Dating website 2Red Beans has appointed Ignite PR as its retained UK agency following a competitive pitch.The California-based company, founded in 2010, is the leading dating site for Chinese Americans and Canadians and is now looking to the UK market.Having said that, I'm surprised at what British men, both young and old, generally get away with when talking about East Asian women (Chinese, Japanese, Korean etc.) as well as South East Asian women (Vietnam, Thailand etc.) I've heard my Caucasian friends recommend to their male, single mates that they should date “nice Chinese girls”, with the added bonus that Chinese women are far more sexually open-minded than Caucasian girls.One acquaintance told me in wonderment that Chinese women are great in the bedroom – as if I wasn't one – to being casually asked if I’d be interested in a guy “who has been with Chinese girls and likes it”.
“I believe this is the first time [there has been such a scheme] only tailored for wealthy women,” Mr Du told The Daily Telegraph this week during a visit to Shanghai, one of the cities he is tapping for potential husbands.
They are always surrounded by business people or customers so they don’t have much of a chance to meet good guys outside their [immediate] circles.” Wealthy women also faced prejudice from men of their own social class, he claimed.
“Wealthy men don’t necessarily want a wife as successful as them.
I'm talking about when Caucasian men develop an acute sexual preference for East Asian women – even becoming a fetish, for some.
In fact, the most recent figures from 2.4 million users of Facebook dating apps showed a clear skew in preference for women of East Asian descent by men of all racial groups, except, ironically, Asian men.
But China’s super-rich women are facing problems of their own, said Mr Du, not least finding time to scout for would-be husbands.
