For the Asian girls out there, what gives?
So there's this Asian (Chinese to be more specific) girl who I've been hitting it off with online. When I told her that I thought she was adorable (her smile is so cute! ^_^) she was a bit upset, because apparently she thinks that cute = immature.
Oh well, mistake on my part?
She's very attractive, and I thought that would be a harmless comment, but apparently not. Having not dated Asian girls before, my question is really for Asian girls specifically. Personally, I don't like this whole "yellow fever" phrase, as I don't call any Asian girl who likes me having "white fever". (I'm white.)
More specifically, do Asian girls dislike being called cute? How about just not mentioning their looks at all, lest you think the white guy is into you for a fetish? She seems like an interesting girl (classic Asian overachiever), but I don't want to scare her away and give her the wrong impression that I'm dating her solely on the basis of her being an asian.
Yes, she's cute and all, but that's the only the reason why I picked her out.
So Asian ladies, your thoughts?

Asian women are stereotypically seen as small, petite, childlike, adorable, or innocent. No woman wants to be seen as childlike. Call her something more womanly like sexy, beautiful, etc. Make her feel like a grown woman by her compliments because so much of society paints her with a childlike brush.1
