Hahhahahaa this is sooooo true! I can't tell you how many times I've seen a decent-looking Westerner walking hand-in-hand with a homely Asian woman! There are a number of reasons for this... first, as you state, some non-Asian guys just aren't able to differentiate the ugly Asians from the beautiful Asians. Another reason is that some non-Asians are Asiaphiles (and I'm using this word with every ounce of negative connotation that it can muster) and will date any Asian who will concede to date them... Yet another reason is that some handsome non-Asians simply fall in love with ugly Asian women, and are able to see past the Asian woman's physical shortcomings. Still another reason is that (and I'm generalizing here) beautiful Asian women are channeled from an early age into relationships with successful (or soon-to-be successful) Asian male medical students, Asian law school students, successful Asian businessmen, sons of the beautiful Asian girl's parents' well-to-do friends, sons of the parents' Church friends (in the case of Korean-Americans, especially), etc. etc. These beautiful Asian women receive "marriage proposals" while they're still in college complete with full color glossy pictures of their prospective Asian male suitors, their resumes, etc. - and rest assured, background checks have already been completed to ensure that this beautiful Asian women's family will meld perfectly (on a business and socioeconomic level) with the Asian male chosen not necessarily by the Asian girl herself, but by family who recognized from an early age that their daughter was a beauty. Think of it as the modern-day equivalent to arranged marriages. Yet another reason that non-Asian males tend to date ugly Asian females is simply that "beggars can't be choosers", and some ugly Asian women are simply happy that anybody is showing them any attention. Another reason is that ugly Asian women don't receive the same peer pressure from their Asian friends to date inside their race that their beautiful Asian counterparts do. Just look around any college cafeteria -- what do you see? Tables of Asian men and women, with most of the women ranging from mildly attractive to drop-dead gorgeous (those are the ones who were spoken for long ago) and then you'll see, off in the corner, a non-Asian guy eating lunch with an ugly Asian girl while pretending to "teach her English" if she's F.O.P. --- and now you know why.
