Asian american male dating
In late fall of 2015, I ran a survey of 354 Asian men living in the United States on their experiences at work, in dating, and in day to day life.As an Asian man born in China but raised in the US, I feel there’s been a dearth of understanding of the Asian male’s experience.Analysis was performed using Statwing, YC-backed company that offers powerful and intuitive statistical analysis software.You can roughly imagine that the typical respondent to this survey has these attributes: a heterosexual East Asian college grad between 25 and 34 who was born in the US, with parents who were born in Asia.
We included the standard White, Black/African American, Latino/Hispanic, Native American, and broke out “Asian” into three subethnicities of East, Southeast, and South Asian.
According to the Pew Research Center, East Asians make up close to half of the Asian American population, while Southeast Asians make up slightly more than a third, and South Asians, make up a bit over a fifth.
The vast majority of Asian men surveyed were proud to be Asian and felt that their Asian heritage was important to their personal identity.
With that said, we did have a decent sample of men who were South and Southeast Asian (many were mixed), men above 35, and men who born in Asia.
Age Two thirds of the respondents were between the ages of 25 and 34, with just under 18% of them being younger and 14% of them being older.
