Furthemore, many Asiaphiles are major "otakus" who are so into "Asian Culture" (like Manga or Anime or J-Pop) that they'll just go up to any Asian woman they can find -- it looks to the casual observer that they only go after every ugly Asian girl because they only end up with ugly Asian girls, but some of the braver ones have attempted to talk to non-Lucy Liu types (i.e., pretty Asian women) and are quickly met with a dirty look and a cold shoulder -- and then sometimes a punch to the face by the pretty Asian girl's Asian boyfriend. Of course there does exist that 5% of non-Asian men who are attracted to Asian women, are able to tell which ones are pretty, and can and have dated truly beautiful Asian women who are every bit as gorgeous as the current Miss Universe (like Nantucket Red and myself, for example).
Well, I think I should be counted in the 5% too. I think I did well at choosing my girl (although, admittedly photos do not do her justice, does anyone else notice that perspective can really change how much an Asian looks?). Also Im not a Yellow fever havin, weeaboo, with bad skin, and horible personal hygene/style. I have dated plenty of American girls in the past. I think the style element is what really saves my ass from people just grouping me into the nerds who I share my Japanese class with. It seems that my college is a haven for poor predictable wannabe ota (which is a terrible thing, dispite them thinking that being an Otaku is "Cool") who sit around the cafeteria and stare at the Japanese/Korean/Chinese/HK girls with a lustful eye. I just want to get up and smack the shit out of them sometimes. Just grab them by their loose fitting, animu or fail band, shirts (with leather gloves on, of course) and tell them that those girls hate them, and nothing will ever allow them to live out their perverted fantasies about anime characters with said girls. Recently on a "chan" forum there was some hideous dude postin pics of him and his ugly chinese girlfriend (facial prastic... err umm, Plastic, surgery could have done her good). There was a fair amount of guys saying they were fudgly but equally there were people saying she was "hot" or "cute" made me shudder. I mean this girl (not to say something this horrible, but the guy brought it upon himself) had both over pronounced cheek bones and Jaw bones, so her face kinda dipped in a lot between cheek and jaw but was the same width top and bottom. hard to explain I guess, but yeah... About those pictures you posted (the latest ones) Amerikajin: holy Shiiaaatt. those after pics are pretty damn good. And is it just me or does Ayu seem to look more and more white every year. Lately she has been looking super white/western, like she should have stopped a couple years ago.

+1, I have met very few white girls who were as caring, affectionate, and all around purely good nice people and at the same time hot, when compared to my girlfriend/a large amount of my Japanese women friends I am trying hard to be able to speak Japanese and my goal is to be able to be fluent or at least fluid enough to do more than "get by" around Japan.
