Filipino women dating black men
John and Edelisa met on a dating site called Filipino Cupid.
After three months of chatting online, John proposed to Edelisa – before they'd met in person.
You know, there's obvious physical attraction of course. MIKE MIOCEVICH: It was in high school at a high school dance and basically the entire year was basically all mostly white people from like, you know, Perth, but there was one girl from South Africa who had come over, her family had come over so, yeah, went to the dance and, yeah, took her. MIKE MIOCEVICH: If I had any kind of reservations before I didn't have any after, so. Sophie Song, you're in South Korea visiting your Korean in-laws at the moment. SOPHIE SONG: I probably have always had more interest in darker haired, darker eyed people, and what I had found, you know, my experience of the Korean people I had met prior to meeting Han was that a lot of them, by their upbringing, are quite family oriented and that was something that very much appealed to me. SOPHIE SONG: We actually met at a pub, we both had gone with our respective friends and we were watching a football final and basically I met him briefly in the queue at the bar.
I do find, as your guest I just find that I click a lot easier with, like Rudo that I do with other kind of women and"¦ JENNY BROCKIE: She's married by the way? So"¦ JENNY BROCKIE: So you went to the dance with the one black girl in the school? He just approached me and said hello, he introduced himself and then actually we parted ways but a little bit later in the night there was a guy at the bar who was quite persistently talking to me that I was trying to find a way out of the conversation and really struggling and it happened that Han walked past and I saw him and recognised his face and I thought well, here goes nothing and I grabbed his hand and I said to the other guy: "Hey, this is my boyfriend", and even though Han had quite limited English skills, he picked up what was going on in the moment and he, you know, he acted the part and he rescued me. Han, when this happened in the bar you didn't speak English, did you, very much?
He says one of his company's popular events is 'Asian women speed dating', where all the women have an Asian background and the men are from any race.
JENNY BROCKIE: Welcome everyone, good to have you with us tonight. RUDO BANYA: I really don't have a rational explanation as to why, I just am. I think personality wise as well, certain interests and things - I just tend to find that I connect better with Caucasian men. LINDA BENZ: Would be for darker men, African men predominantly is probably where I'm sort of more drawn to.
John specifically sought out an Asian woman for a partner because "Asian women treat western men better than a white woman might".
Edelisa thought a western man would be "better than a Filipino husband" because they're more responsible and provide better for their children.
JENNY BROCKIE: Okay, so had you gone out with any white women before Sophie? I just only dated Korean woman before I met Sophie. HAN SONG: Okay, We used to use electronic dictionary to tell just one word, you know.
JENNY BROCKIE: Okay, but you found white women more attractive or just attractive? It was like a fantasy to me and I thought I can't ever date white woman, I can't ever hold white women's hand or something like that. JENNY BROCKIE: I know it was, it was around six months I think before you two could have a proper conversation? I was, I want to eat something, I couldn't say what I want to eat in English so I just found a word what I wanted in English, in English dictionary and I showed her, I want to eat this.
JENNY BROCKIE: Okay, so it shifted for you with exposure to people from other backgrounds? JENNY BROCKIE: Okay, Jennifer Lundquist in Boston you've looked at racial preferences with dating.
