While dating sites like Planet Love Match® can help you find romance all over the world, some singles still get stuck in their comfort zones. JT Tran, who calls himself The Asian Playboy, has been successful helping Asian men gain confidence, shatter stereotypes, and embrace women from all cultures as dating options.
"Perceptions that Asian men are small, misogynistic, effeminate and asexual can make it extremely difficult for men to truly believe that they can have any woman that they want because they feel as though the odds are already stacked against them, regardless of what they do or say," Tran says. With his ABCs of Attraction seminars, "we're showing them that yes, if you are confident, these women will be attracted to you regardless of race."
