with Asian men is that there are less opportunities. Besides, in China specifically, there are also cultural reasons, combined with the fact that parents want their children to date Chinese girls, that tend to block such a relationship. It's frustrating.

First post, woop!!

YES --- and I am one of them. It's gotten so bad, like to the point that I'm not even attracted to foreign guys anymore, all I have eyes for are Asian boys. And I'm quite open about my unbridled lust.  

 

Most people are totally surprised to find a foreign girl who is not just open to dating Asians but one who wants to bone only Asians. Thankfully for me, their lust is reciprocated with the same intensity. I've had more sex with more Chinese boys this year than I've ever had in my life.

There's so much jealousy in your comments. How come she prefers Chinese men to us with our 40 inches?!

She can choose anyone she wants & have as many partners as she pleases.

I'm sure, she knows what she's doing.

Besides, it's not the length that counts but the technique.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
