These are some things your Latino family needs to understand about the white boy you're dating, despite what a hassle they can be to clarify: I have no clue where this idea comes from, but most old-school Hispanics still think all white people are rich.They suppose white guys are all heirs to multinational companies, and get excited thinking their daughter might marry into a rich family.So here’s my personal story: First off, before I met my wife, I was well on my way to becoming a confirmed bachelor. I never had a problem meeting people and was quite social and was always hosting events. Upon arriving at the venue, I said my hellos and was introduced to a woman named Linda. I know it sounds cheesy, but for me, it felt like she was the only person in the room.I learned that she grew up in Seoul, graduated from the Art Center and had just landed a creative director position at an agency.Let me put it bluntly: When it comes to dating, it sucks to be an Asian male in the US.I’ll share my personal experience in a bit, but first, let’s look at the science behind it all…After crunching the behavioral data gathered from 25 million users, Ok Cupid found that Asian guys have it the worst when it comes to online dating.It's so hard to explain to your family that your very white boyfriend also had to worry about getting a student loan.It's also challenging for them to fathom the idea he might not have a six-figure salary. We might all know this, but try explaining that to an older generation Hispanic. It's cultural, and sometimes, it can come across as rude if you're not used to it.
In fact, I’d like to think that I’ve kinda cracked the code. One fateful evening, I was attending an Oscar-viewing fundraiser with my friend Teddy Zee, who happens to be the producer of the matchmaking movie called HITCH.
Most Asian guys, like me, will struggle to get matches and right swipes on dating apps. Because society is conditioned to think of Asian guys as nerdy sidekicks, NOT the guys you’d want to date.(I know, I know, Crazy Rich Asians just came out.
That’s a step in the right direction, but it’s not enough). )In fact, Linda and I believe so strongly in the power of introductions, we created an #antidatingapp called M8 where your friends are part of the magic.
If you’re already happily attached, then here’s your chance to play matchmaker, and help your friends reach their happily ever after.
I come from the most Hispanic family of all Hispanic families: We only speak in Spanish at home, we only watch Univision and we definitely don't care about the wonderful array of television series available on HBO. My family is super Hispanic, so being a first-generation American made having such an ethnic family difficult at times.
