    My husband is 6’0 and he is not even the tallest in the family. My husband is an interior designer and is very creative. Stfu on the stereotypes.

    My husband’s former boss in Shanghai, China is from Shandong province (if I remember correctly, my memory is bad) and she is taller than my husband. 😳 She said she is typical height from that region.

    I look up to my husband in all ways! My highest heels have nothing on him. He is tall, handsome, and I have no complaints in the most personal aspects of our marriage. Anyone who dares make any implications has learned the difficult way with me. I am proud of my Chinese husband every second of every day!

    One stereotype I heard a lot is, western women are very wild in the sex and Asian men are supposed to have low self-esteem with their small penis. They generally think AMWF couples would be embarrassed in sex. But this is so unreasonable!

    you are sooooo right! I had girlfriends who, very shyly, asked me that question: but, is it true that…?! arghhh, there are also stereotypes about us though that I heard or felt a lot in China. Like that Western girls are all sluts (sorry for the straightforwardess) and that we are rich. So, every culture has its limits and prejudices.

    Ugh I hate penis stereotype… and unfortunately I have encountered it way too often for my liking from former girlfriends to my own parents…most unfortunately, baby’shower father falls into negative stereotypes although we are no longer together. I did try going out with him for two years, but it was a hopeless situation. ( very cold, workaholic, did not like nor care for sex, had no normal social life, etd.)

    Yeah, unfortunately my Chinese-American husband totally hits the math/ computer stereotype. He’s got a masters in engineering and cyber security, and anything mathematical is damned easy for him.

    But this is also true of my own uber white Baby Brother.

    Height? I laugh. I’m way above average height and my husband is several inches taller than I am.

    As for the wang thing? Anytime any man brings that up, I’m all, “Dude. Your white insecurity is showing and it ain’t pretty.”

    One important thing to improve life and be successful dissociate yourself from negative force ( message, information,people). Bombarded with negative and pathetic information can make a person clinically depressed and suicidal.

    Bad people and bad things are part of life. But you can not be obsessed with them. Just imagine someone who keep bring up and remind you bad thing in your life. That is pretty evil.

    Move on from bad experience. Move on from bad messengers.

    Charlie Munger said well that he refused to think himself as victim. Victimhood is very destructive.

    When I tell people I prefer Asian men, physical stereotypes come up, I just give them the resting bitch face, like why go there regardless…

    I must make an admission. When I first started getting close to my husband, I had this idea that he would be very mild. Mild in an intimate way. I also thought that since I was the American blue eyed, blonde hair, “full chested” woman, I would have to be aggressive (I am not). I considered these stereotypes about both of us! Of course, not true. My husband is a confident man and I didn’t have to try and be something I am not. So, essentially, I am a very satisfied wife. I even make fun of this stereotype after a particularly good “workout”. Lol. I say, “I am the American who discovered truth, but I need to do some more research. “

    I know you get a lot of tall guys in the North (and those that have migrated south), but the average Chinese guy that is from southern China is quite short compared to western men.

    My husband is from Fuzhou in Southern China and he is taller than me in any heels I wear. I’m am American from Finland that is above average in height. My husband Kongfeng aka “King Kong “. Ahhh. Fitting alias.
