Would you date a "white-washed" asian?

Updates:
for those who don't know,

"A derogatory term used to describe a minority who has assimilated with western society. The "White washed" person does not necessarily abandon his/her own culture but rather embrace others beside his/her own. Some people take it as a compliment while others take it as an insult. "

-according to urban dictionary lol

  • Yes I would. It's just very unlikely I'll see eye to eye with her depending on how she became "white-washed". If she's a self hater, goodbye. If she grew up listening to the same music I do, ate the same food I ate, and watched the same shows I watched, we could have a LOT in common and that would be awesome.

  • Get what you mean. Most White washed Asians actually dotn seem to value their oriental roots, so they r a definite NO NO! But ther are some who grow up in a more westernized society but have respect for the traditions and cultures which they came from, they r a definete YES! so its Yes & No. Ultimatly depends after studing the person for a few days or within time spent together. after all it won't be fair to judge the book by its cover?

    • I'm that person thanks for your kind words!

    • welcome!

  • No, only because I don't like the look of most Asian women. Funny thing is both my parents are Thai and people say I look mixed.

    And you're taking what urban dictionary says seriously?

    • i guess because of you're own culture (guessing you've grown up in a northamerican country)

    • The more separated your expectations are about roles or expectations or how you think the other is supposed to behave or react the more careful you have to be to avoid misunderstandings based on those different expectations.

      Those can be overcome often by discussion but so many things we normally just don't think to discuss.

      With regard to dating, different cultures have different expectations about who pays, how serious dating is, how soon and how physical to be, who initiates, what they expect the other to do to indicate desire versus rejection etc.

    • wow really insightful, i'll be keeping that in mind
      thanks for the comments.

  • No, I would not.

  • You mean someone who is westernized? Yes. I find Asian girls are very mysteries and they have beautiful smiles.

    • yeah "westernized," and okay cool

  • Why is western culture synonymous with being white? I am Hispanic and think the term white-washed is ridiculous.

    • oh just a word (i thought) more people would understand. Likely because "western" used to refer to the people who first settled in the West, and they were white.
      or maybe my history sucks.
      but fair, "westernized Asian," but that sounds ridiculous too lol

    • to clarify that doesn't mean she should forsake or be ashamed of her culture, her culture is of course a big part of her and shouldn't be forgotten. But just follow the mainstream and societal norms of the country you are in, that's all i'm saying.

    • nope i meant it as in grew up in a more western culture, i dont know why it says "derogatory" since usually its not offensive

    • I agree completely with what you said.

  • I don't know what you mean by white washed but if you mean would i date a white Asian yes I would.
