I know: Asian Americans had the highest educational attainment level and median household income of any racial demographic in the country, and the highest median personal income overall. Are Foreign Asians the same?
women probably want you to have at the very least an equivalent level of higher education than her probably more so?
what are the average levels of college education among foreign Asian women it seems like many do? especially Chinese?
and when they say college does that mean they've been to college or have a degree? like how ive been to college but have no degree?
I know profiles can say anything? randomly chosen examples
In order for recent Asian immigrants to get to the US, they need to be either refugees or people with means. Those who have means usually have education. Thus the Asians in the US do not represent the cross section of population of their countries. And that is why they stick out like an educated group.
Having said that, there is still a very big emphasis on getting some degree in most Asian countries, the Chinese and Koreans possibly leading the way. In their countries I would dare say that again, it would be less than half.
And then, keep in mind that Asia is a big place and has many poorer countries. In Thailand, Cambodia, the Philippines, many people would like to have degrees but there are no student loans or grants and scholarships are hard to get. Many cannot even finish highschool not because of stupidity but because they need to pay for it; it is not free.
So, I would say that if you take the entire Asian continent which is maybe more than half the world population, the degree holders would still be some 6-15% of the whole. Women? Maybe some 10%.
A brain is a terrible thing to wash!
OK, first, consider that anyone in the US can take 1 class at local community college for $50 and claim that he/she had "some college" education.
Now, some background info on college acceptance rate in East Asia.
In my parent's era (in Taiwan), getting into 4-year colleges were difficult, and students had to study hard to pass the entrance exam and hope they'd be accepted into a good school. Both of my parents did NOT score well enough to get into 4-year university. They went to 2-year trade schools, kind of like Jr. Colleges here.
In the 1990s, Taiwan's department of education started de-regulating and relaxing the rules. Many 2-year colleges transformed into 4-year universities of questionable quality. The result:
http://tangthuy.blogspot.com/2010/10/in ... iwans.html
"Number of colleges and universities: The number increased by 69 in 10 years, from 78 in academic year 1997 to 147 in academic year 2006.
Acceptance rate for colleges and universities: The acceptance rate through entrance examinations in 2006 reached 90.93%, a record high."
At one point I read that college acceptance rate was 97% for the year. This means you have to try REALLY hard to be in the bottom 3% and get rejected.
So what does a college education really mean on some dating profile? Nothing. But if the girl graduated from Todai, Waseda, NTU, NTHU, HKU, Tsinghua, Beida, etc., then yes, her college diploma is worth something.
Something else to remember. And this is a biggie.
Asian girls do NOT like dating guys who they feel are beneath them.
By this, I mean in terms of education. And you won't like it either.
If they really are more educated than you, they will feel somewhat superior...and they'll treat you accordingly. Being talked down to, by your gf, isn't something you'll find fun. You'll find this behavior among western women as well, but it's much more prevalent among Asians.
BUT momopi does have a good point. In China at least, if the girl didn't graduate from a 'high' tiered, well known college or Univ, then her degree may well be worthless and you can tell her to F off
in the states more women than men go to college http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/07/fashion/07campus.html

"Asian girls do NOT like dating guys who they feel are beneath them."
I guess the whole point of me asking this question is were i can go in Asia to avoid this? I think its silly if all these women think ur supposed to be a doctor if their just a average looking girl but i guess this is what happens when women go to college it encourages their http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypergamy
I guess I would end up like this guy even abroad?
If you ever go to China, avoid the College educated women. Chances are they won't give you the time of day once they know your background. I tried dating one once. Horrible experience. There's an entire generation of young pretty girls who are NOT college educated. Some of them may not have even graduated from High School....or even Middle school for that matter....my sister-in-law for one...horrible at academics....dropped out to become a cosmetics salesperson in Guangzhou. Married an ABC and in the states now. Wasn't difficult considering how pretty she was. Also, don't go looking for girls in Tier 1 cities.
You just need to know what to look for and 'maybe' not set your standards too high. That's a whole 'nother issue assuming you ever hit China.
BTW, about that article you linked, there's nothing wrong with being a single bachelor for the rest of your life, assuming that's the life choice that you choose. You really need to experience a long term relationship with the 'average' woman before committing to something like marriage. Some people really aren't suited for marriage. You might be happier just traveling Asia and just having wild crazy 'fun'.
I understand what you mean Keius but how i interpreted that article was more like forced celibacy, he may be single but i don't think he might get much action state wise anyways, I would worry same thing in China or Asia, i may just be paranoid since i have the misfortune of living near Seattle what is or was described as the most educated city in the US http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/co ... 05751.html
That isn't very likely to happen in China or SE Asia even. I could see that happening in Japan though, or South Korea. That does happen for alot of Chinese in China though (the poor).
I really really can't imagine that happening for an American in China, seriously Hell, you could always make use of some of the massage parlors or other 'service' areas that litter the local
landscapes if necessary.
Methinks you worry too much
