In our present society, it can be surprisingly hard to meet people—even for those who are more outward. It is easy to live in a neighborhood where you just sit in your house, solitarily, never knowing or interacting with your neighbors. There is a serious lack of community and social functions for people to socialize and meet each other. However, people are also to blame due to a lack of interest in being civilly engaged and a lack of interest in arranging things that better their communities. So, we live in a society where many people have very few to no friends and it is hard to meet people for any type of relationship. It has come to a point where so few people are civically engaged and out in the open that there is a much better chance that you are going to run into people who either are not romantically, have some sort of unbearable issue, are unappealing for whatever reasons and/or a mixture of the three. This may be the reason why more men go for Asian mail order brides.
There are many things that can be blamed for these current conditions. Some people might blame the way that our culture has developed, and attribute certain things that caused the culture to take this turn. Brainwashing from the media is a factor that is frequently spoken of when it comes to the degeneration of societies. Also, things like video games and the internet have been blamed because they tend to keep people glued to screens in their homes and tend to take away the need to go out to amuse oneself.
We are living in a day and age where interracial dating is now more tolerated. This means that a lot of men who are into Asian women may feel less shame about pursuing their tastes. The amount of mixed race kids and couples, in general, is increasing in Western countries. There are still people who are hostile to various extents when it comes to the topic of interracial dating. However, it is not at the same level as it was years ago.
The fact that Asians are model minorities may be another reason why more men are going for Asian mail order brides. “Model minority” is the term for people who are non-white but come from groups that are seen as being more desirable, intelligent and trustworthy than the lowest groups—blacks and Latinos. Asians are generally seen as being intelligent, well-mannered and mild-mannered. They have a stereotype of “being good at math,” and it is true that they tend to excel in American society. They are known for having a culture in which people are pushed to their limits to study, work hard and be as industrious as possible. Also, there are some features of theirs that are seen as being superior to the features of other minorities. For example, they tend to have light skin and straight, sleek, black hair.
