"Overall in Vancouver and for our generation, I think it's pretty accepted and common for people from different cultures to date." Yet when it comes to the dating scene, casual racism still exists in many forms.

Cliches are not inherently negative, Chang added, though she does not want to be pigeonholed as the token Asian girlfriend.
"Internally it felt similar to how I try really hard to drive perfectly to fight the stereotype of the 'bad Asian driver'." Chang said she was initially alarmed when she found out her fiance had dated other Asian girls when they first began dating, but she chose to address it seriously.
"I heard people say things like 'Asian women are petite, they age well, and they're loyal and more [sexually] submissive'," she said, adding that she has mainly dated white and Asian men.
Such experiences seem common for many Asian men in North America, where online daters often post statements like "I don't date Asians" or "No Asians".
