    That is an example of a no win question. If I was to have a factual answer that was not what you find truthful due to your preconceived notions you would call me a liar, but if I was to answer the other way I would be a pig. Therefore, the question is unanswerable and not worth dealing with.

    Maybe we wouldn't have to lie if women weren't so damn hard to impress.

    It's pretty rare that I'll make a serious effort to get in a girl's pants (I don't really care enough, under most circumstances), but my friends and I will come up with fake backstories for ourselves before going out all the time. The funny thing is that it usually works.

    One of my favorites is to simply switch all our names around, and pretend like we're from out of town.

    Me: "Hi! I'm Bay. This is my friend, Greg! We're in from Atlanta. What's fun to do around here?"

    Other friend: "Hey!"

    *Flirtatious small talk ensues until Other, other friend who went to the restroom walks up*

    Me: "Hey! I'm Bob! What's your name?"

    Other, other friend: "Hey! I'm Chuck!"

    Me: "Hey Chuck! We're from out of town!"

    Other, other friend: "Nice to meet you! You guys want some shots?"

    Me: "Sure man! People here sure are friendly!"

    *Aside to girls as soon as he leaves* "What a weirdo, amirite?"

    lol
    When I was about your age, I worked for a small software company and one if the salesmen was a really good-looking guy whose first name was the same as mine, and whose last name was incredibly similar (which was a bit extraordinary because we both have uncommon last names). He got the idea to have cards made up with *my* name and work # on them, and he gave them out when to women he was out of town and going out to clubs.

    After just a short time, I started getting a lot of calls from the girls he had met, which was annoying at first. But then I had a good idea - Whenever a girl called up, I played along as if I were him. When they asked how I was doing, I told them "Things are great! In fact, I just got a raise and a promotion. And I'm going to be in your town next week. (Truth is, I usually didn't even know what state they were calling from) How about I stay over for the weekend and we'll meet up on Friday night. I'll pick you up around 8. We'll go have a nice meal and then hit the clubs and party all night!"

    After a few weeks, and not showing up to countless fake dates, the sales guy came into the office from out of town. He sees me and say "Sangha, what are you doing to me?!!". I put on my most innocent face and asked "What do you mean?" He then tells me that he was out at a club and one of the girls he had met there previously walked up to him and started shouting at him about how he didn't show up for the Big Date he had set up with her.

    "Oh, that!!" I said. "Oh yeah, I meant to tell you. You've stood up a lot of women all over the country"

    It started happening all over the country. After a while, he got scared to go to the clubs. He kept meeting up with the angry women he stood up.

    They ought to, because the exact same thing they say they're so concerned about American women doing to them (divorcing and taking everything) is what's probably going to happen with their mail order bride once she qualifies for residency.

    It depends upon the circumstances. Is the average mail order bride looking for love?

    No. Absolutely not.

    However, some Asian women do find American men to be legitimately appealing. Ironically, that attraction often has just as much to do with culture as the reverse.

    By and large, Westerners will treat their women better than many Asian men. Some Asian women appreciate that.

    I actually heard something similar from a black woman in my old Army unit once. She said she was thinking about dating a white man, simply because she thought a white man would be a lot less likely to hit her.

    I'm taking about the type who intentionally look abroad or do "mail-order" type things. Of course, anyone can fall in love with anyone. But these sorts of people aren't looking for love, and that's evident in how they go about it. They're looking for a subservient woman, and what they'll likely get is a gold digger. I can't say they don't deserve each other.

    I am not sure of that my friend.....Judging by the cuts I think Obama is going to turn this country into and Isolationist like it was prior to WW2 even worse.......

    I know one man who will agree with that statement.

    Sure, no doubt. Hell, I've had a touch of that exotic culture attraction myself.

    But the thing is, these kinds of guys aren't going to be the type Asian women looking for a higher standard of relationship want. These kinds of guys are the stragglers of the West who want to treat their woman as badly as the local Asian men treat them.

    That's why they have to do stuff like resort to mail order.

For whatever reason, it's doesn't seem that men are so scorned in other parts of the world- even those in which women have equal rights and are independent-minded.
    Men need respect in a marriage the way women need love in a marriage. If your culture isn't designed to teach men to be loving towards women, and to teach women to be respectful towards men, well, one or more likely both of those genders isn't going to be getting their emotional needs filled, and it's going to poison the relationship.

    Worth noting before anyone decides to launch a collective bra-burning, "respect" =/= "subservience".

    I have to agree. I wonder how many of them get divorced once they become "Americanized?"
