I am a 20-year-old 6'3" Asian-American male (yes, that's rare) and I have seriously considered moving out of the nation to date after I graduate college. I feel like I'm being left out of the dating game due to my race and I feel that I must leave the United States to find love. The reason why is because of the media and it's portrayals of us in Hollywood and the fact that I live in Alabama where there's hardly any Asian-Americans (I was born in NY, just come here for college). Would it be a good idea to move out of the nation just so I could experience less of the stereotypes (yes, Nazis are everywhere, just more here)? Or should I stay if are there any other places in my own home country that are more accepting of me?

if you are in college, why not try studying abroad, not to generalize but your Asian so you might just have good grades and I'm sure your school paying for you to study abroad wouldn't be a problem :P , but for an alternative , well yea...obviously , get out of alabama, I'm sure if you tried really hard you could find corners and niches throughout your town or college community where there are girls that you could mesh with on a romantic level, like you said you came there for college , as do other people so prob a pretty broad spectrum of people if you look a little harder
but hey, why not try moving up north , or out west, la, nyc, dc, if you have checked out youtube lately, the up and coming stars and who appear to be the biggest heart throbs are all Asian americans ( kevjumba, nigahiga, timothy delaghetto,)
so in conclusion, either just try a little harder and maybe take a more optimistic approach to your surroundings, or hey head somewhere else or abroad, what have you got to lose?
im a white male, a fairly masculine white male, but my artsy side tells me I would have a hard time finding girls I could connect with in alabama as well, but I'm sure if you looked hard enough you could find some
