So I’ve been seeing many ads for asianeuro.com lately. Its supposed to be an international dating site–however, the testimonials indicate that it’s for white guys that want foreign Asian women–no Asian men seeking European women allowed apparently. (I found the testimonials particularly cringe worthy when they talk about how they didn’t like the guy but then they did and now they’re married, or how their parents didn’t agree with the age gap. Something rubs me the wrong way about the way they talk about their relationships). However, this company didn’t stop there. They’ve also got afrointroductions.com which is meant to introduce “the world” to African singles. They’re also behind interracial cupid.com for those looking for an “interracial dating experience”. Honestly I’m not sure if my senses are failing me. Maybe they’re just managing to put a creepy spin in their ad copy on perfectly reasonable relationship preferences. Or maybe the notion of trying to introduce “the world” to particular nationalities of women is in fact creepy since it presents them as undiscovered objects and not like people.
