The Perils Of Being An Asian Woman On Tinder

Swiping left on your dumb expectations.

Posted on

When you’re statistically the “most matched race” for females on Tinder, you’re bound to come across some idiots just fetishizing you.

1. You keep matching with the creeps that have “yellow fever.”

They don’t even care what you have to say, they only care that you’re Asian.

2. They like telling you just how much they know about obscure/uninteresting things from your culture.


Who on Earth even wants to talk about rice cookers? For some reason, they do.

3. They always need to know if you can speak your native language.

Why does it even matter? Would they be able to understand it? Nope. Didn’t think so.

4. Or worse … they try to make themselves sound cultured and say something like, “do you speak Cantonese or Mandarin” when you’re not Chinese.

Uh, good for them that they know there’s a difference? But they’re still an idiot.

5. “So are you (specific nationality)?” “Oh, I could tell.”


The medal ceremony begins at 5.

6. If you have a “unique” name, they ask you what your name means.


7. If you have a “regular” name, they ask you what your Asian name is.


It’s still Maria.

8. “I love sushi.”

9. The assumption that you spend your nights singing karaoke.


Stop. Just stop.

10. When they actually admit that they have a fetish for Asian girls.


11. Any mention of hentai:


It’s never a sentence you think you have to say, but it needs to be done. “No, I’m not into tentacle porn.”

12. When they expect you to be submissive.

How is this still a stereotype?!

13. When guys casually let you know that they’ve “never been with an Asian before.”

14. Hearing every racist comment that could possible be made as soon as they get rejected.


Always a pleasure to be reminded that you’re a stupid chink.

15. Finally un-matching them when you can no longer put up with their crap.

It’s all good though because you continue to live on with your FABULOUS ASIAN SELF.
