If we’re being honest here, I was one of these girls at one point.

From the ages of 17 to 20, I was only interested in white guys.

So here are some of the most obvious online dating "flags" I suggest you use to steer clear of players and time-wasters: 1. Beware if he sends you a "wink" or a "smile" instead of a properly written e-mail.

I guarantee that the man who will ultimately want to marry you will not send you a "wink." Please don't be fooled into thinking he's "shy" or just intimidated by your fabulousness.

I felt like I was sort of “upgrading” in a way by moving away from my heritage. Adam and I have been dating for over a year, and I’ve learned that we are very much alike.

I felt proud that I was more white-washed than all my other Asian friends. Although we grew up with some very different traditions (my Chinese/Vietnamese heritage and his Canadian/Jewish heritage), we pretty much went through the same circumstances as Canadian children.See if your online dating site allows you to set your preferences to block winks, so that you won't be tempted down this time-wasting path. Subject bars that go "Hmmmmmmm....." You do not want to date Mr. If you're having trouble understanding why "Hmmmm" is problematic, then try this exercise.Start imagining yourself as your favorite, sexiest, most desirable celebrity -- Angelina, Beyonce, Gisele, etc.I love him for who he is, not for the colour of his skin. if you liked this post, you might like this post on awkward phases I had as a Toronto kid.And I definitely don’t see him as a white guy – I just see him as my 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.
