Well hello to you too 🙂
As you can see, due to the apparent lack of any new posts on this blog, it’s easy to conclude that yea, my love life is pretty much in the shitter. Well okay, it’s not that bad. Let’s just say that my love life is on pause. It’s currently loading, in the making, and to be continued. But fear not! I have good reasons! EXCELLENT REASONS, in fact.
Right now, I am at the cusp of transferring from my current community college in suburbia, to a glorious University in the city (San Francisco, California to be exact). I mean think about it! San Francisco was considered one of the BEST cities to live in if you’re an Asian guy. With rich culture, open minded women, and more women, it’s practically the Costco of the dating world!
As many of you may or may not know, I also run a fashion blog along with this blog. Basically, I drive over to San Francisco, walk up to random people on the street who I think are stylish, and I photograph them. Although I could get into a whole conversation about fashion and style, I’ll say this: San Francisco is awesome for all you interracial relationship fanatics.
Whenever I’m out and about, I like to play a game called “How many Asian male/Non-Asian female couples can you spot?” In San Jose (my current location), and if I’m super duper lucky, I’ll score around a 4 or 5, but usually I’m between 1 or 2. Sad, eh? HOWEVER! In San Francisco, I’ll rack up numbers like 15 or 20! At one point, I saw an Asian guy with a cute blonde girl and just across the street, I saw another one! Can you say “JACKPOT?”
Knowing that the grass is truly greener on the other side, I’ve sorta put my love life on hold. It’s kinda like those times when you know you’re going to eat at a really nice restaurant for dinner, so instead of snacking on junk food before, you just hold out so you can pig out during dinner. You starve yourself so once you get your dinner plate, BAM! You go crazy. You tear it up, and wreak havoc on that poor steak. And like that nice innocent steak dinner, I too will go crazy in San Francisco.
Things are really looking up for Asian guys these days. With Asian artists topping the Billboard Charts (Far East Movement), topping the Youtube charts (NigaHiga), and just plain T.O.P, our beautifully angled eyes are seeing a world of possibilities. Asians have found a crack in the system and are marching all 5 billion of us into that door. We’re establishing ourselves without the help of Hollywood, breaking through to the music industry, and improving our self image one haircut at a time.
So what’s in store for interracial dating? Well…I think this pretty much sums up our progress as of now 🙂
