I have mixed feelings about this since I have lived in Thailand for awhile. It's also somewhat easier to meet regular girls outside of stereotypical prostitution venues if you're relatively young in the 18-35 age range. It's also easier to get laid without ever entering into the ugly sex tourism nightlife cycle.
Asian men certainly don't have the same social barriers that exist back in the U.S. or other english speaking western country either. All in all i'd say it's still a positive place to be for AA men especially if you are tired of feeling like you have to prove yourself or overcome social expectations all the time. But it definitely doesn't reflect the much harsher reality of dating in the western english speaking world.
I don't feel it's a trap either. Simple because I don't view white American women or any other non-asian woman as somebody that I should be orientating myself specifically for or that it's somehow higher on the dating chain. I know this will come as a bit controversial to say it but I don't care much for the deeper personalities of many white American women i've interacted with or the usual look either.
I like the petite, slender, and sassy look on women. Loads of Latinas and Asian women have this figure/look and carry it convincingly. Your typical american white woman is usually heavier on average and follows U.S. trends and is narrowly shaped by U.S. culture in their attitudes and behavior. I don't give a fig about U.S. pop culture so there's already little to relate to on a deeper level once we get out of that initial stage. A lot of white women have curves and knockout figures but i'm not into the A category (blonde, blue, big breasts) quasi-porn star/pin-up look that JT and other guys seem really into on here. Ironically, when white women think that some asian men don't like how they look in my case that's probably somewhat true.
I have one exception though a lot of eastern european women are gorgeous because they have that lithe figure and darker haired features. I think someone like Olga Kurylenko looks gorgeous but she has that EE "look" that I find attractive. It's ridiculous to point to a supermodel and say "I like a girl that looks just like that!" but her general features are very commonly found in EE women.
I think Anglo women look different but just like any preference nothing is set in stone. A genuinely good personality and person is something no one should ever pass up.
